Meat for a Week - December

Godfreys Meat for a Week Website Service

Godfreys Meat for a Week - December
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 people sometimes 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 shopping tailored precisely to your personal requirements and taste.

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

We enter December 
As we enter December we have updated our Meat for a Week tab on our Web site to reflect what becomes more popular in December and hopefully help make your choices less time consuming and easier
As December has Christmas in it, this would obviously have affected the individual days selections, so we have left off the last week’s sales that would be dominated by Festive Cuts - to give you a better reflection of what is being bought in the first three normal weeks of December

Attracting a great deal of interest 
If you would like to see what is most popular specially for Christmas then our Christmas Tab list will give you a comprehensive and rich array from which choose from - including our indulgently fabulous Three Bird Roasts which now feature the Mini Three Bird Roast which is attracting a great deal of interest.
Winter seems to have now firmly set in - with the wet and windy weather and the cold temperatures biting at our hands, feet and faces. 

More low, slow cooking. 
Daylight hours seem very short and we seem to have acquired an appetite for more low, slow cooking. 
This is when we feel the yearning for deeply satisfying and nourishing comfort foods to bolster our energy levels through the cold and blustery weather. 
So as we enter December we have updated our Meat for a Week tab on our Web site to reflect what becomes more popular in December - and hopefully help make your choices less time consuming and easier

Filling Thrifty Cuts 
Game now features regularly on a our menus with such favourites as Pheasant, Duck, Venison and hard to find Wild Rabbit - as do filling Thrifty Cuts such as Oxtail, Ox Cheeks, Short Ribs of Beef, Middle Neck of Lamb and Pork Cheeks

Robustly sized and flavoured Roasts and Stew
This is when the big guns get wheeled out with robustly sized and flavoured Roasts, Casseroles and Stews often enriched with Freshly Made Free Range Beef Stock, Chicken Stock - or for the more adventurous - with rarities such as Pork Caul or Beef Marrowbones

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 

Precious leisure time
Some of our super organized customers - especially in the colder months - 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 to save their precious leisure time

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