Not a bad bargain

Quite pleased with this for £1.49; it currently has 27 flowers and 2 buds.

28 Dec, 2011

Nice! Ha ha I deliver chill in to three of the big four, I got cheap heathers and ferns from Mmmm...can't say, no free advertising ;)

28 Dec, 2011

 

pimpernel its true!! but probably only happens in the christmas rush and odd other occasions,

severnside we are not regarded as one of the big four.

28 Dec, 2011

Deffo! Very pretty :)

29 Dec, 2011

 

did well didn't i!!!

29 Dec, 2011

 

I'd have been happy with that find!

29 Dec, 2011

 

easier to find when you work there!!

29 Dec, 2011

 

Ohhhh, I see - they let you loose with the "reduction label making machine"!!!!!!

29 Dec, 2011

 

ah, well, yes sometimes although it wasnt me that did this one.

29 Dec, 2011

 

That's one of the best thing about Waitrose - when they reduce, they do it properly!

29 Dec, 2011

 

glad you approve.

29 Dec, 2011

 

How could anyone not approve of the sweet potato falafels being reduced to 19pence!

29 Dec, 2011

 

great bargain sticki, well done and beautifull to :o))

29 Dec, 2011

 

was that at the end of the day?

thanks sanbaz!

29 Dec, 2011

 

Yup!
Have you tried them?

29 Dec, 2011

 

no, i know exactly the things you mean though, someone else told me they were good.
made by delicatez?

29 Dec, 2011

 

They're the ones! Really good.........

29 Dec, 2011

 

there was one packet left this morning ~ i know cos it was my job to count some of the stock.
might see what there is tomorrow!!!

what do you eat them with?

made a different salad tonight ~ fennel, radish, cucumber, red onion and slices of orange with a seasoned dressing of red wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil, nice and crunchy.

oh and a pud of cherry compote [out of jar] topped with a layer of ratafia biscuits and then chocolate mousse ~ made by me.

29 Dec, 2011

 

Funnily enough, with salad.

I did the coconut custard the other day - don't use brown sugar as the colour was rather unappealing!!

29 Dec, 2011

 

but it tasted good??

i made parsnip soup the other day [sorry if i told you this one before] put bacon and a little bit of stilton in ~ nice!!

29 Dec, 2011

 

1 large red or white onion, thinly sliced

2 fresh green chillies, thinly sliced

1/2 green bell pepper, thinly sliced

2 tomatoes, thinly sliced

1/2 fresh mango, peeled and thinly sliced

1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander

1 tablespoon olive or sunflower oil

1 teaspoon fennel seeds

salt to taste

Method

Combine everything in a bowl, adding salt to taste. Cover and chill for up to 24 hours.

From the Curry Club..

Sorry, I butted in then...Seriously good salad

29 Dec, 2011

 

i like the idea of mango in there ~ how hot is a bell pepper?

thanks pimpernel.

i have decided how to do my recipe book challenge

problem ~ too many options/recipes/cookery books ~ cant find the recipe i want quickly.

solution ~ going to try at least one new recipe from book or magazine per day [roughly] and put a copy of this in a folder ~ with notes on how to improve etc.

29 Dec, 2011

 

all good recipes welcome pimpernel

29 Dec, 2011

 

Bell Pepper is just a green pepper.

29 Dec, 2011

 

that is not a chilli or a thai or a sweet pepper???

29 Dec, 2011

 

No..an ordinary green pepper.

29 Dec, 2011

 

ok, thanks actually that is handy cos i wanted some red and yellow peppers but at the moment to get a mixed bag you have to have green ~ now i have a use for it!!!

29 Dec, 2011

 

I would have to leave the mango out (can't stand fruits in salads, toms excepted), but I could add watercress........

29 Dec, 2011

 

I normally find Mango to perfume ish. But it works in this one.

29 Dec, 2011

 

I wouldnt like to mention the word predictable meanie but I had a sneaking suspicion you wouldn't like fruit mixed in, bit like variegated for you?! I like fruit in with meat too, pork and prunes or apricots, duck with orange, cherries or plums etc.

29 Dec, 2011

 

in one of the stores yesterday, looked at the £14 orchids & thought "no" I want a Sticki bargain !! besides, I have a cymbidium in spike at the moment ( I'll pop a photo ) that is an excellent deal btw!!

30 Dec, 2011

 

lucky me eh???

hope you find one bampy.

30 Dec, 2011

 

I was expecting to see loads of them left over from christmas...I think they must have got them in on a sale or return basis..as there are non in at all.

30 Dec, 2011

 

maybe they reduced them before christmas pimpernel, and they went in the panic buying?

30 Dec, 2011

 

What a beautiful bargain!!! Lucky you!

30 Dec, 2011

 

My mouth is wide open! I am mega jealous! That is the best bargain ever!!

7 Jan, 2012

 

yep, lucky me!!
