Burger melts from Aldi!

I refuse to belive the summer is gone... nope... I'm not having it! 
So, I'm still holding out for a lovely BBQ any day now! Without the muggy, grey, overcast shite we're having the moment... and I decided, when the time comes and I'm the 'hostess with the mostess' it'll be fancy burgers with a side of notions on the grill and then I spotted these in ALDI! Burger melts... add them to you lovely chargrilled burger, lash on all the salads and let it rest and get all melty! No reason you coldn't add them to lots of things to get that melty cheese goodness! I spotted three flavours to choose from and I've done the SPs per 25 g melt and for two just in case you fancy a second one! 

Any tried them out?

Stir In Pasta Sauces from Ballymaloe!

Spotted in my local Dunnes stores, new 'stir in' pasta sauces from Ballymaloe!
180g jars so small but as you'd expect, packed with flavour... if the endless cooking is getting to you, lash one of these in some pasta with some bacon bits and top with cheese, sure you're practically in Italy! I've also added the large 400g jars and the new 'hidden veggies' version I haven't seen before... if the little ones are sick of veggies it might be worth a look to trick them into some extra veg...
