Condensed Milk Rolls

These condensed milk rolls are sweet and best suited to toppings that are super salty, or fiery from the heat of chilli. I took some west coast rock lobster, slathered in a Sriracha sauce, and made lobster rolls for dinner on Valentine’s night.

For many years, I purchased our electricity and paid my accounts in-store. But then about a year ago, one of my loyalty cards offered 20 points for each transaction done online. This incentivised me to change and is far more convenient. The first month I completely forgot I had done so, and when I called them they could immediately see what had been paid. Now I know that all amounts reflected as being online purchases with them are in fact third party payments. Last month when buying electricity the transaction failed. They sent me an email confirming that the amount would be credited to my card straight away. But when I did my credit card reconciliation I could see the refund had not been done. I sent an email to them and expected that the process would be a run around. Instead I got an immediate reaction.

I was given three options to choose from. They could process the credit which would take 5 to 7 working days, or I could get a replacement electricity token. The third alternative was a credit on my loyalty card for the same amount. I decided this was the best way to go as it would be the most immediate action. I was told I would have to wait 24 hours for it to reflect which did not bother me. But in fact, it took less than half a day. The best part of this is that I didn’t have to remember to use the refund as it was automatically applied at the till when I made purchases. And as I shop with them on a weekly basis, it was soon used up. This is excellent customer service which should be the norm, and not the exception.
