I don't think so Chris, looks like a spammer to me, especially since it's got what looks suspiciously like links to a website that's flogging something casually inserted throughout wink

No doubt TA will spork when she arrives.

Good morning madam TA, and how are you now you've flexed your muscles with vigorous use of your spork ? big_laugh

Feeling mighty fine now thank you Sue.  I wonder what they get out of doing that kind of thing?  It didn't even make sense, at least the first two lines didn't so I wasn't going to spend time reading the rest.

How are you feeling today Sue?

I'll try that again!

Very thoughtful of you to post two messages, one for each ear, TA winkbig_laugh

I'm feeling quite a bit better now thank you, beginning to get the hang of this exclusion diet thing.  My stomach is loads better, the oral thrush has gone for the mo, although my mouth and tongue still get a burning feeling now and then (think it's if I inadvertently eat something that disagrees with me, like yesterday when I absentmindedly licked the golden syrup spoon when making flapjacks for Steve eeekembarassed).  My eczema is subsiding too, except for one or two patches which keep flaring up.  The main problem I seem to still be having is feeling so shattered, especially when I've done even the most easy and basic bit of cooking or housework.  But I'm getting there.  Thank you for asking big_hug

Well, I didn't want to shout in case it upset you!  big_laugh  Good to know that you are improving my dear, keep at it and then you can start to find out what it is that is making you so unwell.

I'll try that again!

wave Hi Sue,

So glad you are feeling a bit better, it must give you a bit of a lift to know things are working their way through your system. I know it takes a very long time for some people; when I had the restaurant I used to feel so sorry for some of my customers that I started reading up on various ailments, then I started cooking 'specials' for them & eventually they passed the word around & would often ring me ahead of coming in so I had a bit more time to prepare things. I did rather well out of it as I was the only place in town who cared. I had to keep everything separate & had special pans & chopping boards etc.

Thanks Nadine, I am feeling a lot more positive now.

Oh, I received the Andrew Whitley Bread Matters book yesterday, along with another book I'd ordered which is for a yeast (and other things) free diet.  I spent all afternoon reading the yeast-free book, once hubby has gone to work in a couple of hours I'll sit and read the Bread book.  I did have a quick flick through it and was most impressed to see the list of alternative flours he gives, along with explanations as to how they work when using them and in what proportions to use them - how extremely useful!  Never seen that before, it's going to come in so handy.

Thanks again for recommending that book, Nadine, I'm sure it's going to be well used big_hug

As the chicken livers are now cooked in the pate, Chris, I don't see why it can't be frozen.  Never tried freezing pate myself though, and have no wish to see you poisoned after taking my advice eeek, so perhaps someone else might offer an opinion too?

Thanks Sue, that is sort of my opinion too but we'll see.

 

Glad you feeling somewhat better, often half the cure is often the return of optimism.
