Blog: Any old iron…

Catherine Sleep | 10 September 2004

My husband’s oldest pal is getting married tomorrow, so we took responsibility for adorning the wedding car with a string of tin cans, in time-honoured fashion. The noise they make is traditionally believed to avert evil spirits, which of course we all know is rubbish, but hey ho, tradition is tradition, the best man has to show willing and all that.

So, having left it to the last minute and failed to save up cans, I did a mercy dash to Tesco yesterday to buy 15 cans of their cheapest food. Know what it was? Spaghetti in tomato sauce, at the bargain bucket price of eight pence per can.

Must be a loss leader, I suppose. We felt terrible throwing it away , so ate one can for supper – it wasn’t as awful as I’d recalled. I can’t imagine what we’re going to do with the other 14 cans worth of it, which is now sitting in the fridge decanted into pyrex dishes. Any suggestions?
