Chilebrown at home

Thursday, July 30, 2020


A scary title to a wonderful day of a Meat Adventure that Ms. Goofy and I took during these troubled times. We loaded up the Racing Honda II and put an empty ice chest in the back. We hit up three destinations of some of our favorite butcher shops. Our first stop was Lakeside Meats in Lodi. The image above is Bruce a butcher that we can call friend. Bruce remembers us from gong to Lakeside for over a decade. He invited us in back to see him in action making sausage. 

Our next stop was Lockford Meats. Lockford is famous for their sausage. We filled the chest with Dakota sausage a mild flavored meat tube that is our favorite. We had to wait inline 6ft apart of course. There is a reason for a line because of the value and quality that Lockford offers.

Our last stop was the House of Beef in Oakdale. They have a restaurant that has set up in the parking lot to adhere to the Health Departments Covid demands. We had a very nice lunch. After lunch we went inside to buy more meaty treats. Check out these Wagyu beef ribs.

To end our Meat Adventure I had to feast my eyes on  this table of pie. Oh my, I am in pie heaven. I did take home a delicious apple dumpling with a side of caramel sauce. It was great to get out of the house and stock up the Chilebrown Ice Cave. Until we meet again.
