I agree, Claire. If you've ever worked in a job where you are dealing with the public , the smart asses can get you down. It's very hard to maintain your cool when you are being treated badly.

Claire, I didn't mean to suggest that I would act as a smartass. That was a poor choice of words on my part, I meant more of like just joking around in a good natured way.

My bad!

I never trust pre-ground meat anymore, not unless done specifically by a butcher when I ask him to.

and I've recently discovered that i prefer pork to beef for meatloaf, so buy loin of pork and grind it in my food processor.

This thread makes me doubly happy that in 1964 I bought my, then 65 year old, Grandmother an Oster meat grinder for Christmas; doubly happy because it's still going strong. I took me about 15 minutes today to grind 1 1/2 lbs of pork butt for meatballs that are currently cooking in a batch of tomato spaghetti sauce. It took about 1/2 hour to clean and dry the grinder.
IIR the Oster cost ~$65.

It took me about 35 minutes to grind 12.5 pounds of chuck today (with the bulk of that the cutting and fat removing).

I used Lucille to do the heavy lifting on the grinding.

You named your grinder?

Excellent!

There was a DC contest to name the KA when he got it. Lucille fits.

His food processor became Red Bettie.

That reminds me of the last thing a bug thinks when it splats on your windshield: "Big!!! Shiny!!!" {splat!}
