No veggies or grains - once a week

I was thinking of picking one day a week I would eat nothing but meat.
Does anyone have any ideas of one meat that would compliment another? Would I be better with bacon as a main course and ham as a side for breakfast, or just the opposite? For dinner, would a couple chicken wings be OK to have with a steak, or maybe a hamburger patty instead? With a couple pork chops as an appetizer.
I don't want to become a true carnivore, yet, but I'm looking for any all meat meal ideas. BTW, I don't want to substitute fish for grains or veggies, but chicken or pork would be OK.







For you sattie

Try the real "SOY CHICKEN" as opposed to the crap I eat...

You are such a brat!

I suggest you take a sausage, stuff it into a cornish hen, wrap the cornish hen in bacon, and cook it all in duck fat.

And larry - we do NOT discuss soy chicken anymore!

LOL!!!
Must be on the Adkins diet now?

How about Turducken? A chicken inside a duck inside a turkey.
Deep fried?
Bacon wrapped?
maybe a chunk of cheese as a side dish?
I'd say a potato but then you'd be eating a (GASP!) veggie.

Suzi - I think if you put enough butter, sour cream, and cheese on a potato it negates the veggie factor and becomes a dairy product! Then you can top that dairy product with bacon crumbles.

Great suggestions, Suzi! As always.
I'm just trying to do my part for the environment by reducing the methane gas produced by farm animals. I figure if I can take one night a week to eat meat, meat, and more meat, it's a start.

I think you all meat days should have a theme.

A meat day would focus on one animal, say pig. For breakfast you could have a bacon tasting - smoked American bacon, Canadian bacon, pancetta - served with a pork gravy dipping sauce.

For lunch a ham sampler - prosciutto, serrano ham, virginia ham, baked ham followed with BBQ Spam lollipops for dessert.

Dinner! Pork chops fried in lard, pork tenderloin cutlets milanese, chitlins, and cracklings. Served with sausage gravy.

For dessert, pickled pigs feet.

Just trying to help you with your selfless support of the meat industry of America. I these troubled times, we all have to do our part.
