I am about to turn a tray of old strawberries (18 punnets for $5) into strawberry jam. Only a few are mushy, so it is still a bargain. I've made courgette (zuccini) chutney too with "out of date" veg. I go in early on a monday morning to Harris Farm, and pick up trays of whatever is going cheap. Then I plan my meals/ preserve making around them. Have to get in before the Asians get there and buy up the whole supply for their restaurants/families. One woman last week bought 8 trays of lettuce!!

Strawberries are super cheap at the moment

I made strawberry ice cream and vanilla ice cream with strawberry swirl on the weekend. Very nice they were too

Where are all the supermarket Poms and their first world problem -proclamations on the state of the world at the fine establishments found here....wouldn't happen in the UK, eh? (Just joking).

Who notices expiry dates on things? I don't have the time. Even milk is drunk too fast in this household.

I have a ribeye steak which I gave to the dog, all because I defrost it then got too busy to cook it. Probably would have been fine..

Yikes no no no! You can imagine the spin Tracy Grimshaw would put on a story like that:
Ungrateful immigrant terrorises local supermarket in biological substance attack.

Some excellent ideas, but I think I like Cresta's and MP's best. If an old time C&W singer does the song, the yoghurt could expire on the same day the dog dies and his woman done left him, so he hops a southbound train and trundles off into the sunset, a broken man

It's a slippery slope though... first a song, then it'll be a movie!!

Once a jolly migrant
Went to the Coles-o
Wanting to buy some da-a-iry

And she sang as she walked the aisles
Of the grocery,
I'm going to have some yoghurt for tea.

I want some yoghurt, I want some yoghurt,
Greek style or fat free, just give it to me,
And she sang as she walked the aisles
Of the grocery,
I'm going to have some yoghurt for tea.


So she sat in the kitchen and looked at her yoghurt pot,
Already drooling at its sweet creamery
But the date on the pot was over a week ago -
She'll have to have something else for her tea.

Its out of da-ate, It's out of da-ate
Its gone and reached its ex-pi-ry
And you're not going to have what you want from that grocery
Although you just wanted some yoghurt for tea.

Off to the phone she dashed with her angry voice,
Phoned up the man from the Coles grocery
And she shouted and raged and gave him all that she's got
I WANTED YOGHURT FOR MY BLOODY TEA


(the things you'll do rather revise for an exam. Tomorrow)
