I’m just finishing a Costa mocha with a toasted ham and cheese sandwich. Yum!
Sounds lovely! I once bought up all the knocked-down Tesco large brie wheels at 50p a shot. Every bit was eaten.I have just gorged myself on baked Brie with onion rings and taragon. There is plenty of cheese in the fridge at this time of year - a shame not to take advantage, when they nearly give it away. Fittingly, perhaps, the wine is a Tarragona, frequently available at rock-bottom prices in Lidl. It has had six and a half years bottle-age but is nicely fruity. Later there will be salmon, likewise bought in the post-Christmas glut.
The shops have all switched their focus, predictably, to healthy-eating and exercise accessories. There is a lot to be said for being out-of-synch. with the consumer seasons!
Wilkins are doing some fine stuff these days. They have a range of fruit-flavoured gin which is gorgeous.You can tell it's just after Christmas as I'm sipping this--a gift.

Surprisingly good is the conclusion: vanilla and ginger layered over the hard-sweet stuff.
Edit: just clocked the ingredients--that colour and slight viscosity comes from the fact that it also contains honey.

I am well impressed with somethings you can get from there that are quite delicious an cheap
Ah, our rubbish Tesco doesn't even have a dedicated American section so that probably explains it. We'll have to see if there's a bigger Tesco anywhere near us.It is usually where all the American stuff is, they have a shelf specially for it, and as far as i know it is in the big supermarket it is by Virgils, maybe they will recognise it, if you get it i hope you love it, you can buy a bottle, no need to get all four in the box, just take one out, i greedy, i buy sometimes 6 bottles. I cant remember, are you veggies as well?
