By the time we got home, it was nearly 1:30pm so we stopped to have beans on toast! I finally remembered to re-take the few decoration pictures we did on Sunday, not too exciting. Unfortunately I managed to chop the fairy off the top of the tree:
We managed to get the joint of meat we were after and that is now in the freezer. The butcher de-boned it and they will first be rinsed then roasted ready for soup making.
Although we have 'invested' in 3 joints of meat for the festive 10 days, the total spent does not exceed our ration allowance each, for all of December and January. We have only spent about £5 on meat so far this month so all in all, it will work out just right. There will be quite a bit leftover for pies, curry, etc which will probably feed us through February as well. All in all, a good investment.
