lol pork trotter. How appropriate
Especially given that the original General Model was known as "the frontline pig", or so wikipedia informs me.
whereas you're the parlour porker
don't like to think what she's doing with her trotters
Waitrose have replaced their red and white reduced price stickers with yellow reduced price stickers, thus aligning them with many other supermarkets.

Sainsburys at Bank were giving away the excess pumpkins this morning, I nabbed one and I'm tempted to grab another later
Gonna need a bigger bag...
Tramp's Buffet grail tonight y'all: a fillet steak.
Highlight of a very successful trawl around Croydon stores = (2) Sains smoked Haddock chowders (in those little terracota pots that are good for peanuts etc.) for 39p!
Also a 3 item M&S shop that totalled 45p!
A good day.
Entire box of Satsumas for 30p, 2 packs of fresh mango fingers for a quid.
I'd have got the 2 boxes of cakes for under a quid but I was well behaved.
Hoorah for bank holidays
Croydon M&S was 'awash' with big tubs of something called "Christmas custard" at 20p a throw!
Just after we got some Mrs B picked up some heavily discounted fine stem, pink rhubarb. Yummy seconds tonight.
Newsagents near my work had spaghetti with a sell by date of end of this month at 20p a pop. Bought all of it for two quid.
Spaghetti has a sell by date?
These did, yeah. Not entirely sure why either as it keeps for years (I think ) so I had the lot.
It's dried. Pretty sure I've got some in the cupboard that's a couple of years old that I wouldn't think twice about using.
All pasta has dates printed on the packet
Yep, same here. Reckon my two quids worth should last till the summer.
Anyone had any post Xmas mice pie bargains?
Doesn't all food have dates on the package?
I'm certain that it's an example of Barmy Belgian Bureaucrats Banning our British Bolognese btw. Thank God Brexit will mean an end to this madness.
Yes I think so
This afternoon I got around 50 quids worth of fish at Morrisons for less than a fiver. All good stuff too. Sea bass, smoked haddock, trout and cod.
Just recently (last couple of months) I've started to take notice of the fresh flowers at Morrisons. I've never been a buyer of flowers, but at 10p for a bunch that was a fiver, or 50p for a bunch that was £20, I've filled both my mothers and my girlfriends houses with them.
Fish/shellfish at Sains on the Purley way...an absolute steal!
The trick with fish is either eat it when you get home or put it straight in the freezer. Forget about putting it in the fridge for tomorrow.
Yep, we've been fish feasting here at Brogdale acres!
The co-op cooked gammon in honey was
£6.99 reduced to 85 p but would not sell as it was one day over sell buy date
I'm hoping m&s are going to discount their turkeys... All dated tomorrow...waiting, waiting. They probably won't the gits
You'd have to be very lucky to have your eye on tomorrows goodies and to just hit the shop at the perfect time. Half an hour too early and they're 10% off. Half an hour later they're 80% off and gone as soon as the sticker gets put on.
