I’m thinking of breaking veg…Advice?

I’ve been vegetarian for over the past two and a half years. I started out very convinced that it was the right thing to do, and I still think that vegetarianism is a very noble practice. I just don’t believe in it as strongly as I used to, so I’ve decided to go back to eating meat. I definitely won’t be eating as much meat as I used to –probably just when my family cooks quality meat, or for holiday meals– but I hope you understand my reasoning and respect my decision.

That being said, do you have any warnings or advice for when I begin to eat meat again? I’m sure I’ll need to go through a slow adjustment, to get used to consuming animal products again, but I appreciate any input you can give me.

stay away from red meat…..too much fat if your not careful!

where can i find USDA certified prime beef?

Most USDA prime beef goes to restaurants. You could buy it from a restaurant or perhaps call a foodservice company but you might have to buy by the case.
A good specialty market or butcher should be able to special order from their supplier if the store doesn’t carry it. Call around and ask. It’s expensive but much better than USDA choice beef.

Discover the Origin Recipe – Parma Ham wrapped pork fillet

For years we were looked down on by our European peers when it came to our interest in food – or lack of it. But that’s all changed and we are now a nation of foodies. The plethora of cookery books, acres of press coverage and TV programmes devoted to food and wine are all testament to this.

Sometimes, though, such a wide choice can be bewildering and this can result in consumers making disappointing and poor quality choices. This is when it can be helpful to have some guidance as to the source and quality of a product.

Discover the Origin has come to the rescue with four delicious recipes and wine matching ideas for you to bring the best of European cuisine in to your home. The five products used are guaranteed of their provenance and quality: the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) for Parma Ham and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, AOC for Burgundy wines and DOC for Port and Douro Valley wines.

If you see these labels on any food or drinks, you can rest assured that you will be rewarded with excellent quality. The products are affordable luxuries which can be enjoyed in the confines of your own home, providing good, nutritious dishes, yet still seeming a little bit special.

Check out the ‘Discover the Origin’ vodcasts, presented by celebrity chefs who are supporting the campaign, to give you more inspiration in the kitchen.

how do you cut prime beef?

primes are not divisible.

I guess if it were prime beef you have to divide the cow by just one person. In that case you wouldn’t cut it up, you’d have to eat the whole thing in one bite.

How should I take care of my pet fox "easily" and properly?

I remember that on this website called, it said that I needed the following:
( > means at least)

>250 sq. ft of enclosure space like a pen

Lots of space to run around (for the fox)

6 – 8 in. sand in the pen, for foxes love to dig

Premium/high quality dog food (no pork)

Pen walls have to sink in approx. 2 ft so they don’t dig out


These stuff are all difficult to acquire and I kinda really want a pet fox. Is there some way to take care of a pet RED fox without these accessories and stuff? Or at least something easier to acquire like a slightly smaller pen or a medium sized one, considering our house and yard is small. I mean, our yard can fit a 250 sq. ft pen but that would take up too much space. Plus, it’s kinda hard to manage a fox in general. Please help me. Professional answers GLADLY accepted.

have you considered a more appropriate pet fox … like a fennac fox ??? they stay small and basically can be kept and trained like a dog … you would need a vet who treats exotics though …

fennac foxes are bred in captivity to be raised as pets and are not taken from the wild …

Do you know this tale?

This is the story of a stingy who receives a guest. Once the guest went inside, the stingy called his son to fetch food.
– He told his son: Come on son ! we have a very important guest and you have to go buy a pound of the best quality meat for cooking.
– And the child left for a while then came back empty-handed, he did not bring anything.
– His father asked him: Where’s the meat?
– Child: I went to the butcher, I said: Give me your best meat.
– The butcher said: I will give you a good meat like butter.
– I said: If so, why not buy butter instead of meat.
– I went to the grocery store. I said: Give me the best of your butter.
– The grocer says: I’ll give you a butter that looks like honey.
– I said: If so, it’s better to buy honey.
– I went to the seller of honey, I said: Give me your best honey.
– The man says: I’ll give you a honey which is lighter than the water source.
– I thought: if so, we have water at home and it is better to save money.
– So I’m back without having bought anything.
– Father: I am very proud of you son, you’re great to think in this way. But you failed to pay attention to an important point : you have run all the stores and you must have damaged your shoes.
– The child replied: No father, I put the guest’s shoes.

PS: please excuse the translation is not very terrible! the original text is in Arabic!

O i get it!
