We’ve had one of those weeks where we seemed to have food and so when it came to shopping time earlier in the week we really didn’t need a lot. So….. where as in our supermarket days we would have gone and purchased a lot of ‘spare’ store cupboard food we decided to just buy what we needed. Tuesday saw a quick trip to Faringdon market where we purchased…… some bananas, grapes and a cabbage.
We went out to meet a friend and visited a farm shop and deli and…… still resisted the temptation just to buy! However……. in the deli in Charlbury we may have found a luxury unnecessary item we simply couldn’t resist.
Now when Becksie was pregnant she ate a lot of Lotus Biscuits. And…. here on the shelf was a spreadable version of it! Becksie decided to treat Team Pugh (we know its not very local and is probably hugely bad for you but…… everything in moderation and all that).
Lets just say….. it is incredible! Both Ian and Becksie are in LOVE with what has been nicknamed liquid biscuit! Over the last few days we have tried it on toast, in milk, on ice cream which are all amazing but…… liquid biscuit is best eaten straight from the jar! Ironically the back of the jar tells us its available from the supermarket but….. we have a witness we got it from a little deli!
We also purchased some milk and were lucky to get another cabbage, some new potatoes and some spinach fresh from Grandad Gray’s garden so…..total shopping this week £9.14. A huge saving!
Must dash Liquid Biscuit is calling!
