Welcome to my new follower Thrifty Living. Your very welcome and thank you for dropping by.
Well, we're onto the last portions of meat from my £70 meat pack from the local butcher. It's been a 5 week month for me and we have had plenty of meat to cover the month. The family have really enjoyed lots of different cuts of meat which has put a bit more variety into their menu plan.The only thing the girls were not keen on was a shoulder of lamb which I cooked long and slow. The meat was tender but they said it was fatty. I have put the remainder of this joint in the freezer. I intend to mince it up and shall add to a tomato sauce to make a type of bolognese to have on pasta next Monday I think. It's payday next Wednesday so I've got a delivery coming and I shall place another order with the butchers to collect next thursday. We shall be ready then for the Easter holidays. Not that I will benefit from the bank holiday on Good Friday. Working for the NHS means we work bank holidays if they fall on days we work.
Just noticed today is my 100th post.
Anyway, it's time for me to get started on our evening meal so shall say, adios amigos!
