What's Cooking In My Kitchen This Week

Last weekend, I cooked and carved Big Bird. It took me at least an hour to get all the meat off the carcass. We ate several meals of turkey, took some to Fellowship Sunday and we still have quite a bit to eat and freeze! Plus broth for soup and enough pan juices for more gravy. Cook once, eat 12 times... now that's my kind of cooking!

I finally got around to doing my freezer inventory this morning. I was mainly interested in seeing how our supply of grass-fed beef was holding up. We received a large order last summer in either late June or early July and have happily been eating beef to our heart's content ever since! Here's what we have left. I hope to make it last through July, maybe a bit longer.

* Chuck roasts-1
