Hot Cross Buns are Addictive

On offer at the moment on a 2 for 1 deal at Sainsburys. I'll bet these little beauties are selling like hot cakes. They are meant to be Lenten, I think, but personally I find them very moreish! I'm hooked and its getting sinful! If you really want to save money, you can make them, care of a recipe from our Delia.

When I was a lad you could only buy them on Good Friday (or for a few days around then). They are on sale all year round at Sainsbury now, I think. They are always very scrumptious when toasted and smothered with lashings of butter and a cup of Yorkshire Tea. Not very lenten at all...
They were selling 12 for £2 at M&S the other day ;-)

I wonder which ones are the nicest? Tescos, Sainsbury's or M&S's?
I ate two Tescos buns earlier, toasted, infact slightly burnt, but still delicious............
I think I'lll try Marky's ones tomorrow.
Now that is what I call going upmarket.

I still haven't tried the posh ones yet.I'll need lurpak butter aswell, which is two spreadable tubs for four quid at the co-op at the moment although utterly butterly is much less expensive and also on offer.
I do like my b.o.g.o.f bargains! (buy one, get one free).

Saturday's sensless chat comment (sorry).
Shhh....don't let people know we're eating dairy products over Lent. It's our little secret.

Too late, someone's bound to digitally trace my comment and then word will spread, like butter (groan.........sorry, my jokes get worse). I need to go outside and walk, in fresh air.
