You might have noticed we have recently moved, and that also means that we are still in the process of finding our way around the local area, finding where to get petrol for our car, where to get our late shopping done, and trying take-away places too. As we have moved closer to watford, I have come across Morrisons a few weeks ago, and went shopping there too. It was an OK experience, so when I was asked to review their online service, I was happy to go ahead too.
I have previously tried other brands for online grocery shopping, but I still prefer to get my shopping done in person. There is a reason behind it, I make sure the date on some products does not expire one day after getting the delivery, which happened to me before. Also, you might think I am one of the last mums not shopping with a shopping list sin my hand, but I always know what we need, and often get reminded by seeing things on the shelves.
So how did Morrisons do? What was my experience like?
It actually came at the best time, as we had no food in the fridge after spending the weekend away with family in Belfast, and I had so many deadlines on that Monday, that I just could not spend 1.5 hrs on shopping at my usual supermarket. I was nicely surprised I was able to book the delivery for the following morning, and as it was between 7.30 and 8.30, it was just £1! I think that is as many mums would be doing the school run at that time, but luckily my mum is at home, so it wasn’t a problem for me.
I was sent a voucher code for this review, which was very easily applied after I did my shopping. First you need to register, and then just start shopping. On the first page there were the current special offers, which was very useful. It took me about 20 mins to do my shopping online, which is great. You can also save your shopping list for the next time, which can save time.
- How would you rate the driver’s level of service? I can honestly say it could not have been any better. The driver had pleasant manners, arrived on time, and also carried all the bags into my kitchen.
- How easy was it to sign up to the online service? Again, very easy, took just a few minutes.
- How easy was it to find the products you were after? I found everything I needed, used the search box on top.
- How happy were you with the freshness of the products received? That was the main thing I was interested to see, and can happily say, that all the products were fresh, and did not expire the following morning.
I have found a Chicken and pesto lasagne recipe in the Morisons magazines, and will be cooking a meal for 4 for £10. What a bargain!
Checken and pesto lasagne
serves 4, make it in 40mins, freeze it
3 mixed peppers, quartered, deseeded
12M Savers lasagne sheets
400g diced chicken
500g jar red lasagne sauce
430g white lasagne sauce
30g parmesan, grated
240g mixed leaf salad, to serve
1. Heat the grill to its highest setting and cook the peppers skin-side up for 5 minutes, until charred. Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.
2.Meanwhile, soak the lasagne sheets in boiling water, carefully separating sheets.
3. Place the peppers in a bowl with chicken and red lasagne sauce and stir to coat. Spoon a third of this mixture into an ovenproof dish. Drain the pasta and lay 3 sheets over the chicken layer. Spoon over a third of the white lasagne sauce then drizzle with 1 tbsp of the pesto. Repeat these layers twice more, then sprinkle over the Parmesan. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and the chicken is cooked through. Serve with mixed salad leaves.
Quality of service
I bought some steak and it was cut to my liking, we had the meat last week, and it was amazing. Even daddy realised we had meat from somewhere else, and we agreed we would be buying our meat from Morrisons from now on.
I think shopping online can save time, which is fabulous, and will be doing more often from now on. I was very pleased with my experience.
