Seduced In Sainsbury's

Della, who reads Going Gently , works on the deli counter in Sainsbury's .
She caught sight of me this morning pushing my trolley, gave me one of those " yoooohoooo" lady calls and waved a premium scotch egg in my direction.
Not fair!
It was like a snake hypnotising a rabbit
I had one wrapped immediately.
How's that for will power......?
and  ate the bloody thing between the toilet rolls and washing powder aisles ( don't worry I paid for it)
and must admit that I was disappointed ......it was dry as a nun's chuff
That will teach me.

I'll leave you with some more International veg entres.....

  2. It's enough to put you off Scotch Eggs for good ....... nooooo silly me don't think that will ever happen ;-)

    You need to call by Bodnant again, you should have seen the size of the luscious Scotch Eggs in the counter last week, you would have been tempted for sure!!

  4. Is 'dry as a nun's chuff' the same as 'dry as a witch's tit'?

  5. "Dry as a nuns chuff" that is a phrase I will commit to memory and use at every inappropriate opportunity. Brilliant!

  9. Never knew what one was before I heard it from you. I think if they were to catch on in the US, they'd have to have something to dip them in like a ranch/siracha dressing.

  10. I burst out laughing at the nun's chuff bit! Don't give in to Della's deli offering again. Just think every time you are tempted to eat a scotch egg, think of the nun's dry chuff and you will immediately be put off! Great veg entries!

  13. Having once spent a weekend in a remote Irish nunnery, I can assure you that you have got the wrong idea about nuns' chuffs.

  14. The only thing worse than foregoing a treat is indulging in one and finding it doesn't measure up to your dreams. By then the calories are already taken in, along with the disappointment!

  16. Karma - telling you to leave the scotch eggs alone.

  17. you need to make your own scotch eggs. then you will never have another chuff stuck in your face.

  18. Our Slimming World consultant gave us a scotch egg recipe that's Syn Free! Why not make your own?

  19. Oh please as I choke on my morning cuppa as I laugh at " dry as a nuns chuff". Hysterical!
    The Aussie equivalent is " dry as a dead dingo's donga " xxx

  20. awwwww so cute. Love the veggie entries.
    When our weather gets under 100 this fall, I will trying to make some scotched eggs. For me it would be how long to cook the egg ?

    cheers, parsnip

  21. very creative flower show veggies!

    I read the directions from "Joy of Cooking" about making Scotch eggs. I'd buy them instead.

  22. Lots of entries.

    You are through the Scotch Egg withdrawal stage. They will never taste the same again!

  23. I hope your experience with that nun didn't put you off. Try more nuns!
