    one thing I have learnt with age and with much constructive criticism from wise people like Grockle 

    Hmm, obviously our versions of constructive criticism differ.

    Quote
    Never set out to destroy your opponent and silence in an argument so often implies strength rather than weakness.

    I am assuming the "LOL"(Laugh Out Loud) quote was ignored then, as my last post was a light-hearted one.


    Quote
    Amunette you really are becoming a bit of an irritant. Please try  not to be so rude  and controversial.

    Read above comment. I did say LOL, it was lighthearted, not meant to be controversial at all.

    From experience, never ever take on Edward Bear on culinary matters. He will eat you alive, quite literally.

    I'll take your word for it. But as I cook for a living, I think I could probably give him a run for his money  :)

  • How is it on this site that when someone asks a simple question or tries to promote something good about Los Gigs it turns into a slanging match. It beggars belief. The shop selling the Iceland products is very good as is Country Garden that also sell lots of their products. Some of us here have to live on our own and some of these products are very useful. It is not much fun cooking for ONE. However I do cook in batches about once a month for the freezer and a lot of the produce I use Sylvia gets for me from Iceland and it is good quality. The owner of the mini market in the Arcade is a very nice man and is very helpful when you go in. He will try to get you anything you need as does Sylvia in Country Garden.  Lets promote these nice people and their businesses for the prosperity of Los Gigs.

  • No-one was saying the people selling the stuff were not nice, just the products!! As for cooking for one, at least you get to eat what you want, not have to compromise for others tastes :)

    I just think it is quicker and easier to prepare from fresh, that's all.

    Lovely idea, and I wish them well, I truely do, but as for LG, I fear it is beyond hope unless drastic measures are taken, and by drastic I do not mean shops selling a few frozen pies and ready meals . It needs a total overhaul, starting from the marina. It is a beatiful location, with access to wonderful sights, but it is dying rapidly.

    Not married. As for your charming comments, I feel they are totally unnecessary and very rude. There is not need for such nastiness on this, or any forum. As has been said, we are all entitled to an opinion, and are free to voice it. I may not say what people like, but I am not hostile or downright spiteful about it., unlike yourself.

    Not at the moment, mainly due to the horrendous financial climate. But as we will be moving back, we obviously have an interest in things being better by then. We also have family on both sides who live and work in LG and the area.

    No I do not. I reply to anything I feel I want to. Who are you, or anyone else, to say when a thread is finished?  Both you and Freddy have once again shown the cliquey mentallity of some people who feel they "own" LG. Many, many forums exist that are dedicated to subjects people have no direct link with. Are we only alowed to comments on the place we actually live in and the things we physically do? How boring and plain silly an idea.

    Umm, Iceland, apparently, plus a couple of shops in LG ;D I still question the use of nice and frozen in the same comment, despite the rudness of previous small minded postersl :)

    A lot of money has been allocated to improve the area from Los Gigantes to Playa Arena.  The full story will be on the news in a day or so.

  • Flippin eck...  The original comment was to inform of products available to everyone, your choice, if you do or you don't.

    Again, it turns this chat into something else.

    If potential visitors use this to gauge whether or not its an area they would like to visit, this type of chat is going to point them to another island, even another country.

    I love visiting the place and am glad to hear from Dolly that plans are afoot to upgrade the area.  You lucky people that already live there and us mere mortals that only visit occasionally need to spread the word that its a great place, not one of tickle tackle.   

    Also as a visitor to your area I personally prefer to eat out and use the local restaurants to support the area.  Roll on December. xx  ;)

    Oh come on, without the differences of opinion this thread would have been about 3 replies long, all saying "oh, how nice". Is that what this place is supposed to be now, an "agree with everything to keep people happy" board?

    Yes, I agree. The mindless nastiness on this thread is uncalled for and shows LG and its residents in a very bad light.

    I think it is not so much tittle-tattle that is the worry, it is the blatant nastiness to anyone who is not "from LG" voicing an opinion. It hardly shows a welcoming feeling to anyone thinking of visiting. Poor things would be scared to open their mouths or say anything negative for fear of being run out of town by some vigilante local Brit !!!!

  • Dear blue,

    Weather fine, area quiet. Don't know where all the people have gone? (Probably all at home slaving over hot stoves cooking with fresh ingredients?)
    It is good to have you back with us and you'll have to be double extra careful not to end up as a bored mutant if you are finding this time of year too quiet for you.
    With you and amunette forming a Gang of Two we had better watch out - you'll be wanting sebastian back next !!!!

    Gone slightly off topic now but this is about the most active current thread and started simply as a helpful post for people wanting to buy Iceland food.
    I don't think tempers have been too frayed but one or two opinions have varied.

    End of my postcard, grockle

  • Thanks grockle,I think Iceland ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!
    Don't really care one way or another about others opinions.
    One does what one has too.
    if we had an M & S i'd try that if we had an Asda I'd try that too...I'm not fussed at all as long as I can eat it..
    The guy in the arcade is doing his best to cater for everyone,so good for him.
    Frozen foos is not for everyone but.................................Tunnocks Caramel Wafers are...........I LOVE YOU TUNNOCKS  :-* :-* :-*

  • Thanks Blue, I don't mean to stir things up, honest, but I just cannot go along with an idea/opinion if I truely do not agree with it, just to keep the majority happy!! 

    I am all for supporting local stores, but why not start by promoting local fresh Canarian produce instead of overpriced imported stuff, that is all. Why do Brits feel the need to have everything like back in the UK?!! The newspapers, food, tv etc, all got to be British. Spanish products are readily available, just as tasty, and locally produced in many cases.

    As for "slaving over hot stoves cooking with fresh ingredients?", no way, cooking from fresh is not slaving, its easy with just a little practice :) In the time it takes to cook a frozen pie, you can make fresh. In my job, we make from scratch, food for 200+ a day. Pies, lasagne, casseroles, roasts etc, plus snack items like quiche, salad bar. Also puddings, cookies, cupcakes, all fresh daily. It is not hard, and once you go back to fresh, frozen is not even a close second, it's a completely different food group!!!

  • I agree with all those who say cooking with fresh ingredients is best for taste and health. I also agree that it's not necessarily a laborious or time-consuming chiore so most of the meals I prepare are done this way.

    However, there are the odd occasions when I get home from work very late or perhaps don't feel too good when I am very, very glad to find a couple of microwaveable ready meals in the freezer.

     :D :D :D :D

    Whoooooooosh!!!!(sound of point being made flying straight over your head magsnmike)   The point was, if it is managable to cook fresh for that many daily, people cooking for 1, 2 or a few should find it a doddle!!
