to be fuming at this substition suggested by supermarket staff?

(78 Posts)

I sent DD2 into Lidl to get feta for supper.

They didn't have any and so she stood there looking perplexed.

The assistant asked if she could help? DD" explained the situationa nd came out clutching mozzarella.

Who on earth suggests that as an adequate replacement for Feta?

Am I Brieing Unreasonable?

Cheddar complain?

Oh dear.

There is no adequate substitution for feta. Apart from maybe Haloumi, at a push.

What was it for?

You need to go Caerphilly with substitutions, especially when following a recipe.
