Because I’m worth it

Whilst wandering aimlessly around Tescos trying to decide what to have for tea I finally, after filling my basket with magazines and flour and basically everything I didn’t go into Tescos for in the first place, decided on fish pie.

Off I pop to the fish section only to be reminded of the last time I made fish pie subseuquently thinking it’s not worth all that effort and heading off towards the next aisle. The ‘ready meals’ aisle. I hate this aisle, it makes me miserable and funny enough I only ever go to it when I am miserable and  can’t be bothered cooking. Of course it jolted me into action and off I returned to the fish section.  

So ….

three saucepans

  • one colander
  • two whisks
  • one spatula
  • one bowl
  • one cheese grater
  • one knife
  • two spoons
  • one masher
  • one jug
  • one weighing scales

 and two hours later

Dinner for one
vino for one
followed by curling up on the sofa with a movie of my choice.

Because I’m worth it :o)

    Hahaha I know what you mean. The ready meal section is so depressing.

    Once I saw an old woman in Tesco and she was buying a ready meal christmas dinner for one. I nearly cried.

    Worse than that is when you see people who are buying 7 ready meals for one. And you know they live alone and are lonely. Breaks my heart everytime.

    Yes you are! Fish pie is a mammoth task for a family of four too but much nicer than ready made meals versions. I really envied you when I saw your table set for one!
