Stocking the Freezer

This weekend has been extremely busy and extremely productive at the same time.  I didn’t realize that the two could co-exist (yes, seriously), but between the top-to-bottom house cleaning, the re-organization of the closet beneath our staircase and the pile of things waiting to go to the Goodwill, I’d say we did well.

I also took some time today to catch-up on my blog commenting.  I’ve been reading, but obviously the last few days have been kind of…hectic.  It was nice to take some time to sit on the couch, catch-up on the Food Network and process.

In totally related yet totally unrelated news, since Marcus’ employer kicks it old school, they sent him home on Thursday with a turkey for Thanksgiving.

Obviously we don’t host Thanksgiving, so that leaves us plus one bird.  13 pounds of meat would be a lot for a group to put away, much less two people.  Plus, a full-sized varmint takes up a great deal of space in the freezer.

So just like last spring, today we butchered.

Split into wings, thighs, drumsticks and breasts.  20 minutes later and we should be good to go on the meat-front for a while.

Note to self: If I’m going to do a photo shoot, it probably shouldn’t be on a no make-up day 😉

Did you have a productive weekend?

Have you ever hacked a turkey to pieces?
