A WI lunch and some Basics finds, what to do with them?

Am pretty tired right now. It is the annual Resolutions lunch at the WI tomorrow. It can be one of the duller meetings, so we provide a lunch to lure members into attending. The ploy works well 😉

So I have spent today shopping for and cooking 36 portions of shepherds pie

And the same number of Muscovado cheesecake, in the little Gu dishes that I collected earlier in the year.

Whilst in Sainsbugs, I noticed these items from the basics range, so I got them to see what I can do with them, other than the obvious.

The burgers were £1.15 for 8, the fish fingers 60p for 10 and the cheese spread 50p.

I’ve ‘tested’ the cheese spread, and it tastes just like Dairylea triangles. So first thoughts are in a toasted sandwich, in some kind of pasta sauce, as a jacket potato topping and stuffed inside a chicken fillet. It brings to mind a real retro treat that I used to enjoy as a child. Celery sticks stuffed with this kind of spread and cut into slices of about 1″.

Any thoughts on what to with these?
