    Been looking through the latest SW mag and I have to say I really am disappointed. I absolutely hate salad which most of the recipes are based around this month :(

    Me too! I did think it was pretty rubbish in general, but Im gonna try the picallili (which Ive got soaking right now!), the sundried tomatoes and the beetroot hummus. Im also gonna do the lentil salad with halloumi tomorrow.

    That's pretty much it tho, the others have all been done loads of times. Might have a go at some of the Indian salads, well just the lamb really, the potatoes coleslaw and salad are pretty much derivatives of standard stuff. Looking forward to my pickles tho!

    I thought a lot of them were just variations of recipes that have already been in the mags recently. I liked the deli style ones too!

    In the end there is only so much you can do with the free food plus a few syns.

    I had a look in asda today and I agree that is is a very poor magazine this time


    Wow I couldn't disagree more! If you believe that how on earth do you see yourself following SW for the rest of your life?

    I am 11 years down the line and still not exhausted all the possibilities - there are always new recipes and foods to try out.

    I think the recipes in the new mag look brilliant! Usually, I am not impressed, but I love this edition.

    I agree. I didn't buy last months but having flicked through this months I would like to buy it. I am a fan of salad though.

    I do think it is possible to be hugely creative with all the free food and spices available on SW though and agree with Circes in that respect. Just look at some of the creative recipes on here and adaptations of other recipes.

    I was quite disappointed, there's nothing in there that I wanted to try. Forced me to look back through my recipe books though to come up with my meals for this week :)

    Is it out in the shops yet? I have mags from years ago and sometimes they do repeat them. I am always up for something new though.

    Yes I noticed they repeated the quorn sausage jambalya this month from a mag I've got from a few years back. It's a nice recipe though - if you don't already have it.

    The leek and pea pasta recipe on p84 was in the magazine last Autumn. Worth repeating though as it is gorgeous!
