You've survived it well PhilPub.  SuperCaz there is always something to counter a well made point!!  Bet they don't do pork chops or chicken breasts in 3s though. Then again neither do chickens I suppose!

As I am having to adapt to a household of one, I'm finding it quite hard to break previous habits and buy food in smaller quantities.  I used to have a huge kitchen, with a huge fridge and chest freezer so I could buy in bulk and store it before it went off.  I very rarely threw food out, helped by having a husband that had hollow legs so we never had left overs.

Now I have a smaller place and have nowhere to store multibuy items. Even standard packs of food are too big for me.  I bought some pesto and it did me nearly every meal for a week.  I can see the temptation to put a bit more pesto in each meal so that you use it up quicker and if you took that approach to everything then the pounds would soon pile on.

You can buy pesto ? Strange easier to just make what you need at the time you want it

And when I had a house with space then I would have.  But I don't have the storage space to store the left over pinenuts, or a garden to grow the basil in, or the implements to make it, and it is still a lot of faff when you only want one spoon full.

I really fancy a custard cream...the bigger the better

If we are talking booze, then always large! Restaurant wise, if they offer portion sizes then it's probably not worth going in. I don't visit coffee shops that often (can't remember the last time) but I would have a small. Again though I would expect the quality to be average at best when being offered size choices.

I'm all for multibuy offers though - what's wrong with saving money at the supermarket? Freeze what you can't eat or if that is not an option then exercise a bit of will power. Only you shove it in your mouth...

Yeah, but if you have it at home, you eat it.

And if you go in a shop to buy one, you buy four.

So you end up eating four.

 


You might, but that is only due to your poor diet and lack of self control

 

(But I suppose it is easier to blame someone else)

A lot of assumptions here.

Well either you do have a loack of self control in which case QED, or

you don't in which case what are you moaning about ?

Make loads and freeze in ice cube trays, when solid tip out and store in a poly bag in the freezer... Tip #65  Delia the Ex Spartan

Colin, it would be awesome if you could write 'Dave is rude.' on your post it note. Well maybe awesome is over egging it, vaguely amusing to me would cover it.

Waste of a Post-it note.

I'm not rich you know.

No wonder they kicked him out of the Spartans.

They took away his caravan too, but that's another story.

22/06/2012 at 17:42

Tell me it.

Well, one day he had a caravan, the next he didn't. Well maybe it was the next week or a few months but the end result is the same.

Losing a caravan can change a person.

22/06/2012 at 17:49

Once upon a time there was Dave, a caravan, and a load of Spartans, and then, after a while, there was only Dave?

If you said taters, I would have said yes, but laters has just confused me.
