So, the company that we order our meat from, Thundering Hooves, has gotten their hands on some Bristol Bay Sockeye Salmon. They are offering it at $9.99/lb. The catch? It comes, frozen, in 17.6 lb box at a cost of $176

Now, this is a GREAT deal, but there is no way Sean and I can eat this on our own. Anyone want to split with us? We'll take care of ordering and pick up, you just help with the cost and the eating of all that tastiness.

From Thundering Hooves' Website
Bristol Bay Sockeye Salmon 17.6 lbs.
Available for a limited time only! Sustainably-caught by family-owned, Seattle-based Snopac, this wild Alaskan Sockeye salmon from Bristol Bay can be simply grilled with salt and pepper or saved for a salmon chowder to warm you this winter. The salmon is priced to you at $9.99 per pound and arrives in an 8kg frozen box (17.6 lbs.) with approximately 10 fillets at 28 oz. each. If freezer space is tight for you, consider sharing this opportunity with friends and splitting the box.

Offering this wonderful salmon at a good sale price is part Thundering Hooves' new program to seek out other locally-based, environmentally-sustainable producers of quality food.

Let me know what you decide and then we can figure out how we want to split. Kat and Kris are interested too, so we can go less than halfsies if you want.

Kris and I would be up for splitting. We'd be open for multiple ways of splitting.

Excellent, once we know if Mike and Leigh want in as well we can figure out exactly what we are doing.

Okay at this point I need to know how much people are up for.

I know MIke & Leigh want 1/3 of a box. I would like at least 1/3 of a box, though I would not object to 1/2. That leaves Kat, Kris, Wendy. I can get two boxes and people may get a bit more fish, or one box and people end up with not so much.

Let me know how much you want and I 'll do the math. PLease let me know ASAP, we need to have the order in no later than Monday.

Ordered one box of ~10 fillets for this coming Saturday. Erring on the cautions side, since we don't have quite enough orders for two boxes and tonight is the order deadline for this Saturday. We can get more boxes in two-week intervals.

From the conversations, assuming 10 equal filets, it sounds like the distribution would probably be close to:
* [ profile] fireballof3: 3 fillets = 5.3 lbs
* [ profile] lithera: 2 fillets = 3.5 lbs
* [ profile] algol: 2 fillets = 3.5 lbs
* [ profile] trilliumgrl: 3 fillets = 5.3 lbs
