Gingernuts 25, Sausage Rolls 28

You may remember a little while ago I had a gripe about being shortchanged in our packets of gingernut biscuits, and instead of getting 30 in a 300g pack, on occasion we only had 29. Well this seemed to become the norm rather than the occasional shortfall, so we changed shops. However, Hubby was getting through an awful lot of gingernuts as they are one of the very few things he can snack on any time of the day without having to worry about it. Ginger is very good for us anyway, so this is probably why.
Anyway, we started biscuit counting again (we are so sad) and discovered that although the packet weight was still 300g, we were only getting 25 biscuits in a pack.
OK, they were a minuscule bit bigger, but numbers count in our book biscuit tin!
This would not do at all, so we reverted to our original gingernut supplier and take pot luck of 29 or 30.

Now my song choice today is a fun cover that was the Christmas Number One in 2018

I am rather partial to sausage rolls, and whenever my Mum cooked them, I could sniff them out at 100 yards, so it was pointless her trying to hide them. Christmas afternoon would not be Christmas without sausage rolls to nibble, so we bought some today to put in the freezer. We had a choice of 30 mini rolls for £3, or 20 for £2, so seeing as it was more than likely to just be me eating them, we opted for the 20 pack which I split to freeze in two packs of ten……….. except we had 28 in our box! Hurrah!!
Now that’s what I call a Christmas Bonus!
Enjoy the music.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  3. I’ve never had a sausage roll either, but they sound scrumptious! Just FYI, you got a bitty reblog of this post on mine. That song had to be shared about! 😉

    I suppose packaged food goes by weight, but we have the same thing when we get frozen breaded shrimp. Sometimes there are 10, 11, 12, or 13. I always count them and each time is different! haha
    Oh, love that song, too. I’ve had it on my bookmarks for a few years so I can hear it every so often. Such a fun video. 🙂
