You’re coming tomorrow right?


Get the big pants out and wear them over more pants and then we just need a hat, scarf and fleecey gloves. Twenty degrees, pffft.


I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers’ Market tomorrow with Red Russian kale, chard, Butterball and Carola potatoes, sweet potatoes and wheat. Parsley. I have 3 teacups left!

I’ll have our grass fed, grass finished Angus beef in these cuts: Ribeyes, NY strips, filets, sirloins,  flanks, skirt, flat iron, ground beef, stew beef, philly steak, cube steak, oso bucco,  short ribs, brisket, soup bones, liver,  eye of round roasts, bone-in chuck roasts, sirloin tip roasts and rump roast. Bologna, pastrami, corned beef & hot dogs made without added nitrates or nitrites.

We still have the ground beef special – Buy 5, Get 1 .


He wears overreach boots on the front or else he steps on his shoes with his back feet and pulls them off. So that’s why his front feet look weird here.

I do have actual photos of him from the front but they won’t load! GRRRRR!! Sitting in front of this computer every Friday comes in right under waterboarding. I’m getting a new one for Christmas because this one causes rage. My yoga teacher says it’s time to let go of things that no longer serve us 🙂 The Spinning Rainbow Wheel of Death is not serving me and I’m pretty sure all this frustration is clogging up my chakras and stuff. She would not approve.

Have you ever made Osso Buco? The fancy (fancy meaning Italian haha) term for shank cross cut; maybe you’ve been thinking of trying it? I seared off  3 of them and put them in the crock pot on Sunday, over a layer of onions, the last of my uncle’s tomatoes, then put the potatoes and carrots on top so they wouldn’t turn to mush. Added a few cups of water, bay leaf, crushed garlic, thyme, smoked paprika and let them go all day.  Fall-apart good, and at $5.50/lb,  economical. The broth gelled just like when I make bone broth. Shanks have a marrow bone so the broth is super nutrient dense.

Ok, I’ll see you tomorrow!
