Sainsbury's Cherry scones

I need an unbiased appraisal from the tank.

On Sunday I bought a pack of four cherry scones from Sainsburys (no apostrophe) for 69p.

between us we have consumed three out of the four so far. One had fivecherries in and the other two had one cherry each. There are some red bits in the scones as well that might feasibly be cherry particles but i don't think that should count.

So that's an average of 2.33 cherries per scone. The other scone looks to be similarly constituted, but is being retained as potential evidence.

What is a reasonable number of cherries to expect in a cherry scone?

Technically you could argue that the existence of one cherry per scone is sufficient.

I'll buy some tomorrow and proffer a second opinion if that's OK.

I know that their blueberry muffins (from the bakery not pre-packed) are quite generous.

It is Sainsbury's, btw.

Hpw many apostrophes should we really expect in Sainsbury's?

Gluten free scones usually have loads of them in, you're being conned you gluten eating fools!

*mind you they do cost 20 times more than the ordinary ones*

is that because it's Mr Sainsbury's shop?
Butts

Lord Sainsbury I think.

I forgot to get them btw. They're on tomorrow's shopping list along with tights, bananas and maltesers.

they're not very nice, a bit floury - but at 69p for 4 what do you expect.

do you wear the tights when you're running on a cold day?  
Butts

Try the white chocolate and raspberry muffins - I've just eaten three.

Tights and bananas?....This needs explaining.

Don't forget the Maltesers.
Butts

We have like a list stuck to the fridge which is updated now and again. The last time I looked it said tights, bananas, maltesers, the implication being that it'll be me that goes to the shop and I will instantly be expected to get the correct colour and denier.

Ask Bearing: he's into that sort of stuff.

I have no idea. I know she likes her bananas bent.

You could be right I don't know. Having said that I would be appalled if she got me some socks.

The basis of a good relationship.

A place should be found in the marriage vows for that.
Carp

So.....Did you get the tights and bananas?
Pond Life

Did you bring the bananas home in the tights?

I may run into sainsburys tomorrow and demand at the top of my voice "Give me some tights and bananas and for goodness sakes HURRY!"
Butts

I did  - sheer black, 15 denier. No good for a bank raid.

Because of the lack of pockets?
Butts

It was a complicated shop, made more difficult by having to get face wipes, tampons and some nail stuff. It's her birthday today but I resisted the temptation to gift wrap everything (including the bananas).
Pond Life

Happy Birthday Mrs Butts.
Butts

Thank you, she says.
Pond Life

Did she have a cake with a candle?

She still has time for Reg to grant her a birthday wish, what should i go and ask him for?

Where does she see herself in a years time?
Pond Life

He's fucked off!! That'll be his fault if she doesn't get her wish.

Maybe that was her wish

Harsh, make him get tights then wish him away.
Fin

Maybe he forgot the Maltesers

Sorry, we went to a local restaurant called the Olive Tree with loads of friends for a very nice meal and they dimmed the lights and served up a cake with a candle.

The highlight was when she ordered a lamb steak with chips from the specials board. Instead of chips it came with mashed potato but when she moved the meat there were saute potatoes underneath, by which time a bowl of chips had arrived followed soon after by a side plate of veg - with boiled potatoes!

I think she'd ask Reg to sort out her boss, please and in a year's time she'd like a new boss, thank you.

You snake hipped cavalier. You certainly know how to spoil a lady, showering her with gifts like that!

Belated happy birthday, Mrs B.

Re: the lamb'n'potato feast. I thought the Olive Tree was a Greek restaurant, not an Irish one.
Pond Life

I have had a word with Reg, he didn't look like he was paying attention but he's like that.

We have an olive tree here, just 5 mins up the road, real Italian food with a proper Italian deli on the side, they make some delish grub in there.
Butts

PM is right this is Greek and the thing with the potatoes was just bizarre...amd hilarious. The best thing was the baklava.
Plastic Man

I presume this was the Olive Tree in downtown CA. I have heard that it is, along with its sister restaurant in Headingley, very good.

Have you tried both?

Any recommendations?

I do like Greek food. Some of the main dishes could even be Irish, but with the addition of garlic and oregano. Though the Greeks don't appear to be too fond of variants of boiled bacon.
Butts

Yes it's pretty good. The fish platter is nice (16.50) although the prawns were overcooked so I sent them back and they were OK in the end. Rice is very good and someone had the moussaka and said it was very good also.

Re: The Irish connection. Moussaka = shepherd's pie for those who have run out of potatoes and have got a few aubergines instead.

Indeed, in light of your account of the variety of potato dishes on offer, I'm surpised they didn't try substituing them instead.
