    I reckon you could split the difference, a wee earner for both of you :)

    They keep a track of what we claim discount on, and if anything looks fishy, you get investigated.
    And discount abuse is instant dismissal.

    I know some companies le you claim for family & friends, or give you a set amount of discount to use as you like over the year, but not JLP.

    You claim for something you shouldn't, and you're history.

    Sainsbury's butter chicken 3.80

    Have this once a week with chipps and salad if you like a mild rich curry with lots of chicken you cant go wrong 8.5/10

    charlie binghams Meatballs al FornoHandmade pork and beef meatballs with fresh fusilli grande pasta in our rich tomato sauce, topped with Italian mozzarella

    verry tasty dish but is expensive 6 bought it when it was on offer for 4 and loved it but has way to much garlic in it but verry filling and has a unusual type of spiral pasta in it the only thing is not to over cook it 7/10

    Waitrose Indian ready meals are fantastic. The beef masala is particularly nice.

    Lidl's Marathon clone is better than the original, I suspect. Quite a long time since I've had the Mars version (as you can tell by the fact I called it a Marathon), but these seem to pack more peanuts in them. Their twixes on the other hand are an almost carbon copy, just missing the wiggly lines on the base.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    I have to declare these are the best crisp style snack I have ever had. Going to Waitrose tomorrow to score a bunch of them.

    Cheesy flavour like Cheetos, and so hard they can break fillings.

    I too like salad very much.

    But not with curry.

    My current favourite cupboard scraping meal is boiled potatoes (new, obv), and then chucking anything on top with olive oil and mustard. Spinach, feta, tomatoes, green beans etc.

    Asda Extra Special Goose Fat Potatoes with Thyme. Delicious.

    Morrisons are currently selling 'swiss style muesli bread' with loads of grains and raisins.

    It's lovely on it's own or with some nutella.

    Yum.

    Favorina chocolate gingerbread


    1.79 for 500g from Lidil

    Like the name suggests this is gingerbread covered in a thin layer of either milk or dark chocolate. I plumped for the milk chocolate variety.

    The texture of the gingerbread is nothing short of excellent, being fluffy yet carrying exactly the right amount of weight to fill the mouth pleasantly. The thickness of the chocolate covering is perfectly balanced to give the texture and taste of melting chocolate on the tongue during the bite, but to not interfere with the flavour of the gingerbread itself. The latter is what makes this product as it has the smokey-yet-sweet darkness that is often lacking in pre-packaged gingerbread products. In the world of sweet Christmassy snacks this is nothing less than a tour-de-force.

    10/10

    Sainsburys basics salmon and fish pie. Surprisingly good and only 70p or something ridiculous.

    If there is one thing those foreigners do well, it's gingerbready Christmas-themed biscuitry. Can you get some of the dark and review that? I feel it's warming bitterness will perfectly complement the smokey-yet-sweet darkness.

    If that's the same biscuits i bought from lidl last year, the dark chocolate ones are great DaM.

    Edit: Having checked they're not, but they do a pack of 8 or 10 large round gingery biscuits a bit like that, but choc lightly on one side only which are awesome. I actually had to limit my purchases of them.

    One of my wife's Euro colleagues sends the kids a big bag of German Xmas gingerbread stuff every year, it's amazing - I think it's dusted in crack. They don't see much of it. We send chocolate oranges in return.

    Yeah, I thought he was on about those until I clicked through to the image. These are nice, but somehow they didn't do it for me.
