Why yes, I sure do things a little different than most. Yes, yesterday I dropped off a few freezer meals at my cousin’s house (she’s due any day now) to free up some space in the freezer for said piggie. Got half a pig delivered (to my door!) this afternoon.
Fit neatly in a nice pile here. I think this year’s pig was smaller than last year’s pig. Hmmm.
All the cuts/packages laid out so I could sift through them and count them. I wish my freezers looked like those beautiful pinterest ones. Buuuut… they don’t. I don’t like much empty space in my freezers, and even baskets leave some dead space (perfect for a salmon fillet! or tray of sausage links!). So no freezer photos. Just think of your grandma’s freezer, and roll with that image.
When it was all said and done…
1 ham hock
6 packages pork chops (usually two to a package)
2 pork steaks
4 pork roasts (I forsee some pulled pork this summer!)
1 spare ribs
leaf lard (left weird bag)
lard (weird bag on the right)
