    corned beef and farmfoods mac cheese was free?

    Ah the days. Munched on a wee bit of corned beef today and felt like I had to sin it, even although it corned beef clearly hasn't changed over the years lol

    The mac cheese was to die for. Came in a twin pack for £1 I used to have it with tonnes of salad. MMmmm

    Corned beef. Stagg Chilli, and much more - those were the days (my first time around on SW). The plan, as any plan, though has undergone revision and improvement and those things are no longer free alas. Oh well - pastrami is free and even more tasty then Corned beef in my opinion, and i've learnt to cook my own chilli.

    I too remember the days of eating everything out of a can... I lost 3 stone and it was all very convenient, but the weight crept back on! I do think its better now... I really feel like I am eating healthy, fresh food.

    That said... I would love some corned beef hash!

    Sadly, I remember the corned beef too :( Quiche was very popular in our house then!
    I never had the privilidge of experiencing the mac cheese though I do remember the Heinz one being free along with ravioli.
    I can also remember when you had to syn fruit (a medium apple used to be 3 syns) or you would have it as a HeB, but that is going wayyyyyy back!

    Yes I remember this was when I first joined sw back in 2003 and I lost 2 and half stone. I loved it, and guess what I still have the food directory and original sin free recipes book from then. I have just dug them out and am now wondering what would happen if I followed it again. Corn beef quiche, corn beef bake and macaroni cheese pie were my favorites. Uummmm loverly.
