    I am much more tempted to nibble now that winter is here and I find it harder to resist. I am experiencing a marked increase in appetite. Anyone else getting this?

    The thought of yet another cold salad for lunch at work is almost making me weep!

    I definitely feel more hungry when it's cold - sorry Lisa, just sitting down to a big plate of pork belly fried in lemon oil with mushrooms and mayo mmm - and likely to polish the whole lot off! :)

    That does sound lovely - what about taking some hot stock in a thermos and having that too?

    I just checked the price.

    NO WAY.

    That is just ridiculous. The soup would choke me ha ha.

    Will wait until it is way cheaper, or turns up second-hand.

    I make soup in my slow cooker, no need for a fancy gadget. I haven't seen the advert.

    I reckon we will be seeing a fair few of these machines turning up in the January sales! And even in the 'unwanted Christmas presents' section of eBay ha ha.

    There's a limit to how hungry a person can be for home made soup!

    Will just make my own, as Vicky is planning to do, and use my liquidiser. Problem solved! IF I can remember to, that is. The soup maker ad will prompt us!

    I'm eating more hot meals I must admit. I just don't fancy salads in winter.

    not more hungry, but certainly looking for a warm lunch, except at work, where it is so hot all day i am happy to have a salad, so that works out ok!
    it's the long dark evenings that are dificult, in the summer i would be out in the garden till the midgies drive me in, but its dark from about half 4 now, so spending more time sitting in front of the fire, have to be strong not to snack too much!
