Works for Me Wednesday - Meat in the Freezer



One of the things that has helped simplify life around here has been finding ways to always have meat in the freezer. First, we bought 1/4 of a steer from a local farm. The cost was a little higher than it would have been at the grocery store, but it is grass fed beef, so it tastes wonderful! We also have lots of friends who hunt and end up with extra meat. Right now, we have venison and some wild turkey breasts in our freezer. My grocery trips are generally for vegetables, sides, and other stuff. If Mr. Math Tutor starts hunting, like he's interested in doing, then the venison will become even more plentiful. Check out Rocks in My Dryer for more great Works for Me Wednesday ideas!

We used to by half a steer - it WAS wonderful to always have the meat in our freezer. After looking at the price of roasts this week, we may have to rethink NOT doing it!

Great tip!

It certainly is a great tip - Having meat in the freezer also helps when trying to create a meal plan for the week, too. You don't have to hope what you want is on sale. :)

Have a fabulous day!
