The Bag Lady is taking a page from her cousin Leah's blog today and posting about gratitude.
She is grateful for the fact that she lives a rural life-style and has access to a bounty of all manner of things, but especially home-grown food. Recently, a neighbour pointed out that a fellow down the road from him had raised some pigs that were now ready for sale for slaughter. The Rancher and the Bag Lady were more than happy at the opportunity to buy pork on the hoof.
The neighbour and the Rancher hooked onto the stock trailer and picked up the pigs, then took them to an abattoir. The Bag Lady defrosted and re-arranged her deep freezers in preparation.
Soon there will be a bounty of pork and ham and bacon in the freezers, and for this the Bag Lady is grateful.
(How do you feel about meeting your meat, so to speak?)
