now, I have been a BIG fan of Ryvita for years, in fact, my mum was thought to be VERY Avante Garde when I was little, as she sent me to school with Ryvita and cream cheese for my packed lunch, in the days when two slices of brown bread with a bit of ham and mustard was considered risqué, andthe norm was fish paste
The time between Christmas and New Year is a strange one on the culinary front – there is a plethora of sweets, cakes, pies, biscuits andother rich pickings from the savoury buffet table, as well as piles of turkey no doubt andof course the Christmas cake and pudding that usually last well into Spring

I really couldn’t tell that I’d used sweetener instead of sugar – I’ve cooked with sweeteners before when I was looking after mymother who was diabetic and while I am still in two minds about the potential pitfalls, I don’t think it hurts to do so occassionally
I always makes a batch of this up along with my soup recipe in readiness for my two low-calorie fast days, as it’s all prepared and ready to snack on, as well as making a GREAT fruity kick-start breakfast for the start ofthe day

There is a lot to be said for a nation where even the supermarkets shut for lunch, it has my fullest seal of approval, although I was astounded to be turned away from Poitiers airport once, as it was closed for lunch – I was advised to enjoy a plat du jour myself at the café, until it opened for check-in
