I deal with chronic back pain, which has been found to be a part of a medical issue that I have on going. One of the things that adds to it is beef. I've learned that beef is a natural inflammatory, so, we have pretty much stopped eating red meat in the Davis household. Every now & then we will have a burger or meatballs, but, chicken, turkey & fish are our main meat choices.
Buying ground turkey, well, it is NOT cheap. Honestly, I would try & stock up on it when I could find it on sale or in bulk, which was seldom. But, it is what it is & ground turkey is what we use.
So, today...Dan & I were trying to decide what to do. God had blessed us this month & our budget allowed a little extra for groceries. Our Sam's club membership has expired and we were thinking we would go there, renew & stock up on some stuff. However, after talking about things we decided that we didn't really need anything big from Sam's & should just go to HEB (our local grocery) and get our groceries for the week & be done with it.
While at HEB I needed to pick up a pork roast for this week, so we were walking through the meat section...just as the meat manager was putting out whole Turkeys for $5 each. WHAT?! Well, we grabbed 3 of them. Dan had purchased a meat grinder several years back when he hunted and would grind his own deer meat. We haven't used it here in TX yet, but still have it. I am blessed that my husband is a butcher by trade. He knows what he is doing when it comes to boning out a turkey. He ended up going back to HEB & bought 8 more. So, we are putting 1 in the freezer whole and cut & ground the others into ground meat. Plus, we are making broth to freeze. All total we were able to put 83 lbs of ground turkey in the freezer & 20 Turkey Wings & approx 15 gallons of broth. Not bad for $50?!
BLESSING?! I say absolutely. We are good on ground turkey for quite a while. HUGE BLESSING! I believe that God rewarded us for sticking with out budget and not over spending at Sam's on items that we don't absolutely need at the moment. I believe God allowed Dan to be here today so that we could do this. We are marking our calendar for next November for after Thanksgiving to go & see if we can do this again. Thank you Lord for this blessing that has us well stocked for ground meat for next year!
