    They called them chops. I call them pork steaks.

    Look like pork steaks to me. I’d rather have pork steaks myself. Got more flavor IMO

    Looks great, Nock!
    It also reminds me I need to gather eggs again tomorrow to add to the ones that have been holding my refrigerator hostage since I put 8 dozen on the neighbors porch last week and ran.

    I think we took 10 dz to the Amish sell last weekend. Plus some chickens.

  11. That’s why I got out of chickens after my last hen finally died. Got sick of begging people to take them.

    I don’t eat eggs daily so it was really a waste for me. I only eat a dozen every couple of weeks so I plop down $6 a dozen for premium store bought ones and can’t tell the difference. I know $6 sounds high but it’s actually a bargain lol or it is to me by comparison. They’re large to extra large brown eggs with a dark orange yolk that tastes like fresh country eggs I swear.

    6$ is expensive BUT if you like eggs and don’t have access to farm eggs, it’s worth it.

    I read an article a while back discussing the overall nutrient loss of our big agricultural produce...there was talk of a quick tool that could test nutritional value and price more accordingly. AKA-cheaply produced food, that has very little nutritional value, may actually cost MORE per unit of nutrient than expensive but nutrient dense produce.

    Found (what I think) a prime bone-in 2.5lb ribeye on managers special last night. Dales, salt, garlic powder. Roast at 300 until it hit 120 then baste with butter, thyme, garlic. Seared hard for a crust. 7304EA3E-63D1-4ACF-B024-B15A0A7781FD.jpeg 55D6AEF2-7B66-416A-BD51-1DCA2F807A99.jpeg 5A8EA553-ED28-4933-B578-6FDDFBD9F3EF.jpeg F6F20AE0-1E83-4127-83A0-C1212FF0A75D.jpeg
