    Oh dear, I think I officically went off track this month in a big way. I can't even remember what the total is! Disgraceful I know!
    Hopefully April will be a bit more organised!
    Too many people spend money they earned..to buy things they don't want..to impress people that they don't like...:cool:

    Congratulations! And what a good excuse! A male or female "new addition" can I ask?!

    By the way which is your favourite bread recipe, is it one from the recipe section on MSE? I make my dough in the BM then bake in the oven but always seem to end up with really dense bread - if I can only figure where I'm going wrong I could save more on bread too, as it is i have to buy bread for the rest of the family and only I eat the hm stuff :(. Anyway, see you all over in April GC :)[/QUOTE]

    I do the same with my bread. I make it a bit wetter than recommended, put in luke warm water, leave it in the BM until it rises to the top of the machine, take it out, knock it back and then make into the shape I want and leave it to rise to double the size before baking.

    I leave it on a greased tray covered by a tea towel on my underheated floor.

    It has a light airy texture very different than the loaves in the BM.

    The recipe is the one for bread rolls in the Morphy Richards book and has melted butter in.
    GC Jan £318/£350, Feb £221.84/£300, Mar £200.00/£250 Apr £201.05/£200 May £199.61/£200 June £17.25/£200
