Then HB and I with the help from a friend got the last cow butchered and put to hang in the cooler. We were also give 6 meat birds about 2 weeks ago from a person who could not bare to butcher them, we did this at the same time. The only problem with doing all this this morning was that it was a bitter -28 out there. It sure felt good to take breaks and come and warm up by the stove.
We finished shortly after lunch and came in and I made up sandwiches,and left over pasta salad. I think I am beginning to warm up now.
Yesterday the girls and I went into the town to pick our grocery items for the next couple of months. Yes I said months. With the cold weather here, it is almost impossible to leave the house for more then a couple of hours. The roads have become hard to drive on and very slippery. The plows go only once to twice a day now for the bus. So we try not to go out as much.
We do go out just not as far into the town unless it is a really nice day and someone is around the house.
While we were out getting grocery we found a couple new kitchen items that I needed to have. the first was a new stock pot. This pot is great and I already used it today to cook the chicken in and pasta for the chicken spaghetti that I made for supper.
I just love this pot as it has a little hole at the top to release steam and prevent over spilling. I got this for $17.
The other is a new juicer as my old one had stopped working a little while back and we all missed it so very very much.
This was a little more expensive then I thought it would be but it is what we wanted. This juice extractor was $60.
I try not to think of the price as we get so much good out of using this.
Like I said tonight's supper was chicken spaghetti, we are having green garden salad with garlic bread.
The weeones will be home any moment now and they will be starving so I better go get things together. I missed them so much and can't wait to see them.
Take care and stay warm.
