Re: Sosmix

We buy our local wholefoods warehouse's version of Sosmix and I use it for 'meat'balls, baked in a tomato etc sauce, really really delicious, though it sends me out of my mind rolling the meatballs! I'm not veggie but find Sosmix one of the nicer veggie processed thingies - generally I'm not too kee...

Re: Cloth Sanitary Pads !!

Just wondering which ones you have been using?Good luck with the baby on the way.. Thank you - could be any day now, eeeep! I ordered cotton tops with bamboo inside, and as I was planning to use them post-baby I got the 'heavy flow' sort. To keep the price down I took advantage of their six-for-fiv...

Re: Cloth Sanitary Pads !!

Hi. Obviously a while since I last used one, but I used to keep a large plastic tub on the cistern (an old marg tub sort of thing). When a towel went in I would pour any old water down the loo prior to flushing then fill the tub with fresh cold water, so most towels would have had at least a couple ...

Re: Question for home educators

I think that a mixed class size of 10 would get similar results as home ed We don't home educate, but only because my husband feels school is best for our daughter (I'm not going into all that, he isn't an ogre, genuinely believes it's right for her, lovely man, school nice, daughter not traumatise...

Re: immune boosters?

Has it already begun this year? I only ask as children can grow out of this sort of susceptibility. On the basis that you're feeding her all the usual immune-boosting foods, you could look at anything undesirable that's crept into her diet. The obvious baddies at this time of year are sweet festive ...

Re: Bunged up Baby

Poor little thing, that sounds really grim. the only thing that came to mind was a steamy room, it always seems to help with decongesting, which should make her a wee bit more comfy. All a bit of a drop in the ocean though when she sounds so grotty.

Hope she's feeling a great deal better very soon.

Re: sinking cakes.....why?

I used to have this problem and was determined to overcome it for cakes to take to my daughter's school. As well as all the above, the wrong size baking tin can be a problem (cake can be too deep/shallow) as can over or undermixing. I used to beat hell out of my ginger cake mixture in the food mixer...

Re: What's for dinner?

We had sausages with stewed apple, onions and potato and butter bean mash - the mash wasn't all that amazing, wouldn't bother with it again. Spot the deliberate mistake - yep, I forgot to cook any veg! Only realised when I came to serve up. Ah well, preghead, who'd be without it??

Re: What's for dinner?

ooh! a day off that sounds nice............ It's bliss! Completely unofficial, just a day when I don't do any housework and make a very easy supper. I made soaps and Christmas cards yesterday which felt fine as it was my soi-disant day off, would have felt very neglectful of the housework/laundry/c...
