Meat for a Week November

Godfreys Meat for a Week - November

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.

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 Meat requirements tailored precisely to your personal requirements and taste.

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

We enter November
So as we enter November we have updated our Meat for a Week tab on our Web site to reflect what becomes more popular in November and hopefully help make your choices less time consuming and easier.

The welcoming warmth and crackling sounds of Bonfires at the beginning of November also usher in the first icy blasts of wind that start to blow away the carpet of burnished gold and red leaves - and brings in their place scudding clouds and grey skies – with a chilly bite to the air. 

Scattered with special days
November is scattered with special days such as All Saints Day, All Souls Day, Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day, American Thanksgiving and Stir Up Sunday.

All Saints Day used to be known as All Hallows, Hallows being an old word meaning Saint or Holy Person.

The feast day actually started the previous evening - the Eve of All Hallows - hence Hallowe’en!

Stir up Sunday was, and still is, the traditional day for everyone in the family to take a turn at stirring the Christmas Pudding whilst making a wish 

As the nights draw in
But as the nights draw in, we all start to look for more comfort foods to bolster our energy levels through the colder and blustery weather.
Game now features regularly on a our menus with such favourites as Pheasant, Red Leg Partridge, Venison and hard to find Wild Rabbit - as do filling Thrifty Cuts such as Oxtail Cheeks, Short Ribs of Beef, Middle Neck of Lamb and Pigs Cheeks.

Time to eat Seasonal
Seasonal food is the time of year when food is at its optimum, either in terms of flavour or harvest. In today's global food market most foods are available all year round but when local seasonal food is available it tends to be fresher and cheaper because there has been less transportation and storage time from farm to fork.
Foods are usually harvested when they are at their peak and typically have the most flavour and nutrients, so eating seasonal food tends to be tastier, healthier and better for the environment.

Each meat, fruit or vegetable has a prime time when it is at its seasonal best - and they tend to complement each other. That means extra flavour, extra crunch, extra juiciness - all super-fresh and great value.

And so here is what is in season - and most popular - in November to help you eat seasonally:

Splendidly seasonal Recipe suggestions
November seasonal recipes to try include: 


• Pork Loin with Parma Ham & Oregano - By Nigella Lawson
Nigella goes the whole Italian Hog - not to be missed!
You may notice that the Pork Loin should be de-rinded. Use the rind for the Ciccioli - as Italian Pork scratchings (give or take) are known - which make for very fine aperativo-accompanying morsel.
Preparation time less than 30 mins : Cooking time 1 to 2 hrs.

Beef Cheek and Butternut Broth in Sourdough - by Nigel Slater
Hearty filling Soup needs very little washing up - just eat the bowl when you’re finished!

Chicken with Forty Cloves of Garlic - by The Hairy Bikers
Gallic, garlic aromatic delight - especially with the Colcannon!
            This dish isn’t usually cooked with Shallots but this recipe has added a few to make the sauce extra delicious. Leave them out if you prefer.
            To make a richer sauce from the cooking liquor, you can stir in freshly chopped Tarragon and some double cream or crème fraîche. Not traditional, maybe, but very delicious. Preparation time less than 30 mins : Cooking time 1-2 hrs.

• Slow cooked Lamb Shoulder with Boulangere Potatoes - by Tom Kerridge
Slow and low - melting, simple and moreish - Tom Kerridge at his best.
This is a great dish to cook when you have guests for Sunday lunch – just stick it in the oven and forget about it. The slow cook allows the meat to tenderise slowly and evenly, and you could cook it for even longer than the recipe states if you prefer.
