    Default Look What We Found

    From today, Tesco are stocking the 'Look What We Found' range of meals for 1 each.

    For those not familiar, as ready meals go, they are pretty good, they do not need to be kept in the fridge, and have a shelf life of one year.

    Thanks for the heads up. Been really impressed with them and combined with the quick cook rices it's a decent meal in a few minutes.

    Standard paddling fair for me and the masters G. Mixed in with a quick rice packet and cooked in one pot they make a tasty hot meal nice and fast.

    They also work well with Dol Mio pre cooked pasta sachets.

    As said the portions are small so you need to add pasta/rice/smash
    All the best,

    I'm not a fan of pre packed food, on multiday trips I make my own "instant"porridge, at lunch time I make a snack such as cup a soup mixed with mash and a pepperami sausage chopped up surprisingly filing only needs hot water from a flask and we sort out group evening meals taking it in turn as we go.

    Surely Cuppa soup is a form of pre packed? The quality of these meals is such that you might find they are worth a little more effort.

    There's an FAQ section on their website where they all but say the water used to boil in the bag is safe to drink.

    Boil in the bag, use the water to make smash/rehydrate some noodles and a brew.

    That definitely appeals to my abhorrence of faffing about.

    Yes Al I guess they can be classed as pre packed but as it is one ingredient out of a simple recipe I gleaned from a good book Moveable Feasts, written (if memory serves me correct) by a couple of outdoors people one being a nutritionist. Racing snake .......... I think it is called.
    Magikelly did a review many moons ago.

    The price difference is a winner too ��

    That reminds me of an old hill farmer my dad used to visit for work, he arrived just as the farmer was knocking off for his breakfast so he invited my dad in for a cup of tea. He put a pan of water on the fire to boil and popped in 3 eggs still covered in muck, after they had cooked he made the tea with the water, needless to say it was a quick exit left!!!

    The Look What We Found range is excellent. The food is good and the bags are tough. Boil them in a pad of water with a bag of Uncle Ben's rice for 10 mins for a very easy, plentiful, hot and tasty meal.

    anyone know if LWWF are still in business? I tried them out a few months ago & was quite impressed but when I went to get some more recently for an upcoming camping trip, they seem to disappeared from the supermarkets

    nothing is so clear cut anymore, a 99p store has opened two units down from my local Poundland and a price war has ensued - everything 90p when I last looked.

    the meatballs, some quick cook spaghetti (uses less water or fuel to cook) and some individually packaged small piece of crumbly cheese (regularly 'doggy-bagged' horrible hotel continental breakfast buffet offering) with plenty of black pepper (MacDonald's) - is one of my favourite, cheeky cheep nosebags, cant recommend it enough.

    Another option are the ready meals here http://www.spicesofindia.co.uk/cgi-b...x=0&ACTION.y=0 boil in the bag, add some rice and you have a nice meal.

    Delivery is 4.95 or free for orders over 30.
