That is indeed the question.
Until a week or so ago I was firmly on the Not on your Nellie side. For the most part I still am.
There are a few exceptions, the main one being Marmite! Love it in lots of beany meals, on toast, under cheese on anything, on a spoon. You name it and 5 will give you 20 that I love it.
I also like Vegemite, it has it's place in my kitchen.
Parmesan cheese is another, in my book there is no substitute, I do use Grana Pandano but in its own right, not as a sub.
My conversion, completely out of character is fairy Liquid. !!
Then came the day when my bottle in use ran out. there was no spare in store!!?
How did that happen? A serious shopping glitch.
Rats, there was washing up to finish and no way was I driving out just for 1 item.
It was a lovely day so, grabbing bag, purse and after dragging a brush through my hair, I set off to the village shop.
I had my sights set on the cheapest of the cheap, it was only for 3 days till shopping day came round.
Lo and behold nestle cheek by jowl were the stinky green slimy stuff and the glistening yellow that is fairy liquid, On Offer no less.
It worked out very little more per 100 ml than the cheapo, something like 0.07p.
I had a bottle through the till and was off home in no time.
It dawned upon me last night as the washing up was done that there is more than half the bottle left. A Maz Ing Dahling.
BTW What did you think of the substitute judge?
I am now a Fairy Liquid user, a convert no less.
BUT, that will not drive me to rush out and follow the label bandwagon.
I will be sniffing out the offers and shopping wisely, between the shops in Pontardawe I can get just about everything and the rest is only a click away. I save on prices, time and petrol which in turn saves on wear and tear.
No sewing today, it will be layering and pinning.
I will see you on the other side.
