Very unusual - today some fish was on offer in Sainsbury's - on a Friday!!eeek

Bought plenty of haddock loins, now sitting in the freezer - very handy!

What a bargain Val, 

the other week I was in tesco as they were reducing all the fresh meat from the butchery counter, I got a load of steak mince at well less than half price, I stuck it in the freezer, but we've had a couple of batches and it is beautiful stuff. I'll be sad when we've used it all.

I agree, Jan - but a sense of achievement when you can get some good quality foods at reduced prices! ok

OH found beef on offer in Sainsbury's and bought a freezer-load last week - I often wonder why it is reduced and whether it will  be good enough. Well, I can vouch for the quality of this lot - the first joint I admit to cutting up and used as a braising steak - oh it was wonderful - flavour and condition of meat, superb.

Yep, another good raid on the CFC counter! ok

We went early to Morrisons instead of going this evening as planned, as husband needed to go to another couple of shops.  There weren't any good reductions on fresh stuff, other than a couple of free range chicken legs with a third off.  However, in the dry goods CFC section, they had cartons of long life Lactofree milk (the milk I have) at 59p, reduced from £1.29 - I bought 6, all they had.  There were also 4 cartons of long life full fat milk reduced to 29p, I got those too to make rice puddings for husband.  Plus 2 large drums of onion flavour gravy granules, the brand we like, reduced to half price.  Will keep us going for a while ok
