    Sandwich Week – How do you like yours?!

    Sandwich Week – How do you like yours?!

    Toasted, open or Scooby-Doo style, there are endless ways to enjoy sandwiches and as 16th-22nd May is Sandwich Week there really is no excuse not to make your favourite! 

    Here are some thoughts about the nation’s classic packed lunch for you to consider whilst you eat yours…

    • Sausage sandwich – brown or red sauce?
    • Is an open sandwich just a topping on raw toast?
    • White or brown bread?
    • Do you butter?
    • Should tomato ever be allowed in a sandwich?
    • Bap/roll/breadcake/other?
    • Can you ever eat a toasted sandwich and not burn your mouth?

    And of course the most important one of all:

    • Why do triangle sandwiches always taste better?!

    Use your loaf!

    Use your loaf!

    Is there anyone left who didn’t have a go at making bread of some kind over lockdown?!

    Many of us have come away simply appreciating the skills of bakers more, but there are also those of us who now can’t resist the smell of a fresh loaf in the oven and the joy of knowing we have baked it ourselves.

    As the UK is gradually emerging from lockdown once more and eating outdoors is becoming the new fine dining, putting together a meal can require a bit more planning and a bit more carrying!

    Our bread wraps are perfect for keeping your freshly baked loaf safe, carrying a family load of sandwiches or wrapping round a bowl of something delicious to keep bugs and picky fingers out. With a wipeable, food safe lining and velcro fastening they are super easy to use and keep clean.

    We know the bread makers amongst you will have your favourite recipes, but we’ve found this selection which has a variety of options…

    Poppy’s bread wrap is often used to protect her sharing bowl of potato salad. The recipe is so secret we couldn’t get it out of her, but here are a few alternatives that look pretty delicious...

    Bathing Beauties

    With the new bathing beauties design added to our range for 2014 we felt it only right that we should make like a bathing beauty and have our first dip of the year. Various members of Team Treffry have been heading to the swimming pool every Wednesday lunchtime for a few lengths but with the pool being closed temporarily we decided there was nothing quite like a bracing dip in the atlantic, in April! poppy Treffry Catalogue shot of our new tea towel design

    Trouble was, the day we decided we might go for a swim the following day was warm and Spring like and when the allotted swim day arrived it was a proper cold, Cornish grey and mizzly day! A quick facebook and twitter poll decided it though, more people said we should than said we shouldn't! And after nearly chickening out we found ourselves on the prom in Penzance changing into our swimming things in the persistent drizzle, lovely!

    But guess what, it was great, refreshing, rejuvenating, life affirming, and really, really cold!!! We only managed about 5 minutes and getting changed afterwards wasn't a whole heap of fun (especially as a couple of coats had found their ways into puddles!) but we all felt good afterwards and ready to do it again next week! bathing beauties bathing beauties.

    We reckon this lot might be swimming on the french riviera in summer rather than off the prom in Penzance in April, we certainly weren't looking quite this chic!! Let us know about your bathing beauty experiences!
