Went to Bresnan’s to buy meat on Saturday. Their meat is good and the service is usually great but the chap serving me was a bit distracted. I asked him for a leg of lamb, four chicken breasts, four Cumberland sausages and a half pound of round mince. I opened the bag at home and found the lamb, the chicken, the sausages and enough mince to make one meatball.
He evidently misheard me but why would a butcher think a customer would want less than a quarter pound of mince? Maybe some pets eat mince and butchers are used to people buying very small amounts. Well, I don’t have pets and, on Saturday evening, I didn’t have burgers either.
That reminds me, I must post my meatballs recipe some day soon. They are scrumptious, if I say so myself.
