Over the weekend we had a sort out of our freezers, we have three! Yes, three, a necessity when you raise your own meat, a full beefie beast takes up a lot of room, then add a lamb or two and a pig, well that adds up to a good years, if not more, supply. Of course over the year that dwindles down and that is what has happened here. Freezers aren't the most economical things to run, especially if they aren't full. A good idea is to fill up those gaps with bags of ice, the added bonus to this is that you never, ever run out of ice for your G&T's! Win, win all around!
So, what was I talking about? Oh yeah, meat! As we sorted through it all and condensed it down to the smaller chest freezer & the up right freezer, I thought it would be a good opportunity to make an inventory. It seems that we have rather a lot of lamb, well it's hogget really, slightly older and tastier we reckon. What to do with all that lamb? Cook it and eat it silly!
On the Menu today....Irish Stew.
