Are you sick to the back teeth of hearing / reading about eggcellent value, bargain eggstravaganzas and eggsquisite deals?
Yup, me too, so to cut the BS, see below for a rapid-fire overview of the shopping deals in stores this weekend.
- Irish Lamb Leg - €7.99 per kilo
- Roasting Potatoes...
This Rogan Josh recipe is adapted from a great recipe book, 'Indian - a collection of over 100 essential recipes' by Parragon, which leapt off the shelf and into my basket during one mammoth trek through TK Maxx’s heaving aisles. Yes, I know I need another recipe book like...Read More
Sometimes, just sometimes, you can get very lucky indeed in the half-price section. But you have to be careful. Don’t get fooled by the shiny red or yellow stickers proclaiming their products’ bargain status. ‘Slashed’ from €2.59 to €2.39 is not a bargain, especially as it’s going out of date...Read More

This is another one from that great Indian recipe book I picked up in Tk Maxx for a few bob, ‘Indian – a collection of over 100 essential recipes’ by Parragon. I really must get around to writing a review about it, as it’s been an excellent go-to book...Read More

The weekly shop this week is actually fairly reasonable, due in no small part to the fact that as I slaved at the stove for hours on Monday, we’re having galettes
for lunch all bloody week. The Sunday roast (becoming quite a habit now!) was an absolutely...Read More
Tesco special offers are out today. And it's meat week. Well no, not officially, but they’ve got some decent offers on all things meaty, fishy and er, chicken-y.
Starting with their half price dinner, which is just half price spuds, wine and a roasting meat. Except this week it’s not...Read More
