Welcome to Margaret Halz via here.
Changed our shopping day to today as DB had to go and pick up some new spectacles. He had dropped and driven over his last pair whilst on holiday - like you do!
Certainly a lot of Halloween, Bonfire and Christmas items appearing now. We buy just one or two extra German items for Christmas such as Stollen and Lebkucken and that is about that on the 'sweet' things.
I have enough ingredients now to make a half batch of mincemeat - can't abide the bought stuff, way to sweet - plus one or two different types of green tomato chutney. I will also have to bake GF bread sometime over the weekend as we are nearly out of it. Again, don't like the bought stuff - a bit too dry - but although my home made version is softer and far less dry, it doesn't always work and I can't fathom out why. Ah well.
That's it for now folks, have a lovely weekend!
