  • Thanks Dink1, i did know, but always like to be reminded coz I often forget (they say its old age, I say it's coz i know so much something has to fall out!:rotfl: )

    Oh I love that! I will have to remember it next time I forget something! Trouble is-in order to do that, something else will have to fall out!:rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Just postponed tomorrows Asda delivery as Ive got no room for it. Went out for the Daily Mail today for the free cd which hubby wanted-again. Ended up shopping in Somerfield and Iceland so Ive probably got enough for the week now. Shame the milk offers are ending tomorrow :+( but Ive no room anyhow. Just watered down my cravendale as described before as its the fullft version. Measured 2 pints into a jug and added half a pint of water. I did this last week too-just added water by guesswork to the bottle. Nobody noticed and it was still good enough on the cornflakes too.
    Had an easy cook dinner today. Iceland have:
    4 pack of Brains faggots 74p
    Twinpack Dr oetaker pizzas(sp) £2
    1.8kg sausages £2
    Mornflakes oats 2kg £1.75
    Sugar 75p
    Family pack tomatoes 1 kg £1.50
    Velvet toilet rolls(pack of 6) £2

    Somerfield have a pack of 3 peppers on at £1 at present(£1.75 in Iceland)

    I stocked up on whoopsied bread-enough for the week. Baskets now removed from freezer-almost needed to sit on the lid!

    Bought some parsnips and cooking apples full price ans I really wanted to do the parsnip and apple soup tonight with the veg stock from what I cooked for dinner.

    Spent approx £30 on food today so still have £40 left for the rest of the week-though I hope to only spend half ot that.

    To all the newbies-you are now in with the "in crowd"-its the place to be! Big welcome-visit daily-the rewards are enormous :j :j :j :j :j

    Hi,

    My online shop has just been delivered, it was £84.37 which leaves me with £65.63 for the rest of the month. I should only need fruit, veg,yogurts and nappies, everything else i have. They didn't have any Tesco nappies so substituted them for Pampers. They were £1.09 more expensive and had 4 less nappies in them.:eek: so i sent them back.

    Thanks, might try this out for DS- he is 11 months :)

    I've updated the recipe with a pic :p I made them without the sesame seeds as nuts/seeds are a (slight) choking hazard for under threes. Hope he likes them.

    HI Angelatgraceland,
    thanks for answering my plea on the top it says Maranello but I dont know what model it is am trying to google it to find out exact model. It has 14 settings and 3 crust types. it does jam, dough, pasta dough and pizza dough (as well as bread) but not sure what ingredients you would use. Any recipes (basic to start with ) would be very much appreciated thanks

Also invested in some seeds yesterday, dont have a garden atm but have put everything in pots and mixed them in with the flowers, hope theyre enjoying the rain today :-S
