I meant to write this over a month ago, and boy how time flies these days. My beef supplier didn’t have any grass-fed cows available until next year, but she did have a traditionally fed coming in. So I picked up a quarter of quite a few great-looking cuts, and even convinced the butcher to include 4 bags of fat so I can make tallow. I also like the way the new butcher packs the meat in paper rather than plastic, making it much easier to unpack when the time comes.
My 44th came and went without much fanfare. I sorta wanted to post a “Lordy Lordy, look who’s turning 4040!” meme from Aqua Teen Hunger Force though, because of course I do! Besides decade-old cartoons, I took the week off and just played Final Fantasy 14 for the whole time. I started it about a week earlier than that and am actually enjoying it quite a bit. I never thought I’d say that about a MMORPG, but hey, they clearly know what they’re doing.
