    Morning all

    Well it is a NSD day for me, which I am pleased about, have brought my lunch in to work as I do most days and got my meal all planned for tonight.

    Also, I have just realised that the Asda shop I did yesterday also contains some bits and pieces for the OH flat which he will give me the money for so am looking forward to working that out when I get my delivery tomorrow and changing my sig to a lower amount spent :j :j

    another quickie, as I forgot to get the oats for the hobnobs, do you reckon I could use chocolate porridge (another thing I got that no one likes)?

    victory - on another thread someone mentioned using the liners from cereal packets to separate things in the freezer. I've used it myself and it's much better than greaseproof paper.

    GONA HAVE A GO AT THE CHOC AND ORANGE MUFFINS TOO WAS THANKING WHAT ELSE COULD I BACH COOK FOR THE SUMMER WAS THINKING MAYBE A QUICE BUT DONT HAVE RECIPE DOES ANY ONE HAVE ONE PLEASE

    hi mummyleads, i've just seen your post......funny you should ask, i've just put a pastryless quiche in the oven about half an hour ago!!
    you need:

    300g tub cottage cheese
    6 eggs
    salt and pepper

    beat all the above ingredients together in a jug or a bowl
    in a quiche or flan dish, you can put some bits of ham or corned beef, onion,peppers whatever you fancy
    pour over eggy mixture and you can decorate it with some slices of tomato

    put in middle of oven at 160 for about 40-50 mins till firm

    i always make the pastryless one, and when its cold you can just slice it up and freeze it if you like

    this is a lovely summer tea, with salad and a jacket potato :D

    Hey Gang...not stopping cuz I gotta go out in a short while:o

    MrsM, hope your family news wasn't too bad....must be difficult sometimes being so far away. Me muvva said that when my aunt was poorly & it's only a two-hour drive at the eight of the rush hour, but it's not like you can pop in for a cuppa either.

    Re: IP2W it used to be repeated on a Sunday morning, with added bits too. How much was the second trolley then...cuz one of the ofspring turned ovr during the ads when I was otherwise 'engaged' & I forgot all about it till 9pm:p

    Spent £6-80 before 7:30 this morning:eek: We've a relief milko & he left a note askng for payment to be left out---not round here you don't! unless you want to pay twice, but I managed to catch him thanks to Pup being on watch;)

    A TENS machine & extra pads+batteries =£18-48 in Lloyds chemist
    Anti-bac cream £4-39 in Boots
    Butcher's pack of beef bones to make stock for Pup's 'spag bol'=£1
    Pet shop doz eggs & local toms=£2-32
    Need to check my bill for MrT cuz the till accepted £1:50 in coupons & only took off 22p:mad:
    Fruit shop +2 net bags=£8-48, but been over-charged 99p there too:mad:

    Not doing very well am I?:( So I'll say £40-31 & IF I get a refund, I'll add it back in.
