Rose - skip the dinner, but go for the jerky. I love jerky. Jerky Rules! High in protein, low in fat and sugar, it's a great healthy snack (a little salty, that's all). But buying retail jerky certainly can be expensive. However, you can do it at home, even without your own smokehouse! Recipies vary, but you really get to individualize your dried meat. And there are products, too, you can order for your jerky making. Beef, pork, deer, even emu is perfect for jerky. Just remember to use the proper safe temperatures in your jerky making. Enjoy!
