    I bought 11 strawberry and 1 chocolate ball corner for 3 as little choice in my store. You get over 2 back depending on fillers v S.

    The biscuits are picking up the sale price in W but predicted to end soon.

    Morning peeps.

    The tree is fine and DH is really upset over what he has done. Off to garage this morning to see what they say - main concern at the moment is if the car is OK to drive. We are flying from Heathrow in a couple of weeks and if the car is off the road we are completely stuffed. This is not a good start to 2018.

    Evening peeps.

    I bought one of the serrano hams tonight at A's that were reduced to 10. God knows why!! I don't even know what to do with it!!!

    Any suggestions, apart from wrapping chicken breasts?

    There are hundreds of recipes with serrano ham, it is very versatile

    served cold as a snack/tapas
    Wrap round breadsticks and dip in your favourite dips
    wrap round any fruit or cheese in bite size pieces, goes well with figs, melon, grapes, pears, mozzarella, cheddar, brie

    Put in any salad you want hot or cold

    served hot
    Ham and poached egg on toast
    Make a toastie with ham and tomato or cheese
    Put in any stews and casseroles
    Goes well with any white fish, scallops, beef and chicken/turkey

    Dry fry and crumble up and sprinkle it over pasta or mash potatoes or salad

    One of my favourites is wrapping a banana, dry fry and then drizzle with a bit of honey/maple syrup nom nom

    For a cheap and easy, one pot meal
    A play on Egg Flamenco
    A tin of tomatoes, chopped up serrano ham, an onion and garlic if you want and what ever herbs you normally use mix all together
    put in an oven proof dish, put in oven and heat for 15 min at 200
    take out oven make two holes in the mixture and crack an egg into each hole put back in oven and cook until the eggs are just set , dig in with what ever bread you have
    If you want to bulk it out add a tin beans and sausage or tin lentils or tin chick peas or tin kidney beans or any left over meats

    If your in a rush you can do this in the microwave, just remember to break the membrane on the egg yoke so that it does not blow up and make a mess in your microwave

    Good morning all!
    Does anyone actually like that Serano ham?
    I really liked the look of it, so was delighted when they had tasters on offer last year, I was so disappointed, it tasted like salt, and had the texture of old boots!
    My unsophisticated pallete maybe, but just thought i would share. x

    It can be a bit salty, it depends on who makes it, if I get one that is salty I use it in cooking to season
    The air reacts with the meat so if left out uncovered then it does go a little leather like , if it goes like this just dry fry and crumble it up and sprinkle over different foods

    Morning luvlies

    Not caught up yet so may have already been posted. S have reduced their kids Xmas fancy dress costumes to 1, someone posted on fb - not shown as reduced in my store but scanned at 1. Got the babies up to age 5-6.

    Costumes to look out for are elves, angels, shepherds, wise men, sheep and cows. Originally 16 so got some lovely bargains.

    Ideal for a nursery/ play group for those who help out in one

    Try a little A, I don't think my small store have sold any, the shelf is still full at 10.
    Not something that I would use unless it's reduced to clear.

    Still in bed, grumbling tummy ache from too many nuts

    I was chatting to That Sister who has an enormous appetite now due to the steroids & has been escaping to a Ts Express for 'tuck'

    She is being picked up this afternoon to come back for weekend, another 6 RTs completed & 2 Cetuximabs

    I've used a few AP vouchers for MnS with no ptoblem before, but struggled today.
    I was at an MnS i've not used them in before, on SS I did a coke first that worked fine.

    Then bought a full price salad, and a reduced curry total 5.20, typed in the code and it only took 3 off! I went back and tried it again but it said it had already been used.
    SA came over and took me to another till, she said that till was playing up so put it through manually as 'Coupon Tendered'.

    I then had some festive bog rolls in another transaction, and again she put it through manually.
    Bit off putting as I don't know if these mocs will still work.
