Yesterday was a very bad day as my trusty computer of 5 years suddenly died! Now you will know that I was aware it was suffering but ironically I had made the decision to transfer all my date to my new computer next weekend! The reason being that last weekend we were moving daughter no.4 to her new room at Uni. So I am now very bereft! All my work emails were stored on outlook which is now inaccessible. I did back up all the other data a few weeks ago so have transferred that to my new computer late last night. I have someone coming round later today to see if we can access and retrieve all that is lost - I sure do hope so.

Add steaming hot bowls of homemade leek and potato soup
Add homemade three seed bread
And homemade Cheddar Cornmeal muffins
Follow this with Apple and cinnamon crisp with apples from the garden and you have the perfect Autumn supper! A real favourite in our household.

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 heaping tsp baking powder
1/2 tspn salt
pinch cayenne pepper
1 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter or margerine
11/2 cup grated cheddar
Stir together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and cayenne.
Beat egg, with milk and butter and add to dry ingredients, stirring to moisten.
Stir in 1 cup of grated cheese and spoon into greased muffin cups. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 375 degrees or equivalent for 15 - 20 mins.
(taken from the book Muffin Mania, my favourite muffin book of all time!)
These muffins are great toasted the next day too - if there are any left of course!!!
