Okay, so I mentioned before that we are getting our side of beef in about a month. I updated my inventory in the meat freezer and rearranged, so I have about 5 cubic feet right now freed up. I need to free up about 1 more cubic foot. I have 38lbs. of very lean ground beef from a steer butchered over the summer and I have 16lbs. of sausage. I also have lamb, fish, a couple of roasts still from the butchering a year ago (plus one that will be for supper tonight), 4 whole organic chickens (plus one that will be Sunday dinner) and 26 chicken breasts.
Working with these meats, I need some yummy ideas for getting rid of about 10 - 15 lbs. of meat over the next month. This feels like a chore and I am totally uninspired even though I love to cook. Any ideas? Last gasp effort will be to can the chicken and beef, but I already have dozens of pints and don't really need to add because we rotate those less often.
I have absolutely no room at all in my other two freezers, so I can't move this stuff around. Help!!
