this morello cherry pie was reduced yesterday from £1.25 to 31p. it serves for my breakfast this morning. rather nice too, it has a distinctive flavour, i wonder if they put liquor in it. usually they have rhubarb pie reduced in price, and i dont buy it even at the reduced price because  it is not as nice as this.

there were doughnuts on reduced price too. 5 for 20p, (from 75p) filled with custard. i was debating whether to buy them but the cherry pie won. haha. partly because i suspect the doughnuts with custard will be very sweet. 

the book it is on is called the second worst restaurant in france, by alexander mccall smith. i have finished it allready, and is a pleasant romp that cleverly evokes the british view of what they think french people are like. i wonder what french people really think of it, but perhaps they dont read his books. but for us here in uk, it is a fun easy read and trigger off a romantic idea of what we think french village life is like.

    Wow! A steal of a bargain really and a pity you did not get rhubarb! I love rhubarb as it is tangy and I miss eating it in USA. You get really good deals and this makes shopping really fun as you find such delish choices.

    here, the final reduction is a quarter of the normal price. so it is a bit of potluck what gets left over at the end of the day for it to be reduced. i see rhubarb being sold as vegetables, but never bought them as i dont know how to cook them. i suppose they would go into a stew but not sure if i would like the taste of that stew. its interesting that u like the taste of it. in a pie, they put so much suger in it, they have to so that it masks the tartness. and you dont get any bits and pieces of rhubarb, ( though i am not sure i want it if they do), unlike in apple pie, or cherry.
