Approved Foods Order.....

Well .... the Approved Foods order arrived in no time at all...and apart from my Sister (who's home it had been sent to) having a bit of a panic at just HOW MUCH food there was...and just what was on who's list ...the ordering process was a great success.

Hubby P picked up 'our box full' from my sisters house (just up the road)....and we got stuck in.....just to see what we had got for our £21.

Lots of goodies .... I had ordered things that perhaps I wouldn't have bought from the supermarket because they are too expensive.... would make the meal too expensive for everyday.
Things like nice sauces and fancy nann breads, ready made poppadoms (so yummy with that chopped up salad and a bit of chutney).
I popped the nann breads in the freezer...ideal for livening up our dinners, and the rest stacked nicely in the cupboards.
 Hubby P is looking forward to the Bacon Grill .....I tell you we lead such an exciting life! 
I haven't been buying his favourite Bacon Grill...its just been too expensive from Tesco ...but at A Foods it was just 78p....I will pay that....I think 'He's worth it'

Has anyone had the baking mixes do you find them? and do you find you use them up, being in such large quantities?

I got a large bag of the scone said Savoury Scone Mix so I made a round of cheese scones (well.... I say made ...just added water shaped and threw in the oven!)
The next mix I added a bit of sugar and a few sultanas, mixed with milk and cut into rounds with the nearest drinking glass (so lazy...couldn't be bothered to find the proper cutters).

....They look just fine...if a bit rough and ready.
 So.... the interests of research.....purely to give you feedback on A Foods you understand....I'm sat munching on the sultana scones ...they go very well with mugs of Earl Grey tea ....Hubby P does brew a very fine tea!
Bye for now xx
