Budget Gourmet - Great Blog

I know we're a bargain obsessed bunch so thought I'd highlight "http://www.theskintfoodie.com/". The best, non-nonsense food writing I've come across for ages. Had me in fits. Here's his take on LIDL

"Imagine the manager of our local Lidl, when the early morning delivery arrives, as a kind of Alan Arkin-like figure, just this side of hysteria, gobbling Diazepams like they're Smarties, as the truck door opens to reveal a bewildering mix of moose steaks, scuba gear, whole lobsters, car batteries, sauerkraut and bicycle repair kits. What the feck have those nutters sent me this time?!?! Because, as I'm sure you all know, Lidl is bat-sh1t crazy."

Some great recipe ideas in there too.

I would eat either full stop - full of cancer causing nitrite preservatives

I think you mean you would NOT eat it. Serious "school dinner" ingredients. ;)

I'm not a real chef, like one of my mates is, but I do like to cook, but you can't "cook" with this stuff. :huh:

I like the sound of the chickpea and courgette stew.

I shall email this to my partner who does the cooking.

;)

Shame on you Mark! A Gentleman should familiar with the kitchen! ;)

I bet you get to do the washing up.

You haven't lived if you haven't eaten a nice satisfying, comforting Corned Beef Hash.... ;)

Aye, you made me feel a bit guilty too there Pinny, so I immediately shouted Mrs XYY to come out of ours and show me where it actually is.

Unfortunately she couldn't oblige - seems I haven't made her chain long enough...

Waye Mon! you need an educational trip to Sunderland, to show you how to start being a gentlemun, and then we will see whether you're enough of a gentlemun, for Newcastle, where I don't live any more, BTW! :huh:;)
