I reviewed the last big shop's meat value before I put together the next shopping list. I had brought a shoulder of lamb for £7.72 and a (large) chicken for £4.50 for two of us. From these we had:

Lamb in a tomato sauce
Lamb curry with mushrooms
Roast chicken and veg
Chicken in bacon in cheese sauce with pasta
Chicken with honey and mustard stew with baked potatoes
Chicken and mushroom curry
Chicken stew with dumplings
