    Morning

    Might be old news here but Tesco now sale m&s gift cards ,Amazon and John Lewis and with an extra 75 points per £25 spend, so worth getting in preparation for Christmas also if anyone uses the zeek app they have 3% off the Tesco gift cards ( small amount to some but if you are buying anyway it's still a saving). So buy Tesco gift card to use in Tesco to buy other gift cards

    Spanish olive and potato stew from Mr TS's 50th last year.

    And a chick pea, broad bean and pumpkin tagine, made last year too.

    Topped it off with a whoopsied mini naan bread.

    We will get to the bottom of the freezer before the month is out.
