    Here are some interesting recipes/cocktails for using Rose. Instead of Pimms, I would use Lidl's Peytons at £6.99 a bottle.

    I bought Valley Spire cheese a few weeks ago in Lidls, and opened it up and it had been pre-frozen and it crumbled all the time I am working my way through it, and had to whizz it in my small chopper to even more crumbs as its impossible to slice so I shan't be buying that cheese again

    Glad it's not just me. I've found their mature cheddar (the one in the purple pack) is always crumbly these days but the other types I've tried have always been fine. I wondered if it was a batch storage issue or something.
    A witty saying proves nothing

    I'll be wanting the cheese. I gave it a miss last time there was cheese listed as I felt I had enough at home already - and the time before that I missed it as I thought it was a week-long offer, so went on the Tuesday

    I'm nearly out of cheese now, so a couple of packs would suffice.

    Probably not.

    Cheddar is subject to an ageing process. The older the cheese the more crumbly it becomes. You might prefer eating a young cheddar with a smooth texture and a mild flavour, some of us prefer the older stuff with a bit more bite.

    I think you have been unlucky. I've never had a problem with the red packs, although the vintage cheese on offer tastes lovely, there's not much taste difference between this and the big packs of standard mature.

    Cheese, crisps and nectarines for me

    The last lot of Mature Cheese an Red Onion I bought were vile, far too much salt. I won't be risking that flavour again, although the Chilli was fine.

    The nectarines I found go rotten inside before they ripen. Aldi's on the other hand are just perfect.

    Pimm's vs. Peyton's
    andygb


    If you take into account alcohol content - Pimm's 25%, Peyton's 17.5% - a litre of Pimm's at £10 is much the same price as a litre of Peyton's at £6.99.

    Crisps and Cheese. The couple of big blocks in the deal a few weeks back are nearly gone - so good timing.

    Also XXL week in our store this week! You beauty there was the big Cien 1L shower gels (95p) and their old-style 100-instead-of-80 packed baby wipes (big thick decent ones before the done away the 80 down to 64 crappy ones now). I guess just had extra of those old-style wipes sadly so got a whole big box of them! Some other good stuff in the fridge bit including ham, mozerella, bacon and 10 instead of 8 Irish recipe sausages.
    PK!
