Bison

10 posts in this topic

I don't like to eat grocery store beef because of all the hormones and antibiotics. I LOVE bison though. Well, I just wanted to share my great fortune with you folks. I was talking to a customer whom I hadn't seen in a while. She said she was going to bring me some pork pie because she knows how much I love it.

I had to tell her about my celiac disease and how truly sorry I am that I ca no longer eat her pork pie. It was one of my favorite foods of all time. Anyway, I mentioned that I eat bison when I can afford it, and chicken most days because it is cheap.

She called me yesterday and said she was bringing me a present from an anonymous donor. I THINK she must have mentioned me and my celiac to someone at her church or something. Anyway, long story short, this anonymous person sent me a five pound bison roast, about eight pounds of ground bison, and five packages of bison hot dogs. All organic, all locally grown and "harvested". That is WELL over a hundred dollars worth of meat! Probably over two hundred.

I can't believe how good people are to me! There is barely enough room in my freezer for all of this, and between that and what I already had in there, I won't need to buy meat for two or three months. And because there is so much more nutrition in bison than in chicken, I know I'm going to start feeling better than I do now. (My energy level has been pretty low lately.)

Just when faith in mankind is at its lowest ebb (Connecticut), somebody does something to make me believe in humanity again. Merry Christmas!

I'm not a fan of bison. I ate it for about two years straight and got burnt out. It does, however, have less fat than regular beef and is good in sauces and such.

Good for you :) Its nice when out of no where you are showered with such kindness.

Yeah, it IS shaping up to be a great December for me. There have been some pretty good guitar related things going on too, and I ALSO got a new banjo that a local guy made. Best sounding banjo I have ever played. I'll most likely be spending Christmas alone with my cat, but I'll be eating well and playing my new banjo, so it'll be a great Christmas anyway. :)

Yep. I don't know if, like a lot of forums, we aren't supposed to bring up religion here, but I will say that God has always watched out for me, and through other people like this anonymous donor, He has always given me what I need.

Merry Christmas to you too.

Whenever we are feeling at our lowest, always, always something (or someone) comes our way and renews our faith in humanity.

I always believe in the goodness of people, even when terrible things happen. Good always triumphs evil.

I am delighted for you, Barty! Enjoy, honey--you deserve it. You are always so sweet and kind to others.

And because of your recommendation awhile ago , I eat bison now, too!

Much love and happiness for a blessed Christmas and Healthy New Year, IH xxoo
