Holy Cow.


"Imagine if we had to cook with an entire cow?" - Pearl

Actual comment made by Pearl from Pearls of Wisdom in the Hairy Chicken Butt post.
Since Farmer Brown is a beef farmer and we don't have beef in our freezer and I am paying mucho dollars for beef from the Walmart, I have been complaining. So Farmer Brown took a steer to the butcher. Today, the call came in.
"We have your cow ready. How would you like that cut up?"
Apparently, responding with "in packages" was not the response they were expecting. I guess I am to tell the butcher what cuts of meat I would like. And I guess, you really don't get 351 pounds of beef all in ground hamburger and steaks. I mean, I guess you can get 351 pounds of ground beef if you want it, but there are lots of other exciting pieces of meat waiting for me.
I told the butcher to surprise me.
Not really. I called my mother-in-law who took matters into her hands and placed the order. We pick it up tomorrow. The deep freezer is ready and waiting.
As a side note, our beef grew up in the pasture two miles down the road. It was fed grass and a little grain. This is the way that Farmer Brown has always raised his beef. When I told him that we would now be feeding the children "organic" beef, he snorted. Farmer Brown doesn't think much of all this "eco-friendly stuff" simply because Farmer Brown was "green" before it was fashionable.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I am glad you like the playlist you can add one to your blog it's free, and as I always say, "If it's Free it's for Me!". I bought a beef quarter a few months ago and wish I had bought a half. Love your blog!

P.S. Had to remove my comment to repair it for poor spelling.

We got half a hog back in the summer. I had no idea what to ask for. It was my nephew's 4-H project. I don't want to know what it ate, what it looked like or how it spent it's time. I'm in meat denial. I just want to cook it and pretend my kids aren't asking if we're eating "squeely" tonight. They think that's funny.
