Gert I can't wait to meet you. I love your sense of humour.

Shame on you Gretchen - fancy not knowing about Tenina's Cranberry & Almond granuesli recipe on page 23 in FFS.  It is the best version going around and I am not really a cereal or muesli lover at all.

Too funny. I did not see that recipe and if I did see it I would have flipped the page quickly.

Now I am going to have to get out of bed and look it up.

It is seriously good. I made a whole batch and took it away with me over Easter with some friends. It got demolished in no time at all.

I've just booked my flights and will be arriving on Thursday afternoon. I can't believe it - I'm actually doing this!

I think it is lacking in balance. Very sweet with NO chili!

OMG never hear of it. Gotta get some NOW or make it. Got some fresh ginger in the fridge. Maybe slice and dry it in the oven then blitz it  with some  fresh dried chillies which  I always have. Gunna look it up,right now. Go well with granuesli I reckon.

Thanks for that goldfish.

Gert, that looks great. I'm addicted to affogato, a sprinkle of that over the top, how good would that be. Love chillies too.
