Twist on CSAs


Hi luvvies...

Since so many of you are fans of CSAs, thought I'd pass on a development in the movement: meat CSAs. It's a sad commentary on how far away we've gotten from the days of yore or even from my hometown in India where the fact that the meat you're putting in your body once grazed somewhere near you... is a given.

In a related matter, did any of catch the episode of "The F Word" when Gordon Ramsey had to take his pigs (whom he'd raised in his backyard) to the slaughterhouse, so he could put them on the restaurant menu the next week? I have never seen that tough exterior so visibly shaken. Truly tearful. But he wasn't a hypocrite; he saw it through. I can truly say that I have never liked Ramsey as much as I do on this show. It's my favorite food-themed show on television. Take a look, but watch out, it's gruesome:

Yes, our CSA is now offering grass-fed beef. We haven't done it yet, though. I'll let you know if we do-

I started watching and when he got to the slaughter house I turned it off. I don't wanna know. I don't wanna see. I am such a puss.

I need to become a vegetarian.

Oh my gosh, I just finished watching the video. I'm lost for words. I almost didn't watch the whole thing but I knew I had to. If I'm going to eat meat, I needed to watch. I kept thinking of Shila the whole time. :(
