Regular readers will know that we’re big fans of M&S’s fantastic dine in for two offer. Yesterday, I picked up the main, side, dessert, and bottle of wine for just €12.50, a saving of €12.96.
My dinner, the Cook Menu Chicken and Wiltshire Ham Pie, wasn’t the nicest meal I’ve ever had in M&S. No, it was one of the nicest meals I’ve ever had in my life, and certainly the best ready meal I’ve ever eaten. Now, I’d had a hankering for a good pastry-topped chicken pie for quite a while, but this really exceeded expectations: lots of creamy white wine sauce, perfectly textured and flavoured pastry, and a generous filling. It went down a treat with M&S Ultimate Mash, which I topped with more butter, and some plain steamed broccoli. There was only one thing for it: go back to M&S for another pie.
I followed up with the lemon tart. This was so good that, on my second trip to M&S, I strolled right past those slutty Melting Middle Chocolate Puddings. They were practically throwing themselves at me; it was embarrassing.
Have you tried anything from M&S this weekend? Quick: before it ends, any recommendations?
