    I hope i made it on time.  Had a lot of difficulty uploading my video.  In fact there is a sign to say I have broken links but in fact I don't understand why.
    I had written my hub and was working on my video, then i went to upload it but couldn't because it was already on hub Pages video...so I had to start another Hub and transfer the words and pics to the video.
    Hoping it will sort itself out.
    Anyway, here is my frugal living recipe.
    Hope you enjoy it
    (If there is something I can do to put things right with that broken link sign I'd appreciate it).
