That was the wicker setting?
+1 for the pork steaks. They're great.
Cabbage rolls this week for oktoberfest week sale
and red cabbage. and german mustard. yum
Sweet Bavarian mustard is the bomb diggity.
Oh good, I bought that and some other of the german food.
I got the roof basket and bag. Will try them out this weekend.
Anyone tried the aldi pizza oven?
On sale for $199 this Saturday
They seem to be a generic Troops/Arrosto Lorenzo model, like the one here
Thinking about taking the plunge.
EDIT: Appears Bunnings sell the same thing for a dollar cheaper
No but I'd love to. Looks like a great price.
I'm thinking about the sunlounger tomorrow.
Anyone tried the Frozen pretzels?
No, tell me more....
i dont want to commit to a whole box if their rubbish, but saw them on saturday. They come in either the normal pretzel (like a soft pretzel) or pretzel sticks
once, yonks ago (4-5yrs ago). baked in oven and then just used them to dip in soup etc.
quite salty but then it is a pretzel
was good and would buy again.
obviously not as good as buying one fresh in Bavaria, I'm over there every 6-10 months so stick to the fresh stuff.
same reason I stopped eating schnitzel in AU, we can't make it like those Austrians & Bavarians
Yea man, those majans mix have been at coles/woollies for years. My only beef with them is they don't have a single product that doesn't have some sort of bite to them. I'd like a mix that is like, normal and doesn't leave nothing but a chilli flake tasting burning in the mouth.
I tried those rosemary/garlic chips last week. They're just strange. Very strong rosemary taste, initially reminds one of a lamb roast, but then just seems strange. I recently found the bbq honey (something like that), crinkle cuts, they're pretty good.
Also If you're into it, I see ice break is at aldi now too. I personally don't like those much, but others do.
Aldi has their $199 two door gas smoker back on saturday the 28th.
I didn't buy one last year because I was unsure of Aldi product quality (they were still new to perth), but this year I'm gonna go get one.
Like many things at Aldi, it's a relabelled brand name. Their Coolabah smoker is a rebadged Hark smoker.
I remember now people saying this last year after I missed out.
Even more reason to buy one for 199.
Picked up one of the 'Premium 29er' mountain bikes that came in a couple weeks ago. They got the solid reviews for the money, and it was reduced to $180 on the weekend.
I bought one of their "heat and serve" meals, chicken pesto pasta. I wasn't expecting much, but it was really very nice. Also, garlic bread not too shabby. It says it's enough for 5 so for 9.99 pretty cheap and around $2 for the garlic bread. Any of their food I've had, I haven't gone "yuck, that's foul". I didn't like their frozen pies compared to my usual ones, but otherwise it's all edible (so far).
