You used "honeycomb" as a verb.


I think I love you.

Hey-- burnt crunchy bits are the highlight of any meal. Good job on salvaging your supper!

I miss broccoli. Hopefully, once 90% of vegetables no longer make me gag when I look at them, I'll be able to bring it back in my life.

Basically if it involves tomatoes and mozzarella, I'm in. I think I could live off of mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, and balsamic vinaigrette, especially if you add some crusty bread. MMMM.

Went to Safeway last night and got this delicious custard tart in a chocolate lined shell with sliced fruit on top. On sale for VDay. The best part about this "holiday" is all the delicious desserts and sweets on sale.


Also, while I was there, I discovered that Safeway sells bison. I need to think of a way to incorporate this into dinner.

If it means I get delicious desserts on sale, then yes, Valentine's Day is okay by me.

I've never cooked bison, although I did once have a bison steak while on vacation. I believe it can be used almost interchangeably with beef; bison is supposed to be lower in fat and cholesterol than beef. The flavor is similar, although I found the bison to be overall more tender and slightly gamier-tasting than an equivalent cut of beef would have been. If it counts, I had a strip steak with macaroni and cheese, cider glazed brussels sprouts, and a Syrah gastrique. Um, probably it'd be just as good with a side of mashed potatoes, green beans, and sauteed onions.

Any excuse to get dessert for less than normal price is okay with me.

The bison at Safeway is pre-ground, though. Bison burgers? Bison meatballs?

And stop, you're making me hungry. D:

Oh, yeah, pretty much any way you use ground beef you can use ground bison, although probably I would recommend against trying it in, like, Hamburger Helper. Burgers are a good bet, but I'd probably do a nice shepherd's pie with it.

I am considering making these cookies that involve Rice Krispies and Crunch bar bits inside them today. We'll see how ambitious I'm feeling.

On topic of buffalo/bison meat, I feel so lucky to have a bison ranch near my house. (It's the Wolfe Island Bison Farm). Free-range natural bison meat, and they have it in various cuts. Expensive as hell, though.

...and when one militant pussy vegan I knew got all bitchy over how "bison couldn't possibly be domesticated for food"...I showed her the place and where they were contendedly grazing in their field. Shut her right up.

Ive had Bison jerky before. Pretty good. Oh yeah, and bison stew.
And elk meat. That was pretty good. I was visiting family in Montana, they catch and eat their own elk. Weird, but it was good.

I need to try elk. And venison, but that's happening this year since one of my Dad's friends is a pretty avid hunter (duck, deer, and occasionally moose). I've had wild duck, and I have to say, next time I'm buying one when I want duck for dinner. It was the TOUGHEST meat I had EVER chewed through. Like, I practically needed a hacksaw to get through it. I was also scared of accidentally biting into the shot if he'd left any... X_XU

Yah. Lately I've been on a "Must try all forms of wild game" thing. One gets pretty damn sick of chicken, turkey and pork after so many years. (I actually can't eat beef in any large amount. It gives me awful indigestion. Smallish amounts of bison, though, seem to be okay.)

As for me, I'm morally opposed to salad.
I've been trying to convince my mom that I'm allergic to green food. She's been sneaking vegetables into my food where I can't see it, and then triumphantly proclaiming that I just ate green, so I can't possibly be allergic to green, so I have to eat vegetables, because they're green and she just proved that I'm not allergic to green. Sometimes my parents' immaturity gets to the point of insanity XD

I've tried elk before. Granted, it was elk jerky that a friend of mine made and then brought on a hike to share, but it was pretty good.

My favorite meat is definitely lamb. I just like the taste better than any other type I've tried.

I had venison once. It was quite lean and tender, but not my meat of choice. Anything with a distinctly gamey taste is not for me; I have a tenuous relationship with meat as it is.

I've known a couple of people who apparently were able to subsist off of chicken fingers and fries without welcoming vegetables into their lives, but I'm pretty sure it's not a sustainable lifestyle. Don't know how old you are, but I definitely found my tolerance for veggies increased with age, probably because all my taste buds are dying. Also, I have learned how to properly cook vegetables so they do not taste like chlorophyllic butt. Can't really blame your mom for "hiding" them on you-- vegetables are really important in keeping you healthy. I won't lie, most days I'd rather eat a grilled cheese than a salad, but it couldn't hurt to experiment with different veggies prepared in different ways until you find something you enjoy.

Worse comes to worse, give Mom a copy of that Deceptively Delicious book or something like that. Ignore the intermittent text because it's kind of irritating and pretentious, but give some of the recipes a try. I loathe cooked spinach and therefore did not believe it was possible to put spinach in brownies and eat them without puking, but I WAS WRONG.
