1/2 a lamb (that's 16 chops, 4 joints, rolled breast, liver and kidney)
20 chicken thighs, divided into 5 packs of 4
12 pork steaks, in packs of 2
2 packs of steak mince
3 packs of back bacon
1 pack of pork mince
20 pork sausages, frozen as 4 packs of 5
1 whole organic free range chicken (bought for half price as it was on it's date)
1 small gammon joint
I'm going to set a mini challenge to see just how long I can make this meat last, without buying any more until it's all used up. Having said that, OH has said he'd like a beef joint for Christmas, so we will be buying that.
We are big meat eaters, we do tend to eat meat most days, although I have been trying to do a veggie meal once or sometimes twice a week lately. But there's no reason why we can't have more veg-based meals, and I'm certainly going to try using less meat in recipes, bulking the recipe out with more veg or pulses. The pork steaks, for example, are big thick ones....we could have just half of one each with more veg. Or I could use one diced up in a risotto or something, and with plenty of veg added that could even stretch to 2 meals for the 2 of us.
