    regarding those portion pots we were given.
    my initial thought was they aint big enough but yesterday i had some rice which i had already cooked and then put it into the red pot and it was more than i usually have, and the little yellow pot for baked beans and it was more than enough to go on my slice of toast, and the blue pot of uncooked couscous was more than enough when mixed with chicken and mixed veggies i even lef some on the plate.

    i am pleasently surprised by them

    Thats lovely to hear hun, its one thing you will find doing RC, she doesn't do megre portions. I have learned over the years, that all her meals are of a hearty portion size, and I can honestly say I have never felt hungry having one of her meals. Those pots don't look much as you say, but they are a generous serving size. Well worth the money.

    I have now had 5 sets of pots (excessive I know) but I have a set at my friends, one at my mothers and now have 3 sets at home. I leave red pots in my branflakes and special K, yellow one permanently in my muesli, blue ones in my rice and porridge then i have a floating set - although i dont really use green ones much. I use them every day and they are the best tool ever.

    Its a shock when you use the blue one for uncooked rice for the first time and think 'that will never be enough' but it amazes you when you cook it and put it on your plate! :)
