We Split a Cow

Which vegetarian has two meat-based posts in the last week, 20 pounds of beef in my freezer, and two thumbs?  This girl.  (Am I supposed to post a picture of me pointing to myself with my thumbs here?  Sorry.  Just a picture of 20 pounds of local, humanely raised beef).

My brother's friend Mary (from ReThink & this post) emailed me a month or so ago about splitting a cow with her.  Or, more accurately, splitting a quarter of a cow.  Mary and her husband are committed to eating local, non-processed foods as much as possible (something Jesse and I are also working towards) and found a local farm that sells pasture-fed, antibiotic and hormone free meat.

Although I've been a vegetarian for 21 years, Jesse enthusiastically eats meat and I haven't been able to convert him yet.  I'll spare you my vegetarian propaganda (this isn't that kind of blog), but I will say that  I would rather Jesse eat meat that was raised humanely than your run-of-the-mill supermarket factory farm meat.

I think I'll start with beef cubes and a simple crockpot recipe.  Any ideas?

Oh, and my portion came with a bone for one lucky Basset Hound.  Since Fred always steals Tillie's treats, I think I'll give this to her first since Fred will inevitably take the bone and hide it anyway.

Stay hungry!
