A rough start to our weekend ... the blond one came home at about 7pm, slamming the front door and bolting for the bathroom, which was unusual as she normally would say hi first. We looked at each other and knew something was wrong. She had been out all afternoon and around 3pm, she got ill but could not leave earlier, so with cramps and spewing drove another 1hr home on the M5 highway in peck hour, from the city. By Saturday morning she was begging us to take her to emergency, food poisoning no, pregnant no, after blood tests for hiv, hepA & B, what ever they could think of, it became clear her appendix was about to burst. Well she had keyhole surgery at middag today! Well she's awake and giving orders again lol.
Yesterday was the day I was going to slaughter at least 10 chooks, what was I thinking, by myself 10 chooks yeh right. Needless to say nothing got done yesterday. But this morning, after my cup of coffee and breakfast, it was time to start with them chooks. I ended up doing 3 chooks, skinned them and cut into portions, man they are big chooks with very solid drumsticks and big heavy breasts. (That sound a bit like me lol) Anyway I am most impressed ... and there's still 20 chooks to go ... I need help!!!
I'd been thinking skinning them would save me a lot of work, yeh I did pluck them but not 100 per cent, and cause we are on this healthy trip around here. Minimal fat on meat and skinless chooks, that's the blond ones doing. It's been super easy, chop into portions with the cleaver, wash dry and refridgerate, and bag into meal sized packets. I got 5 good sized meals out of the 3 chooks. Even saving the back bit for chichen stock. Out of interest we passed the meat section of Woollies supermarket and chicken breast was $15 kg for organic, not sure if mine classifies as organic. Who is going to pay that?
I decided to take the day off tomorrow, to be on call to her ladyship in hospital, and to slaughter 4 more chooks first thing in the morning. George gets to do the deed while I do the dirty work. My what a team ....
Well I sure hope you all had a good weekend
