It wouldn't be easy would it.

As handy says much would be basic cheap foods but if you can pick up the meat/fish supermarkets are selling off, bulk it out with plenty of veg and potatoes so it makes more than one meal - there could be some decent meals thrown in.

I actually picked up some fresh fish from Tesco's last week at a really cut down price and yes I froze some of it, but the Salmon we ate with a salad and baby potatoes the same day - and there was plenty of Salmon for the price.

Plenty of choices on there Scimitar.
No doubt we will give it a try, if we don't like it we won't go back.

TBH I'd never heard the stairs referred to as Jacobs ladder. It was always the 'wooden ladder' in our house ?
Might be a biblical conotation <--- Is that spelt right LOL

Being 'Chapel People' I imagine in my mums case it would be Biblical.

In the Bible Jacob had a dream in which he saw a ladder reaching from earth up into Heaven.

Hence the saying.

Chesterfield's must be doing well then  ;) I have to admit that apart from the Christmas meet it's not a pub I go in.

Meanwhile I have heard that the Smithy Pond in Wingerworth is closing for a re-furb later this year, and re-opening as a Hungry Horse place. never heard of Hungry Horse so I've no idea what to expect - ?
