What's new this week?!

Hi everyone!

Recent news reports about the safety of chickens sold in supermarkets raised concerns at CCC HQ as I'm sure it did with all of you! Buying chicken at the butchers may seem expensive but what about the quality? I set myself a "Chicken Challenge!" & was pleasantly surprised with the results! To see what I'm talking about click here!  It was a thoroughly enjoyable experiment, it's just as well we like chicken!

Take care

Love Sarah xxxxx
