I braved the cold for the monthly meat CSA pickup, which was strangely devoid of people. Maybe I showed up at a lull, but this was the first time ever that I was able to walk up and grab my bag with no wait. In fact, the Stillman’s folks saw me getting out of the car and had my share ready by the tine I reached their truck. It makes me wish they deleivered, but then I’d never have the opportunity to browse through the boxes of odds and ends they like to give away.
This share included ground beef, loose breakfast sausage, pork chops, a T-bone steak, a whole chicken, and lamb rib chops. I added smoked pork chops (a favorite ofÂ He Who Will Not Be Ignored) and bacon ends: random chunks of slab bacon that I will use to flavor red beans and rice or might cook like pork belly.
