I never really go shopping in co-op, and it did surprise me that things seemed generally a bit more expensive than my usual tesco shop - however it is a very handy around-the-corner store if you have one close by, and with a very good moral ethos concerning fair trade/pay so I guess it's all a compromise.

I chose to put in the Poached egg for breakfast this week as it is a trick I recently discovered, and I was so impressed with it that I have been making it very regularly myself. Eggs are very good for breakfast, but many people assume that anything with eggs will take a lot of time and effort to prepare and make - hopefully this time-saving Poached egg technique will help you squeeze them into any morning!

I tried to make this menu a little seasonal – but turkey sandwiches worked out too expensive, so I settled for ham – sorry! I’ve added mince pies to make up for it though! enjoy!
