After a few stressful days trying to get DB's repeat prescription from the pharmacy, I ended up at Asda at 8pm to pick it up ready for the next morning. It wasn't quite ready so I had a wander to the reduced section and as nothing there had a look to see if any fruit or veg reduced. Couldn't see anything at first then noticed some big boxes with yellow stickers. They were boxes of wonky veg reduced from £3.60 to 20p! I staggered with one to the check-out and decanted the contents into my shopping trolley which fortunately I had taken as I walk there.
The cashiers were very surprised and I told them plenty more there if they wanted to make soup. The reply was they couldn't be bothered. Well I could. The contents were sweet potatoes, carrots, a huge swede, a white cabbage, 3 peppers, leeks and new potatoes. I had to throw a sweet potato and a few carrots but still very good value.
My freezer now contains several portions of soupe au chou from Delia's frugal food. That is bacon and white cabbage soup. I had some and it is really nice. I also made a large box of coleslaw with carrot, cabbage and leek. The rest has been used in various meals. So at least something good came out of the prescription mix up.
