This time last week it was wifey weekend. What’s wifey weekend? Well if you follow my wife, Do Not Refreeze and I on Twitter and Instagram, chances are you will know our wifey weekends have become somewhat legendary. ‘Legendary’ because they always revolve around one thing and one thing only – food. Quite possibly it brings us more joy and happiness than make-up. (Oooh, did I say that out aloud?)
This was our third wifey weekend. We rocked up to Smithfield meat market in the city of London at 3am to the sound of ‘Boats and Hoes’ and bought a colossal amount of animal flesh for consumption, we had a cheese and crackers session, we had steak and chips and we watched A LOT of Will Ferrell films. And one Ben Stiller flick.
Visiting Smithfield’s is one of those must-do things about London. Truly, it is. Everyone who works there is so friendly that you can’t quite believe you’re in London. As for the prices…unbelievable! We bought four huge sirloin steaks for £15 and Leanne bagged 18 chicken breasts for £18.
We also stumbled across Wild Garlic Yarg. HNNNNGH! It’s hard cheese wrapped in wild garlic leaves. If you haven’t tried this, we want to know why the hell not!
*sigh* If only every weekend was a wifey weekend. Happy memories…
By the way, this was all we managed to photograph. After all, we were pre-occupied with eating.
Have a lovely, long weekend! (If you’re in the UK, that is…)
