I am looking forward to the Paella. It has been jonks since I made it. AAAAND yesterday evening I have ordered some Vital Wheat Gluten which is costing me an arm and a leg but I thought it would be great to make special occasion meals with. I wish I could find a place that sells the stuff around here but I guess Wigan is not exactly the Culinary High-Life Hub of the British Isles... bugger. My poor neighbor is ill and I have just shoved my latest experiment in the oven. I am hoping to have made some very yummy and scrumptious muffins, fat and sugar free... hopefully.
