Meat is Here!

I ordered a Spring Selections meat pack plus some other bits and pieces from Belmore Biodynamic Meats, and it was delivered today. TJ was VERY interested in this box when it was delivered, LOL.

The column on the left is the extra bits and pieces I got (500g organic pork loin chops, 500g organic pork mince, 500g turkey mince, 500g chicken mince, 500g beef mince, 500g eye fillet). The two columns on the right are the contents of the Spring Selections pack (500g Extra Lean Lamb Mince, 500g Lamb Backstraps, 500g Diced Lamb, 500g Loin Chops, 1.7kg Leg of Lamb, 1kg Organic Chicken Breast Fillets, 500g Organic Chicken Strips, 1.5kg Organic Chicken Whole, 500g Topside Mince Extra Lean).

It's not cheap BUT I'm only eating animal protein once a day now (instead of three or more times like I used to), and I break it up with some cheaper cuts like kangaroo. And fish too. So this should last us close to a month.

Oh, and here's a pic of my breakfast this morning: a white corn tortilla folded over kidney beans with chilli seasoning and topped with tomato and coriander, served with cooked onions, capsicum, mushrooms and spinach. Tasted pretty good but next time I'll use refried beans instead of kidney beans, and salsa instead of tomato and coriander.

Yum, I'm even more interested than TJ!

Breakfast looks awesome!

Love the brekki!
Did you ever come up with your own recipe for the refried beans?

Thanks Liz, Shelley and Raechelle!

Raechelle, I do have a recipe for refried beans but I haven't tried it yet. Will give it a go over the next few days and report back!
