WWYD in this situation (large Chateaubriand)
We get our meat from a local farmer and buy it by the side, which lasts us a year. They've treated us well, so for any special cuts, we go to them. We ordered a chateaubriand for Christmas from them... 2.5lbs. They guaranteed that it would be a nice dry-aged, never frozen piece of meat, so it's not like we can just call them and tell them that we really only need 1 lb. of meat now. However, with the weather, it's just going to be only dh, dd, and me now. Obviously the meat is WAAAAY to big for 3 people, one of whom is 7 years old. I'm leaning toward cutting it in half and making two smaller chateaubriand and serving the rest on New Year's Eve. I would probably freeze the other half in that case. I just don't want to have leftovers (that have to be warmed up, ruining the meat) from this beautiful cut of meat. What do you all think? What would you do?
Life is too short to eat processed, artificially-colored, chemically-preserved, genetically-modified food. Or maybe that IS why life's too short.
