Well, we know what ... or should I say WHERE our beef is!
It went from in my trunk...
To a then-almost-empty freezer...
And voila! From left to right: Steaks and ribs/ chicken, pork loin and pesto/ roasts, soup bones, and dog bones/ ground beef.
This is the result of us buying a half-share of beef from a local farmer. He only had a herd of thee (this was no feed lot), and each one spent its life eating in a nice pasture, on organic grass.
YUM. And, what's extra neat? The flat rate per pound was cheaper than I could ever even find ground beef at the store. And, I know that all this meat came from ONE ANIMAL. No weird cross contamination. It's especially nice with the ground beef. The meat in one of the one-lb packages? Came from one animal, rather than possibly hundreds.
Nice indeed. We support our local farmers!
