And then there was one.
We still have plenty of food to last the winter, but the rummaging for something "good" isn't likely to stop any time soon. Well, actually, it won't be rummaging any more- it's all neat and organized now, but yearning for something good to magically appear will continue.
By good, I mean BEEF. I am grateful for the half a pig or so, still residing in the freezer, as well as the chickens. The rabbits will feed the kids, but I'm cooking them when I can eat leftovers. I am sick of rabbit- it's never been one of my favourites. But I'm pretty much sick of everything, now. The same thing, over and over- it wears on you. I want BEEF.
Husband has vetoed the hanging cow in the cold room plan, on the grounds that it will be too heavy and awkward to carry downstairs. So I have to wait until spring, and then I am once again dependent on the weather cooperating.
In the meantime, I am going to find out what meatloaf, lasagna, stew, and salisbury steak taste like when made from pork. The chili was edible, so it can't be that bad, can it? I want BEEF!
