    Enormous out of town retail parks and Internet shopping would be my bogey man.

    I'm not going to defend them, but there are occasions when I'm pleased they exist. Do you and other farmers hold the same view about Burger King, Five Guys etc?

    Wow, some operation and clearly bent on hiding it's cash. Although it's the profit from the raw product that's going offshore is it not? McD's itself will surely be sending Rishi a ton of VAT and employers NI and paying huge amounts in rates? Keeps a few in employment too.

    My plant based cutlets are going in to the water bath for the next couple of hours 😁 Every little helps!

    In my eyes there are far more cafés and food places around these days than ever, it's the rest of the traditional High St occupants that have been decimated. Didn’t McD's just displace Wimpy?

    I think I get part of what you are saying; you'd like more 'cottage industry' abattoirs to service local demand, reducing food miles? Not going to pretend to understand the link with McD's though, or do they also own abattoirs?

    How so? I've been out working at the same time as Easeoff posted and McD was the only place open to get something hot to eat. I thought they supported British farmers? Do you sell direct to the public?

    You're missing a trick; just before the top slice lands, you need to slip in a nice slice of extra mature cheddar ;)

    Third primary Covid jab for immunosuppressed (NOT booster)

    Same as you had originally, or have they done a mix? Will you be tested for antibodies prior to a booster?

    I'm not sure the shape of it matters to the vegetarian, but if you are dishing it up to others then having a familiar shape or wrapper (pastry) makes it easier for them to give it a go.

    Leading on then, tonight's question: Do any of you lot consciously have meat free days? I'm not talking getting in late and throwing a tin of beans or poached eggs on some toast because of time constraints, are you making meat free changes to your diet on health criteria?

    Well, that post from Tesco that popped up on my feed last night, which prompted my slightly tipsy ramblings, has led me to read about the nutrients that are in pork, so tomorrow I'm having a couple of nice pork cutlets (y)
