Redneck Shopping List

This is how much of a redneck I've become: my shopping list for today? A case of beer, propane, and bullets.

It's goat slaughtering day. Our friend C. is here with his family, and all four baby goats are meeting their end today. One will be cooked up for the taco feast later on, one will go home with C. as his pay, and the other two will go in the freezer.

At this point, we've done this enough times that I no longer feel the need to take a bunch of pictures and post about the process. I've listed some related posts which do have photos and musings if anyone cares to get the details.

That is funny about your shopping list... I've had those kinds too.

You crack me up girl! Honest, I laughed out loud on this one -from one redneck girl to another...Good luck with the processing! My shopping list today: stop at the grocery store, stop at the liquor store, stop at the feed store and not in that order of priority.

Here in Texas, our list always includes the same things. Funny. And, the goat stuff makes me cringe, but I eventually want to have some goats and I better learn EVERYTHING. One day, I'll be processing our own chickens and that is something I'm actually really determined to learn to do myself. I'll have to read thru your older posts when I get more time to be still!!
