  Buttery update  -   Dont normally go to Cognito,St swithin st for coffee,but the usual joint was closed so went in for our morning break.Wifie said she got her rowies from the Breadmaker,Rosemount which I'm a fan of.She heated them up in a panini press rather than grill or toaster.
  Affa fine,noticed the difference.Melted butter on a slightly crispy and flaky buttery.Rather good coffe too.

 Will relay any further important developments

St. Swithin Street you say.

Shame you can't nip into Spar to see Mathew nowadays.

 Dont know if he fully recovered from his near impalement by a box of crunchy nut cornflakes .
   Did he not reappear in Torry Spar at a later date or was that someone else?

Not buttery but bakery-related. Was in the new Lidl yesterday. In Tullos. Not only were the prices (for everything) so excellent, their bread counter was superb. We only eat bread at weekends but when we do, we want it to be good.

Lidl can be a'right but you really need to get yourself down to The Bread Maker on a Friday if you insist on your weekend rule.

Then up the the cheese shop on Rosemount Place.

That's the weekend sorted.

There's even still an Oddbins if you insist on paying too much for your wine.

Went into the Bread Maker for the first time this morning in fact. Pancakes, Bacon and Maple Syrup hit the spot.

For wine, got a bottle of Puglia Primitivo from Lidl for cheap as chips. One of the best wines I've tasted for ages at any price.

There's a new buttery which now tops the lot.

Made by a resident of Crathie (beside Balmoral) they used to sell them on a help yourself basis at the side of the road, coupled with an honesty box.

As was to be expected when non Deesiders come across such novelties of modern day transactions, this was abused, robbed and is now defunct..

Donsiders shouldn't be allowed out.

Anyway...not to stray from the point, this enterprise has gone from strength to strength and delivers butteries all over the place.

Can't remember the name of the small company, but you'll agree with my synopsis should you come across them

Handy Tip: Stick in toaster until very slightly burnt. Allow to cool and adorn with liberal helping of proper old fashioned fully salted butter.

My toaster sadly wouldn't fit you in


If I pronged you with a garden fork and held you over a bonfire would that suffice?
