Insta-Funday Sunday (is back!! )

I know...I know...  It's been a long time!  But I'm coming back with a vingence! 

We went out to help Nathan check his deer cameras and got an absolutely fabulous sunset in the process.  Country life at it's finest...that and praying he didn't pop one of my tires by driving through the corn field. 

Us doing our very best to stay warm (and entertained) at Daddy's football game.

Our trip to Tanners for the year!  We loved the llamas & slides...lots more pictures to be posted soon. 

At a Miss Rodeo Illinois trap shoot for the one and only Katie Perry! Got all the shotgun shells I could ever dream of.  My Pinterest brain is going crazy! 
(if you saw my Pinterest board you might see my obsession)

Be watching facebook... More pictures to be posted of this weekend festivities!

Here's the Beef...

So I'm helping my darling husband out...He/we have taken on a whole different endeavor of selling a cow a little differently.  Normally we sell them in quarters, halves & whole cows (rarely).  This time we butchered a whole cow and are selling it in cuts that people want.

Ever wanted to know how much freezer space a whole cow takes up??  A LOT!!!

Now, about our cows, you've met Ginger.  Yeah, well, she's come and gone.  But we buy our cows about 1 year old or so and we set them out to pasture.  Then they get to about the size we want them, we finish them with corn, hay & gluten.  Gluten is a corn byproduct...not the stuff that people are allergic to, but something that's apart of corn when it's broken down for other things.  Cows think it's candy and eat it like crazy.  Gives 'em the chubs.

So here's the deal...would you like to buy some beef?!?! Below I'm gonna list the cuts & the per pound pricing.  Then you can fb, call me or nate or contact me any other way and you can get some BEEEEEF!!!

Ok, here we go...
- Round Steak- $6.50/lb
-T-Bone Steak- $10/lb
-Ribeye Steak- $10.90/lb
-Rolled Rump Roast- $6/lb
-Chuck Roast- $6.40/lb
-Sirloin Tip Roast- $7/lb
-Arm Roast- $6.50/lb
-Short Ribs- $4/lb
-Stew Meat- $6.70/lb
-Beef for Swissing- $5.50/lb
-Brisket- $7.50/lb
-Flank- $7.50/lb
-Skirt Steak- $7/lb
-Filet- $17/lb
-Ground Beef- $4/lb (we have over 100lb of this so buy as much as you want!)

**Prices set off of USDA weekly beef retail activity & a trip to wal-mart to see their prices.  These prices are good for this cow. They may change when next cow is butchered**

If you are interested in any of the organ meat (i get queezy thinking about it) -- heart, liver, tongue, oxtail -- let me know and we can chat about it.

Otherwise, look forward to hearing from your,
Mrs. Lindsay Wineinger
Director of Sales at N. Wineinger Farms :)

Num Num Bloggin'

 So, I've decided I would try my hand at a VERY amateur food blog here.  (If I want to be the Midwest version of the Pioneer Woman i best get better at these.)  It was just soooo good, I couldn't not share!

And it's sooo healthy, and I really need healthy options to get back to my former hot bod...

To dedicate long periods of time to boiling/watching something on the stove is next to impossible with the girls, but I love quinoa and wheat berry and other grains so I found these Betty Crocker Suddenly Salad grain salads.

There are three different flavors and I have fallen for these two:
The Harvest Grain Salad & the Tuscan Grain Salad.

The Harvest Grain is a sweeter salad...the reason why I like it.  It has an apple cider vinegar flavored dressing and a garnish of dried cranberries & slivered almonds.  I may or may not have sat down and eaten the whole box.  Maybe,  I don't know.

Today I made the Tuscan Grain.  The dressing over the grains was more of a sun dried tomato flavor.  I was feeling saucy so I added some extras; I had some zucchini & tomatoes from the garden (I normally don't like tomatoes but these little suckers from my garden are soo sweet!) and then I shaved some Parmesan cheese over the top.  

They provided slivered almonds for this as well.  It ended up looking awesome! So colorful!

They suggested other add-ins as well like chic peas, feta cheese, grilled chicken, etc.  For the sweeter Harvest grain they suggested fresh apples or pears.  I would add a bleu cheese or something like that.  Everything is better with cheese...I mean let's get real.  

To recreate these would be a total sinch with the time.  It was quinoa, wheat berry and brown rice.  And the dressings were oil and vingar based.  With the sweet one, add apple cider vinager with EVOO and seasonings.  The Tuscan was pure`d sun dried tomatoes, lemon juice, italian herbs and EVOO.  

They held up well in the fridge (leave the almonds off and add when you eat).  The protion was also perfect because Nathan's not going to eat this...let's get serious.  So there was enough for two lunch and one dinner portion.  

Hope you ENJOY!  I sure did.
