Bull calves and chickens

It snowed this morning, flurries until around 1:30pm today. Now the sun is out and the wind is stiff and it is COLD outside. Hubby and I worked together to save time and finished up on the bull calf. I'll bet it took a good 20 minutes to get the feeling back in my fingers. Now it's soaking in a little salt water, waiting for me to get around to doing the clean up on it before I grind it up. The calf was still young enough to count as veal so it should be tasty eating.

I'm pleased to say I got 7 eggs today! Now I can make something sweet to go with supper tonite!

Still no word from the coalmine, I'm a little depressed over that. I did make a couple contacts today in hopes of finding something else......

dp, and katidids, your packages are on the way!


  1. It snowed here yesterday and was windy all night ~ BLAH! Sorry your having it too.

    That meat & eggs looks mighty tasty! =)

    How much of difference is there between ground veal & ground beef? Can you make hamburgers with it? I'm clueless to veal completely.

    Congrats to dp and katidids! =)
