    That's interesting. I never thought of taking my own food and combining it with suitable cafe food with their permission. As long as you contribute something to their income that seems fair.

    How much buckwheat can you tolerate? I make sauces and gravy with it. It's cheaper than other ground stuff!
    And what are you cooking on?
    End of inquisition.
    Have a good day :)

    And, in a sneaky supper, a couple of sausages the kids hadn't eaten. A bit too much protein, but then again I did hit the weights yesterday so I'm technically bodybuilding :rolleyes:

    B: chia seeds and stuff with rasps.... still got some fresh.
    L: cold chicken celery olives, bit of cheese and a load of sauerkraut...
    D: loads of haddock covered in almond flour, broccoli and yet more sauerkraut.... and then some cherries.... may have overdone them..... off to do BG's soon to find out.

    I suspect one day I might tire of chia seeds-coffee-cocoa-peanut butter but at the moment I'm finding it just the ******** first thing in the morning, which is (i) surprising to me and (ii) doesn't give anything else a look in....
    nothing is forever though.
