Re: Handmade Cards

I am surprised that no one has suggested selling your cards online, as well. A friend here in Granada sells her cards and crafts via the local markets, but also via Ebay and her online shop. She prints the web site address on the back of the card so when someone buys a card, they do have the choice ...

Re: Energy saving tip.

Pressure cookers are brilliant have had one or two for the last 30 odd years and would not be without one. They do far much more than stews and soups and if anyone wants any recipes for them I have a shed load. I also have a slow cooker which is brilliant when I am working as I can prepare the meal ...

Re: what do you do here

I would kill for some spare time with which I could do nothing. This spare time thing eludes me to be fair, I spend most of my waking hours running around like a headless chicken trying to make sure everything is done and dusted. I really am not being factious, I truly do not have a spare waking min...

Re: What part of Andalucia do YOU live in?

Same as V Dubber but I actually live "Underground" full time. My location is certainly campo although 5 min drive to the town. I have also moved about a bit whilst I have been in Spain, and whilst I love it here I am not sure this is where I am going to remain. I am just not sure where I want to liv...

Re: Chinese Products

Sid that was seriously not a criticism, I know where you are coming from. Identifying the source of an allergic reaction is a nightmare. I tend to trust the reaction and then look for the cause. E621 is a nightmare for me, and often I have not realised until I get the reaction and then look at the l...

Re: Chinese Products

I have found that MSG is also labelled as E621. I might be the exception to El Cid's findings but I most certainly do have a very bad reaction to MSG. Further to the main topic on this thread. Seems that Chinese sweets might be contaminated and on sale here in Spain. http://www.typicallyspanish.com/...

Re: Where do you...

I guess I do my bulk shop in Lidl every two weeks, I also get my meat there as it is a franchise and the butcher is local and is very cheap but has marvellous meat. I sometimes go to Mercadona depends what I need, other than that local supermarkets Upper and Coviran and local fish shop and veg shop.

I have to confess that I have been avoiding Chinese food since coming to Spain due to the high levels of MSG. This latest bit of news further strengthens my resolve.

Mind you having said that even Bisto Gravy granules has MSG now :shock: What is the world coming to? Thank God I do not use them

I am not usually suspicious of these type of questions, however if I ever ask them I use the policy 'I'll show you mine if you will show me yours', and I also found the lack of response a little bit of a niggle. So Starlet why are you asking and how long have you been here and would you ever return?...
