What a waste. Take it back to where you got it and complain c

My M&S meal deal was lovely I got the roast beef and got the turkey joint as there were 6 of us and the meal is meant for 4.

Only got about 3 slices of the beef left :-)

Off to watch the last episode of The Musketeers.

You should have a quorn roast ;-)


Cynthia Report 30 Mar 2014 15:22

Oh dear Dea....what a should have raided the kitchen for more of Sylv's breakfast..... :-D

I am cream crackered! Didn't sit down until about 3.....and, to top it all, we have a blocked drain.................lovely! :-(

Just going to relax for a bit before the tribe come over later........

Just had a horrible lunch !!!!! :-(

I bought what looked like a lovely piece of pork loin and decided that rather than roast it for lunch I would divide it into 'chops'.........

I marinaded it overnight in white wine, olive oil and lemon juice with lots of herbs and pepper etc. to tenderise it - then I had a 'feel' of it this morning and it didn't seem to be very tender so I bashed it with my little hammer thing, rubbed it in some pimenton and cooked it nicely, made a gorgeous creamy sauce, left it to rest and then served.....................

It was 'as tough as old boots' !!! :-( :-( :-( :-( :-(

We ate our veg and dipped some bread in the lovely sauce and gave up :-(

I saved the day by taking the last of my lovely 'special' mince pies out of the freezer and serving them with custard................. We are now 'replete' ;-) :-D :-D
