Nothing is more upsetting than......

Nothing upsets me more lately than our meat departments new ground beef packaging. It's this textured hamburger crap. I cook A LOT and I LOVE hate this new way they process the hamburger. You have to pull apart all of this stringy, flingy hamburger and it cooks up terrible.





I prefer the old way of processing hamburger. See example of "nothing was wrong with this way" of perfect processing. See.....it's bulk. You plop the whole package in the pan, give it a couple of swirls of the wooden spoon and your done.



Disclaimer: I still use my wooden spoons for cooking utensils. Sue me, I'm still alive dispite what Martha Stewart says about "you'll die from salmonella" if you use wooden utensils.







What don't you like about your meat department?



Did I mention I'd rather be in Mexico right now (Our waiter Carlos)





HAPPY SATURDAY!

I don't really have a complaint about my meat department but if we're asking for things . . . I wish the butchers were younger, cuter and ready to satisfy my every whim.

We had a place that colored the meat on the outside so that it looked better - so it was read and the inside was brown.

GROSS!!!!!!
