Over the bank holiday weekend a number of blogger were selected to be a #Morrisonsmum and #Morrisonsdad, I was lucky enough to be one of them.
First of all I have to say I have never set foot in Morrisons in my life so this would be a totally new experience for me. It turned out to be a very good one!
I was given £80 worth of vouchers to spend in the store (thank you Morrisons and Britmums!) and told to shop as I normally would and see if their new ‘I’m Cheaper‘ campaign would help us get a little more for our buck. Given that the Morrisons new campaign is all about permanent price cuts on thousands of items you can sure bet we got more. 96 items to be exact!
I want to start with touching on some things we particularly liked about our visit to Morrisons.
Quality and Range of Products
I was really amazed at the quality of the fresh fruit, veg and herbs. The herbs in particular were sat in this kind of open refrigerator where they were being sprayed with really cold water mist to keep them at their best.
With a huge (and I mean huge) range of products and so many vegetables that I’ve never even seen or heard of before, Morrisons is the place to go if you want something new and exotic.
Offers & Prices
With Morrisons just starting their new ‘I’m Cheaper‘ campaign over thousands of products (not only their own but also big named brands) we found lots of amazing offers and even items that were at their normal price were pretty low to be honest.
I’m mostly surprised by the quality and price of their meat. We got a pack of two very large, tick cut Rump Steaks for just £5.26 which would usually be about £15-£20 elsewhere.
We have been asked to share a recipe with you and to also share a breakdown of the costs for a meal so here we go..
Herby Chicken and Roast Veggies
Chicken – £5.32
Sage Bunch – 79p (we used 1 sprig – 9p worth)
Rosemary Bunch – 79p (we used 2 sprigs – 15p worth)
1 Lemon – 25p
Carrots – 44p
Parsnips – 99p
Potatoes – £2.19
We cooked this to feed four but had an extra meal and a half worth left over so this would make it £1.85 per meal. Great right?!
If you wondering – we already have gravy and stuffing at home.
And for our recipe:
Raspberry and White Chocolate Tray Bake
What you need:
250g Ready-Made Shortcrust Pastry
50g Golden Caster Sugar
1 Large Egg
250g Fresh Raspberries
100g White Chocolate, Roughly Chopped
What to do:
Step 1. Heat oven to 160c/fan 140c/gas 4. Roll out the pastry a and place in a tin. Line with greaseproof paper, fill with baking beans and cook for 10 minutes. Take out the beans and paper, then return to the oven for a further 5 minutes.
Step 2. Whisk together the mascarpone, sugar and eggs. Fold in the raspberries and chocolate, then pour into the tin. Bake for 20-25 minutes until just set and lightly golden. Turn off the oven, open the door and leave the tray bake to cool gradually.
For the best results, chill for at least 1 hour before slicing.
This is very rich so you only need small squares of it. We got 24 large bit sized pieces out of ours. Of course if you have a sweet tooth you could have 12 large pieces.
So there we have it. The outcome…We LOVED our trip to Morrisons!
