Pool and Beef

The boys are looking good in their new speedos. They didn't like how their shorts would get stuck on the slide, so we fixed it. (the previous solution was being naked, not so great when we are in public or had friends over!) their legs were really white, but their tan is catching up to the rest of their bodies.
So we bought a cow - a half a calf. The day we got it (and loaded it in the freezer - good thing we got one for the garage!) we grilled a sirloin steak. It was as big as a dinner plate. We had it with cor on the cob, and potatoes. So good. grass fed beef is just different tasting, almost a little gamie to me, but good! And since we bought it from a local place, I talked to the owner and know it wasn't given hormones/shots/antibiotics. We also made tacos - just a different taste....fresher or something. Today we are doing an Arm Roast in the crock pot, so we will see how that tastes....but Im sure it will be good!

LOVE the speedos!! That is all Carden likes to wear in the pool. I would hate to wear those boy shorts that are all baggy and cold when you get out. I am glad that Carden picks the speedo. They look so cute in them!!! Wish we could come over and swim and eat some BEEF!!!

K, I've heard of so many people buying cows or half cows or what ever... how does that work? Your kids are adorable!

We found a site on line ( after google-ing beef in Texas) and called them and bought a half calf. The roast today was way good - but 9hours in the crock pot will do that!

We need to get a picture of Jade and Sophie together, the girls could be twins they look so similar.
