What are you buying/have bought Black Friday?

Moi,? Not buying anything. Skint, horns withdrawn.

What are you buying... have you bought?

The day after Thanksgiving in USA. Presumably the day everyone stays home to recover resulting in a dearth of shoppers, which the US economy has bigged up as a day on which you just HAVE to go to the shops because the bargains are HUGE. An idea very quickly adopted by lesser economies in the Western World with a similar penchant for making a quick buck or several quick bucks.

Sometimes genuine bargains are available, but more often, unwanted, outdated, unreliable tat purporting to be the hottest deal of the year. Go figure!

It is another fad from the USA that has come over here.

The last Friday of November when shops and companies try to get rid of all the tat that they can't sell normally and so offer it at big discounts to get the gulible to fight over it, even though they don't actually want or need it.

Well tomorrow is Friday

And regardless of what I cook I always do a large salad, boiled eggs , olives , feta cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, peppers ect

Albert bakes a loaf

And it all is demolished

Then they start on the meal

As the saying goes Aldra,rather feed you lot for a week than a Fortnight. But that salad sounds delicious.
