Beloved called... he has shopped...
He has a network of friends who work in various food service industries – butchers, abattoirs, someone who does something unspecified with fish. No doubt there are others. While I appreciate the yumminess, it does mean there is food shopping going on I am unable to supervise.
And with the holidays coming up, it is the season to eat until we explode in big messy chunks. There's a lot of feasting, a lot of hosting and enough left overs to last until February, it's always how we keep the holidays.
So high quality but heavily discounted meat is definitely high on my bonus list
Beloved buying it though?
His message (he is now out of contact as he always is when he suspects I may Ask Questions) tells me he spend "over £100".
"Over" is a vague word. Over can mean a lot. Over could mean we have a new mortgage.
But it's not actually the money I'm too worried about - yes, despite Beloved's previous... issues. I am concerned that if he has spent a copious amount of money on high quality HEAVILY DISCOUNTED meat that that means he has bought a lot of meat
The man who bought the 22lb Turkey
The man who bought the 8 whole chickens
The man who bought the 5lb ball of mince
I fear there may be a whole cow in my kitchen with Beloved next to it saying "at least it's dead!"
I fear even more there may be a whole cow in my kitchen, with Beloved next to it saying "it's alive so it's fresh!"
