After seeing the Sainsbury advert for mashed sweet potato last night on TV, the powers that be set the wheels in motion for S and myself to happen upon the overpriced supermarket today. We took a walk around Cramond despite the gusty weather, and, on our return drive, came upon a Sainsbury’s supermarket. This was only the second time I’d driven around this part of town and we did need to get some food shopping and Sainsbury’s would have usually been out of the question because as far back as I can remember, my experiences of shopping at Sainsbury’s have always been expensive.
Anyway, we’re back home now, and spent £79 on 55 items. All good items, healthy and in minimal packaging.
Sweet Potato Mash with Kofta Meatballs
And here’s what we ate this Easter Monday evening: Boiled sweet potatoes, mashed up with sour cream and some garlic. The potatoes were ever so tasty and sweet as the name would suggest, and went perfectly with the “kofta” meatballs, also sweet for some reason, and the rustic (?) fresh spinach and watercress, plum tomato and cucumber salad. Felt healthy, was perfectly adequately filling, and easy-on-the-conscience food.
