Legislators take a break from destroying California to endorse “Meatless Monday.” Nanny Bloomberg heads west. Anyone living in LA, take a look at NYC to see what your city’s response to a disaster will be like. Your gubbermint will be too busy monitoring your diet to do the marginal things like helping you get food, fuel and shelter. Soon the only meat in California will be in the political class’ heads.

I have been accused of eating my steak so rare, a good vet could bring it back to life…..Guilty as charged.

That is really the only way to eat it if you are going ot get all the nutrients and of course the flavor, if it is a good steak that is to say the cow was happy and living free and eating free and well.

I’m guilty of cutting a piece of raw meat off a roast or steak and eating it when I’m making dinner.

RobertW

i’ve heard tell how the mongols a-horse would put meat under the saddle, ride all day, then eat the meat. apparently it was tenderized and heated enough to be considered cooked. I’m not sure how much veracity attends this anecdote, but the tenderizing part sure seems likely.

I prefer some fire touches my beef if for no other reasons than the flavor being enhanced and and the fat being de-solidified.

JPTravis

No matter what you put under your saddle, after a whole day on a horse your meat will be tenderized.

After a day of rocking a 1,200 pound rocking horse, my entire body is tenderized.

I thnk my neice is going to make me a (let me see if I can get this right) houpelander dress for our ren faire. For the one at church, I will make it into a period nun’s habit, then b using a different headdress and a belt, I can make a regular dress out of it! I’m really excited!

Stopped in an Indian Buffet in Fresno after teardown at last weekend’s Renfaire, had three kinds of chicken, and some goat. Next Monday I’ll fire up the smoker.

CO2Insanity

Goat? Ewwwwww!

sa_rose
Member

Goat is yummy! Best done over the smoky grill. Yummmmm. And if not for rregulations regarding livestock in the city limits, you could own a goat, have a kid for eating every now and again, fresh wholesome milk daily and never have to mow your lawn again!

RobertW
Member

not to mention reducing one’s reliance on the garbage truck service.

flashingscotsman
Member

Mmmm, goat meat is awesome, and fresh goat milk is even better. Personally, I don’t understand America’s fascination with beef.

The buffet we went to was in a little strip mall in Fresno. We never would have found it without Yelp. I love that app.

RobertW
Member

ok, 1st, beef generally carries more fat, more fat, more flavor, the milk produced is different though, Also, I think it’s easier to herd cows than goats, though goats are more fun to mimic. And they climb trees, when they’re not chasing little children up trees simply because some mean spirited juvenile delinquents used to torment and tease them in some manner when the goat was owned by someone else who had a herd just to keep the scrub brsh down in an undeveloped plot of land that the mean kids went by on their way to the corner circle k to get cokes and what not and took the opportunity to do whatever they did to poor Wendy, whose respect I finally gained days after being chased up the tree by engaging in a headbutting contest (something one should never engage in with a cow) which i won. better than goat any day of the week. especially because goats are easier to form emotional attachments to than cows, the Walton’s propaganda notwithstanding.
but that may just be me.
2nd. I was trying to find out if you went to an American Indian buffet, or one from a people of the Indus.

sa_rose
Member

Part of the issue with goats is that they will eat ANYTHING, not just what you think is appropriate. Also they are very smart (sometime smarter than their owners) and are true excape artists. Sometimes your neighbors don’t WANT their award winning roses “trimmed.”

flashingscotsman
Member

When I was with my ex-wife, we raised goats. Some for meat, some for milk. A couple were pets. Their favorite treat, even better than cardboard, was mulberry leaves.

Well, that and sweatshirt sleeves.

Wait, let me guess, allergic to ‘shrooms? Black olives?

No,…tomatos, but I eat ’em anyway a pay for it later!…sounds like yours is just like the boy scouts. Yum-o

Oh, {_}3 made a fresh 12 pot so you could get this fixed.

Oh, thank you, gonna need it too cuz the coffee at the garage is nasty!

ps stare the garage dude in the eye so he knows you aren’t one to fool with.

Every mechanic they have knows who I amand address me by my first name as soon as they see me. Not one will give me a bit of trouble, in fact they have never even suggested that there might be something wrong with my van that I wasn’t already aware of. They like to comment on how I’m one of the few female type persons who can go in there and actually discribe what the problem is rather than just saying well some thingy is making a funny noise.

And since I have all day I think I will go ahead and ask them to change the timing belt too…I noticed it had some cracks in it (from dry rot I think)…can’t have that break as I’m driving down the road!

goat is good. cabrito esta muy delicioso, y tamale con cabeza de cabrito. We raised goats, primarily for milk, and let me tell ya, fresh goat is the bomb, more flavor, more cream. but find a local supplier, don’t go for the nasty pasteurized mixed crap, that stuff is naaaaaaasty.

