    They look damned good. Touch heavy on the jam for me but I'd definitely not turn them away

    I've gone off caffeine now, only decaf tea bags. I only drink 1 cup of coffee which has caffeine first thing in the morning. I am also experimenting with all the other tea bags now, some of the Twining ones I like are Camomile, Camomile and honey, Liquorice and Green tea. The Camomile really does soothe and calm you....gosh I'm getting posh lmao. :D:eek:

    Trying to decide what to make for tea. Maybe boiled Charlotte's and carrots well buttered and smothered with grated red Leicester. Or bacon instead of cheese, mayb even WITH cheese... Mind you will have to stand over the bacon whilst it cooks

    I am having to chuck chicken breasts out that are out of date and that's a fiver wasted. I forgot to cook them yesterday, they're probably ok but I take no chances with meat especially pork and poultry. I am going for 2 baked potatoes in the oven with bacon, ham and cheese with pickles and other stuff bunged in. :)

    If it's only a day I'd use them, they'd still be fine kept in fridge.

    I'd've used them for a day. All my meat gets well cooked, none of this "pink" nonsense....

    I've cooked Ron turkey steak and coated it in ground almonds , steamed carrots , sweet heart cabbage and sugar snap peas. Don't know why I bothered because ever since they upped his metformin he can't taste his food. meds One day he's going to find I've flushed them down the loo.:mad::oops::oops::oops:

    I think I can see where @tina_marie and @Sable_Jan are coming from, but I'm not too clear on which part of this post you were rating @eddie1968 ....!!

    .... and kills off any nasties, too, apparently. Very popular among the forces serving in India in the 1930s and 40s, according to my late father-in-law....
