Er, I'm back, that didn't go as I expected, very strange texture and taste.
Ah, I see. It's OK, I am getting so much calmer as I get older...The problem with embracing thrift is that they make the value range packaging too similar for blind old bats like me who always have their glasses perched on the top of their head where they don't work so well, for God's sakes what is that red stuff on the rice pudding label, if that is not tomato sauce what on earth is it? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!
Feel a bit calmer now. We'll have these, only 10p per packet and really quite tasty. And there is always a silver lining: if I feed Boy 1 and 2 on these every meal for the next 10 years I will have saved enough money to buy me a Rolex. Ha! That's my idea of thrifty cooking!
Note to Social Services and all those concerned people out there: I would never for a moment entertain the idea of scrimping on my children's food to buy a Rolex Lady Datejust, 26mm, steel and Everose gold, it would never so much as cross my mind, waterproof to 100m, model no 179171, I don't even really know much about Rolexes, I am not really a material person.....
