Its like those healthy recipes in magazines and endless diet meals in the national daily papers, does anyone actually make them ? because to me again, all the various bean salads, and chicken with 'odd things' tray bakes look as appetising as my dog's dinner, and of course all the weird 101 spices/herbs that are needed - which you might buy, and then never use again in 50 years !!!!
Perhaps its just me. (although I do try making the odd fattening calorie loaded sponge cake !)
Only ever had the Christmas meat hampers and mine always arrived in plenty time and they were always nice quality. Devastating though for the people that didn't get them and it was too late to do Plan B. Won't get this as Mr CC is a bit (a lot) fussy on sausages and burgers and it would probably end up as a hamper for the (already massively spoilt) dog
Many years ago a friend's bassett hound ate a whole partly defrosting leg of pork and had to ring the emergency vet on Boxing day. I think the advice was, stand well back when he starts barfing. And yes he did barf, a lot, but was otherwise unrepentant.

Although I‘m sure that it’s a very tasty selection, it seems rather expensive to me and I, for one, wouldn’t risk a meat order being sent in this hot weather. If the plant fiasco is anything to go by, the couriers would lose it en route.
Sadly I think that QVC know that some will fall for the sales patter..look at the plants yes they sound nice when described by our lovely guest presenters but we have all seen what you actually get and sadly none of them look better than what you would buy is a shop and don't get me going on the cost
