    I absolutely love sausages.
    I couldn't eat a pork chop or a joint of pork but sausages and bacon are probably the main reason I couldn't be a vegetarian.

    Not knowing what posh dogs are, I’ve just googled them.

    Blimey, they’re a bit pricey aren’t they?
    I’m more than happy with my Aldi own brand Cumberland or Lincolnshire sausages at £1.69.

    A friend of mine ooohed and aaahed over some M&S sausage rolls, I personally thought them nothing special.

    I accept I’m probably in the minority, I know lots of people love M&S but I’ve never found much to be worth the extra cost.
    Perhaps I’m just a philistine.

    No you're not! They are pricy, but they are huge, and more of a Bratwurst than an everyday sausage.

    We used to (10ish years ago) think of M&S food as a treat, but it hasn't seemed to have changed for years, and it's all a bit pub-grub style. I do like the posh dogs, and chicken flatties that they do (the carer is easily bought with a macceroni cheese if I threaten vegan/vegetarian food for minime & I) , and I often fall lucky in that they are reducing food when I get there, so we get some good bargains.

    We used to shop everywhere, but I'm lazy so now most shopping comes from work, husband is an Aldi fan but I prefer Lidl on the whole.... All in all I'm too lazy to go anywhere else other than work, but I do like a trip to M&S food Hall as it gives me an extra excuse to look at clothes/shoes/bags....

    Cod, chips and curry sauce from Eccleshall chippy. Not too bad either. Almost as good as Top Shops.

    Lawrence's of Leamore thick sausages are bostin'. I get them from Stafford Meats, the ones with the 'coat of arms' looking label.

    Impossible Quiche! The basic recipe is this....

    1/3rd cup self raising flour
    1 & 1/2 cup of milk
    4 eggs.

    Then whatever filling you like, so today I lightly fried/sautéed bacon, onion, courgette & tomato (or whatever leftovers you have) ... Put the flour into a large mixing bowl, whisk in the eggs gradually so you get a smooth consistency, then wisk in the milk. Add as much grated cheese as you want (the recipe says one cup)... Then add the lightly fried/sautéed meat & veg. Pour into a large rectangular Pyrex dish (or whatever you want to cook it in), bake in the oven for 40 min at 200 degrees.

    The Real recipe is below, but as long as you stick to the flour, milk & egg ratio you can add whatever other ingredients you want.

    WARNING: When you cook this, it puffs up in height extraordinarily while in the oven. It also stays of volcanic heat for a extraordinary amount of time.

    Another favourite 'impossible' recipe is Impossible pudding....

    Didn't feel like cooking.
    Had some mushroom soup that I'd made yesterday and some cheese and biscuits.
