HOW MUCH???????

Last night Tony and I fancied fish and chips from our local chippy. Tony was duly despatched to collect them while I made a pot of tea and buttered the bread.  When he came back we tucked in and thoroughly enjoyed them.  I really wish to heck that they wouldn't pile so many chips into the portion though. I find it really off putting and only ever eat half.  The grand cost of this simple treat......£12....  I won't be buying any more from there. That is nearly one third of the usual cost my weekly grocery spend.  We are supposed to be living frugally in order for Tony to be able to retire......I shall have to pull the belt in even tighter...

  1. They are a bit expensive now, I consider chip shops chips a treat. I don't mind a large portion, because I microwave what I can't eat, the following day. Still fine to eat.

  2. We buy one portion between us and it costs £6.80.

  3. I can remember the days when fish and chips was a cheap meal, now it is dearer than a roast dinner.

  4. We also buy one portion between us and find that is as much as we can eat. The portions of chips are enormous.
