I'm a wee bit late tonight, had a lovely day out at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park near Wakefield. This has been on my list of places to visit for a while now, and the weather looked promising this morning so it was a spur of the moment decision to go. It's about 45 miles away, via Doncaster and Barnsley, I always manage to get lost going through Barnsley, the sign posting is a bit confusing.
Anyway, I have lots of photo's to sort out, it's getting a bit late now so I'll post them tomorrow. Halfway between Doncaster and Barnsley there is a man who sells vegetables from his trailer in a layby at the side of the road. He has been there years, but I have never stopped before because he has very large bags and he dosen't split them. The sign said Carrots £1.50, so I pulled in. Here is my bag of carrots, it is a massive bag, the type you see in supermarkets, they cut the bag open and you choose your own. I don't know how I'm going to fit all those in my fridge, ha ha. I also bought a bag of potatoes for £3.00. The man said they would keep for ages in a cool place. I'm well pleased, they will keep me going for ages.
As usual I timed my return to call in at Tesco on the way in. I was a bit too early for the really cheap reduced stuff, but I got some bread and mushrooms, better than nowt. I went down the long life milk aisle to get some evaporated milk. I am quite liking this at the moment, as an alternative to soya milk. Last week it was 59p a tin, and as I dilute it for cereals I thought that was a good buy. I had a bit of a surprise, there was a whole shelf full of it, and it was marked at 30p. I checked the date, Feb 2013, so what's the catch, perhaps they had too much of it. I bought 24 tins, I might go back for more.
I need some more cat food so I went to Sainsbury's just down the road, as they have a two for £5 offer on. I stocked up and bought 12 boxes. I'm glad I went because they had just done their final mark down for the night, I managed to get all this, bread, salad, Houmous, fruit and vegetables, for £2.09. That's cheered me up no end, I'm dead chuffed with that. I'll enter all this in the food diary tomorrow.
Look at Mayze watching me putting the shopping away, she makes me laugh.
