I am only part way through the magazine there is a nice selection of tray bakes that needs closer inspection I believe some of them with a bit of tweaking could be good for gluten free,
Will have to get back to that as a couple of the girls and their children at work are gluten intolerant.
I am slowly getting my sweet jars for pantry storage. yippee will be a lot easier to store in bulk which is what I tend to do. I have been buying here and there the odd sweet jar for storing my base ingredients in. Believe it or not this all stemmed from the fact that I wanted to get back to making my own Muesli and Granola. I used to do this when the children were home and I had a few jars then but for some unknown reason they ended up going; however this time there is a grander scheme in mind and in the planning.
I don't think I will get through this but I will be home earlier after physio so i just might.
