Stocked and Loaded

Check out what arrived at my doorstep yesterday … a whole lot of meat from US Wellness Meats! Granted, half the order is for my dear friend, Macala, but still, it’s a lot of wonderful, high-quality meat. It’s all grass-fed, pasture-raised, hormone/antibiotic-free, and compassionately raised.

The order shipped on Monday and arrived yesterday (Tuesday). The meat was still frozen solid upon arriving, and was packaged very well to keep it cold. It was inside a silver bag with a couple dry ice packs and this bag was packed inside a styrofoam cooler. The cooler was packed inside a box.

So, what did I order? 85% lean ground beef, buffalo stew meat, beef Polish breakfast sliders, chicken drumsticks, sugar free beef bacon, flank steak, beef pemmican sticks (jerky and tallow sticks), and beef tallow (also grass-fed). Macala ordered the same things, minus the pemmican, but pork chops instead.

I haven’t had a chance to try any of the meat yet, but I’ve heard very positive reviews from some of the big-ups in the Paleo world (The Food Lovers Kitchen, PaleOMG, Everyday Paleo, etc.). I’ll keep you posted!

You know what else arrived yesterday? My Weber portable grill! I was shocked how fast it got here (I ordered it Saturday afternoon). Now, we just need to get a small propane tank and we’ll be good to go. I bet we’ll be grilling this weekend! Stay tuned.

    I love how all that stuff arrived on your doorstep all at once! I am excited for you and excited that we’ll get to hear about your new adventures. We love our Weber!! Especially when I don’t want to warm the house up with the cooking 😉

      I know, isn’t it wonderful? I’m excited to share my adventures, Jodi! You have a Weber too? I’m glad to hear that you like it. I truly can’t wait to start grilling … this weekend! Like you said, it’ll be especially handy when it’s so hot out and I don’t want to heat up the house cooking. Meat and veggies all on the grill!

        That reminds me – your new grill will love a wire mesh basket for those vegies!
