Nope, eat in only I'm afraid :)

I can always offer you my recepie for each of the dishes :wink: :wink:

I've cooked a lovely and very hot chilli con carne today and dried the last batch of this years' Somerset grown chillies (grown on dad's sunny windowsill).

I dried the chilies in a very low oven for about six hours...

I put them in a dark brown pie dish, in the sun for a day. Does the job too. :P The richness of home-dried chillies is just amazing; so fruity compared to bought stuff.

Guess what. I had a Greggs Steak Bake today.

Nothing remarkable about that, but how about the "festive" bag it came in.

So just posting it up for "blood boiling" purposes, for true devotees of this thread :-D

Whats there not to get annoyed about?
Not just a world first of an interactive paper bag but also..
Instructions on how to download an "App" and "Blipp the bag" to try on your virtual Santa Beard, and then share it with your friends.
Worse still share your "hashtag PastySanta Selfie" for a chance to win prizes
You think I am making this up don't you? Well here's the evidence

That arouses my ire not for the Christmas aspect, but for the barefaced attempt at harvesting consumer data.

I'd take a nude selfie using the lame "beard" as a substitute merkin and upload it through a proxy...

I agree about harvesting details. All so they can spam us :twisted:

Advent isn't here yet but that hasn't stopped people and businesses decorating the outside world already.

Best way to tell when it's really Christmas? .... Easer eggs in the shops!
