I bet it is! My oldest is 18 and talking of leaving home next year, my 16 year old will probably go to a different city for uni, but by then the baby will be taking over where she left off!

I was thinking something with raisins/oats.
I can't eat wheat but can deal gluten and other grains - coeliac test was negative. Must be really difficult being gluten free - difficult enough avoiding wheat. Have got a great recipe for chocolate cake which uses ground almonds rather than flour.

I did loads of baking when my children were youngsters - flapjacks were good and easy to put into lunchboxes - oats, butter, golden syrup, brown sugar - maybe a bit sweet for today's health conscious times. Try the recipe search on www.cuisine.co.nz

try this one
Pickled Pork Provençal
Cooking time : about 2 hours

6 - 8 servings

1kg pickled pork
2 - 3 c water
3 - 4 T olive oil
2 large onions, sliced
1 - 2 egg plants, sliced
2 - 3 courgettes, sliced
1 - 2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 400g cans tomatoes in juice
1 red pepper, sliced
1 T tomato paste
freshly ground black pepper
chopped parsley

If necessary, tie the pork into a compact shape using string. Place the pork on a rack in a roasting pan. Pour the water into the pan. Ensure the water does not touch the pork. Place a piece of foil over the pan to completely enclose the pork.

Cook the pork in a preheated oven, 170°C, for 1 hour.

While the pork is cooking, prepare the vegetable mixture. Heat 1 T of the oil in a frying pan. Add the onions and cook until soft. Remove the onions and set aside.

Place the remaining oil in the pan. add the egg plant. courgettes and garlic. Cook over a moderate heat for 3 - 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in the onions, tomatoes and juice, red pepper and tomato paste. Season with black pepper.

Place the partly cooked pork in a large casserole dish. Pour the vegetable mixture over. Cover.

Cook at 170°C for a further 45 - 60 minutes or until the pork and vegetables are tender.

To serve, place the vegetable mixture on the base of a serving dish, slice the pork and arrange the slices along the centre of the vegetables. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.

Healtheries Bircher Muesli is great - and it's wheatfree - can't get it everywhere but Pak&Save stock it - surprising, as it's more expensive than most.

Fantastic - how did you do that so quickly?? - great recipe for a family gathering - with 5 sons and a daughter, all with partners/spouses - someone once asked if the plural of spouse was spice - I'm always looking for dishes I can just bung in the oven and forget.

We miss Gammon too. Its one of OH's favourite meals.... or was. We get all our meat from the local butcher here..... when we ask for bacon slices he cuts it twice as thick as normal for us as he knows now thats how we like it.... not this thin see-through stuff.

As for crisps.... I think they are pretty yummy here.... plenty of flavour on them... just how I like them.

flapjacks! I remember my mum making them! I will have a look at the website, thanks for the tip. We always baked as kids, we took it turns to bake a cake or something on Sunday so I should be quite good at all this, out of practice I suppose!

Hub was negative for coeliac too, but so far the diet is helping his symptoms. It was hard to begin with but gets easier as you get to know what to avoid!

Now Tizer... I remember - used to come in long glass bottles with those rubber and metal tops - think only swanky lagers use them now!
