This Is Why You Buy Meat You Can See Through The Wrapper

Preface to this blog.  I have bought this type of pre-packaged hamburger that you buy  blindly because you can't see the product inside and it's been fine.  However, this time I was surprised to see what can only be described as a large amount of coagulated fat.  Last time I buy what I can't see.

Liver With Soy Sauce (For Those That Don’t Like Liver)

First off, I am NOT a fan. Never have been, but my mom felt she needed to serve liver and would try to make it different ways to make it taste better. Maybe it was the consistency of the meat, I don’t know. I remember being at Old Country Buffet years ago and piling on a huge spoonful of stuffing on my plate. I love stuffing, but this had a “just not right” taste to it. When I asked, I found out it was made from chicken livers. BINGO! I’m not sure if people even serve liver anymore, but if you do and are trying to get someone to give it a try, maybe this recipe will help.

Why Make A Vegetarian Burger That Bleeds?

I have several friends that are either Vegan or Vegetarian.  Yes, there's a difference.  My friend that is a vegetarian will still eat some fish and shrimp and I always know I can toss a salad her way and she'll be good.  However, when I cook for my friends who are Vegan, it is a bit more difficult.  But, why in the world would either of them want to eat a non-meat burger just because it actually bleeds like a real burger patty?  From what I've seen that just makes them cringe.

Wisconsin Department of Health Warns Against Eating Cannibal or Tiger Meat Sandwiches, WHAT? [VIDEO]

It's not what you think.  It's neither human or tiger flesh that makes up these sandwiches, it's raw hamburger or horse meat.  Yes, horse meat and apparently is popular in the state of Wisconsin.  I've never seen it on a menu, but I have heard of steak tartare.  Wisconsin's Health Agency brought this to our attention with a warning against eating raw or under cooked meats.

How Long Do You Think You Can Keep Meat In The Freezer Until It Goes Bad

I'm skeptical.  I'm the kinda girl that has a three day limit on leftovers.  I ran out of salami and hummus, my two staple lunches so I dug around in the freezer and found a package of fully cooked brats.  While I was putting that and a tortilla (that's what I was going to use instead of a bun) I noticed the expiration date and wondered if I should just go hungry.

With the Holiday Season almost here, i thought I'd share a tradition I celebrate each Thanksgiving. Having a good bit of English blood in me, I tend to go for the plum pudding, blood pudding, cakes and so forth. However, and absolute must on Thanksgiving is mince pie.
