Who would have thought joining the Sonoma County Meat Buyers Club would be so exciting? I've been anticipating this box of meat for quite a while now, it's like when you order a pair of shoes and you just can't wait to get them or you've got tickets to a great game and you're just so excited. I don't get too excited at those things, but I'm trying to appeal to all of you and have you see just how I feel about this box of meat.
Pickup location is the Relish Culinary Adventure in Healdsburg. There was a truck with an awning set up and two shivering people doling out the meat. I told them who I was and she got my box, "So we've got a 15 pound box with ground beef, top sirloin, lamb shoulder chops, lamb some kind of cut, goat something, goat something and a chicken." And I was internally freaking out! GOAT??? All I could think was, Ian will never eat stringy goat stew, I can't get stuck with 5 pounds of goat. Anyhow, I spoke up and it got all straightened away and I ended up with:
Ground Beef - 3.3 lbs.
Short Ribs - 3.5 lbs.
Top Sirloin Steak - 2 lbs.
Pork Chops - 2.3 lbs.
Ground Pork - 1.5 lbs.
Lamb Shoulder Chops - 2.4 lbs.
I came home and weighed the box and the total box weighed 14.8 pounds. Not that I'm that concerned about it or anything, but I just wanted to know. If I'm consistently underweight, I want a free steak at the end of the year, that's all.
Some good looking meat for some recipes out of my cookbook! Which by the way, J&J...we better get cracking, the month of January is almost over!!
