Apart form that issue it is all straightforward and easy

Order from the supermarket( will they accept an overseas credit card?)

Arrives to the warehouse as a delivery in our names this gets repacked into a box. As I have not done this before I suspect my box is going to go to overflow as I will be ordering from 4 outlets. After this i will get a better idea of what to order in terms of quantity. So now waiting for the insurance query to be resolved.
Any report on service etc on Pinoyboxdelivery?

I am sorry, I have yet to order anything.

Between Tescos and Waitrose here in either SM or Rustans I have got what I need. Plus I imported a bread maker and sausage maker with empanada moulds bought on OLX. The few hard to get, not able to get things I am adding to a list for some time this year. I also added to the sausage maker order, bags of herbs, such as Cumberland mix for the sausages. The Rusk is made here from ground down bread crumbs.
Sausage rolls; I get the puff pastry from South Supermarket, add to 1/2 kilo of ground pork with herbs and put through the food mixer to create sausage meet. This will make 60 mini sausage rolls. I make beef, onion and mushroom pies, chicken, ham and mushroom pies. I do not like the knorr stock cubes so have added Oxo cubes to my wish list plus bisto gravy mixers etc.

I have discovered that my bread making skills need to be enhanced as it is very much for toasting but not much else. On my wish list is the ''enhancer'' sold by tesco that gives their in store baked bread a lift so farm house style and bloomer style loaves should be possible plus some bread rolls. i may have to order the larger sized baking tins as I cannot find them here.

We are looking at refitting our kitchen this year and I am hunting down a larger sized oven, found it! and it must be fan assisted as baking without it can prove to be a challenge,

I seem to spend a lot of time making mischief in the kitchen!

Hi, I note that you have meet ups in Indang. I have been looking at property for sale in Cavite and came across 'Bria Homes' in Indang at an affordable cost (yes I know I cant buy as a foreigner, that's all sorted using my reliable mature Filipina partner of 10 years). I'm interested in what you think of the Indang area as an area to live, I have seen on Youtube many videos of the fresh water resorts etc, done a google earth/street view of the area. To my minds eye it looks quite relaxing, low density, low traffic area. Not sure of what services and immensities are available, but Tagaytay, Silang and Dasmarinas (where my partners family reside) are within reasonable reach.

Keen to here of your experiences and thoughts on the area.

Thanks

Thought I had posted this months ago, but had not.

When buying beef here in the wet markets it is normally just a few hours old and even the fillet can be tough. I keep mine in the fridge for upto 3 weeks, then trim any fat off and after frying/BBQ it is lovely and tender with a good taste.

Thanks in advanced.
Are you working in PH or retired and living with a local female? English foods will never taste quite the same just like Filipino dishes here in Uk even if cooked exactly the same and using ingredients imported from Asia.

I don't know if it's just me but I don't think I could miss Branston enough to spend nearly £6 on a jar.
