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:
Roast lamb and roast veg.
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
That was meat for 9 good meals for 2 people for £11.82. There was absolutely no waste. The bones were used to add flavour to the last dishes made so I could reduce the amount of stock cubes used.
