It's National Chip Week!
Today is the start of National Chip Week! Now to me, chips should be chunky with crispy bits on the outside but soft fluffy middles, not these salty sticks called French Fries :)
In celebration of chip week Morrisons is selling their 12.5kg bags of unwashed potatoes at half price once again. They were £4 now reduced to £2 which, to me, is an excellent buy as bags of frozen chips cost so much more.
The variety is Innovator which is a kind of Russet with rough, tan coloured skin, creamy texture and pale yellow flesh. They are recommended for brilliant roasties and jackets as well as chips. Yummy!
I often buy these big bags of bargainacious spuds (regular readers will already know that) as I find that if I store the bag in the shed where it's cool they will last for weeks. I just collect enough on a Sunday to last the week then fold the bag back down. They work out at just 16p per kilo which is brilliant value. What can beat a lovely jacket potato with crispy skin and a fluffy inside :))
Who else loves potatoes? I think I developed my love of them when we were young and money was very tight. Mum used to fill the oven with big potatoes and we could smell them baking from the street where we were playing! Then later on our own son would eat mounds of mash with his meal. He was so skinny but very hard to fill up!
Thanks for popping in once again x
