Now that the decorations are down and the dusty bits wiped down with a damp cloth, it’s time to get down to saving time and money again. This year we will be trying to learn from last years mistakes and will update you on any progress …or mishaps!
I have just invested in a Yoghurt maker, and will be testing it out and will let you know how it goes. We eat a lot of yoghurt in this house, and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to buy ‘real’ yoghurt that hasn’t been mucked about with, unless you buy organic..and that’s expensive! In my quest to save more money and eat better, I thought I’d have a go. The results of a family taste test will be published!
Go to the Cooking section to read all about it!
Grow Your Own
Also, we hope to do a small piece on the pro’s and con’s of growng your own. We do, and there are moments of great joy, as well as failures and pitfalls. We are NOT jumping on the bandwagon and advising all and sundry to try to feed a family of four from a few pots on a balcony in a high rise flat. We’ll tell you truth, all of it, whether it’s what you want to hear or not!
Fed up with expensive bread that tastes of soggy carboard and goes green the next day, we have been experimenting with various bread mixes, both hand made and using a breadmaker, and will post the results soon.
In the meantime, Google some interesting recipes for leftover Turkey, polish off the dregs of the sherry, and pop back soon!
