Now, there's an interesting idea, Chookie, I would never have thought of that.  Do you pop the corn in the TMX as well?  I'm thinking it would have to be a very small quantity.

Quite a few friends and colleagues have now asked for the recipe for Nuts and Bolts and some of my neighbours have hinted - none too subtly - that if I should make some more, please to remember them.

Anyway, I decided I would probably have to make another batch for our Xmas visitors and had a terrible time finding the two soup mixes.  I eventually found the French Onion one, but the chicken was a challenge.  I went to the two biggest supermarkets near us and neither of them had it.  In the end I tracked some down at our IGA in Castlemaine so I will stock up with a few whilst I can.  If anyone here is having trouble sourcing the chicken soup mix, let me know and I will be happy to grab a couple for you.

Marina, I always buy several packets of both soup mixes when I see them. The supermarkets hide them on the bottom shelves. Iíve made 3 lots of nuts and bolts this year.

Everyone must be making nuts & bolts Marina if you had that much trouble finding some at this time of the year. Mind you, the weather has been crazy and Iíve been having quite a soup meals these past couple of weeks.

That is exactly where I found them, Chookie.

Iíve found the staff in the supermarkets a lot more helpful of late.

I agree with that, Chookie - it's those blessed self serve tills that I hate and loathe.  Whenever I am lucky enough to get a person serving me I always make it obvious that I much prefer the personal communication and ask that they pass on the comment to their boss.

I made these yesterday.  I wasn't able to find chicken soup mix so bought the spring vegetable mix and they turned out alright.

I'll have to remember that as I sometimes have trouble finding it.
