The self-sufficiency challenge - day 4

Roast lamb Aug 13

As I made 6 scotch eggs last week, we are still eating them for lunch. However, we finished the meatball casserole last night so tonight, dinner was roast lamb. We got the lamb as a trade in January for some of our Tamworth pork. With it we had roast vegetables. My confession is that some of the vegetables were from the supermarket but had been in the fridge for a couple of weeks. As we believe food waste is a definite NO, any perishables need to be used up. Some of the vegetables - such as the beetroot - however were grown on local allotments. Again, we traded honey for them.
