Tuesday night is Tesco delivery night ……. our weekly dose of excitement and tangible and palpable anticipation chez Castle Greysquirrel!
…… and to heighten the aforementioned tangible and palpable anticipation I very much look forward to the occasional and unexpected substitution, it doesn’t occur every single week, (and perhaps if it did, it would get boring), sometimes the substitutions are a little disappointing, but chez Castle Greysquirrel it would be considered most rude to send them back ……
This week our personal shopper was not able to supply us with the lamb steaks I had spent quite a bit of time drooling over, usually they are far too expensive for our means, but this week they were down to half price, which is why I had decided to make such a considered purchase …….
……. sadly they were substituted for lamb chops, not quite the same thing or the fruits de mon drooling revers …. but perfectly acceptable when accompanied by roasties, a touch of sage and onion stuffing, peas, carrots, cauliflower, green beans, broccoli, peas and cabbage and mint jelly, never the less, nom, nom, nom!
