Delicious Is Dead and Gone!

Yep, Delicious no longer exists in my fridge. Some of the new readers are probably wondering what craziness I speak? Well, here you go...

Delicious is the name we (the meat eaters cartel) assigned to our grassfed cow we purchased last summer. Answer to the often asked we did not meet our cow. Felt since we didn't buy the whole cow meeting it was not appropriate. If I ever get to the level where a whole cow is purchased a visit and naming ceremony will definitely be called for. C'mon! That is not weird. Our knuckledragging forebearers caught their food with hand and stick. The least we 'civilized folk' can do is pay homage to the food that keeps us plump!

Last week Kristen prepared a tasty beef roast that required removing the last frozen butcher paper meat product in the fridge (I'm not counting the soup bones that will be in the freezer for some time as they are devoid of meat!). So sad, Delicious is gone!

The real question is will there be (in the tradition of many college mascots)a Delicious II? Yet to be determined. I would like to purchase more of a cow so I'm looking for anyone in the Chicagoland area interested in getting more connected with your food source. Not to mention the bennies of grassfed beef!

I am going to email my friend about this...they have three kids and live in the Chicagoland area.

If we lived in the Chicagoland area we would totally be up for sharing a cow.
