I have done quite a lot of travelling since retiring, some just for relaxation and some to research. Bulgaria, France, Spain, Portugal, many of the Greek islands, Malta, Morocco. My wife has always been keen on trying foreign food whereas I am very old fashioned in what I prefer to eat. In Greece she has tried many of their dishes, I kept to egg and chips, In Spain she's tried Tapas and Paella, I kept to burgers and chips. And so on. I do all the cooking at home and I think it is probably that I like to know how fresh the food is that I use and how well cooked it is. I'm always wary of how clean and spotless kitchens are abroad and of course how clean the people preparing our food is. I wonder if I'm on my own here or are there others like me?
Hi there wonder if anyone can recommend a ready meals delivery service...have looked at several and finally put an order in with COOK...reviews are fair but not brilliant so I will hope for the best...I really do want good food and am not sure how to go about it as I used to cook but cannot now...If you have used a delivery of frozen meals and they were good I would love to hear from you...

What are your opinions about vegans and veganism?
Almost everyone loves a cup of coffee. So how do you make yours? Do you percolate, or filter? Or have you opted for a machine? My daughter bought me a Tassimo for Christmas a few years ago. Lovely coffee but the choice is limited in most supermarkets. And it is quite expensive. So recently we opted for a Nespresso. Complete with a milk frother. Lots of choice and it does come a lot cheaper per cup than the Tassimo.
Since before the Second World War Cadbury’s Roses have had twist foil wrappers – but from today, Cadbury’s are ditching the twist style and they will be replaced with a modern “flow wrap” design.
Fans are already up in arms over the re-design and one Roses fan tweeted: “Nooooooo! Is nothing sacred?”. First they changed the recipe of the Cadbury’s Creme Egg at Easter and now this!
The famous foil wrappers, which are undone by millions of happy families each year, are to be binned in favour of a more modern design which seal closed like most chocolate bars.
A Cadbury spokesman said: “In 2014, the number one complaint on Cadbury Roses was chocolates becoming unwrapped in the box and affecting the other chocolate flavours.”
Equally worrying for Roses addicts is the ever-shrinking tub which will now be smaller than ever before – after the brand’s US owners chose to shrink the tub of chocolates for the fourth time in four years, from 975g to 729g with the same RRP.
Are you a Cadbury’s Roses fan? How do you feel about the new modern wrapper design? Have you ever had an unwrapped sweet in your tub? Will you feel disappointed now you’ll miss out on the spontaneity of unwrapping a twist sweet covering? Do you feel cheated about the shrinking tub size?
