The Polar Express

Dear John, 
The Polar Express, is a Christmas movie that takes place on a magical Christmas Eve train ride to the North Pole.  Nearing their final destination, a simple engineering foible causes the holiday engine to gain speed.  Faster and faster the train hurtles out of control and the fading yuletide magic crashes into frenzied panic as passengers vainly grasp their seats desperate not to be thrown about the once festive cabin. 

Black Friday Sales.  Office Parties.  Holiday Dinners.  St. Nick's Day.  Special Dishes.  Christmas Lists.  Gift Wrapping.  Decorate the Tree.  Elf On The Shelf.  School Holiday Presentations.  Kris Kringle Gifts.  Holiday Parties.  Ornaments.  Church Services.  Christmas Cookies.  Decorate the House.  Christmas Outfits.  Lights.  Travel Plans.  Gifts For That Someone Special.  Family Celebrations.

It seems that every year we are expected to do more and start sooner.  And somehow in the midst of this we are supposed to maintain our "normal lives" and hopefully our sanity as well.  Before you jump on that runaway holiday train read this Huffington Post article and remind yourself of some simple ways to get more enjoyment from the holidays.

We hope we can help make your holiday more enjoyable with grass fed meats delivered to your door or as a gift for your friends and family.

Dr. Mercola
800 Studies Show They're "Gravely Harmful," but the US Turns a Blind Eye.

Even though the European Food Safety Authority rules them "unacceptable," the USDA and EPA remain mindless puppets to industry.  Complacent to a threat equivalent to DDT or worse, the US continues to threaten and silence those brave enough to speak out.

Unbeknownst to many Americans, the majority of soybean, corn, canola, and sunflower seeds planted in the U.S. are pre-coated with neonicotinoid pesticides (neonics).

The chemicals, which are produced by Bayer and Syngenta, travel systemically through the plants and kill insects that munch on their roots and leaves.(1)  However, you can't cover a plant seed with poison and expect it to be free of unintended consequences.

Bison Ribeye

"We Enjoyed Every Bite"   

Grilled these last night, direct heat, 3 minutes a side, rest 10 minutes to a perfect medium-rare. Fantastic flavor...delicious to the last bite.  I highly recommend and will definitely order this cut again!
