OK lets get it out there . I really have got to the level of loathing xmas , people cant afford to live from day to day let alone have the happy commercialised xmas advertised every other minute .
Its unusual for me to be fed up with it this early in the season , but its the grocery shopping aspect of it . Have you noticed theyve started hiding all the real food and replacing it with seasonal goods . I was stalking the yellow labels in Tesco the other day , only to find the chiller was full of yellow labelled Gyoza , Souflettes and Coconut Prawns with mango Salsa ...really ? Even at yellow sticker prices these were all around the £2 and more mark for 8 or 9 miniscule nibbles . I bet whatever charity gets there food at the end of the day will be so grateful . Cant you just see the poor bloke in his sleeping bag with his dog on a string rushing forward for those ?
WHY are they selling this stuff in bleedin November ? I know it can be frozen and used later but the mountains in the cheap bin show that nobody is buying it . Lets face it when it comes to a buffet if you put this stuff out on you lets impress everyone buffet over xmas its going to be the tray of manky frozen sausage rolls and the cheese on sticks that gets eaten first . Cheap manky frozen sausage rolls can always be enlivened with a good sprinkling of parmesan or glazing with a bit of chutney , thats as far as my buffet catering exotica goes..lol
So heres your challenge for this week .....
No1 whats your cheapy buffet cheat that actually gets eaten?
