Missus is working today, so I may give that a go, and if she`s lucky save one or 2 for her. I know my mum normally makes them. Actually, maybe I`ll just go buy a packet :)
I`m also tempted to make some hot cross buns
but again, I`m lacking some of the ingredients, so I`ll probably just end up buying some pre made, avoiding the inevitable disappointment if I do a "King Alfred" ;) The missus got some in M&S teh other week which were very good, that`s too far to go, but Tesco Express will have their Finest ones
The perfect plan, I can buy some of your shredded wheat nests, some hot cross buns, take them out their packets. print off the instructions for making both and leave them in the kitchen, sprinkle some flour on them, and it will look like I`ve been really busy all day, and haven`t just been sat on my arse at the PC :)
