Hello everyone! How was your weekend, any nice wins to report? Just one small one here – a voucher for a 6 pack of Velvet Crunch crisps turned up, which I think was from an Asda competition. No Asda stores here on the Island unfortunately, so will have to wait until we go to the Mainland at the end of the month - yum though! Did you have a nice Valentine’s Day? We didn’t do anything very special here, as it isn’t really one of of our favourite holidays. I did get some lovely flowers though, and we had a delicious homecooked meal all together. The bottle of sparkling rose wine I won went down well too, and hubby enjoyed some of the beers from the case of Morena that I won earlier this year – nice when comping prizes help with celebrations isn’t it!
Half term here this week, do you have little ones home too? I really struggle trying to get all my work done, entertain the kids, cook, clean and fit in some comping too during the holidays. What I struggle with most is trying to make sure we all still eat healthily, even though we are pushed for time and have lots of commitments. We have all been on a health kick since Christmas too, so still trying to keep our resolution to eat well and exercise more regularly.
Did you vow to start eating healthier in 2015 too; well The PrizeFinder may be able to help! Did you know it is National Chip Week this week (16th – 22nd February 2015) - who knew, right? We all love a chip shop tea don’t we, especially at the weekend as it means no washing up and always tastes so good! But we also don’t want to break our resolutions so early in the New Year, so what do we do? For this month’s exclusive The PrizeFinder competition we want to know what you would normally order at your local chip shop, and in return you will be in with a chance of winning a Tower Airwave Low Fat Air Fryer! Air fryers seem to be the latest big thing in kitchen small appliances don’t they, they are everywhere! With this clever bit of kit you will be able to cook heathier, homemade chips, fish, chicken or anything else you fancy without the need for unhealthy oils and fats. What a great way to treat the family to yummy, tasty homemade foods, without all the grease or having to break your resolutions!

I always like, battered sausage, chips and curry sauce. Nothing quite like chip shop curry sauce!
I love to order fish and chips with scraps and mushy peas....but since I've moved to Scotland it's very confusing. Fish and chips is called a fish supper here (regardless of what time you order it), the shops in town have never heard of scraps and I've never seen them do mushy peas...very odd! The fish suppers are very nice though, once you get over the language barrier :)
I always order fish (cod or haddock) chips and mushy peas my favourite treat, we are very lucky to have an award winning fish and chips shop a couple of miles from my home. Their fish and chips taste like I remember them being as a child

Most times I order cod or haddock and chips,although for a nice change I'll have a Big Mac and chips.No,not the burger this is a crispy mackerel fillet served in a salad roll with tartare sauce! This is from a wonderful chippy when I visit Norwich.Delish!
I always order Rock and chips with a wally(gherkin). Takes me back to my childhood,when it was a treat to go to the chippie and get our tea all wrapped up in newspaper.
A treat now and then because of cholesterol, so I go for chips and curry sauce when we're at the caravan.
