Our hog half is finally ready to be picked up, so DH and I will be going down on Saturday to pick it up. DH was invited to go salmon fishing on Saturday, but he had to decline. It's a little bit of a bummer, but the only other option was to take time off from work to go and he is too slammed to do that.
I am thinking about making it a date for DH and myself and going to Outback for a meal. I miss Kookaburra wings so I would eat that, the veggies it comes with, some rye bread, and a sweet potato on the side. DH would probably get a steak. Or I could just buy some of that on sale steelhead trout, some sweet potatoes, some rye bread, and pick some zucchini from the garden and still not have spent as much as at Outback and feed four people instead of two. We will at least be in the car along for the 40 minute drive there and the 40 minute drive back.
DS and I will need to go through the freezers tomorrow and make things more compact and throw out anything with freezer burn and of course take out anything that needs to thaw out for dinners for the next few days, preferrably large things that take up a lot of space. It shouldn't require a ton of space, but I want to make sure enough is cleared. I don't think there will be much that is freezer burned, since we went through two of the three freezers a month ago.
I'll do a break down of the cuts I got, the final price, and the hanging weight once I know it all. I've paid for the meat, just waiting on the cut and wrap fee until I get there.
