Lidl freebie

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 232

I went down to Lidls on Christmas eve as I found that I did not have bread flour for the Yorkshire puddings.

Whilst I was in there the manager began to put things beyond the tills to go for free.

I got half a dozen boxes of button mushrooms and loads of bread - I don't eat it but the family do - a couple of bunches of flowers and a couple more things - it made the journey very worthwhile. I have a large freezer, so most of the bread went in there, and I have been indulging in mushrooms with every meal - I took some bread down to my daughter to go in her freezer - at least it was not all wasted.
I am pleased that I can eat the revised recipe Yorkshire puddings without spiking - the three eggs, lots of fat and the larger amount of protein in the type of flour must combine - plus I make them smaller than I used to, though they do puff up remarkably.
