Remember last month when our local farm shop, Bodnant Welsh Food had the £10 voucher off a £20 shop and I did just that ... spent £20 and saved £10. This months offer was a £5 voucher off a £10 shop .... if I'd gone shopping on my own I would have bought just ten pounds worth of meat and saved myself £5, but nooooo I went with Lovely Hubby and we ended up buying £27.75 worth of meat AND a packet of cakes!!
As soon as we got home I portioned up the meat into usable sized portions. Bacon into four slices per pack and the pork chops all individually wrapped and then bagged. All but one pack of bacon went straight into the freezer (more about that tomorrow).
We decided that we would split the benefit of the voucher and call it £1 off the cakes ... making them 50p each ... not a bad price for a treat. And then £2 each off the bacon and the pork chops, making them £1.60 for each pack of bacon and £1.78 for each pork chop.
The first of the bacon was eaten this morning and although it was expensive compared to supermarket packs of bacon, it was just like the bacon we used to produce ourselves. It didn't shrink at all in the pan, there was no white gunk coming out of it as it cooked (this happens because cheap bacon is pumped full of water), and, according to Lovely Hubby it tasted absolutely delicious.
Spent Today £25.75 Cash and £5 Bodnant voucher.
And the moral of this story is ..... when your husband issues you with a strict housekeeping Challenge DO NOT LET HIM GO SHOPPING WITH YOU!!
