Box o' meat status

A coworker asked how far along I am in my big box of meat, and so now my brain is distracted with taking an inventory.


  • 1 pound ground turkey (used in the meatloaf)
  • 2x lemon-pesto salmon fillets (prepared as provided)


  • Wild boar hot dogs (2 of 7 consumed)
  • Five-pepper sausage (1 of 4 consumed)
  • Dill smoked salmon (halfway consumed)
  • Tenderloin tips and tails (thawing to make mushroom beef stew)

Not yet started:

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • Chili relleno pork sausge
  • Venison hot dogs
  • 1.25 pounds of flank steak

Reviews so far:

  • The ground turkey is the best I’ve ever had. Good and moist with a decent flavor and texture, much better than any of the stuff I’ve ever gotten from the grocery store.
  • The lemon-pesto salmon fillets were good but I wouldn’t get them in a future box since they’re the exact same “My Fish Dish” product that’s sold at the grocery store for the same price (and is often on sale for a lot less).
  • The wild boar hot dogs are good. Smoky and peppery. The texture is a bit beef jerky-esque which some might find offputting. The flavor is sort of like a milder version of a Slim Jim? But in the best way possible.
  • The five-pepper sausage is really spicy. Fortunately I am really into spicy. It also has a good flavor underneath the spice.
  • The smoked salmon is pretty good. But I’ve had better stuff from the local farmer’s market, so again, probably not something I’ll repeat from any future box (if I do this ridiculous thing again).
