    Yesterday was a NSD, as I was at a conference all day and they fed me for nothing :D

    Made a cup of tea this morning, only to find the milk has gone off, so had to chuck the rest. Wasnt too much left, thankfully.

    But that meant I had to go to the shop to get some more. So, rather than get it from my local shop that charges a fortune, I decided to go to Aldi and Asda and get the weekend veggies at the same time and some cheese that will last us the rest of the month at least.

    Spent £8.92, so off to update the signature. Well under budget this month; need to try to keep it up.

    Another NSD for me today and hoping to keep it that way until Sunday when I know we will need some more F&V etc.

    Dinner tonight is our usual Friday night Fish, HM chips and mushy peas.;)

    Have a good evening everyone.:D

    I will be using some of the potatoes I bought earlier for tonight's tea. Thought I would see how far I can stretch one of those small cans of tuna (I have a heap of them in the cupboard). So, the plan is - tuna in a cheese sauce with veggies, topped with mashed potatoes.

    Then use the second half of the tuna tomorrow, adding onions, mushrooms and chopped tomatoes and serving with pasta.

    Have just made some HM bread in my breadmaker (first time it has had an outing for years). Not sure what has happened to it - looks ok, feels light enough, but is very short, like about two inches. I was epxecting it to be about 5 or 6 like it used to be when I used the BM before.

    [BTW, where has the smiley with the shrugging shoulders/arms gone??]

    OK I have worked out what went wrong with the bread. I apparently bought yeast that is for handbaked bread and therefore needs reactivating before use. I didnt do this, so result - bread that hasbnt really risen.

    Anyone know if it will be ok to eat? And what I might be able to do with it??
