Joanna I can get to it if I use the strap-line at the bottom of your posts but not by the Global Link near the spanner at the top of posts.

I'll try that again!

Yup, weird sometimes.  Mine wouldn't start up the other day, kept telling me to choose restore last session or start as usual.  Eventually it started, after 7 goes at it.

I'll try that again!

munching down the store cupboards has been a challenge , finally got to the end of all my breadmaking flour and mixes today , made a couple of monster pizzas with various odds and ends and none of them noticed it was a multigrain brown base , that will become a regular . currently building up my dried bean and pea mountain for the winter ,and debating what to do with all the boxes of spelt in the cupboard my excuse was 10 boxes for a £1 !! ...I actually won something online the other day , a big box of cereals from Dorset Cereals, ive now loads of oats breakfast packets for winter , multipacks of cereals and ive managed to hide the wholemeal cereal in cornflake cakes for the kids strangely enough the day after Jordans cereals sent me a box of freebies as well

Congratulations Kaye, it's about time you had a bit of luck.  I keep trying the 'spin the milk-bottle' but I've not yet won anything.  Mind you, I don't eat cereal so I'm obviously hoping for the big prize...wink

I'll try that again!

Do you use the same proportions as if you had plain wheat flour?

I'll try that again!

I would also reckon that it is to do with weight...while it is sitting under those supermarket lights it loses moisture so has to be reduced so that it isn't flaunting those trades description acts that use do be British alone but I guess tainted now by the EU.

Try it on the scales next time...but still snap it up if it's a bargain...I would...winkwink

Todays episode of the poverty plan.... as of tomorrow were back to just 5 maybe 6 to feed , the long holidays have been an experiance ive been cooking for 9 most days , so today ive indulged myself and created more cook in sauce muffins , todays batch are Hoisin and shitake mushroom plus cheesy apple scones with real cheese....im not sure if i can cope with the luxury. The cupboards are pretty full i dragged my daughter and her friend round a load of my bargain shops and they were suitably horrified at how you can feed a family our size for £40 a week . find of the week a butcher who sells liver and kidney 2lb for £1 , pork and ham hocks for £1.50 each , a bag of pigs trotters for £2 ......he has an awful lot of foreign customers maybe thats a good sign ?
