If there's one thing I've always said, it's that you shouldn't bury your head in the sand and ignore the bargains at Lidl...

Ostrich Steaks
Personally I have a policy of not eating anything you're likely to see on safari, but I'm sure there are plenty of people happy to spend £5.49 on some frozen ostrich steaks. Admittedly, they're out of the price range of most Lidl shoppers, but that's not a problem because they can always nick them.

I'm generally a class above Lidl, of course, and consider myself much more of an Asda Smart Price man, but I was forced to cross to the other side of the tracks last night because Asda had sold out of aubergines. And Lisa said she needed them for a new recipe. Which to be honest, scares me more than the thought of going to Lidl after 9pm. I'm concerned I might be only hours away from moussaka muffins.

Having successfully picked up the aubergines (and then put them back down and found some a little less manky), I spotted a sign saying 'Deluxe Easter' and a load of frozen ostrich. I've never liked chicks that are taller than me, but I was tempted to buy some for Amelie and tell her it's Big Bird from Sesame Street. In the end though, I decided that at more than five quid a box, I should probably leave it until today, when I'll know how much money I've made from the Scottish Grand National, and be able to make a more informed financial decision.

The race finished half an hour ago. And it'll be Smart Price sausages from here on in.

We went to Lidl when away on holiday and I'm sure they didn't have frozen ostrich.  Are you sure you weren't de-hydrated and experiencing mirages?

Who said the Germans dont have a sense of humour? These are part of Lidl Comedy meat products
I agree that five and a half quid for these Bernie Clifton steaks is a bit steep. You want to watch out for the Rod Hull ones...
Emus, now thats the forward

It is an urban (actually probably a rural) myth that ostriches bury their heads in the sand.  They would suffocate.
