    Whoopsies today -from a plus a couple from the coop.
    [/IMG]

    Hope I've done the picture thing correctly!!
    They seem to keep changing the times at my A, probably to keep us on our toes!
    There were some very worrying people at the veg section, but I snuck in a couple of times!
    Also remembered to separate my whoopsies from my other shop!

    Obviously didn't manage the picture!![IMG][/IMG]
    Trying again! bit blurry, but you get the gist!

    Sorry TM, have put the stuff away and didn't take a picture but was in a when she was doing reductions (5 minutes before they closed) and there wasn't a lot of people there. I had only gone for coffee and anti smoking losenges for my DS!

    Apart from the cucumbers which were 5p each, all the rest were 10p each.
    3 x cucumbers
    3 x bunches of asparagus
    2 x packs of kiwis
    1 x pomegranite seeds
    2 x packs of grapes
    1 x pack of apricots
    1 x whole peeled pineapple
    1 x pack of hot chillies
    1 x pack of strawberries with a chocolate dip (won't eat the dip, bubbs)
    1 x pack of cauliflower and broccoli

    Pack of 3 steaks 1.50

    Well pleased.

    Let's hope its not cancelled this time xxx


    5% pork mince i whizzed it so it was smoother then just rolled lightly in instant mash (some people say should syn it is a tweak , but i never do) then sprayed with frylight and put in the oven.
    I have actually just had one as couldn't resist the coating really needs some seasoning but they will do this time

    Now nobody shout at me please, but I expect you all know this
    if you type the product number from your Sada receipt into sada.com you can get details of the product purchased. Very handy for those short receipts that the wizards can't compare
    for some reason alcohol always begins with 00, these numbers do not need to be typed in, just the rest of the long number. eg 8500002216 is vodka.
    Hope this helps somebody. x

    Looks like Bella Italia are giving away free pancakes on Tuesday. Think they did this last year too. May need a code or similar, worth looking into for those with kids etc AND using Droid 20 meal if needed
