Fillet Steaks

Yesterday I bought two Fillet Steaks from Aldi which they've recently been advertising. Pleased to say they were really tender and juicy and at £6+ each, can be thoroughly recommended. Calling in again to buy some more.

Fillet steaks

I have to say, that Asda fillet steaks 2 for £7.00 are very nice too..they also do 2 for 7.00 in rib eye and rump. Never had steaks as nice from tesco before - unless i have now finally mastered cooking steak. I don't have an Aldi near me - i wish we did as they are always being advertised as "best supermarket" for upteempth year running and people are always saying good things about them.

Steaks from Aldi

Glad you enjoyed your steaks Dottie. There's not many things that we don't buy from Aldi , I don't buy the cat food because he's on a special dry food from the vets and some toiletries like face creams and eye makeup I buy from boots etc but I do use their shampoo and conditioners. We even drink their tea after buying Sainsburys for 40 years.The reason my OH likes it is because we can be in and out in half an hour as the girls on the tills are so efficient and friendly. One problem now is because they are so popular the car park gets full but if you chose a hopefully quiet time it's a bit easier to find a space. We will soon have the best of both worlds as we are getting a Lidli and I hope to use both. I don't mind shopping anymore.

Aldi

Have used Aldi for years. Very good for staples and cold meat and their chocolate is good for cake making. Not keen on their meat as it doesn't look good and when you walk past the fresh meat stand in both my local Aldis the smell is distinctly iffy. In any case I buy all my meat from the "proper" butcher. The one I use kills his own so you know EXACTLY where it has come from. (As in "Where did those chops come from?" "Oh, those are from Farmer Bloggs at Sunnybank Farm in Little Blogthorpe".)

Aldi fruit and veg is quite good too and well priced. Although, again I shop in the greengrocer's for mine - cheaper, fresher and better quality and more likely to have been grown in Lancashire or Evesham than in Peru or New Zealand.

It's good to help keep local shops going. If the supermarkets have it all their own way we'll be having to buy what they say we can have not what we want to buy. In our small town we have recently fought off an attempt by a big supermarket chain to muscle in with a big 24 hour store plus filling station on a green field site in a residential area away from the main shopping centre.

Hmm - not sure how the purple prose got in there. I didn't ask for a change of type colour :-)

Aldi

Not food items but we buy our dishwasher tabs here, much cheaper and just as good as leading brands. Also their washing powder is now our preferred buy. Both items highly recommended by Which.

Opera Buff?


"Are you an Opera buff then Manon..... "

Yes, but I was trying to think of a nom de guerre to sign up for this site when an advert for Manon Lescaut at the ROH flashed up on screen!
