In the shops now! #1: El vino for the terminally lazy
I understand we all lead busy lives. I also recognise that plenty of people can't cook or indeed, won't cook. So there's a big market for ready meals and I get it. Already mashed potato? Not sure about that, because mashed potato is very easy to make very well, but again some people don't want to learn. Pre-grated cheese? Sorry, but you're just fucking lazy. Get back to me with your justification for preferring to hand over a ridiculous mark-up on the lowest quality cheese in the shop, and I'll call you a twat to your face.
It's in this vein of utterly nonsensical grocery produce that I introduce my latest find at Sainsbury's: pre-poured wine - for people who simply can't manage the effort of pouring it themselves:
I'm trying to create a scenario where I'd a) want to share a Tom Thumb-sized measure of wine with another person, and b) buy glassware that's intended to be disposable.
The only situation I can think of is either a picnic or while away camping, but in both cases you'd it'd be cheaper to buy a bottle of wine, it'd be more convenient to buy a wine you prefer of restricting your choice to just one Merlot, and you wouldn't want to be serving it up in glassware anyway. And even if you did, if you were prepared enough pack a picnic or a tent, you'd certainly be prepared enough to pack glasses.
I'm so angry I could punch a nun. What's the point? Please, somebody? What. Is. The. Point?
