I have two recipes coming up where this butterscotch sauce will be part of the ingredients. But, you do not need to wait for them to make this. You can pour it over anything, or keep it in the fridge for days you need something extra sweet.
I don’t do much online shopping in South Africa. Mainly because I like to see what I am buying. And also, I cannot see the point if I can just get what I need in the shops. And recently, my experience has not been that great. But, I do a lot of internet purchasing from UK retailers. My order from Boots seldom changes year in and year out. And as Dave is not a good person to drag around a shop it is much easier. A few years ago I bought amazing thermal gloves and socks from Debenhams. I was hopeful the gloves would fit as we were arriving in winter, and I had nothing suitable at home. I was so glad they were perfect as it was exceptionally cold in Cumbria in February.
So, when I read that Debenhams had gone into liquidation I decided to do some online shopping. It should have been easy as we are 2 hours ahead of the UK. But by the time I finally sat down to browse, I was put into a virtual queue. The time delay was given as 10 minutes, and eventually 30 minutes later I was kicked out of the site. No fear, tomorrow was near, and so I decided to wait for the following day. Eventually I managed to take a look what I could spend my money on. And there was nothing! The sale prices were higher than Marks & Spencer’s normal pricing. And the only thing I saw that grabbed my attention was another pair of gloves. And even though I would love ones that you can keep on and use your phone, they are not a necessity.
