Happy October, peeps!
Do you just love free stuff? No, I don't mean the usual free stuff - like "Free sticker of our company when you buy $354 worth of our product!" kind of free. I mean stuff that you actually use. Rare. Totally. I know.
But today was a hit for just that.
So it started off from a text from my hubster that he began his deer hunting season by actually getting a deer! This does not usually happen. I am glad it did, though, because the freezer was looking sad and empty. We had the last grass-fed beef roast last night for dinner and it was nothing but a sea of vegetables down there. A freezer full! What is wrong with me? But I digress. (Don't tell my hubby.) And now we'll have some meat for a while. Hooray. Much better than having to sort through the Nothing You Can Eat Anyway at the grocery store.
I go to through the usual motions today and there is a bread giveaway - people had too much and had to get rid of it before it went bad - and it's the sandwich bread we use from Trader Joe's. Dude. No way. But it was. So I got some fabulous bread!
Then, after I picked up my free-ranging eggs from the backyard chickens (not mine, someone else's), I drove past that old country spot that has wild apple trees growing to see if there were any left. DUUUUUUUUDE. There were. I totally got a bag full of rather yucky-looking but yummy tasting apples. Bring on more applesauce, baby. It is on like Donkey Kong!
Needless to say, I am happy. It is nice to be blessed with food. Thank you, God!
And now, I better go clean out the freezer and make space for the incoming meat.
Peace, love and how about frozen veg for dinner?
