Meatless Memorial Day - Where's the Beef?

May 23rd, 2013 at 10:23 am

Three weeks and a few days, and I've tripped once in a beefless May. It was a bowl of leftover shredded beef and baby hot dogs in BBQ sauce from an art gallery reception. I happened to be in the gallery the day after and was offered to take home a nice bag of leftovers (the meat, a box of cookies, 2 opened bottles of wine, a loaf of hors d'ourve size sourdough, etc.)

The leftovers came in very handy! Made at least 4 dinners and I took my (friend the) hairstylist a surprise lunch. Especially so since I was the only parent home that weekend and had not sunk time or effort into cooking for the kids.

But I tried the beef, and fell off the wagon for a day.

My goal is to be
*** vegenearlian (no beef or pork, non-industrial eggs and poultry only) ***

Are you a SURVEYMONKEY'er ?
I just signed up, anyone else here do this? The reward for completing a survey is a 50c donation to a charity you pick (among their list) and a chance at $100 amazon gift cert.

Funny background questions, e.g.

political tendency ie strongly liberal to strongly conservative (and they did NOT give 'independent' as a choice!)

Do you think Barack Obama is doing a good job

How many hours do you listen to radio (internet, car, etc.)

How many movies did you see in the theater the past month

Nothing about books, hmmmm

My question is: what companies do research using SurveyMonkey? I suppose there are car ; movie studio ; home goods ; electronics manufacturers. But am wary of ANY political action committees using the data and misrepresenting it!!

Can you pick out my jewelry item in this Etsy treasury? (clue: sea glass)

Put together by a treasury expert who's been doing this for years.

Makes the stuff look good!

See you next time!

    Off topic but you mention 30 lbs of halibut...Our marinade for fish filets: 1/4 cup white wine + 1 tablespoon each dijon mustard, horseradish, Thai/Asian chili sauce, soya sauce, sesame oil + lemon slices to bake. Mix & store in a small, tightly sealed jar.

    Marinate fish fillets in a zip bag or double wrap foil 'box' a couple of hours at minimum. Drain marinate, double wrap in foil [or heavy duty foil], lay over lemon slices. bake 400 about 10 minutes dependent on thickness. Fish must be opaque and flake easily with a fork. Don't overcook

    Love oh so expensive halibut yum

    Our school district uses Survey Monkey. Not sure if any businesses I frequent do.
