I was working away the other day when there was a knock on the door. I was expecting a USPS delivery, so I figured it was the mailman.
It wasn’t Clara Peller, either. (She died 24 years ago this month.)

It was a guy with a local frozen meat delivery route.
He was in luck. We are most definitely omnivores in our family – voracious ones, and we love meat along with our vegetables.
He was down to the end of his freezer, and he was willing to cut a deal to move his remaining inventory of steaks and burgers from his freezer to mine. We’ve had good success with frozen steaks before, so I was willing to deal, too.
So where’s the beef?
It’s now in our freezer! Some nice-looking sirloin strips, T-bones, filets, and 1/2-pound patties. Thank goodness we have at least three more months of grilling weather before we’ll park the grill for a few months, and set our sights on cold-weather beef cuts, like briskets, stews and roasts.
By then, I hope we’ll have cleared out enough room for me to do an overdue freezer cleanout and make room for some venison. A broad hint to all our hunting friends: we would be happy to take your excess ground deer meat for soups and stews this winter. And some venison sausage sounds pretty tasty, especially on a cold winter morning.
