Now that our granddaughter is living with us, I have to do a whole lot more parenting than grand parenting, however, at the end of the day, I’m still GRANDPOP. Therefore, when the little lady is sitting here in her Meme’s chair eating store bought jerky and telling me how much she likes the stuff her dad makes with his jerky gun, I’m forced into action. I occasionally make whole muscle jerky, as I have a nice dehydrator that I use for veggie drying, and have often considered getting a jerky gun. The gun is for making jerky out of ground meat – it’s probably not really jerky (according to Wikipedia) but rather flavored, dried, meat product (that doesn’t sound too appealing). Anyhow, Alex’s dad sent me the info on his jerky gun, gave me a good operational report, and I ordered a Jerky Blaster from Cabela’s. I love it when something happens that requires me to by a new tool. It looks like a good machine and I’ll make up a batch when the girls get home from the beach. Maybe faux jerky is something I can send everyone for Christmas – I’m sure the seven other grandkids would prefer it to toys, clothes, or cash - yeah right.
I was going to save this for when I actually made some up, but had nothing else to post about today. This way I can get a twofer – today and when I do make some.
In looking at other blogs, I’m going to have to figure out how to add some other stuff to my blog page – it'll give me something to do on cold rainy (it rarely snows here) winter days.
Have a great day
