Cheesy, Cheesy Cheesy

Day  148

Money Spent in Total - £145.46  Vouchers/Points/Credits Spent in Total - £191.36
Emergency £5 Spent on Butter
Money left in purse  - £2.54
Oooh .... I'm down again to £2.54 in my purse.  I don't like it when the money drops below £5, so I really do have to stop shopping ... and I mean it really STOP shopping for a while and let the money build up again.
But I couldn't resist the offer of some of our favourite cream cheese for just £1 a tub.  So these little tubs should last us a while .... and it gives me something to dip my celery in :-)

  1. I haven't eaten any really delicious celery for ages - although I love it. In Sainsburys it now seems to come from abroad all year round. We have tried growing it many times over the years but always without much success.

    1. I had loads of success when I grew it in my last polytunnel, the only thing was it was very strong tasting and only really suitable for cooking with. I guess if it had grown outdoors it might have had more natural rainwater and tasted slightly milder.

  2. I have tried all the supermarket cheap versions of Philidelphia but nothing is as good, I add some when I do a potato bake.x

    1. I like it when they have it on offer and it's almost as cheap as the supermarkets own. I do think it's worth paying a little bit more for it every time though as it tastes so much better, and I find you need less to get a really lovely flavour in dishes such as your potato bake.

  3. I do love Philly too, a couple of months ago discovered the salmon one which is really delicious. May need to pop in and stock up, I eat it on reduced price bagels!

  4. I was going to suggest the value soft cheese as I have found it such a wonderfully versatile ingredient on the blog ( I have never done a direct comparison for flavour, perhaps I should!

    Do you do anything else with it, as an ingredient?
