#Morrisonsmum Bank Holiday Shop!

Bank holidays are pretty awesome. An extra day to lie in (LOL!), have a bit of a hangover, that sort of thing. Usually on a bank holiday weekend we try to plan our time carefully, maybe a weekend away, a party, a walk in the country - this year it coincided with Son 1's birthday, so we decided to make a bit of a day of it.

And wouldn't you believe it! As luck would have it I was chosen to be a #Morrisonsmum and have a little mosey round Morrisons to take a look at their new cheaper prices and to buy everything I need for an awesome family BBQ. Fun! I've always liked Morrisons as I think their meat and bread products are second to none. There are LOADS of Morrisons around here, mainly because we live near their HQ in Bradford (an invite would be nice Morrisons HQ!) and there is a REALLY nice store nearby in Guiseley that has the world's busiest supermarket cafe, so I'm well versed in the ways of Morrisons. Morrisons work with farmers to get the highest quality ingredients, and I think it really shows in their end product.

Now Morrisons have raised the bar again by promising to lower prices even more! Wherever you see a yellow sticker like this...





....so you can be sure the price is cheaper than any other supermarket, not just matched!

So here's some piccies of our shopping trip and some bargains we found!

3 sets of BBQ meat for £20, bargain!






No BBQ would be complete without some boozerino, and Morrisons have a fab selection, I liked this selection of bubbly, and half price champers, what's not to like!?

Our neighbour Paul (hello Paul!) put us onto this awesome French lager, it's low in alcohol and is great for a summer's day.
French Lager, bargain at £3.45


You can't see it in this picture so much, but one of the things I love about Morrisons is the steamy salad stuff, either way this is a bargain and good quality salad too!

Lovely garden stuff.
Since we're doing our garden up, I stocked up on some fun seeds, bird boxes, pots, that sort of thing.
Anyway, here's our looty (or is it booty?) when we got home.... all ready for dining al fresco!

oh and there's a haribo cake there for my son's birthday.

If you really want to impress when you're entertaining, consider my lovely little tip of smoked salmon bites!

  • Melba Toast (99p)
  • Cream cheese (choose brand own rather than Philadelphia, tastes the same and it's cheaper!) (£1)
  • Smoked Salmon (£3.49)
I made 16 smoked salmon bites which worked out at 35p a portion, bargain! Here's the finished result, pop on some cracked pepper for the full effect.

The quality of the smoked salmon was amazing, especially considering the price, I was super impressed.

Enjoying the scran.
I also made a potato salad but I am too embarrassed to put it on here as it does not look good.

Having a lovely BBQ with all those wonderful ingredients really put me in mind for the Summer ahead and I'm looking forward to more BBQs courtesy of our local Morrisons!

Disclosure

Morrisons have cut prices on over a thousand products and where you see a yellow marker in store and online which says the item is cheaper, you can be sure it is staying cheaper! They are cutting prices and not corners. I was sent gift vouchers from Morrisons to enable me to shop for this meal and produce this blog post though all opinions are my own.
