Beef is back on the menu!

Finished butchering today after the 6 inches of snow had let up and melted some. We had rib-eye steaks for dinner tonight-our first homegrown Jersey beef .... delicious. Geeta Dardick (author of the BEST book on the subject: Home Butchering and Meat Preservation) warned that we should have low expectations as our beef isn't grown in a feed-lot. May be they were low, but were greatly exceeded.

Time and taste will tell whether we do this again soon, but thumbs up for now. Groovy man!

Oremus pro invicem!

This sounds like a line from Lord of the Rings, the follow up.
