Meat For a Week May

Godfreys Meat for a Week - May

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

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

The disappointment of the supermarket visit

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. 
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 selections 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 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 - 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 May we have updated our Meat for a Week tab on our Web site to reflect what becomes more popular in May and hopefully help make your choices less time consuming and easier

A soft syllable

May - a soft syllable, and a gentle name for one of the best months in the garden year: cool, misty mornings gently burned away with a warming spring sun, followed by breezy afternoons and chilly nights.   

Eternal youth

According to legend, if you wash your face in the morning dew on the first day of May, you will be granted eternal youth.
If that doesn't work for you, perhaps one of the seasonal recipes below might do the trick.
With ingredients from Pork, Lamb to Wood Pigeon and Rabbit at their best, now is the time to eat seasonal!

Incomparably sublime

There's a strong hint of summer in the air this month. 
Enjoy juicy Peas, Broad Beans, Morels, Rocket, Spring Onions, Watercress, Spinach, Chicory, Radishes and the newly picked majestic Jersey Royal New Potatoes - and finally the incomparably sublime, crowning glory that is British Asparagus 
The British Asparagus season only lasts a few weeks, but it's a memorable one for its fine delicate flavour - so do make the most it. 
Spring Lamb, Veal, Poultry, Diced Cuts and smaller Meat Cuts such as 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
With Rocket, Watercress, Spring Onions, Asparagus, Jersey New Potatoes, Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Radishes, Spinach and the first early Salad Leaves  - all in, or coming into season - there is no shortage of new fresh ingredients to cater for all the different meals we now start to crave
But some of May’s ingredients are not around for long - so do make the most of them before they disappear

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 Fridays - whilst the weekend is when the longer cooking big guns have their day
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 - Free Range Pork - has been covered in detail in our “What’s in Season” article sent earlier this week - and currently available during the whole of May on our Website
So here are a few seasonal suggestions of what you may wish to try for each day of the week
