Consider yourself as in a clothes shop – look around, try the ideas on for size, take what’s right for you and leave the rest for someone else.

Spring has Sprung: wild garlic!

wild garlic

Spring has finally arrived, and we couldn’t be happier. The wild garlic is through in the woods, the crocus and snowdrop flowers are beautiful… though we still need the log-burner on of an evening here in Scotland.

Recipes using wild garlic:
pesto and creamy carrot soup We’ve also been adding it to sauces and stews.

Cheap clothes and shoes to brighten up your wardrobe: Everything5Pounds and Schuh Imperfects We do miss the charity shops at the moment.

For foody bargains and filling up your cupboards see Approved Food. We’ve been using them for years and have saved hundreds.
