The perils of buying junk food, this never happens when we buy our usual cook from scratch stuff.
We went to the supermarket last night and did very well for bargains - things that were on our shopping list anyway so no waste. What did we get? 3 packs of cauldron sausages for the price of one, socked away in the freezer, we don't eat them very often but they were a total bargain and good for a not-holiday fry up, reduced salad, mushrooms, potato cakes (Dan's secret treat spread with marmite), root beer, cereal bars and some other stuff that's in the freezer so I can't remember what it is.
Anyway, Dan wanted some nut cutlets for a change/ a bit of retro joy so we picked up a pack. When we got to the checkout the assistant started a running commentary on our shopping! She looked at the almond milk as though it was an alien baby then when she scanned the nut cutlets and declared "I wouldn't fancy eating them, is it some kind of vegetarian thing?". Erm, ok, the good news is that you don't have to eat them, there is no law about it.
I didn't really know what to say so I just said "oh, they're a bit like fancy stuffing, very filling" and other bland things like that. She said "they're alright for the money aren't they though". So not only does my food look disgusting I'm also a cheapskate. Two cheeky comments for the price of one! They do look disgusting and I am a cheapskate I don't need people to point it out :-)
