This is what I find interesting..people associate flavor with color..when we have fresh cut steaks beside an aged steak, we may as well forget about selling the darker one..I gladly take it home, but would rather sell it...

I read a while back that "aged" beef was actually a living cow, steer, whatever, that wasn't slaughtered until it was 4 to 5 years old. The person writing this thought it was sad that so many beef farmers couldn't afford to feed their cattle that long anymore and that most of the beef cattle slaughtered today were killed at 1 to 2 years old. He thought most people had never actually eaten an "aged" steak and were missing some of the most delicious steaks ever.

Anyhoo, I mixed some mesquite flavoring with hamburger tonight and had it with tacos. It was all right, but I doubt I'll do that again Next time I'll stick to the taco flavoring.

I cook because my pots and pans are the closest thing to a chemistry experiment that I have. So far I haven't blown up the kitchen!

I test drove a refurbished car all morning so, my friend and I stopped into a diner in a small MO town..
The special was meatloaf, mashed w/gravy, green beans and a yeast roll, $6.99..

I'm so happy to be able to drop into the little diners, spread throughout small town Missouri..
