Meat For a Week July

Godfreys Meat for a Week Website Service

Godfreys Meat for a Week - July
Our specially designed for busy households - Meat for a Week Service - where you can cook some cuts straight away, keep some in the fridge - or pop some into the freezer for the end of the week.

No need to buy for every single day - just buy for the days you need - be it for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner or for that Special Occasion

Not every customer has time to visit our shop in their busy lives - and some would like the convenience of all the week’s meat requirements taken care of in one go. 

Avoid the disappointment of the supermarket visit.
So now you can Click and Collect or have Godfreys Premium Quality Meats and Poultry delivered in one box - Nation wide direct to your door - with something new to enjoy every day - without having to resort to the disappointment of the supermarket visit.

It wasn’t really our idea.
It’s what many of our customers already do-and they have grown to rely upon it so much we thought we should share the idea with all of our customers.

Rather than offer pre-chosen quantities and selection we have tried to emulate what many of our customers already do to help them in their busy lives.

We soon realised that many households may have two people in one day, and maybe six the next, so fixed quantities was not such a good idea.

We also realised that different required different meat preferences.

Make your choice easier-and quicker!
So the best choice was to create on our Website a tab for each day of the week showing our customers top preferences for that day so make your choice easier - and quicker!

That way you can work through the days with easy choices and you can also decide what quantities will suit that day.
Your entire Weekly Meat shopping in minutes
Just start on a day and make a choice - add it to your cart - and within a few minutes you will have completed your entire weekly – or monthly - Meat requirements tailored precisely to your personal requirements and taste.

The daily selections naturally reflect the changing seasonal changes each month. 

As we enter July we have updated our Meat for a Week tab on our Web site to reflect what becomes more popular in July and hopefully help make your choices less time consuming and easier
Laziness finds some respectability
July - the traditional month to make hay whilst the sun shines - literally! - and the month when laziness finds some respectability

Dreamy afternoons, balmy nights - and sometimes that certain smell of summer rain that can come as such a welcome relief to the heat.

School holidays start to commence and families and friends start to fire up their Barbecues

Salads really come into their own but with more experimental vegetables being tried by our more adventurous cooks

With ingredients from Lamb to Wood Pigeon and Rabbit at their best, now is the time to eat seasonal!

With Summer now fully underway we can start to enjoy Beetroot, Fennel, Globe Artichokes, Lettuces, Rocket, Watercress, juicy Peas, Broad Beans, Peppers, Sorrel, Spinach, English Tomatoes, French Beans, Chicory, Samphire, Spring Onions and Radishes

Lamb, Beef, Diced Cuts and smaller meat Cuts including our Mini Roasts start to gain popularity as the weather warms with Gammon remaining a favourite for those who like to make their own Roast Hams for cold tables and picnics

Racks of Lamb and Lamb Noisettes are particularly in great demand

And of course the Barbecue Cuts really start to come into their own in July

If you are having an early Barbecue in addition to the usual favourites – do try our Boerewors Sausages - South Africa’s favourite Beef Sausage - the full story is on the 
www.Godfreys.co Sausage page

Quick-to-prepare - and quick-to-cook 
With Meat for a Week we find that the quick-to-prepare - and quick-to-cook recipes dominate Monday to Thursdays - whilst the weekend is when the longer cooking big guns have their day - although in Summer they tend to be the lighter recipes

Some of our super organized customers make a big casserole or Stew for weekdays that can last a few days and can be quickly heated up and served when they get home

Our featured Seasonal meat this month - Wood Pigeon - has been covered in detail in our “What’s in Season” article sent earlier this week - and currently available during the whole of July on our Website.

So here are a few seasonal suggestions of what you may wish to try for each day of the week in July
