I get so fed up trying to come up with “What are we going to eat tonight” Especially when it is a one woman job. The hubster is busy with his finals and the kids are having an incredibly fussy period and I want to lose weight. This all merges together to make a harmonious experience….. Not!
We usually shop in Northern Ireland as we are relatively close to the border. My folks found a fantastic butcher up there (Stewarts Family Butcher) so we used to go up there and stock up once a month. Due to circumstances, I haven’t been able to travel there and have tried the local butchers. We are incredibly spoilt with Stewarts as we haven’t found a local butcher quite like it.
A new service is now available and that is nationwide delivery from The Premium Butcher. Advertised on Facebook, they had an offer for 20% off when we order online at a certain time.
Amongst others we ordered the Family Bundle:
12 x Fresh Beef Burgers
5 x 5oz Striploin Steaks
5 x 5oz Pork Chops
500g Diced Beef
500g Diced Lamb
500g Beef Julienne
500g Round Steak Mince
2 x 7oz Sirloin Steaks
1kg Back Bacon
1kg Topside Roast
1 x 1lb Back Rashers
1 x 1lb Sausage
I have used a few things of it already.
Some of the beef burgers were used, served on Portobello Mushrooms instead of burger buns.
Last night we had the beef julienne (sprayed with balsamic vinegar and cooked in a wee bit of red wine), served with roasted Mediterranean vegetables, roasted butternut squash with bacon bits and bulgar wheat.
Tonight came the meatballs.
So, now, I need inspiration for the rest….
Cannot wait until the exams are over and the hubster has a go at cooking 😀
