I bought a jar of pickled onions last year from the Cash and Carry, a big jar for only 60p. It was out of date when I bought it. I like pickled onions but probably didn't need to buy a jar that big, the price made it very tempting.
You can just about make out the date on the lid, Feb 2018. I had to stab it with a pointy knife to release the pressure before I could open it.
I don't have any fresh onions in so tonight I used half of the jar in this veg curry. I cut each one in half, added some frozen veg, Quorn mince, and a fresh courgette and half a fresh carrot. The pasta was bought on a yellow sticker. I have three portions of this left, won't freeze it but keep it in the fridge and that's my dinner for the next three nights. Or I might have it for lunch.
So if you are cooking and need onions, and haven't any, use the pickled variety instead.
The disappearing blog post. Yes I will delete them, as and when I see fit to do so.
Hello, I am a 73 year old retired lorry driver. After trucking for 32 years I'd had enough, went part time when I was in my mid 50's and stopped altogether when I reached 60. Yippeeee, now I am free to do as I like. I live with three cats, I am very careful with my spending, only buying what I need. I have no qualms about buying second hand from car boot sales and charity shops, and getting free stuff from skip diving. Money saved is put towards holidays, a decent car, and days out. I love life, and it needn't cost a fortune to enjoy it.
