Christmas dinner savings (and other meals!)

LIDL, who I suspect will be the food shopping choice of many this year to save £££s is now cutting the costs of putting Christmas dinner (and other meals!) together from the 15th.

  • Potatoes – 19p
  • Parsnips – 19p
  • Carrots – 19p
  • Sprouts – 19p
  • Swede – 19p

Lidl will reduce the price of its British Carrots (1kg), British Parsnips (500g) British Mini Roasts (1.5kg), British Swede and the all-important British Brussels Sprouts (500g) to 19p

I suspect most supermarkets will do this too. Worth remembering you can easily freeze a lot of veggies, so if funds allow and you have the freezer space, could be worth stocking up for the New Year too. Cheap veggie soups in cold Jan are a big winner for us!

This is good news! Thanks, @darren :blush:

It will be good to see what the others do, but 19p is going to be hard to match.

See you in the queue…

What’s sad about this is most years they have a lot of waste - hence if you can stock up and freeze, everyone wins

That’s a great idea…perhaps we should be looking for those recipes that warm up well after freezing, and start the Great British Christmas Batch Cooking Challenge… :thinking:

batch cooking is a must in our house. That + slow cooker meals are the main ways we manage to find time to eat most weeks!
