Buy my wine by the box so I can drink it over a week or so . I know, shouts of philistine, should be shot, etc. But if its good enough for our neighbours......
I'm growing what I can but with last years influx of visitors the veggie patch got neglected but maybe I've got a new New years resolution.
Our boulanger makes a 'Boulot'(sp?) for only 59c and its superb, a bigger one is 90c. OK make your own in the winter when the cuisiniere is burning but mid summer?
My best tip tho is to compare Average French shopping prices with Lidl, Leader Price and Aldi and then what I can get on line at UK prices +10% delivery and bulk buy in advance from the least expensive source. there are times when some 'English' goods are cheaper in a normal Supermarche than in a dedicated English emporium, as when I ran out of Dundee Marmalade recently after TOH started baking Christmas stuff.
PS Maybe I should have said British stuff, Dundee not having moved that I know of, but Marmalade is Spanish for Jam innit?
