I've started using these 'Look what I Found' meals and have so far been impressed. I didn't boil in the bag though, just tipped it into the mess tin, added some rice from a microwaveable pouch and let it warm. Great value and tasty enough.

If you're after boil-in-the-bag bags they're usually available from Lakeland.

Regarding post 21, lakeland boiling bags, used these for a while now and can reccomend them. Work a treat with the heat sealer as well.

The boil in bag meals from Iceland are £2, 400gm and better to be honest. Although sold as a chilled meal the pouches are vac packed and would certainly in my opinion last a good few days out of the fridge; I've left two out of the fridge and will see if the packs 'blow' over the next seven days.
I wish we had an Iceland near here ... or an Indian Deli...or a Polish deli ... or anything other than Tiny Tesco and the Coop....
Not much variety or width of range available here!

They do 300gm vacuum packs of really good quality dry cured bacon for £1. Being vac packed it will last a week unopened without refrigeration; in fact I had four rashers with two Duck eggs for breakfast :)

Rik - which ones are the Asda ones - I can't see them on their website (apart from the tins). Got a name or link for them? Cheers

Is your friend John, free delivery on orders over £30

Lots of BOGOF deals on the boil in the bag, most are 300gm so at 90p a pouch they are VFM (value for money) :) Do a pick and mix and you have 33 boil in the bag meals for £30 delivered.

I just use the microwaveable bags pour in what ever I want roll the ends over and tape them up with masking tape I keep them in my mess tin as they are more fragile than proper boil in the bags. Then When i want to use then I take the tape off make sure the opening is out of the water and boil them up
