    Hoss ...It was the blurst of times...

    The Petrus 6 pack is well worth a go. Some very tasty Belgian sours in there.

    And if anyone is into sparkling wine, then Lidl's Clairette de Die is really good value at £5.99. It's slightly sweet, which I wouldn't normally go for but I bought a bottle by accident and loved it. Immensely quaffable

    I am inappropriately excited by this information.

    Is there such a thing as "inappropriate excitement" where food is concerned? :D

    Well ...went in for some batteries and some fruit .......the cherrys are back ..and lush ....but at £ 6.00 per Kg ....not a steal....

    Came out with an expresso machine ...15 bar ...an utterly random unexpected feeling of loss in aisle 3 over my old morphy richards ..it died ..total impulse buy .........while i was looking at the silvercrest ....it knocks the socks of my Delonghi ....which is too expensive to run ..nice coffee but ...takes 3 capsules per drink to hit primary satifaction point ....a fourth ..if i want it white... more feckin expensive than the machine at work ......lidl do 1.2kg bellaroma dark roast beans xl bag for £8.99.....100% Arabica ....well worth a punt ......once Im out of capsules its back to the attic for that......for sure 20170624_174903.jpg 20170624_174108.jpg

    ...... then some uber bland sushi .......even with the wasbi ..all the soy ....and pickled ginger all over it ...how is it possible to make bland sushi ?....? the skill involved in blandyifing it is utterly olympian...how ? why...?.

    ...and also a rather surprising 2015 Cotes du Rhone @£2.99...whoaaa ... it will be gone by the time that I've posted..... tastes like a £4.99 at the very least ......... .....a defo reapeat buy ...and a summer sangria glugger with all the fruit for sure ...without the twinge of dismay that a good bottle of rioja has been sacrificed ...well tidy

    Steer well clear of the £15 garden forks in Aldi - tines as strong as bananas.
    I hope I can find the receipt.

    It's true, they're shit. I bust mine digging out a cordyline stump about two weeks after I bought it.

    Lidl wine recommendation: I've just tried one called Tulga from the Toro region of Spain. It has an 87 point rating and I can see why. Very nice indeed, and exceptional value at £4.99. As good as most £8 bottles anywhere else IMVHO.

    Aldi have pointy peppers back in stock :)
    For a while I wondered if Tesco had bought up the entire production so they could charge double for them.

    I also much prefer Austin's from Aldi's to the real Pimm's. My local one stopped doing it and I became a real stalker going in there on random forays, coming out with random cookware. It's back in for Wimbledon season :thumbs:.
    Lidls do Jeeves, not as nice imo. Tescos do Summer Cup...pure filth; don't bother.

    Austin's is really nice.

    We got some sports sunglasses with interchangeable lenses (clear, orange and reflective), a pouch to put them in (with little pockets for all the lenses, belt loops and a hook), cleaning cloth and neck chain thing for £4.50!

    Also they now sell free range Blue Eggs which are my favourite hen's eggs ever.

    I bought the Austin's and it's lush. I'm having it with mint from the garden and strawberries.

    Just got back from my local ALDI and they have a load of cleaning products in this week:
    Thursday 27th July - ALDI UK

    Anyone know what the dishwasher tablets and dishwasher salt is like? I've just stocked up on it so am hoping it is ok!

    Also got a few boxes of oven pride a £2.49 a pop as my oven is a bit of a state atm.

    planetgeli There's no future in England's dreaming

    I'll give you something to look for in Lidl. Went today and bought (among other stuff obviously) a doughnut and a cheese twist. Till person rings up 72 doughnuts at £20.88. But hey, with over a £2 discount for multi-buy. 72 is apparently the code for a cheese twist. Only really noticed coz I'd seen the running total just before this which was nearly £20 and she charged me £39.

    That could have been one expensive doughnut. They are lush. But not £20.88 lush.

    I have become obsessed by a fizzy bitter orange drink that Lidl were selling for 35p a can. Trouble is last time I was in they only had a few left. I should have bought them all!!
