Reason #437 I'm Glad I'm Not A Dirty Hippie.

Because if I was, then the Christmas gift of a box of buffalo steaks that turned up on my front doorstep would have made me cry.

Instead it just made me hungry.

Meat: It's what's for dinner. (And breakfast and lunch, too.)

Seriously cool. Do you know if it's all grass fed?
At $5.00 a pound for ground and $20 for top cuts, it's a bargain.

Always good to get meat as a gift. Bonus if it's game meat. Oddly, up here in NY, I can go to my local supermarket and pick up vacuum-sealed, 12 oz. packs of Buffalo steaks for $7.99. One time, they mislabeled buffalo steak as angus and they had them drastically marked down to $2.00+/- for a 16+ oz. pack. Needless to say, I snatched them all up. Luuuurve it!

Ooh, I do love me some bison. Remember, rare is tastier and tenderer.

Meat - the gift that keeps on giving.

I'm not a hippy, but as a fan of bison meat, that would have brought tears to my eyes.

Very low in fat--bison is the ideal Native American health food. Blow some tobacco smoke to the four winds before and after.

The old-time hippies that communed south of the farm during the 60s ate meat, milked cows, and made their own cheese and butter. They were quite clean, too. Hope and change must have struck the proceeding hippie generations.

Peace be with you, Sister Carnivore. Did you receive some gift buffalo jerkey as well?

I was surprised by a box from Usinger's Sausage in Milwaukee today. Was too busy salivating to even think about tears :-)

Heck I ate a grilled cheese sandwhich tonight and thought it was pretty good, until I read this. Mmmm meat, gotta love it.

Hey, this is awesome: Glenn just made me realize that I have the parts and pieces for a grilled cheese sammich - with BACON! Thats great all by itself, but now that I'm on my holidays, I can sleep in til the crack of lunch and have one for breakfast. Oh cool.

Mmmmmm, bison! You need some organic horseradish to go with that? That's about equal to the button buck my neighbor gave me 3 weeks ago (I had to skin and butcher it but yours is ready to eat). Central Indiana has a bunch of bison (and elk) farms, so it's not too hard to find around here but it's still spendy. I've thought about raising bison or beefalo myself, but you have to have strong fences.

CAPTCHA: jurly - hey Blogger guy, you typo'd "jerky"!

I can't eat that delicious ambrosia for some time. We had our employee Christmas shindig today and they were serving rare-rare-rare prime rib, and I had to pass. Chicken salad with steamed carrots and a mixed salad. Oh, well. It's worth it to lose weight, I guess. I just eat vicariously (and virtually!) through the power of teh intarw3bz.

Oh, swell. W/V grabeat
