Magic Bag a Good Result!

As I've not been feeling up to scratch over the last couple of weeks, I've not felt up to baking or indeed cooking anything which takes a lot of standing and bending to do, so I've been looking for a Too Good To Go bag once again.  I was put off by the last one, some of which ended up on the compost heap as it was way past best eating condition.  By setting my phone alarm for 9pm I managed to snag a Morrisons bag for collection between 2pm and 4pm yesterday (Sunday)  so at 2pm I drove the short distance to the supermarket to join the short collection queue.  It turned out that the woman on the till had forgotten to cancel the orders and was being told off over her headset 😟  When it came to my turn I offered to forget it and get a refund but...no...my order was being honoured and someone was picking items for me.  We ended up chatting and laughing ..... and what a bagful I got too 😀


I got a bag of pea shoots, a brownie doughnut, 4 x cheese and onion rolls (8" long!) 4 choc chunk muffins, pack of 9 crumpets, pancakes,  small wholemeal bread, 4 x fruited teacakes and 2 x Maryland muffins.....



At full price the items would have cost £10.13.  The YS total was £5.71 and I paid just £3.09 

The healthiest thing in the bag was the pea shoots but I have frozen most of the packs of goodies so that I won't have to do any baking for quite a while.  We ate a cheese and onion roll each with oven chips and baked beans for tea yesterday and will eat the others with a big salad today.  G enjoyed the chocolate brownie doughnut, it was far too calorific for me!

All in all a good result this time.  I will definitely try Morrisons again.

Thanks so much for popping in.  Stay safe x

  2. That was a lovely big bag of goodies for you both especially when you can freeze a lot of it.

    1. The scheme has been active for some time, Elizabeth, but you need the App to use it and I resisted downloading Apps for quite a long time! ;)
