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...
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.
