Eat with the fullest pleasure

“Eating with the fullest pleasure- pleasure, that is, that does not depend on ignorance- is perhaps the profoundest enactment of our connection with the world”.

    “First comment shows attitude that will destroy this planet.”

    I’m making elk tenderloin with roasted purple carrots, snow peas and a red wine reduction for Sunday dinner.

    They were fresh out of unbaptized infants at the market.

    Here in Scotland, we have a major ecological problem with uncontrolled deer populations. Eating the buggers seems like a very good idea.

    You do know that deer are farmed too, right?

    Suenorth, your comment is just silly. I was simply agreeing with the quote. I know my connection with the world.

    I carefully harvest from a managed deer herd, properly prepare and preserve the meat, and I enjoy it, because it is both delicious and nutritious. No matter how much guilt you want to bury yourself in, we humans are a part of the food chain.

    Get a grip on reality. The planet will not be destroyed. Humans might, but the planet really does not care.

    Wayne, not wrong, just disgusting. Goat is for braising or for kebab.

    If I say goat milkshakes, does that sound wrong?
