  • Re: Has Anyone Ever Bought A 1/4 Cow?

    We get 1/4 every few months (6 of us). But we don't get a front or a rear, everything is cut and divided by 4. Only fair way in my opinion to get  a bit of everything. Only complaint is that there never seems to be enough ground beer as that always goes fast. 4.05 a lb cut and wrapped last time. 154 lb quarter. 

    We also get a whole pig each spring just in time for egg season. Best purchase of the year.

    But, do they make CD holders for the Beiber?  Next time someone's getting Beiber.

    It truly amazes me what you can get for $35.

    I received my care package yesterday and after several hours of anticipation at work, I was finally able to get home and open last night.  Thank you very much to @gmac for the wonderful note and goods from Canada.  This was just in time for Canada Day celebration tomorrow!  You bet I will be tapping into those beverages tomorrow!  

    Having visited Canada many times, I got a big kick out of your selections and truly appreciate your generosity.  My daughter listened to the Celine Dion CD last night, so even that was a win!  

    My son and I used the Habanero sauce on some tacos last night and really enjoyed it.  The Saskatoon Berry syrup looks very interesting, and we might have to incorporate that into a pancake breakfast very soon.  I can't wait to try the Newfoundland Screech Rum Sauce and Veggie Blaze rub!  You gave me a ton of options with the stuff you included, so I'm still trying to process all the combinations!

    Excellent work @gmac !  I am very lucky that I was your draw, and hope that I can someday return the favor.  I am also into craft beer and would love to do a beer exchange sometime. 

    Glad it made so quickly. Hope you enjoy everything. The golf balls were from my work and were literally sitting at the back door as I packed so they got thrown in. You're lucky you didn't get a dog and an 8 year old too :)

    If I had known you were a craft beer person I would have sent a better beer but Canadian fit the theme I was going for. And for the record, Rush is the only Canadian band I actually listen to. 

    Sorry about all the newspaper. It was all I had for packing material. But you should check out some of the grocery flyers and see just how badly we are getting ripped off up here when it comes to beef prices. 

    Take care and let me know what you enjoy (and what you hated).

    So as you can see by the comment above, @UncleFred was my elf and I'm very glad he was.  Before the exchange started I got lots of questions about what I liked, my sports loyalties, my beverage likes etc.  Too bad that I wasn't home to answer any of them.  Also, I feel bad for UncleFred for having to deal with customs, cross border shipping etc.  But, he'll be happy to know I had my own pains sending to my Elf who I hope is receiving his or her package fairly soon.  

    So as you can see below, I made out like a bandit on this year's exchange.  Most exciting thing is actually the grape and pear chunks.  Can't wait to try them on some chicken as recommended for the pear and if I can track down a tri-tip, I'll try the grape.  I did NOT open the picture that was sent with the emails as I preferred to wait for the surprise.  So, below is the picture I took today of everything.  Not the worlds greatest camera on my phone.  I thought the bottle of "California Sunshine" was very cute.  Thing is, sunshine isn't really a shortage here in February, heat is the issue.  So I hope the Famous Dave's sauce is spicy enough to keep us warm too.

    Everything arrived perfectly safe thanks to the incredible compartmentalized styrofoam holder that was included (which I will be keeping for shipping beer).  The inclusion of a couple local beer was also great and I'm glad that neither the beer or the wood chips caused any sort of international incident at the border.
