Holy cow! (no pun intended) 20 pounds of meat is much more than either I or my neighbor realized. Only about a quarter of the share is for me. Most of it is for the neighbor as I believe he’s transitioned to a paleo diet.
I kept 1lb ground pork, 1lb ground beef, 1 lb bacon, a flank steak, a couple of pork chops, and a porterhouse steak.
M* also got the ground meats and a porterhouse, but he also got pork ribs, (beef?) top round, (beef?) bottom round, butt flaps (I think), pork breakfast sausage (not in casing)… and a whole bunch of other things I’m forgetting.
I need a larger cooler for the drop offs. The box of meats was the same size as the cooler. The delivery person put the box of meats on its side into the cooler, precariously leaned the ice packs on the side and loosely put the cover on.
It wasn’t a problem though. Everything was still perfectly cold and frozen by the time we both came home. But for my own sanity, I think I should invest in a larger cooler (which I’ve been meaning to regardless).
I bought extras for my siblings. One asked for chicken and one bulb of uncured garlic. Another asked for a pint of Vermont maple syrup (grade B – I’m envious, I prefer grade B!) which I’ll drop off tomorrow.
I’m very excited. I’m plotting things to do as I write this. The only problem is what should I decide on. (^_^)
