General ramblings

A small extravagance….

July 2, 2013

Hubby was dispatched to the butcher’s at the weekend, with 2 Small boys, and a very specific list: chicken pieces, mince, sausages, bacon and eggs (most of this will go in the freezer I hasten to add. This is not just a week’s worth of butchery shopping…)

He came back with : 2 Small boys (phew!), chicken pieces, mince, sausages, bacon, eggs and these…

I was tempted to reprimand him for such extravagance, but then I remembered: a) I like steak; b) If I go shopping, chocolate often jumps unbidden into my trolley, so it would be a little contrary to complain…

So we fobbed the Smalls off with scrambled eggs on toast (mean parents) and packed them off to bed.

And then tucked into this…

Yum 🙂

And all for less than the cost of a takeaway, and not really very much effort. Happy Days!

    As a rule i try to stay veggie but I would find it hard to resist a bit of prime steak well cooked once in a while in preference to the junk served as takeaway meals. No guilt its adult food not suitable for smalls hope you lit the candles too !

    1) The smalls would not have appreciated it
    2) Red meat is good for you in moderation
    3) You’ve got to eat something
    4)YOU DESERVED IT!
