"Oh dear" If you say good morning on some threads it will upset somebody and then others will say what was the point of being so brief "good morning how are things the weather is not up to much is it" and on.
If we say briefly Cottage pie, or Chops, or even cheese and tomato sandwich finish we will soon come to the end of interest and another thread closes.
Some of the interest is how we cook what we eat and this is often different region to region, north and south.
A lot of us saw our mothers produce good nutritious meals On little money from what modern cooks would throw away hence the "offal" chat, good food easily cooked but thrown away or sneaked into some of those cheap pies sold by "err" Tospots and others. They took advantage of things available and yes I do use frozen food as a back up but add taste to it as i go. Ready meals? read the label, it may be quick and easy but my grand kids would not get them from me.
If you can afford proper butchers bakers greengrocer food shops fair enough use them and I find everything I buy gets eaten not so when I do one weekly shop at Tesco where all the girls know me and we have a good laugh, "Hello, it is nice to see a smile there have been some right grumps through here this morning" and there are lots of things I get there impossible to get elsewhere.
Cheap? I would compare my shop around bill with a one stop shopper if they wished so would question that.
Tonight, Braising steak which will cook slowly for two hours then the veg put in the pot and another hour, or is that too much information.
