Just bought some diced Reindeer from Lidl. Father Christmas may be a little slow this year.

Excellent meat,we had Reindeer for Christmas lunch last year.

The company I work for recently relocated, and there's a Lidl right next door. Always worth a look to see what they've got. The first time I went inside a one of their shops, I found trumpets, edible underwear and loudspeaker cable. I didn't buy any of them, but you never know what you'll find.

 

Their leaflet said they'd have goose, but there wasn't any. Maybe it'll be there nearer Christmas, or maybe, as it's a small branch, I will have to visit a bigger one for that. Being a German company, their chocolate-coated gingerbread is very nice indeed.

Tescos down my way sell packs of Mixed mutton and lamb mince in half kilo packs for £2. For all I know it could be 99% mutton as it doesnt give an approximate breakdown, either way it makes a great shepards pie / mutton keema

Lidl is unfairly derided. Much of their 'continental' fare is excellent!

Lidl and aldi are brilliant shops

I buy olive oil, fresh fruit and veg, cheese, charcuterie, hand tools, all sorts, you can't go wrong

In Meanwood there is an ALDI and a waitrose within 50 yards of each other you see the same people in ALDI as you see in Waitrose

Agree, and I wish I had one a bit closer. Love browsing and seeing something a bit different on the shelf in these shops, so much better than the mundane selection in Tesco and it's ilk.

I casseroled the reindeer and it was very nice indeed. Unlike the "diced" game you get in many shops, these were good-sized chunks (about an inch cubed), not random offcuts.

I found some on the "going cheap" section
(That's what we call it- has anyone a better name for it?)
I cooked off most of the fat and added some mint, onion and egg plus seasoning and made burgers.
Not the most exciting recipe but they were nice.

At Asda they call the reduced to clear items "whoopsies", FFS!

 

 

Does anyone know where I can get small bottles or tasters of liquers? (besides shots at a bar or pub)

 

For my new things to try next year I've concocted a list of booze I've never tried including; kirsch, benedictine, sloe gin and limoncello; but I don't need a whole bottle of the stuff.

 

If the best and easiest solution is a well-stocked bar or pub then anyone any recommendations in the Bradford/Brighouse area?

There are a few websites that do miniatures.  Mr Benson, once of this parish, had them at his wedding instead of the usual lame favours. 

 

A quick google should see you sorted.

I had raw beef pressed/minced beef at breakfast this morning in my hotel in the Netherlands (I'm on tour, with my band).  It was lovely with a bit of sliced tomato.

What band is that then? and where abouts in the Netherlands? I've never seen that in the Hague. Maybe that's because I have my bacon and egss blinkers on though.

I don't like to talk about my band on the forum, I've sent you a PM.

 

I stayed near Utrecht last night in one of the big international chains, but this is available in pretty much all of the Dutch based Van Der Walk hotels too from what I've seen.

That's Steak Tartare, didn't you have the raw egg on it?
I used to have it a lot in France.

If you can get past the raw egg texture, it's damn tasty. Although it should be chopped, rather than minced.

Yet you mention it quite a lot.I see quite a few bands,it would be interesting to see and hear yours.
