You can't beat the meat

So I took Friday off to be home for our annual meat delivery. You see, a couple of years ago, J-Mac found this farm in Chatham Ontario that sells meat from their cows direct to the consumer.

Once a year, we split half a cow with a mutual friend just before BBQ season. We run through the steaks, ribs and rouladin within 6 months and then end up being stuck with roasts, stewing beef and endless amounts of soup bones for another year.

Right now, the freezer part of our fridge is completely filled with those aforementioned soup bones and our cube freezer is literally filled to the very top with every kind of beef imaginable.

The great thing about this meat is that it already comes individually wrapped in butcher's paper. They steaks are seperated into packs of 1, the ground beef is enough for 2 people and the roasts could easily serve 4 or more. The beef is amazing quality and all of the cow's are grass fed. Check out their website for more information.

As you can imagine, showing parts of a quarter of a cow into a freezer does take some time. During that time I actually listened to J-Mac's greatest hits CD of The Mamas & The Papas. That band, one of the few american bands to have success during the Beatles' /British Invasion era, doesn't get the respect they deserve. Everyone remembers Monday, Monday and California Dreamin' and the fact that band member Mama Cass may or may not have choked on a sandwich which ended up leading to her demise.

Top 5 The Mamas & The Papas songs.
1. Twelve Thirty (Young Girls Are Coming To The Canyon)
2. I Saw Her Again
3. Words Of Love
4. Monday, Monday
5. Got A Feelin'

I probably should be writing about the whole Don Imus affair. But between, the irrelevance of Imus himself, the non stop appearances of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton on CNN, the black community overreacting, the backlash towards the hip-hop community and journalist Jason Whitlock...I can't get a handle on where I am on this issue.
