Panda   Hope the extractions aren't too bad - I actually had two wisdom teeth taken out with a three-month-old baby Wonky laying on my lap!  I think I must've been mad

I meant to say - I use silken tofu in a carton.


While I was i**ning OH just rushed out and got the washing in for me and draped it around a radiator for when the heating comes on in the evening - now the rain is hammering on the west-facing windows!  Phew - just in time - it was nearly dry

Hi Kitty

I'm not vegetarian but I do like a lot of vegetarian food (but not quorn )

I had a bad cholesterol reading recently so we've decided to eat demi-veg during the week and only eat our usual diet at weekends. 

I always press tofu for about an hour before marinading to remove a lot of the water.  If you freeze it for a few hours after pressing it will absorb even more flavour.

Info here


I'm also a member of a food forum which has a vegetarian membership and section - it's run by a group of friends and not allied to any business or organisation - you and your daughter are welcome to have a look and even join if you like.  The first few posts are Moderated and won't appear until they've been checked to avoid spammers, but once you've posted a few times it's as simple as on here.

Of course he should be getting Attendance Allowance!  My aged Ps had it for years while they were still at home and carers were coming in during the day - they still got it in the Lovely Home - it helps them pay for their care there! 

There's a possibility that you're also entitled to Carer's Allowance.
