The good Lord blessed us with deer this weekend. It made or a busy, productive and thankful weekend.
I package things in pretty big packages since there are six of us in this house.
Here is the breakdown so far:
Roasts - 4 packages, 7 pounds
Jerky meat - 1 package, 2 pounds
Back strap - 2 packages, 3 pounds
Stew meat - 4 packages, 5 pounds
Grinder meat 1 package, 2 pounds
(This will be made into sausage/summer sausage/ground venison later on.)
Roasts - 2 packages, 4 pounds
Backstrap - 3 packages, 5 pounds
Steaks - 1 package, 2 pounds
Stew meat - 8 packages, 8 pounds
Grinder meat - 1 package, 6 pounds
Jerky strips ready to marinade - 1 package, 2 pounds
The guys field dress them before they bring them home and then skin and quarter them and then I take over processing and packaging. They kept me busy this weekend!
Not counting left overs, that's 28 meals in the freezer, almost 50 pounds of meat. It's a GREAT start to refilling the freezer and while I'm tired, I'm very happily tired.
