Iceland used to do 15 eggs for £1.
 Maybe they have now been ,"Jersified".
How long before they up the rest of their prices?

For £1.50 for 15 eggs I truly don't care how the eggs are made. Same as for bangers (yum yum!) for £1.

My secret vice are homemade Doner Kebabs - including meat (??!) straight from the Iceland Freezer......don't tell anyone  ;D

Iceland's frozen fish is good, £5 for 7 pieces of atlantic cod, prawns £3, makes a good fish pie.   ;)

Whilst we are talking about cost cutting and slightly off thread!  You should really consider cooking with a Halogen oven if you don't already.  It is ideal for a couple and I am told it is cheaper to cook with than a conventional oven.  Not sure how much an hour!

Large whole baked spuds cooked for an hour 175o to perfection.

Chips (sliced and placed in a bowl with a tablespoon of olive oil, pinch of salt and pepper) paddle them around in the bowl to ensure they have an oily covering and put in the base of the Halogen for approx 1/2 an hour @ 175o.

Conger steaks approx 1" to 1 1/2" thick about 1 1/2hr on 175o

A concoction of bite sized pieces of potatoe (sweet if you like), butternut squash, carrot, parsnip, any root veg you can think of, then paddle about to cover in olive oil with a pinch of salt and pepper.  Add a pinch of cayenne to give it oomph!  Then you can either liquidise, add stock to make a soup or you can just have the veg accompanied with a curry sauce or whatever sauce you like.

Request to Owner of PJ can we have a cookery section please for when the political conversations fade off a bit?
