More meat in the freezer

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 272

I went to the butcher and picked up a half pig I ordered from them. They are an old fashioned firm and I can have the carcase cut up into the size of joint I need for the two of us, then they pack and freeze it so I just need to pick it up and put into the freezer here.
Many years a go now, when I went to buy the freezer, the size I wanted was out of stock, so the manager offered me a larger one at a good price, and I have never regretted having the extra space. I have been able to stock up on cheap deals, buy bread at 10p a loaf and raid the marked down shelves ever since. Now I always have veges available, with the carb count marked on the pack, and the Lidl rolls freeze well so I always have them fresh when I want them, plus I can take half an ordinary loaf out for my husband and leave the other half to stay fresh.
