lol at geocentric grin

YABU.....why on earth would you expect that?

and why do you think you've been had because it came from Brazil? Are English chickens more superior than Brazilian Chickens?

If they didn't have chicken in I could see why you night be miffed!

Geocentric Fri 29-May-09 14:16:26

I am 1970's vintage british spiced ham.

Somewhat past my sell-by date grin

I'm not being racist you know!

most ready meals contain meat that is swept off the floor


Geocentric Fri 29-May-09 14:36:33

I know, Boobalina, I was just putting things into perspective. And anyway, they're chikens, don't think racism applies smile

Geocentric Fri 29-May-09 14:36:50

chickens, even

LovelyTinOfSpam Fri 29-May-09 14:37:14

Mmmmm yum. Sweepings grin

Boobalina Fri 29-May-09 14:39:14

It is questionable meat, and Brazilan to boot.

Am going back to Waitrose chicken bites I fancy.

Fuck, my life is exciting....

LovelyTinOfSpam Fri 29-May-09 14:40:20

Why is it questionable meat though?

Recommend hot-footing it back to waitrose though grin

Oliveoil Fri 29-May-09 14:42:47

make your own?

chop up chicken breast, roll in egg, dip into flour with has pepper, garlic powder and paprika in (and salt depending on age of sprog)

cook for about 15 mins at 200

tis in the Dinner Lady Cook Book

I used to make tons and freeze them

or you can mince the chicken but I wanted mine to get used to proper meat after a while and not mush

Geocentric Fri 29-May-09 14:42:51

I tried making my own chicken bites out of organic chicken lovingly minced at home a la AK - my horrid darling angels refused to eat it.

musicposy Fri 29-May-09 14:45:12

I would object, not because I think foreign meat is in any way inferior (I very much doubt that, given the standards many of our animals are kept in) but because what's the point of racking up all those food miles?

The environmental impact would be enough to make me head to waitrose.

Boobalina Fri 29-May-09 14:45:24

Yes have made own in past and still do, but these are handy when in a hurry.

Meat was questionable as it was all bubbly - ie mashed up.

Do you think Jamie Oliver knows about this?!

Oliveoil Fri 29-May-09 14:58:24

I made my own fishfingers once and they weren't eaten either, cheeky feckers

M&S nuggets have some sort of weird HOLE/GAP thing in the middle shock I cooked them and then threw them away, they looked like somethting from the ELC kitchen set

I was horrified to read the country of origin on a tin of M&S chicken meal was Brazil - surely in this economic climate they should be supporting UK farmers and giving the customer food produced in the UK not producing it in Brazil and supporting farmers from another country...

How many of us will have eaten this without looking at the small print on the tin - I'm sure most of their customers would prefer they produced it in the uk ?

`Read the packet, and if you don't like it, don't buy it. Not that hard really is it?

mayorquimby Tue 28-Jul-09 12:02:52

i also don't get the argument that they should be supporting local farmers etc. they're a business, they'll do whatever is most cost effective and makes them the most profit.
it is up to customers to force them to change their purchasing policies by paying the bit extra to shops which do support local farmers and making it in the largfer chains interests to buy locally, if that's what you want.

it often happens that a customer will see two products and buy the cheaper one over the british one, but then complain about large chains not supporting local economies.
