Double Meat

May Meat

I was in Los Angeles for my scheduled meat pickup in April, so I got to double up yesterday. There was a bit of duplication, but who am I to complain? I got two of the Best Chickens, five thick pork chops, sweet Italian sausage, sirloin steak, sirloin tips,  a chuck steak, ground beef, and lamb loin chops. The lamb will be a sous vide experiment, the steaks are destined for the grill, and most of the chops won’t be around by next weekend.

And, as usual, some goodies from the freebie box:

Five lovey thick slabs of fatback, soon to become delicious, delicious, lardo.

Who makes the Meat Pickup and how does it drive?

The Meat Pickup is made by the same guy who built the Pussy Wagon, but it doesn’t handle as well.

Funny how the stuff in the free box almost appeals to me more than the stuff you pay for! Happy Eating my friend!

The people from the farm know me well by now. They tell me what’s in the box before they hand me my monthly share. Sadly, their heads and trotters are always reserved for a local restaurant.
