Why Meat is Good for the Family
Posted by tackezog on 09/09/2008 (1164 reads)

I love meat. Not for the reasons one usually touts...it tastes good, it is good for you. No, I love meat because my family loves meat.

Dinnertime is usually comprised of frozen pizza and canned fruit, not the most fascinating dinner. This combination usually leads to kids jumping around the table, milk being spilled and a general disinterest in family bonding.

When my husband cooks meat, whether it is grilled, slow cooked, or baked- something happens to my family. We actually turn into a civilized group with table manners. We talk about our day and laugh...not argue. It is wonderful, how a family can communicate over steak and potatoes. To quote my awesome husband, "a family that eats meat together, stays together." He is a pretty smart guy.

What do you call a vegetarian with diarrhea?

A salad shooter.

Vegetarians Have Their Meat and Eat it Too!
Posted by Angus on 08/29/2008 (1096 reads)

I recently came across an article written by Christine Lennon in "Food & Wine" magazine that I couldn't stop reading. Christine wrote about her husband and several of their friends who had recently tossed off their vegetarian ways and began eating meat again. It seems that this is a growing trend in many areas of the country. Christine's group, like many others, has jumped on the "grass fed" beef band-wagon.
Grass fed beef has become the new "in" thing with many Hollywood types and is becoming more and more available nationwide and for good reason! It's simple! Grass fed beef is GOOD for you! That's right GOOD for you. It's also better for the cattle. Cows are left to graze naturally in green pastures instead of warehouses.

Coming SOON! Another Free T-Shirt for ME!
Posted by dirtykalb on 08/28/2008 (1253 reads)

 So, I'm moving this weekend. Which means that jjns will probably win the shirt. I do, however, feel it important that I mention a future review that will be available for your pleasure.
My new abode is surrounded by bars, one of which will become my temporary monday home.
I will go to this bar, eat all the bacon I can and tell you about it in the most interesting way I can. Probably a mix of song and or dance.

Oh, and if for some reason this never happens.... I still win right?

Meat-Shirt Contest Not Really Even Close...
Posted by Angus on 08/28/2008 (1273 reads)

Well, this month's contest for the coveted Meat-Shirt has almost come to an end. It has been a heated battle thus far between just two of our loyal members. Early on dirtykalb and jjns23 were running pretty much neck and neck with kalb holding a slight lead. But, in a flourish of article and recipe postings, jjns23 has taken a commanding and, dare I say, insurmountable lead. There are just a few days left. Who will be this month's champion? Keep checking back to see.

Here are the totals so far (sorry kalb comments DON'T count):

jjns23 - 19 articles posted

dirtykalb - 14 articles and "babes" posted

Powah to the Trudgemank? (A.K.A. J.S., I'm Still Winning)

 OK, this has absolutely nothing to do with meat. Other than the fact that there is a random steak floating throughout the entire video.

What's Your ULTIMATE Meat?
Posted by Angus on 08/26/2008 (1285 reads)
Whatever!

We were sitting around the other night doing what we do every night, drinking rum and talking about meat, when an interesting question came up. We were trying to decide what would be considered the ULTIMATE MEATATARIAN MEAT. Would it be a giant T-Bone or maybe a a thick, juicy burger? Maybe a Rib Eye or even a whole chicken? We came up with what we think is the meat of meats now we want to know what you think! Let us know what YOUR ultimate meat is and why. Heck, you may even win a prize!

We'll post our ULTIMATE meat and pick a winner by the end of the month.

As always...keep it clean and all decisions are final.

Meat Facts...
Posted by jjns23 on 08/26/2008 (1087 reads)

Did ya know that beef is the most consumed source of protein in America? Team meat is still in the lead!

Here are some other meat facts for the day courtesy of Scooter Bay:

  • A 1,000 pound Angus steer yields 465 pounds of retail beef cuts from a 600-pound carcass: 25% are steaks, 25% are roasts, 25% is burger and ground beef, 25% is lost due to fat, bone and shrinkage.
  • The beef you buy today is 27% leaner than it was 20 years ago.
  • You would have to consume five 8 oz. glasses of milk and three 4 oz. cans of tuna to get the same amount of zinc found in 3 oz. of beef.
