Pat - could you tie your OH to the stove and get him to do a bulk bake ..... I could contact my brother who's on holiday in Aus at the moment - he could ship a load back in his suitcase when he returns - I'm sure your OH will find bro finds a way to make a profit for both of them

If you listen to the Archers ....

If the current storyline featuring Helen and Rob is making you feel uncomfortable .... if you relate to it, or if, thankfully, you don't ............ if like many of us you have a wonderful partner ........ or if you know someone who used to be confident and outgoing and now you worry about them ............... there is something we can do ...

Shouldn't there be some sort of National Reserve stashed away somewhere in case of flood, storm and tempest ........... not to do so strikes me as negligence by HM Government

Brilliant   When you cut it back make sure you shape it so that it's wider at the bottom than the top - keep it that way and the problem won't happen again.

Dove just looked back your pies look great, how you made the sausage and egg pie?

Short crust pastry on the bottom of pie plate.  Six butcher's sausages - take their skins off , combine into one lump and put the meat into the pie spread out with three hollows in it - break a fresh egg into each hollow - put shortcrust pastry on the top, slash, decorate and glaze and bake for 10 mins at 180C fan and then turn down to 160C and bake for another 25 mins.  Cool.
