I have my add on items … bread, teriyaki beef jerky and a salted caramel-pretzel crust brownie. OH! And, eggs from Lahontan Farms that are somehow not in the photo. This is a new thing on the basket share for me. The weekly add-on items change and you order them in advance. Fun, local, yummy stuff!
This week includes the beef share. It was a full cooler load from York’s Meats in Fallon.
The packages range in portion size but included top sirloin (x2), rib steaks, chuck steak, carne asada (x2), ground beef (x5), and chuck roast.

What I try to do is pack the fridge with easy dinners for the week and lunch ideas to keep us from eating out or having junk food. I was on it today. ON IT. I managed to try three new recipes, clean and prep a ton of veggies and we actually had homemade breakfast, lunch and dinner. I am SUPER CHEF! (taaa–daaaa!)
