chicken hearted, I would lose my appetite and hurl on the table, very weak stomach I guess. I remember once, the last time I ordered lobster about 30 or so years ago, you had to pick it from the tank in the lobby. I just told the waiter to bring me a small one, very small. A few minutes later the waiter came to the table with a napkin draped over his arm, he got my attention and lifted the napkin and here is this lobster with his taped claws, feelers and beedy eyes just looking at me. I told the waiter cancel the lobster order and bring me a medium rare steak, and if you bring the cow to the table, I am out of here. Never ordered lobster again.

Problem here wasabi. I could not look a pig in the eye and send him to this death. You pick him out and I will see him when he is lifted from the hole in the ground with the bannana leaves and hot rocks.

No no no, not me. I cannot bear the sound of the squeals a pig makes when it is being slaughtered.
I'll pick the pig! It dosen't bother me one bit!

This all reminds me of a fishing trip to Canada. The lodge owners had a daughter who wanted to be a vet. She'd help hurt squirrels, etc. We came in one night with a walleye that was just under the slot limit where it would have to go back.

Gave her the fish, and this young lady, who loved animals, proceded to crush it's head in and filet it faster than you could say "Filet 'o fish"!

And it was GOOOOOD!!!!

At least when you go back to the grocery store you won't have to say the meat at this grocery store is expensive

I believe this was the thread where we were planning the caviar (beluga) and $138 per pound prime rib. What happened? My mouth is still watering. What are we serving with it, perhaps to be authentic Yorkshire Pudding, which I can make. Please no one recomment green bean casserole. Any ideas

Everyone who has posted on this thread would love to try out this meat, it the price that is causing people to not buy.

Roasted potato pieces with lots of spices on them would do norgeskog. Can't just have only meat.

It was 3 pounds for 138.98, not one pound.
