In a perfect world I’d be Jamie Oliver-ing it in the kitchen getting knife happy with exotic looking veg and cooking everything from scratch . This however, is not a perfect world and I don’t have the face shape or bone structure to pull off Jamie Oliver's hair, and the most exotic veg in my local green grocers is some questionably shaped carrots and swede.
On the days when you’ve got in after dropping an all time record of 7pint glasses at the pub, or tripped an old lady up whilst showing her the cod liver oil, or a day when you hoovered your own skirt up in the Henry Hoover and flashed your knickers to a line of waiting traffic outside the shop (just a few examples of the stressful working days I’ve had in various employments) the last thing you want to do is go out of your way to pick up a quick dinner at the Big Supermarket.
And by Jove that will not be me anymore (or you either if you have a local Co-Op) because my newly appointed Co-Op mere sneezing distance from my house will now be stocking various frozen delights from the Dietary Specials range. Yes, my friends I’m now one of those people who can say ‘yeah, I think I’m just going to pick up a pizza on my way home from work’… I will be a NORMAL person (well, y’know as normal as a nut like me can get). Its all very well and good cooking everything from scratch and yes sometimes I’m massively smug about it, but I want to be able to get home from a stressful shopping trip (during which I couldn’t find a)anything I wanted and b)my mate found everything she did) and pop something easy in the oven while I chill out on the sofa in my scruffs with the best of ‘em.
As well as the Margarita Pizza, the Co-Op will also be stocking my all time favourite and lunch box lovely the Sausage Rolls and also the never be beaten Yorkshire Puddings which as an honouree Yorkshire lass myself I can vouch are A-mazing!
I've said it once, and I'll say it again it ain't all about the biscuits and cupcakes, it's brilliant to see meal options locally available from Dietary Specials. Bon appetit!
