Goodbye brown cow!

Back in April, we bought a quarter of a cow and popped it into our freezer, and it was good.

42 lbs of ground beef

Full o' food.

So good in fact, that we tried all kinds of different recipes throughout the year and enjoyed them all.

Beef stew.

Now, however, we're down to our last few pieces of meat (short ribs). Nine months of eatin'. I'd say that was a pretty good purchase! We shared with friends and family and spread the joy of locally grown, free range beef (and chicken!).

I suspect we'll do it again.

my parents used to buy their beef by the quarter, so your freezer pics brought back memories. I had to check out your blog (over from Thursday Drive) because your title is hilarious.

Thanks, PhD! We did, actually, order another quarter because we like shopping in our own freezer, it turns out. Also, right after announcing it was all gone, I found a few more cuts of this and that. More experimenting!
