As the days get shorter and the nights get colder, there's nothing like a delicious meal in the comfort of your own home...
Come September, BBQs out with beers on our hands turn into warming casseroles with a glass of red wine, preferably in front of the TV so you can watch X Factor.
You’re also probably a lot more likely to have people over and cook up a storm for your guests. If you’re out of ideas for what to whip up, Lidl has launched a deal that will make easy, quick and cheap to treat yourself and your family or friends.
The budget retailer are launching the ultimate British Night In package, which includes a tasty steak dinner with two sides and wine for a group of five people, and works out at just £3.40 per person – how great is that?
With the deal, shoppers get one pack of Birchwood Farm XXL British Beef Rump Steaks (£9.99 for a pack of five); one bag of Oaklands Wild Rocket (39p, 70g); one bag of Harvest Basket Potato Wedges (65p, 750g); plus two bottles of award-winning Cimarosa South African Pinotage (£2.99 per bottle, 750ml).
The multi award-winning wine included in the deal, which was awarded a Silver IWSC award and a Bronze Decanter World Wine Award last year, is currently 23 per cent cheaper than usual, down from £3.89 to £2.99 per bottle.
In total, the package will cost you £17.01, but for little over £3 per head, it’s a great deal to make a fuss-free dinner for a group of five people.
However, there’s a catch – the deal is only available the weekend of 15th and 16th September until stocks last, so you have to be quick! Race you to the checkouts…
