Labor Day Weekend Odds & Ends

Three quick items to share:

1) Meat!
I picked up our fourth meatload from Cedar Valley Sustainable Farm (see #1 and #2 – I didn’t get a picture of #3 because it occurred on moving day).  We receive a share every other month and it’s plenty for our meat-cooking needs.  Look at that giant rack of ribs!  It’s like something out of The Flintstones.

Here’s what we got:

  • One whole fryer and one halved fryer
  • Stir fry beef
  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • Pork bratwurst
  • Ribs
  • One and one half dozen eggs

2) Booze!
One of the most productive plants in our garden is Japanese cucumber.  We decided to take a break from cucumber salad and make cucumber vodka instead. One bottle vodka + one peeled, seeded and sliced cumber + three days in a cupboard.  Very easy and delicious.

3) Ping-pong!
We bought a cheap table off Craigslist this morning.  The other items on my to-do list are in danger of falling by the wayside as I turn my attention to Operation Destroy Jarrod.

Have a good weekend!
