    Can you remember how many days yours were stuck in Peterborough? and that's the worry I have as well - I don't think dgf will replace the order as it was over £35 - what was the value of your order?

    Do they do next day delivery? and do you need to be home to take the delivery? - it's just I am working and not always home

    @Annb and @maglil55 I think they’ve made a pretty good job of the pastry, although it’s not as hard and crisp as a regular one. It’s only a small pie - a little bigger than one of those mini Melton Mowbray ones but it tasted just like a proper one so it’ll be great to have a couple of these for Christmas.
    I also bought piccalilli from Keto fitness club which had a good flavour but was a bit runny. I used to make a big vat every year but haven’t bothered to try and ‘ low carb it’ yet.

    Good luck for the blood tests.
    I’ve emailed the pie company to check if the pies are freezable - I’m assuming so but can’t see it on the website. It’s good to know the bread is nice too.

    Breakfast: bubble and squeak with squash instead of potato and fried in butter plus 2 fried eggs. Currently have heartburn - shouldn't have caused that, but who knows if it would have happened anyway.

    Later will be one of the fish pie bases out of the freezer and topped with some more of the roasted butternut squash instead of mashed potato. With peas.

    Wondering what to have for Christmas dinner - or even whether to bother, it is just me after all. Really fancy the idea of something fishy rather than meaty but to get a decent piece of fish might be a problem. I'd like something like halibut if I can get it but skate would do and would be much cheaper. What I'd really like is dogfish (what used to be called rock salmon). Now that's a fish worth having. But I heard it was on the endangered list, so won't be available. Monkfish can't hold a candle, even though it looks similar. Also, there's a bell ringing in my head about skate also being endangered, so maybe it will have to be halibut - that is often farmed these days.

    The delivery time is 5 - 7 days usually, and do you know I’ve never been in for deliveries from them, hubby took them in!

    Talk to them directly about the issue I’m sure despite size of order they will replace and claim from POst office on their Facebook page someone had a damaged Christmas hamper which was more than 35 and arrived in Scotland wet and damaged and Dan,once made aware, got a replacement sent out. Do get in touch they like to put things right.
    Best email re orders is hello@deliciouslyguiltfree.com

    So sorry to hear that @Antje77. It is a really hard thing to do, best for the animal but really horrible for you.

    Just had an email to say my order place last Thursday is running late and apologising for the delay, Christmas orders, supplies shortages, understaffing etc.. but all stock should be in early next week. They are throwing in a rosemary and sea salt focaccia as a gesture of good will :)
