I love pork!
I re typed this first sentence so many times…first it was “I like a good pork”..then…”I could be porked every night and never get tired of it”…finally I came up with “my butcher gives good pork”…but it all sounded a bit crass so I will stick with “I love pork!”
I want to know one thing from bloggers out there…how many of you buy meat from a local butcher or market or wholesaler and how many of you buy meat from the supermarket? I don’t think I’m a food snob (actually, maybe I am) but I just don’t see how anyone can justify buying meat from the supermarket in those awful cling wrapped containers.
I guess I love shopping for food and don’t mind spending my Saturday driving from place to place in order to purchase my favourite food items from my favourite places. If I have to drive half an hour just to buy my favourite cheese, I will. I’m busy just like everyone else but Saturday is my food day, unless I’m on school holidays, then everyday is a food day with one trip out to a winery with friends guaranteed.
Get to know your butcher people! Don’t give more money to those fuckers at the stupidmarket! Coles and Woolworths bloody brands everywhere forcing people to buy their shitty products…so tired of it!!!
If someone can tell me where I can buy toilet paper and cleaning products without having to go into a supermarket, please tell me, and don’t say bloody COSTCO because I’m not giving them my money either!
OK! On a lighter note…
I love my butcher and he minced up some wonderful pork, veal, chicken and beef for me this morning and this made me soooooo happy! Did I mention that I love my butcher?
I used the pork mince to make these tasty meatballs tonight and they were so…well…tasty! With herbes from the garden and a little bit of mashed potato and mustard in the pork balls and cooked in a fresh tomato, onion and garlic sauce, I was feeling pretty self righteous!
A great meal with not one cent of my hard earned money going to these horrible stupidmarkets!
Eat well and fight on!
