    This might have been done (to death) before. I thought I would try Iceland as there is one in town (three miles away) and they have not long opened one of their "Food Whorehouse" stores too. If you wanted to stock up with a big freezer it would be a good place, and I have discovered the best frozen take-away sytle curry ever from there. (Not telling, you might nick 'em all!) Iceland do free next day delivery over 35 quid spend. I got to just over the 35 quid and booked my slot for today, everything fine. I then went on Morrisons and entered all the same stuff (there were some decent offers) and that came to over 40 quid, near as dammit like for like. Morrisons own brand bread is cheaper, and they had full price on things like Cadbury's Mini Rolls (which I could probably eat five of at once!), but saving 5 quid is good I thought, and I think you have to spend more to get delivery from Morrisons, and their slots are always booked, and they charge. Iceland is far from perfect, as there are many things they lack that I want, and the fresh veg choice is poor. My daughter uses Morrisons (I think she has tried them all pretty much) but she has many mouths to feed, whereas there is just me and the cat, and I get his food from Aldi (except his wafer thin ham treats and cheese treats). In this current bout of Covid (I got through the first lot unscathed) a few less trips to mingle with the great unmasked is probably worth it. I looked at Waitrose for a laugh, but their minimum for delivery is too high for me, and their prices!

    Given that this is the cookery forum, I'm not sure you have too much to worry about there...

    I also make the best curry ever anyway, but not in "for one" portions. Not all cooks cook all the time (or are we back to the "snobbery" again?)

    Nothing snobby about the fact that most of us prefer cooking from scratch and are pretty capable of making a curry from scratch.

    Many of us have cba nights even if we do enjoy cooking. Nothing wrong with the odd cheat.

    #2 It was only a wry comment with slightly humorous intent!

    The freezer is your friend.
