After reading an article in The New York Times about cheap cuts of meat getting dressed up in restaurants I’ve been a little curious about trying my hand at my own cheap meats. I mean, have you heard about this economy business? But because I’ve been avoiding meat in general, cheap or otherwise, (because of this article) I’ve only gotten around to it now. And because my mother has been eager to clean out the freezer we tried to use at least one thing from there too. The result was quite good if I may say so. Here you can see me in my magazine cover pose. Please ignore the fact that no magazine would actually allow the cutoff jeans. We painted the kitchen all day, which really, just makes the fact that I put out this spread even more impressive, given the state of the kitchen.
