You know how I hate to pass up a bargain.
The local grocery store had boneless top sirloin roast in a cry-o-vac bag for $2.99/lb.
I got one of the smaller ones at $39.
I will slice this up into appropriately sized steaks, and freeze.
In other news, the wife went outside to check her roses, and came back in fit to be tied. The deer had gotten onto the patio and devoured much of her virgin plants. She was livid.
The possibility of fresh venison is becoming a closer reality.
I did not bring up the possibility of an electric fence charger (again) as she has been feeding the new batch of kitty cats. Certainly, a fence charger would zap them into oblivion.
I must keep reminding her that the deer are starving, and will nibble on anything; even “deer resistant” plants. Hell, they even munch on the aloe vera.
They have not found the nopales given to us by our pals in San Antonio…yet. Nopales are the spineless prickly pear cactus…without the cactus.
We had a rip roaring thunderstorm run through here last night with thunder and lighting for six hours. Not much rain, about an inch was what I heard in town. We’ll take it. It wasn’t even in the forecast.
Looks like the daughter is due in here Thursday for a yet to be determined amount of time. I cannot figure out why she insists on living in the RGV hellhole. Her job is shit, as they cut her hours, and she had to take on another to make ends meet.
There is talk of change.
