Even though we're eating like we ought to now, I allow us the once-a-week pleasure of having a piece of toast, an egg, and three pieces of bacon for breakfast. Today was the day.
I was planning our dinner (at noon) when the oldest grandson showed up. His visit was fortuitous, since the food I was going to cook needed to be split three ways, rather than two, in order for us to stay within our calorie limits.
I didn't plan on doing anything but the necessary cooking and chores today. I was going to read my book. However, I had a churn half-full of cream, so I made butter. Bonnie's calf is getting to the point of taking all Bonnie's milk, so I won't have such an excess of cream from now on. Of course, we are not eating butter by the pound. I've been putting it in the freezer. Today I wrapped 1/4- and 1/2-cup amounts to use on popcorn and in recipes.
When we butchered the little deer Heather shot for us, we ground all of it except for four steaks from the tenderest part of the deer. I have never liked deer meat unless it's ground and mixed with a lot of ground beef, but Cliff said the steaks should really be good from such a young doe. I finally got around to fixing those little steaks this week. I wasn't looking forward to eating them, but I did want to give it a try. I did a quick Internet search and found THIS.
How's this for random?
