I’m a bit late catching up with my meal planning this month. I’ve just been so busy with one thing and another. I only managed to get to the butcher yesterday. As usual I left my list with him and went to do my other errands around town, planning to go back later to pay.
Then my toddler decided to puke everywhere in the middle of Tesco so I had to abandon everything in favour of a (very tense) bus ride home.
But that’s the beauty of getting to know your local butcher. I gave him a ring when I got home and he said it wasn’t a problem, he’d deliver it that evening and I could pay on the doorstep. That is excellent customer service. So for £49.50 (and free delivery) I got:
3 x chicken breasts
8 x sausages
8 x rashers of bacon
6 x lamb chops
1lb minced lamb
3lb boneless beef brisket joint
6 x pork loin steaks
3 x ribeye steaks.
So what are we eating this week? Here’s my meal plan:
MONDAY: salmon fish pie and broccoli
TUESDAY: beef and mushroom stew
WEDNESDAY: broccoli and gruyere quiche with salad
THURSDAY: roasted squash stuffed with mushrooms, feta and couscous
FRIDAY: bacon and onion roly poly, mash and runner beans
SATURDAY: beefburgers in buns and parsnip chips
SUNDAY: lemon chicken tray bake.
