I'm inclined to agree with you, MM. I have two friends who go to supermarkets on a Sunday so they can get all of the "bargains" - by and large they buy ready meals and raw meat they can stick in with a jar of sauce. The jar of sauce meal is seen as "cooking" to them. I know that they buy fruit & veg reduced at this price too but I also know that they throw it away at the end of the week because 1) they don't eat it and 2) they don't really know what to do with it apart from boiling it which "is boring". I've made simple suggestions on what they could use it for but I think they just can't be bothered.
