    I’M afraid I can’t tar everyone with the same brush Ann but I think I’M going with minority rather than the majority of home cooks :-)

    • You may be right Roly … folks at work needing to save time’ and you said yourself ‘modern day working means no time to actually cook’ maybe you are right in that respect, but in my experience, as I said, it’s not so, so I guess we are the lucky ones :good: :-) :rose:
