    Oh no:eek:

    I use a hand blender first to get it to a stage that is easier to whisk first. Much much easier.

    Hope it gets fixed :(

    I ended up having to use my hand blender when the processor stopped working. Luckily it turned out that it wasn't broken after all, I just hadn't clipped the bit from the blender part back into place properly, so the main bowl wasn't clipped in place, lol! :o I only discovered this yesterday while trying it, just in case, after spending the past week thinking it was going to cost me about £50 to replace it with an equivalent one, so quite relieved, lol!

    What a great bit of luck NickJW, don't feel guilty it's their mistake so just enjoy it!

    I made some more banana ice cream yesterday, with the YS bananas I got at the weekend, and we had some tonight with some fresh pineapple, which was only 69p. OH brought home over 2 kgs of bananas yesterday, which he was given free because the Mr S where he works had over ordered, which saves me having to buy any for snacks at work, and if any get over ripe I will make a banana cake or muffins with them.

    I've not spent any more since my last post, so declaring for July at £112.68.

  • Hey, I've seen a few other's posting this in there signature bar, I've finally decided to have a look-see to try and understand how it works (not how I thought at least!).

    My money disappears atm, and the only thing I can think of that I buy is food, so I want to try and budget how much I spend. I would like to try £100 next month, so with half a month left, I'll say £50 for the rest of the month if that's alright?

    Hi minicooper, this is an old thread; you'll need to join in at the current grocery challenge for September which is here

    If you have any questions post them there and someone will be along to help, GC'ers are a friendly bunch and very supportive of each other.

    Good luck with the challenge!
    ... don't throw the string away. You always need string! :D
