A warm giffgaffer welcome to our new "Foodie fans" thread. The purpose of this thread is to enable everyone to share recipes, bargains when food shopping & to share anything food related all in one place.

Just to let you know the original thread (Wonderful Lunches And Dinners), had over 66,812 posts so a special mention goes to our very good friend @clinteastwood43 for all his hard work over the years.

Over the last few days myself and @paul_d_(giffgaff educator) have been working together to sort out some thread etiquette for our new thread & we came up with the following:


  1. Wherever possible please try to keep to one post if possible.
  2. Please try to limit @mentions to members who have replied to your post. Single mentions are personal while mentioning a group can feel exclusionary. Please note that you will receive a notification of each post if you subscribe to the thread. Simply click or press on the 3 dots at the top right of the page & select "subscribe".
  3. If possible please post small pictures only as this will assist members to view the posts on this thread without having to scroll loads on a mobile device.

We are hoping that we can all adhere to these thread guidelines ro keep our thread inclusive for all & open for a long time to come.


If you have any suggestions on how to make this thread even better then please PM me at any time HERE


Thanks for your cooperation.

Sounds good @kayden16 as I'm sure there are many many foodies on GD. 

A good tip from the Co-op. They mark food down throughout the day, but at 7pm they mark all 'marked down' products to 90% off. Best time to grab yourself a Co-op bargain. 😀

So just to be perfectly clear @kayden16 we can just mention one person, and as long as it is to do with food it is ok, but not like this is what I had for breakfast etc? 

Can we post photos of what we have cooked then? Sorry, I just want to get it right 🤗

The way i read it @frenchielove is that if a person has posted then we can answer them with @ , I think that paul doesnt want us to mention half a dozen like we normally do , so not sure how that is going to work. Its because of the mentions that we get to see who has posted Smiley Sad
Yes you can pop on and still tell us what you had for B/fast etc then i can come on and mention you. Pics would be great and also ideas on shopping and recipes Smiley Happy
