Hello Dear Reader,
I do like to get home to bargains on the doorstep. There are many items that I buy through Approved Food that there is no way on earth that I would pay full price for. I just wouldn’t buy marinade, portioned and herby cous cous, nor would I buy cream, or sauces. I do like the option of having something different, spicy or tasty once in a while. I buy products from Approved Food about three times a year and fill the cupboards in one or two hits. What did I buy and what will I do with it?
Cous cous was ten packs for £1 – so I bought 30 packs! We have it with salad, with fish, with casseroles, with stews and sometimes just in a tub for lunch with a few tomatoes. The UHT soya cream gets eaten with puddings, pies, stewed fruit, over tinned fruit and in coffee. I would never go to the expense of cream!
Tinned ham will go in the back of the cupboard for very wet and rainy days and will be chopped and will go in paella, in sandwiches, in an omelette, in quiche. The marinade will go over chicken legs, or chicken thighs, loin chops or pork chops. They will be then grilled, put in the oven or on the barbeque. I paid £1 for two tins of ham. The suet mix will be made into dumplings, roly poly, suet pastry, will line a steak and kidney pudding dish or even steamed syrup pudding which we would eat with custard. The suet mix was £1. 3 bottles of French’s mustard was £1.
The marinade were 10 for £1, the bottles of posh marinades were 2 for £1. The tortilla corn wraps were three packs for £1.They will keep for ages and will be used for lunches. The small plastic pots were 5 for £1…..you can also buy these in Poundland and we use them for chopped fruit for lunch, for saving small amounts of food, such as spare gravy, I also keep pins, safety pins and sewing machine needles in them.
Have you tried Approved Food yet? It’s worth giving it a try and stocking up the store cupboard, sometimes with goods that you might never normally be able to afford.
Added for visitors who’ve never heard of Approved Food. Some food come with a best before date, you can eat it months, if not years after that date as they are preserved goods. Ketchup, sauces, jam, dried goods all keep a very very long time. Sell by dates are similar, you can ignore them if you choose. Some people will not buy these goods and shops, who are over stocked sell these goods in huge auctions, as in tonnes and tonnes in one go, to companies like Approved Foods, who then sell them on for a fraction of the original price.
