It is the Monday after the Saturday butchering and as usual I spend the morning washing and freezing the chickens. Being that these were was past prime butchering time they were quite large and most packs would only hold 2 leg quarters!
Once finished the pile of poultry on the counter made me feel very wealthy. We have squirreled away plenty of meat for the winter. The pantry is looking pretty full. Life is good!
I saved this perfect looking hen for a special meal. I plan to stuff and slow roast it. Yum!
