Thankxxx Mitchie Moo!!
keep raiding the cupboard!! - I'll be back making my own bread at this rate

I used to buy a massive block of proper yeast & cut into small chunks & freeze - works fine - but local baker won't sell it now - so have to buy small bits from health-food store where I feel guilty if I only spend 12p (and where their home-made homity pies & gorgeous seeded bread & carrot cake & oh oh are impossible to resist)

trinity1 - glad to hear of someone else keeping the local milk round going - yes - I hope it's still going when I get old!!

Hipps, your Snot Soup recipe is similar to one of mine, only I base it on lentils and add leftovers and pellets of frozen spinach. We call it Garden Pond.

what kind of lentils?

Imelda--no, but i wil look for the dried broad ones when next in london or brum

Yer standard pink lentils. Split peas take a little longer to cook but any smaller-grain dahl is good too. I throw in a handful or two after I've softened the onion and added a tsp of curry paste, then add the water or stock.

I saw a lovely recipe for chick pea and spinach soup-think it was on the river cafe kitchen

This thread is giving me loads of ideas. I've only read the first and last page. Will definately read the other pages.

Rice and lentils. Add some uncooked onions to the lentils and add some soy sauce. Cost pence and feeds loads.

Pasta and a tin of toms. Giveaway.

Aubergine sliced longways - nuke it for a few mins. Spread with sauce (pesto) and add some cheese and grill. Slobber...
