What does 28p buy you nowadays? Not a lot, does it. That's why I was pleased to find lots of veg available for this price when I visited Morrisons today.
A bag of onions, a bag of carrots, a head of broccoli and a swede all at 28p each. There were bags of potatoes at this price too but I didn't bother with those as I always buy mine from my local greengrocer unless I'm harvesting my own.
Another few things to note from my shopping today, melon, Magnums and cavolo nero.
The melon had been reduced from £1.08 to 35p, worth having. The magnums are a box of eight which cost £3, a box of four usually costs this price. It's not something I eat myself but I know Eleanor's boyfriend is particularly fond of them so it's handy to have some in the freezer. Cavolo nero is one of our favourite veggies, I'm very keen on dark leafy vegetables. Not all supermarkets sell it but Morrisons do so I usually pick some up when I visit. It's very easy to grow too. I thought I'd mention this as Jan over at The Low Carb Diabetic blog wrote a post about it recently in which she asks Cavolo nero have you discovered it yet? It's worth reading if you haven't already, it tells you all about this delicious vegetable.
Daniel and his girlfriend arrived home from university yesterday to spend Easter here, they're staying until Tuesday. It's wonderful spending some treasured family time together. They've popped in to Leeds to do a bit of shopping this afternoon so I thought I'd grab the chance to write this post and also to wish everyone a very happy, peaceful and fun Easter weekend, I hope you're able to spend it with your loved ones.
