My freezer is full again. Crowd Cow strikes again. (As always, click that link for $25 off your first box!)

This month’s haul:


Mostly unchanged from how it was a few weeks ago. The final inventory is:

  • 1lb Tenderloin Tips and Tails
  • 12oz Chili Relleno Pork Sausage
  • 6oz Copper River Smoked Sockeye Salmon, Lemon Dill
  • 12oz Five Pepper Pork Sausage
  • 4oz Hanger Steak
  • 2x 8oz Flat Iron Steak
  • 12oz Kielbasa
  • 9oz Fully Cooked No Sugar added Spicy Breakfast Patties
  • 2x 6oz Sesame and Seaweed Teriyaki Wild Sockeye Salmon
  • 1lb Sirloin Flap
  • 2x 1lb Ground Beef

Total cost: $109.19

This should last me another 2-3 months.

Also Crowd Cow provided some pretty great recipes. I’m looking forward to trying their flat-iron steak suggestion, for example.

In a total sign of the times, my meat box arrived the same day as one of my neighbors' veggie boxes.


I’d be interested in checking that service out too except in my experience, veggies don’t keep for very long, and I can only eat so many onions and radishes in a day. Meat at least has the advantage of being vacuum-packed and frozen and will keep for a long time. So, I don’t know about my neighbors, but I’m generally much better off just going to the grocery store to buy vegetables on a weekly basis.

(That said, why the heck is nobody carrying fennel right now?!)

EDIT: Oh, turns out Sun Basket is yet another meal kit delivery service. Having tried Blue Apron and Hello Fresh, I’m pretty much over that concept. Give me ingredients and make them better and cheaper than the grocery store. Don’t sell me overpriced, overpackaged piles of stuff that I can’t be creative with.
