I think that title might put me in the running for the ‘dullest blog post title ever’ award – and if there is not an award for that, then there should be!
I have often seen various blogs extolling the virtues of the tinned potato. My OH confessed to loving them – saying that when he was a student he often used to eat them straight out of the tin – yes, I have had to work very hard to civilise him. He is now fully house-trained and has good table manners!
I decided we should try some – though they would not be eaten straight out of the tin!
This tin of potatoes 15p from Lidl – how is it possible to grow, peel, cook and can potatoes for 15p?
Well as the menu plan for the week had already gone out of the window (I didn’t do more shopping to get extra food, I just made different food with what we had) I decided to take two of these tins, a pack of chipolata sausages and roast them all in a tray in the oven. I put a bit of oil on the potatoes and then the sausages on top and left it all cooking away for 45 minutes. OH and Flo had beans with theirs I had salad.
How good were these little potatoes cooked off in the oven with oil – very, to my great surprise. OH and Flo have asked can we have them cooked like that once a week – not sure I want to commit to that! But they were tasty – but I am still baffled by their price.
It has been a week of marking and three bits of bad news in one week. But as things supposedly come in threes, hopefully next week will be better.
