Re: Supermarket Online Shopping

I've fallen into a trap in the past of buying things when Ts sent me a money off voucher because 'I'll use it sometime' - they sent vouchers for things you'd bought before. OH like gravy with his dinner. I still have an unopened 5 yr old drum of Bisto. + one nearly used + I gave one to my daughter. ...

Re: Supermarket Online Shopping

I go to my local co-op for bits and pieces. If I go about 8.30 on Sunday evening there are few shoppers and the staff haven't started the big tidy up. Agree with LL that things have got lax. I had a problem with my card and the person who came to look pulled down her mask to talk to me. I have had a...

Re: Christmas cake for 2021

Different ovens need different settings. Mine is gas and I know when I got a new one I had to lower my gas mark 2 to 1.5 (better insulation ?).

Re: Any one watching BBCs 'The Serpent'?

Why depress yourself.
I read fiction rather than watch drama but I have surprised myself recently by not finishing every book that I get my hands on, if they are too gloomy. Not that I want all happily ever after, but some topics strike a personal chord so why risk it.

rehoming v selling

A bit on the radio today saying that rehoming centres expected a lot of dogs bought at the start of lockdown would soon come to them for rehoming, but because of the steep increase in price of dogs they are being resold instead. In my area at least there has also been a surge in thefts of dogs. It s...

indeed.
Make sure you wash out all the breadcrumbs and dry them well or the go mouldy or musty.
When they are too tattered for reuse I think Terracycle takes bread bags.

Re: Christmas cake for 2021

My father used to make his own marzipan. I soon discovered how much easier ready made was. But I never thought ready-made icing tasted the same as Royal (with real egg-whites). The there was the Salmonella scare, so I just use water icing now (with a dash of lemon juice of course) I did use ready ro...

Re: Looking for a Proper Christmas Pud

The beauty of Christmas is left-overs. With proper planning they last beyond Twelfth Night - even into February. And the choccies might even last till Mothers Day (and another box)

Re: Christmas cake for 2021

I would ask Mo, Spreckly as she has already made hers. And eaten a good part of it! I suppose it depends on the recipe how long it keeps. I think the cake OH's grandmother gave us one time was over a year old, and there is a thread here mentioning cakes 3 yr old, wedding cake top tiers being kept f...
