They look as if they've been fried. You should have asked if they had courgettes instead.

My order included three jars of the curry powder. They are enormous.
'in store' special, for our son I bought three jars of Sharwoods Madras Indian curry paste 255ml jar for $1.99 each

For the local small discount deli two packs Schneiders 'chicken gill'ems' Buffalo sausage 300g (4 sausage to a pack) 2 for $1 ($0.50 each pack)

Do you have courgettes in NB? It always seems daft to me that a French speaking country calls courgettes zucchini. Damn American influence again.

I'm not sure I've ever seen them labelled as courgettes here. It's just a lifetime of calling them that isn't easy to change.

Even my Quebeccer family says Zucchini.

At $1.77/lb this will make 3 very affordable pork roasts.
Re-organising the freezing compartment revealed a bunch of little tubs of chicken wing tips, so it's time to make stock; some sea salt, peppercorns, bay leaf, garlic, rosemary, butter..... it smells really good in here. I'm tempted to build a stew with the other piece of my breakfast steak instead of using the bbq. If I got a bell pepper on the way home from the club and the beer and liquor store I could cube and marinate that steak and make kebabs on the bbq. I should always have such choices!

Some great deals at Superstore.

When Pepsi is 99c a 2l bottle, the saving on that alone pays for the taxi back.

20 cooked wings for $10. 10 minutes in the oven and they're great.

Countless (different brand) packs of coffee pods including the wonderful 12 pack PC Sumatra @ $5.99.

Plumcots - a tad costly @ $3.99 lb but amazingly juicy and tasty. Really messy to eat.

I picked a good day for half price skinless, boneless chicken breasts too.

And something new 'from our chefs' Mexican style pork loin centre cut chops. Packs of two for $6 but half price with tomorrow's date.

We ate them for supper and I'd happily pay the full $6, they were that good.

You're most welcome! You may find you have to order them from their online store as not all branches carry them.

Pickled Eggs...

Walkers - but also try local "Brit" shops

I make far better pickled eggs than you can buy, I have Joyce's original pickled egg recipe from the Craven Motor Inn from the 70's. Store bought ones lack character, and onions, and peppers.

No, why? In the grand scheme of things why? It's not as if we need to preserve eggs for food so just why?

As you can tell the only food I like pickled is beetroot. The rest is an abomination.
