Have a look at the Aldi catalogue/web site, I was pleasantly surprised.
Cheers

any lamb that is on offer as you say will not be uk lamb,we don't eat lamb at this time of year it will be older lamb.and have a ram taste to it,as we don't like that we don't but it.

I think older lamb is lovely, either Hoggit or Mutton but unless I order a half/whole lamb from the farm shop, it is very difficult to get hold of.
At this time of year there is no room in the freezer for that  ::)  :lol:

I nworked on a sheep farm for 13yrs,may be thats why i hate the smell and the sight of sheep and lamb :lol:,
But when you do get a nice piece of lamb there is nothing better.

Not meat-specific, but Waitrose have been handing out 20% off vouchers like nobody's business recently!

Eight quid for every forty notes isn't a deal to be sneezed at, especially as a turkey crown is 26.00 and we still need another bottle of Scotch...

I'm afraid Tesco shot their bolt this year, asking for a spend of 60.00 each week, which is impossible for just two of us!

Mind you, I got a huge hug from two of the girls in Tesco today, and will be coming down from the ceiling in an hour or two..;0)

(Yeah, yeah, Mrs Growster was with me so don't panic..;0)
