Short version: Beef, rice, green salad with ranch dressing
Long version: I pressure-canned a bunch of pinto beans in the morning, so I decided to put the pressure canner/cooker to work again before washing it and pressure cooked a lot of beef ribs, ox tail, and soup bones to make stock. And to get those bulky bony things out of the freezer so there's room for the new cow we're getting next month.
I pulled all the meat off those bones and fried some of it in tallow with spices for dinner.
The rest of dinner was pretty easy, because I had been in the kitchen all day and I was tired.
Short version: Barbecue beef, rice, raw green beans or salad
Long version: We were at our monthly Saturday Mass, which meant we didn't get home until 5 p.m. Dinners are always quick on these days. More of the beef, this time just mixed with barbecue sauce. More rice, with butter. And the children had the raw green beans, while A. and I had salad.
Short version: End-of-garden-season feast, pots de creme
Long version: With the first freeze forecast for Monday, I spent much of the weekend harvesting and dealing with the last of the things from the garden. That included dill, parsley, basil, lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, green beans, beets, carrots, and potatoes.