Speaking of His Nanniness. I saw somewhere over the weekend where a guy who had been doing it on his own for a long time (years), using his own vehicle & gas, would make the rounds twice a week of bakeries & restaurants to pick up ‘day old’ bagels to deliver to homeless shelters and food pantries.

With the new regs he had to stop. Because the city didn’t have enough inspectors to check for sodium etc content. No joke. So now the stuff goes in the trash, go figure.

And can nss or somebody who lives there explain this to me?

sa_rose

Yummmm! I envy you. We have Dominoes, Puzza Hut and Papa John’s. We have a few other places, but they are far from me and do not deliver. I was just thinking the other day, we don’t have enough Italians here. Some, but we need like a little Italy where we can get some decent Italian food, some Italian Markets, Bakeries, etc.

poppajoe49

Rose, if you live in the Lackland area, there is a good Italian place down there. The guy is from CT, if the place is still there, it’s been 27 years.

sa_rose

Are you talking about the guy on Hwy 90? we used to go there when I was in high school. It was a little drive (our neighborhood is off Bandera/410) but waas so good it was worth it. I think it is gone.

poppajoe49
Member

I’m not sure about the rd, I just remember it was a bit East of the Lackland/Kelly area. The name is Colonna’s, which my feeble old mind just remembered.
I looked them up and apparantly they closed the location I went to, but are now open off Loop 410 in Helotes.
They made their own sauce and dough, everything else they had shipped in from Lisanti Foods in NJ.

sa_rose
Member

There used to be a Colonna’s near 410 amnd eves and their pizza was AWESOME! When I worked L&D at the county hospital we used to all pitch in a couple of dollars and order pizza and share it. I could never eat more than 2 slices! It was amazing! I think the sauce may have had some chianti in it!

RobertW

flash, the honey topping was after.

sugar on top pre-baking sounds a good idea.

i was just so hungry i had to use what was available.

later on i boiled some sketti and simmered a carrot and yella onion in swanson’s condensed chicken broth, salt and sugar. then strained it an topped the sketty with it, then put some ranch dressing on. turned out not bad.

sa_rose
Member

Try spinkling granulated sugar on the top before baking. Or leave them plain and eat with a little jam. My recipe is the same as yours except only calls for 1/4 c. of butter. Shortbread is generally not as sweet as a cookie. I’ll look around and see what else I can find. I found a recipe that takes 1 poub n of butter, 1 cup of sugar, and 5 c flour. And another that uses 2 cuops butterm 1 cup packed brown sugar and 4 1/2 c flour. Happy baking!

flashingscotsman

You can always put the honey on it AFTER cooking it. It works wonders. I think I’ll have a PB&H sammich for lunch, now that I think of it. We just bought a big jar of local pomegranate honey. It’s yummy.

RobertW
Member

lol awesome y’all

i’ll have to wait for the 3rd for more butter, anyway, i topped it with some honey and that helped but… well, honey can be too overwhelming.

thanks for the tip.

sorry poppa, KQ wasn’t available to stick her finger in the batter to sweeten it up. 😉

poppajoe49

Use brown sugar?

RobertW
Member

just cut into my homemade shortbread, mmmmm good, but it needs more sugar. I used an online recipe for basic shortbread that called for 1 cup butter, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 cups flour. I fudged on the sugar and added more, yet it’s still not sweet enough somehow.
any idea how much sugar i could put into the mix before it would become an unmitigated failure?

RobertW

actually, i was sleuthing but failed to utilize all the info you provided. Having gone back to re-sleuth the location of the pizza joint you and PJ were discussing, I find myself overwhelmed at the number of pizza places possible. Come on, throw me a bone. LOL
I’ve been SA. but i don’t know it at all well.

However, there was a gr8 movie some years back that was set in SA. I think it was the one with Gene Hackman, and ( I think) Matt Dillon, but the name eludes me.

sa_rose
Member

Yes, Robert, that’s the one. Henry THomas is from here, so that probably influenced the filming being here. He is the kid who played in the film version of the black stallion, also released in the 80″s I believe.
The location you noted is nearly perfect for the italian food place. It was just west of Rodrihuez park. THe park wasn’t there then. I think the owners died and the kids didn’t take it over, or there were no kids or something. But man they had great food at a reasonable price!

The place I was talking about on HWY 90 was not a pizza joint, but was an italian restaurant owned and operated by an Italian family. They served pizza but that wasn’t the main thing.
There have been a couple of movies filmed here, including parts of John Wayne’s Alamo, Mad Max and one mystery type in the 80’s that had great shots of the star (a young boy) traveling the River Walk and going in the Tower Life building, San Antonio’s 1st Skyscraper back in the day. There have been others, but I can’t remember them right now. I have Old Timer’s Disease!

