Aussie Roast Lamb For Christmas????

The older Adolfian daughter visited for a week recently and gasped at the price of meat.

So, Adolf had a look around.



The price of lamb leg roast at Countdown in Auckland is $18.50/kg and the price at Coles in Adelaide is $12/kg.  There's no GST on meat is Australia so the equivalent Countdown price would be $16.09.  Exchange rate cconverts Contdown to $14.63.

Doesn't look so bad now, does it?

Maybe the Mad Butcher won't be rushing across the Tasman for a couple of containers of Aussie lamb for Kiwi Christmas dinners.
