    I could if I'd thought to when I made it but it was also overcooked. It was handy for breakfast on the run today with getting up late. I bake my own bread, slice, and freeze it. That way I know I won't be tempted to cut thick slices....and its handy for toast for my daughter if she drops in for some dinner...
    When I make curries, chilli, or stews and such my recipes are mostly family sized ones so I eat a portion, put one aside for the next day and freeze the rest so I have my homemade ready meals for when I've not the time,energy, or just don't want to cook.....

    Dinner: 2 slices of the burgen bread with pate (had 3 yesterday but bs spiked to 8.2 - won't be buying it again as its really sweet - just a good job I had bought the pate)

    Just tried these. Couldn't eat a whole bag at once but interesting alternative snack. Has anyone else tried them?

    No, but they could be nice ... Do they do just salted?
    I tried salted popcorn and its surprisingly quite nice. As with those Kale chips I couldn't eat a full bag either.


    Pate given me heartburn :(:(
