I was very fortunate to be chosen as a #MorrisonsMum over the Bank Holiday weekend. We were kindly gifted some vouchers to spend on food that we’d love to eat (as well as a few usuals) over the long weekend. As Nick and I were heading up to the Lakes for two nights of Busby-free time (before she joined us on Sunday) we decided to pick some luxury items for ourselves, as well as essentials for the week. We spent over an hour in the Kendal Morrisons, carefully choosing and salivating over what to buy!
We were both really impressed with their fresh fruit and veg section – Nick especially so, as he came across a custard apple, which he hadn’t seen since travelling in Australia some seven-plus years ago! Everything was very reasonably priced, with the bargain of the day going to a punnet of strawberries for 99p!
I was (obviously) happy to see that they had a lot of prosecco on offer and found a gorgeous bottle for half price… so we bought three!
The staff were very friendly and incredibly helpful with everything, from cutting our fresh tiger loaf to chatting about the local area. The store was huge; definitely the biggest Morrisons either of us have been in.
We spent quite a lot over our vouchers, but have had enough to feed us for the week in our self-catering apartment.
My highlight meal from the weekend was definitely our last breakfast together, just to two of us on Sunday morning. Nick whipped up a fantastic Eggs Royale and I made the bucksfizz!
|Ingredients… as well as bubbles for Busby!
(Busby’s bubbles were 50p)
|How to make:
Add 1 quarter orange juice (best with juicy bits!) to 3 quarters prosecco, cava or champagne! Ta-da!
Six servings per bottle of prosecco.
Cost per serving: £1.17
Toast your muffins, poach your eggs, add some lemon and pepper to your smoked salmon.
We also bought some hollandaise sauce (Schwartz) but unfortunately it was completely inedible so didn’t use it.
Cost per serving: £2.71
We usually shop at Sainburys and Waitrose when we’re at home, as our nearest Morrisons is in the centre of Brighton. However, we had a lovely time exploring Morrisons in Kendal and would certainly consider shopping there again, as some items were significantly cheaper than our usual supermarkets (namely, fruit and veg)! Best of all, our spend gave us 6p off every litre of fuel we buy for our drive home this weekend. Happy days!
