Almost all gone

With Thanksgiving approaching, the beef is almost finished. Since the last post I've made tenderloin steaks, a rump roast, and heart. The heart I sliced, floured, and fried. It was okay, but not as good as I remember mom making. It was a pain to cut up the heart. In the future I'd want it pre-sliced or perhaps roast it whole.

I have one package of stew meat remaining. There's still the lard, liver, and bones as well. When I take a holiday vacation I think I will render the lard and make mincemeat pie or something. The liver will get dried into dog treats and eventually I'll make stock out of the bones.

My BIL and I are already planning the whole pig we're getting this year....
