What a FAB idea! "Lemon in the cavity!"
I am DEFINITELY trying this next time I cook a bird. Absolutely inspired idea!

Hi Tigerfeet - have your children been officially diagnosed because if so you can now get Genius bread on prescription. My son has Coeliacs & I agree it does make things more expensive. Even though we get bread & some biscuits or pasta on prescription, I seem to have a lot of trouble getting some things & still end up buying a lot of it & it certainlu bumps the food bill up!
NSD yesterday & today may be the same although I really need bread & ketchup.

I bought it once and not happy about the quality, tbh. I now buy the 800g-1Kg (can't remember) packet from MrM that are at 3 x £10. I divide each tray into 3 small packets for freezing and use one for a meal for two. Each little packet I make has a value of £1.10, 55p per person, and I must say the mince is really good. I used to buy MrS but found that it had too much water/"whatever it is that makes it watery". It works out about 250g of mince meat each meal for two, which is really filling if you are also adding vegetables. I think it is good value for that price. You can buy other things in the 3 x £10: 4 pork chops, 4 lamb chops, 25 meatballs, one full chicken, 3 chicken breasts, etc.Unfortunatly our MrM's is out of town and not on a direct bus route to me, which is a pain. The same with MrS. We do have a small MrT in town which I sometimes shop at. I don't drive so it is shank's, bus or taxi, so I tend to do my shopping online.
I also do it often. It is really nice. The other day I just added the lemon juice from the bottle I had bought for the pancakes though :rotfl:It was really juicy and tasty. I mixed about 20ml of lemon juice with some olive oil, black pepper and salt. Then baste the chicken every 20min with this. The lemon makes the oven a bit smokey if you have it in juice instead of in pieces inside. But the result is really nice both ways. I did not have extra gravy and had instead the juices from the bottom of the pan, which were only the lemon, the spices and the juices from the chicken. Tasty tasty tasty... I am hungry now!!Glad lots of others do this It does make it very yummy and moist.
By the way, Idk who said about boiling ham at home for sandwiches, but thank you thank you thank you. I bought a pork shank for £1.7 at MrM and boiled it for about 2 or 3 h. I then took the meat out and into a tupperware. I had about 8 sandwiches full of meat, thick chunks, really tasty, with no added water, preservatives or whatever. And I also made stock with the bone and the remaining water. Amazing. I never thought of that. A packet of good ham costs at least £2, unless it is reformed with bits and pieces and added stuff. This was natural, healthy, really tasty and much cheaper!! I probably would have only had 3 sandwiches from a packet and I had over twice as much being really generous with the amount of meat we out in! Thank you!

I am reading but feeling a bit quiet recently and I have been working some long days this week. I'm really feeling for Angel at the moment too and, a little selfishly, for myself as it's my lymphs that they think there is something in

tigerfeet2006 - That's a shame about not being able to get the g/f food on prescription. I would love the recipe, if you don't mind please.

Thanks for that Quint. Think I will go and change my order to 'proper' mince.
It's a pain about the size thing, isn't it? I used to be able to do so much with 1kg but the 700g is such a nothing size.
