Stews always taste better the next day.

So I cleaned out some space in the freezer today (some stuff that was buried and has been in there a while).

My plan was to make space for making sausage this weekend. I got the casings today, planned to go get pork shoulder tomorrow.

My plan was blown up. Kathleen called me and told me she was bringing home a deer. Not some deer, but a deer. We have just over 30 pounds of deer in the freezer now... (right where I planned on putting my sausage.).

I really need a deep chest freezer.

yeah, did it follow her home with bluebirds placing flowers in her hair, bunnies tossing flower petals where she walks, and racoons following behind holding the train of her gown?



you bagged the deer, of course...

The short version is she has a coworker that likes to hunt but has no more room for storage. He got to hunt, she paid for the butchering and we get the meat. Win-win!
