That's why Italian men are always fumbling in their trouser pockets.

you could be right....... they certainly have enough excuses for a quick or prolonged fumble and grope.

the men here grab their balls in the same way that we would say "touch wood" and they don't cross themselves wheneveer they see a hearse drive past them - they have a good long grope instead.

Use straight out of the fridge then use machine above perfect for sandwiches or salads.
I am a bit of a supermarket stalker I'm afraid I love walking around them strange but true. Anyway the old guillotine is only about two quid but you try slicing an egg into 12. And when you get here try the Mucky Donna Boiled Eggs. To go with the eggs same venue, Bread shelf bottom there lies the best wholemeal bread ever we brought the bread maker bla bla but their brown oval sliced is the donkeys. We get our other eggs from a friend who has chickens. Anyway that's enough for now.

What is this wholemeal bread that you buy and where from? Hate the normal Spanish wholemeal as it tastes full of sugar.

Go into mercadona supermarket and you will see the normal fare long, short loaves ,And rolls but on the bottom shelf you will see the round sliced bread, Just returned from the Bread bin ...Nice Ice blue retro job from John lewis...Anyway looking at the label its called Pan Redondo Cortado then in the centre of the label is a big 5 which tells you it has 5 semillas or grains and fibre. I have scanned the packet for you it was a little damp as we took it out of the freezer earlier. Let me know how you like the taste. Fantastic with new laid boiled chuckie eggs. Lynnxa knows you know.

Silly me I should have left the bread in the packet and then get Piers the local donkey to put his full weight on my scanner in order I can produce the said ROUND scan you desire...........The pic below is Dennis the Mucky Donna baker they use his mouth as a mould for the said loaves so if you take the information from my scan and marry that to the shape of the Dennis the bakers mouth........................Bingo you have found heaven in a plastic bag.
