Piggie time!

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.

10lbs sausage
6 packages pork chops (usually two to a package)

4 pork roasts (I forsee some pulled pork this summer!)
