Where's the beef?

Where's the beef? Canned into 68 pint jars! That's what we were doing the next day after getting home from Nebraska for Christmas! LaVern's sister has a couple fat steers butchered each year and she gave us the beef. The locker that she uses actually has a machine that cubes the meat up so it is ready to can. That saved alot of time for us. Still took awhile as had to process for 1 1/2 hours. My, oh my it is so good especially for beef and homemade noodles. Seems like we haven't been home much this past month. Took in the grandkids church Christmas programs and had fun with them. Went to Nebraska for a week then home for a few days and then up to Pella for more grandkids Christmas. I think we are home now for abit. Put in another full stock trailer load of oak firewood. Not sure we will need it but might as well start putting up for next year. Washed clothes this morning and hung them out to dry. I think only in the 20's today but enough of a breeze that they will dry. Hope you all enjoyed the holidays.
Someday is NOT a day of the week!!
