We then took a trip into Bournemouth or rather Castle Point and hit Asda, and did a massive shop. We always try and guess how much we have spent when we get to the check out, but today we were just so wrong! "M" guessed £60 and I went higher at just £65. The bill was £99.79 !!!!!!
The most expensive thing we bought was an £8.00 large bag of bakers food for China Dog!
The cost of living certainly does seem to be escalating at an alarming rate. I wonder when the first food riot will be in this country!? Within the next 12 months I suspect!
The best buy was smoked cod at £2.60 and that was 2 large pieces as seen below! I cooked it on the cadac with some fresh prawns, some mixed veg consisting of courgette, leek, carrot, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, baby sweetcorn, and onions. It was fantastic.
|Smoked cod, both pieces for £2.60 - Bargain!|
The cadac certainly is getting some use, and its amazing what you can cook on it, if you have one then I'm sure you use it loads, if not why not? And for those of you who havent got one, go buy one, they are brilliant!
Tomorrow, we have nothing planned, I've got to get some items ready for shipping, but thats all. So we will wait and see what the weather is like, then decide. It may just be a lazy day around here. That would suit me just fine!
Off to watch a DVD and settle down for the evening.
