On Monday I had to visit our nearest village Post office and general store.
I always have a good look at the chilled area where produce from local butchers can be found.
The packaging not only gives a use by date but also the date it was packed.
A reassurance of how fresh the produce is.
Along with my favourite chicken and steak pies I spotted a pack of lamb steaks which I couldn't resist.
Today was the day to do something with them.
Out with my old, heavyweight deep frying pan.
Fry briefly in Olive Oil to seal them.
Then cover with with a 'gravy' made with chicken Oxo and Bisto beef gravy granules.
Cover the frying pan with a perforated lid.
Simmer while potato chunks and mixed veg are cooking in the steamer.
Sliced carrot, green beans, peas, cauliflower, etc..
The enticing, mouth watering odour was making us both drool while we impatiently waited.
I am getting a share, aren't I?
Not to worry. Plenty for both of us.
Needless to say her share disappeared in no time
I finished off with a Sainsbury's individual strawberry trifle
As Dell Boy would say - lovely jublby.
13th December. (By some miracle it started).
