Do you use instant mashed potato?
I really rate this product for when you want to prepare a meal in a hurry. Microwaveable mashed potato tastes almost as good as the mash you make yourself and it can be a whole lot quicker to prepare.
The Aunt Bessies web site describes the product:
"Ive selected only the simplest and finest ingredients to create my delicious homestyle mash and now its over to you! Microwave in just 3 1/2 minutes for a perfect rich and creamy texture without the mess. Irresistible!"
When you open the bag you will find large tablets of potatoes - 5 are suggested per portion but I have found 7 gives a more generous serving. But don't be misled by the microwave times. A single portion can be done quickly but if you are doing 2 portions (14 tablets) it takes approximately 8 minutes in the microwave . . . and 4 portions takes longer. However it is still quicker and less mess than making you own when you need a meal in a hurry. Makes great sausage & mash with onion gravy!
A touch of Sea Salt
I gave into my addiction to chocolate during all that bad weather last winter - one way to get rid of the winter blues! Ever since I have enjoyed sampling the different chocolates on offer or being promoted in the supermarket.
Three weeks ago Morrison's were promoting Lindt's Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt. My initial reaction was that it might be a bit "Yuk" but always ready to give something a go I popped half a square in my mouth. A true revelation! If you like chocolate you just have to try this one.
In typical Morrison's style there was none in stock to buy.
I had to wait a further week to buy a bar. Mind you I haven't looked back since, buying two or three bars a week.

There is always something happening in supermarkets - new products, product demonstrations, shelves reorganised so you can't find anything. Not always interesting, quite often boring and sometimes a chore but just occasionally something catches your eye, something is interesting . . .
