    Favourite meal of the week so far. Air fried lamb ribs. Had eaten a couple before I remembered to take a pic.

    Just looked at our butchers facebook page to see what he has on special this week.

    Cold roast chook is on special.

    They have a new brand of beef jerky as well, great stuff to have with a beer or three.

    The person at the bowls club I get my jerky and biltong from has only just started up again as he had no time to fiddle around with the preparation.

    Look what I found at Morrison’s. The beef was one big piece, a tad on the large side for little ol me, so took it to the counter to be chopped in half. And now I have the ingredients for the marrow butter @DCUKMod

    Those ribs look marvellous.

    We get the marrowbones weekly (Mr B takes his mother shopping in Morrisons).
    Every week, he brings the bones back, rips the package open and gives them to our slavering hounds, who know the weekly timetable to the minute, and greet him with joyous abandon.

    And every week I say, yes, yes, lucky dogs. Wot about me? Next week please get an extra pack for me!
    But then he forgets... or they only have one pack... or there aren’t any that week...

    (Oh, and I have tried the pig skin. Unfortunately, the fat layer was too thin for good crackling. Very sad)

    Bone marrow is the elixir of good health and the bringer of eternal life.

    Don’t say that, been looking forward to it all morning! Will report back later - and on the butter @DCUKMod

    Just had to bail on my walk (too many twinges for comfort) so butter and crackling will be earlier than planned.

    Unfortunately you’re right! What a shame.
    Not optimistic. It’s in the fridge but there didn’t seem to be nearly enough butter (added more than recipe said) and it was runny! Not sure that all the bone marrow was fully cooked either. Will test once set (if it does set).

    Provided you it's stored in the fridge, it'll still be great for browning/cooking and adding flavour, I'm sure.

    I must admit found the Morrisons pork skin to be barely acceptable, ton inconsistent once I had had butchers rind.

    Thanks. Fascinating, especially as I do have high ferritin levels (although reducing over the past 6 months).

    Hi All, need to come on these forums more!
    Anyway, posted just before Xmas I think, was dallying in Carnivore, but needed some variety.

    Still doing about 95% carnivore, recently cut dairy as I think it may be an issue for me, so variety even harder. Although butter doesn't seem to affect me at all, which is odd? Anyone experienced this?
    But I still can't cut out my beloved peanut butter and chocolate, I only tend to have a tablespoon of PB and a square of 85% lindt chocolate, but its my one little comfort I have.

    Anyway feeling good, energy has been a bit lacking lately and I am not sure why, I am wondering if I am eating enough? What amount on average to people eat a day?
    I realised I don't really feel satisfied fully after breakfast, hence why I probably grab for the PB and choc around 10am! I have 2 rashers of bacon and 2 scrambled eggs in butter, I eat enough eggs so don't really want to add extra, and adding extra bacon will be too costly.. Any ideas to bump it up a bit, considering I also don't have a lot of time in the mornings.

    Made some homemade pate for the first time over the weekend, which came out surprisingly well, I will probably just eat it with a spoon!

    I am hoping to find a local butcher or a farmers market to try and get more locally source meat, though cost is an issue for me.
    I am still quite satisfied with steak and eggs for dinner most nights, so easy and quick and next to no prep!
