We left the house shortly after 4 a.m. in the cab of a freezer truck, boxes loaded beneath the truck and at our feet: one full of precious fresh eggs and one full of grass-fed beef related literature.
John is riveting. He is lively and inspiring. From the moment I arrived, bleary eyed and chilly, asking how I could help, he was in go mode. We conversed the entire way to market, speaking over the freezer truck’s roaring diesel engine.
The beef John sells is raised entirely on grass, rather than corn and other grains as commercial feedlot-raised beef. Cows body’s are adapted for vegetable sustenance, not grain. Grass-fed cows produce a leaner steak and a more flavorful burger. John says that he and his wife Nadine consider themselves grass farmers, since the most crucial ingredient to high quality beef is a high quality pasture. The cows must have a variety of grasses.
He says, “Like honey, the taste of beef will vary with the particular grasses the animals eat. Our irrigated pastures are filled with grasses that produce great tasting beef.”
Is there anything better than attending a Super Bowl party? Just show up, eat, drink and be merry. Like any great holiday, all it requires is your attendance. Not recognized as a real “Holiday” but certainly the best fake Holiday in the history of man. It’s not just the game. There’s the commercials, halftime celebrations (thanks Janet), and the delicious combos of food and drink. So, if you’re invited, don’t hesitate, grab your buddies, the designated driver, head to the destination and begin the festivities.
Now, if you are on the other side – planning the party – you’ve accepted a challenging new level of responsibility. Primary concerns – how much food and booze? Secondary issues are tables, chairs, napkins, silverware, serving dishes, waste and TV’s. First order of planning is organization and with that comes a list. Start the checklist and begin with the items that require the most time. In my experience, it’s the chairs, tables, serving trays, food and beer that need a few extra days. Hahaha, I know it sounds like “everything” but food is on the list because of the huge appeal of the game – your source of supply may need time for preparation and coordinating their resources. We’ll tackle that later – for now, let’s focus on the everything else except food and beer.
