Goal #8 Started: Shop at the local meat market.
I have finally been able to get meat wrapped in paper!
A. Idsøe, the lovely butcher in downtown Stavanger was more then willing to accommodate my needs. The lovely older butcher noted that he would wrap them the ‘old school way’ for me, since I did not want any plastic with them. He was very nice. We eat meat around 5 times a week, and fish twice. My plan is to go in twice a week to buy what I need for that half of the week. I am also going to ask that they double the paper, I think that he would have had he understood what I was wanting – I have read and see photos about how they do with paper when you ask. It is not the end of the world if they will not though – it was just that the paper was blood soaked by the next day, and if I am keeping it a few days – an extra layer would be better. I do wish that I could stop in everyday for meat, but it is just not practical. Also, I found it really nice to be able to ask for advice. I knew some of what I needed, but was open for suggestions for a meat for a wok I was making. Below are photos of the swine fillet he suggested.