And I don’t go into them anymore because, well, I have a tendency to express my disdain in typical Texas fashion, ESPECIALLY when it comes to food. I did find a good Dairy Queen in Van Wert, even though they used liquid malt for the choco malt. and didn’t have a hunger buster nor the dude, but, it was so much better than the DQ’s in Houston, which sucked canal water out the hind end…

Do they still have a Birra Perities (sp?) there.
They billed themselves as the Italian restaurant with the Irish bar.
I worked at the one in Dallas for awhile and we had a Gay manager, Czechoslovakian bartender, Vietnamese kitchen staff, Mexican busboys, and the other dishwasher was from Africa. Not an Initial or Irishman to be seen.

This was in the early 80’s I think.

i gotta believe that. when i lived in Houston, my Boss/Landlord/good friend Mike, a New Jerseyite, took me to a pizza place he said had *for him* homestyle pizza, and it was absolutely AWESOME! and friggin HUGE slices.

meanwhile i’m subsisting on turkey soup. made w/cabbage carrots onions, and some few spices, think i’ll go watch more survivor philippines on cbs.com that’ll make me appreciate what i DO have instead of lusting/covetting/salivating for some pizza pie. 😀

Have y’all seen that new philly cream cheese commercial with the black man and white woman in bed? Seems to me that’s kinda a sop to the white chicks that voted for barry, but what really pisses me off is they show their philly delight chocolate dip being dipped into by a pretzel. Now that is just SICK. That is waaaaaaaaaaaaay overboard, and a deliberate affront to the dignity of chocolate!
for this reason alone i’m boycotting philly cream cheese.

I have only one reason to be against interracial marriages, and that is because life is damned hard enough for children already without the added onus that will fall on the children’s noggins. That being said, the parents had best be prepared and ready to answer any racist bs society will shower upon the children. And it’s not a problem in America alone. It is global, it is deplorable that such still occurs in the 21st century.

while i’m at it, Chase bank credit card has a new ad out, a black man takes his 2 sons to lunch, and they’re having fun, but the soundtrack behind it is… The boys are back in town. and yet nobody is calling this racist, and rightfully so, why then, oh why, can a white man not say “boy” without being branded a klansman?
wtf is up with that?

We are not supposed to be vegetarians. Nor are we supposed to be exclusive carnivores. Humans are designe to be omnivores, to eat a variety of foods. That little thing in the genome has enabled us to adapt to changing environments, climates (yes, they have been changing for millenia!) and food sources. It has also enabled us to grow very large and generally smart brains. If wewould just use them now and again. I eat vegetarian meals. I am not a vegetarian. But widening yor palate to develop new tstes is a good thing,. Just don’t tell me I HAVE to do it or not do it and we will get along just fine!

I always knew the sharp and pointy teeth in front weren’t just for fighting. The mashing molars aren’t in front because that would be more for cud chewers.

Yes, omnivores are us.

My original rhetorical with mods; if we were supposed to be vegetarians why is bacon so tasty? Why would we waste all the good meat after tanning the hide for shoes, boots, jackets and cool pants? Furry ear muffs because Bunnies are delicious, too! Grazing and eating are similar, but not the same. I went on and on but removed the 2nd and third halves to reduce the size of this post. Third half.

I am what many would consider a Bible literalist, therefore; I found it interesting that I’ve visited this particular subj. before, and while it has no bearing one way or the other on what our digestive systems were designed for, (sure I agree with you completely) I thought it interesting to bring 2 specific Bible passages to the discussion, and they’re both in Genesis.
Pre-flood Gen. 1:30:
And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
post-flood
Gen. 9:1-4
Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth. 2 The fear and dread of you will fall on all the beasts of the earth, and on all the birds in the sky, on every creature that moves along the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; they are given into your hands. 3 Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.
“Just don’t tell me I HAVE to do it or not do it and we will get along just fine!” oh i so agree.
lol me being the type of person i am (rebellious and arrogant) I’ll do just the opposite of what i’m told to do, more often than not, if i think there’s a chance i can get away with it without too much pain. 😀

Yes, actually vegetarians refer to the Genesis quotes to show that we were originally vegetarian and only got permission from God to eat meat after the flood. Orthodox Jews and those who keep kosher drain as much blood as possible out of any meat, then cook it to pretty much well done, as life was considered to be contained in the blood, and was therefore not to be eaten. Gives a different take on the command “this is my blood. Drink in memory of me.”
Personally I think the Biblical story of initial vegetarianism is based in the fact that early humans were gatherers, but rarely if ever ate meat, simply because they hadn’t developed tools and unting techniques. But that’s just me.

You still don’t get it, do you?!? When Obama’s through with next four years, animals will be a new constituent group with minority status and voting rights! He’s not going to give these rights to cats and dogs though…they’ll be the new food group.

The food group that never gets to vote on its status is doomed?

I don’t care if the snow is flying tomorrow or not, the grill will be fired up. I took a nice 16 oz, bone-in ribeye out of the freezer just for the occasion.
