    i'll buy your roses of you for €4 lol




  • I fecked up with 2 boxes of mince pies. Went out of date in the press so I was glad I had put the others in freezer.




  • The last of the actual grub is finally gone, gone, gone.

    But we were given nice bottles of gin for Christmas pressies -- the family know what we like, lol; my husband makes the BEST gin-and-tonic. And there's always tonic in the fridge and a lemon in the fruit-bowl.

    So we have one on a Sunday and the nice bottles of Christmas gin will last us quite a long time.

    The mark up on that is scandalous.

    Still. Even the packaging is cheaper on the pouches I'd wager.

    Large pouch of quality street in Dunnes for €2.50 so I agree with DvB the markup is silly.

  • got the last pouch of Roses in LIDL today €4.. not bad




  • Still eating away on ferrero rochet and celebrations that were bought for us as presents. It's never ending!




  • Had a tub of Roses last night. I messed up dinner, burgers and chips turned into just burgers so promised extra movie treats. Feel we still have enough to do that many more times.

  • Gave a box mince pies and a Christmas pud to my folks. They were going out of date in a couple of weeks and we are still trying to be healthy and didn't want them to go to waste.




  • still have 3 boxes of mince pies left, best before the week before Easter so might stretch one to Easter with a bit of custard.
    also found a box of chocolates today, will try to finish them before Wednesday, don't worry its a small box!!!

    I have 3 boxes of them myself, but mine are in the freezer. Did it last year and when defrosted during the April/May lockdown last year were a delicious treat when heated up & served with some vanilla ice cream!!

    Will be breaking open some of them around Paddys day I suspect as I'm taking a few days off & may well treat myself!

  • In a gesture of irony we defrosted a box of mince pies & had them with vanilla ice cream over the weekend for dessert after a BBQ... delish!! I still say they should be available all year round 😁

  • We gave our last box of Christmas biscuits to our neighbor for keeping an eye on the house and watering hanging baskets while we were away.

    Christmas cupboard is empty now.





  • My Mams Christmas pudding. Only finished pudding from 2019 last Christmas & usually have a piece of pudding in September and finish it off at Christmas. Always tastes better when a year old. She’ll be starting her puddings in the next couple of weeks. Love the smell in the house when she’s boiling them.





  • We're down to our last 4 mince pies now, they've all been defrosted so we'll need to eat them all in the next day or 2... 😯

    Challenge accepted!!😛

  • Two Christmas puddings still upstairs 🎅 🎅 The only problem is that the OH doesn't eat it so if I open them,

    Im going to have to finish it myself and the waist band is already stretched😂

    Trivial problem I know😀
