Alert: Animal sensitive people may not want to read this post.
If you had heard me earlier in the day speaking with a local meat producer you would think that I cared about the quality of life of animals that I intend on eating.
"Are they grass fed?" "Are they killed humanely?" "Do they get to roam in a grassy pasture that's filled with a variety of colored wildflowers?"
In truth, I just want the meat to taste really really good (and I just watched Food, Inc.)!
So tonight's meal was a delicious grass fed lamb from Australia. If I can find a good point of not purchasing local, it's that I know I didn't see this cute little lamb toddling after it's mother this spring.
