Here’s what we did this weekend…

I’m a country girl, raised on a farm, and proud of my roots. We do cattle and crops and all that jazz. But January means butchering time.

So while I love this view:

So, that means, they’ll be a trip to the grocery store to stock up on some beef. Or for my family, a weekend that looks something like this:

Yup, that's my dad, our farm hand, Hubs, and my brother-in-law. All "aproned" up and ready to get started.

It's a very big piece of meat. This is one quarter of the whole beef.

And sorry to those of you that might be anti-meat or those that just prefer their meat comes from only a counter at the grocery story. Please forgive this post, and check back tomorrow for something new.

P.S. Did you guys see my Friday post? I’d love to know what you think!
