But the beef! I hope we have enough room in the freezer- we've been working hard at making space. I took out the last of my stash of flour- we're almost out upstairs and had only 5lb left in my container in the freezer. I can still take out the oatmeal but hopefully we won't need to. Supposedly our half a cow was 272.5 lbs. OMG!!! I've never had that much beef in my house- EVER!!! What ever possessed us to buy that much! I know it was a good decision on many levels but we historically haven't eaten that much beef- probably because we couldn't afford it and/or I didn't want to support industrial feed lot beef production. Toward the end of the farmer's market season we got 10 lbs of ground beef from a guy there and we still have some left. I'm having some fear of what will we do with this much beef!!! I did pass on the tongue that the guy offered us- I had tongue as a child but I don't think I could sell anyone else here.
Ok- Now I'm just rambling. I need to look at the freezer again. We were told that we would need approximately 4 cubic feet of space. EEEK!!
