Most of the shopping could have waited, maybe, until tomorrow but I was desperate for flour. I was almost totally out of plain, SR and even white and wholemeal bread flour. That would never do, would it? I'm well stocked up now.
I feel that I have spent an awful lot today but a lot of it is for Christmas including the now traditional snowman loo paper and kitchen towel. Aldi had it in and I know it flies off the shelf like there's no tomorrow so I made sure I got my lot. It may sound unfrugal but actually it is no more expensive than what I usually get, so no problem.
|This is it - quite nice for the festive season, don't you think?|
Head permitting, I'm hoping to get the pineapple chutney made today. It's a slow cooker recipe so just a case of chopping things up, bunging it all in and leaving it for a long time. I can live with that. I'm hoping for a few presents out of the results so it will be worth the effort.
Morrisons had King Edwards in and I think they are the very nicest for roasties so I bought two bags and will prepare and freeze most of them, again for Christmas. I'm feeding ten this year so organisation is key if I am to see much of my guests. Probably not today though, more likely tomorrow. Then I want to have a go at roasting some of the peelings (which are very clean) because that's supposed to make scrummy nibbles! Like these . . .
Well, I'd better stop rambling and get on with the necessary - but not until I've had a rest and a cuppa coffee. Have a great day and wrap up warm if you need to go out.
