Hurray for Burger!

It has been a very sad thing, having to serve regular old burger for the whole week. Today we received farmer Ron’s PA-raised grass-fed beef. This couple hundred pounds of burger will get us through til next week when we get Ken Jaffe’s steer in again. It may be superstitious, or just new-relationship giddiness, but I prefer dealing with Jaffe, mostly because we are going to be dealing with him (it seems) for a long time. He’s like Bubby’s cowboy girlfriend. No offense to Jaffe. Besides immature boyish feelings about our new-found steerman, Jaffe’s beef is really amazing. His animals are happy, and having laid eyes on them in their happy field, they really gleam with good health. Not that the PA beef is going to be less good, but the Jaffe, NY beef comes with less attitude, and more of a relationship.

As Pollan would say: Shake the hand that feeds you. Some hands shake better than others.
