Almost no one else I know does their own meat. Most people go 'oh how could you! I couldn't do that...' and I"m thinking if you were born 100 yrs ago you darn sure would be!
I just completed processing my first meaties ever. Raised them from day old cute little chicks to 8 week old stinky beasts.
My poor mother thinks I've gone off the deep end. She's in NY and thinks she has to come out to AZ to fix me.
She thinks the heat has finally fried my brain.
I am enjoying this chapter of my life the most so far.
Getting more in touch with my food source and providing healthier (non antibiotic laced/hormone induced, bland) food for the family.
I can't believe that I did something Bernie hasn't yet . My husband wasn't too thrilled about the processing idea. But he did agree to be my Go-for.
Must be the Filipino in him. Kind and gentle when he wants to be . Obnoxious and cheeky at most other times.
By the way OZ - some of his family is from Cavite as well. Never heard of the place till I met him and his relatives.
I have really enjoyed the photos that you and Piggy post. It gives me a better appreciation for where & how my mother in law grew up.
She was quite private about her life. When she became a US citizen, it seemed like she left it all behind.
(although she still took care of her relatives that remained in Cavite) She was very private and proud, all 4 foot 11 of her.
