Meat! - Tina Marie's Ramblings
Red hair and black leather, my favorite colour scheme...
I've been doing a reasonable amount of research into local CSAs, without much success. Most of them don't deliver, and either have to be picked up at weird times (between 3 and 6 on Tuesdays? but I work on Tuesdays!), or have to be picked up at the farm 30 miles out of town. But while I was researching, I found Jolie Vue Farms. They do a CSA box - of meat. They deliver, once a month, on the weekend. And if you aren't home, you can just leave a cooler and they'll fill it for you.

I signed up a few weeks ago, and my first delivery was this weekend.

The farm foreman actually brought the cooler. It came with a newsletter, a cookbook, and lots of very frozen meat. It's supposed to feed 2 people, 3 times a week, for a month.

Off the top of my head:

  • A gorgeous Top Round Roast
  • 2 huge Pork Chops
  • 2 bone-in ribeyes
  • several pounds of sausages
  • all-beef hot dogs
  • A whole chicken
  • Beef for stir-fry
  • 2 pounds of ground beef
  • 2 big packages of soup bones. They weren't labeled more then that, but I think they're beef.
Meat Delivery

I'm excited. I'm roasting the chicken tonight, and making vegetable soup tomorrow with one set of bones.


Pork Chops


In other news, I made an amazing batch of homemade BeenieWeenies last night. I used this bean recipe, only I put them in the Crockpot instead of the oven, and I added a package of cut-up hot dogs for the last half an hour. They're really good, and they make a great lunch.
