We went out to Denair this morning and bought a shitload of pig meat. Lisa had spotted bulk packages advertised in the paper, mix & matches of meats, different weights, that sort of thing. So we loaded up the truck and headed out to Denair, about 20 miles south of here, and ordered up their $50 Piggy Package.
It was cool, an old fashioned market with a genuine meat counter, no pre-packaged meat here. We ended up with 20 pounds of pork (4 pounds of bad-ass bacon and 4 pounds of sausage), and we also scored a couple of chickens and 5 pounds of ground beef. All that along with other stuff we bought while we were there came to about 90 bucks.
So with that and the beef already in the freezer, we're good on meat for another month.
