Well our half of a Beef made it to our freezer this weekend. My husband has a buddy that is a rancher down in SW Montana, and this year he had a few Angus yearlings that he wanted to unload so he asked us if we’d like one. Of course we would! My parents split it with us and got the other half. He gave us a great deal, butchered it, and brought it to the meat processing shop for us. I’m pretty excited about having over 200 lbs of local Montana-raised, grass-fed Angus Beef! Our freezer is looking pretty happy. =) There will be a lot of fun dinners to make with all of this, so you’ll be seeing some yummy recipes and dishes on here for a while.
Earlier this weekend I sorted out the upright freezer and made room for all the meat. I stuffed all of my frozen summer vegetables, berries, and fruit on the top, and my containers of homemade chicken stock and some soup in the door. A couple shelves are stuffed with a lot of elk meat, and the rest is the beef!
And Will has a fun DIY project keeping him busy this weekend, here’s just a preview…
A house for Jackson! I’m loving it, he started it yesterday and today is almost done with it. I’m pretty sure it will be the coziest, cutest dog house on the block, complete with a window, trim, and a shingled roof that will never get leaky. =)
