I like a good Bambi roast too, as well as lamb and goat. I'm a big fan of Middle Eastern/Indian/Lebanese cooking.

Why, DWM? Moose are just really BIG deer, after all. Elk are the second largest behind moose in the deer family.

I honestly don't know! The older I get, the more the idea of eating meat seems...unpalatable. I still do eat meat, but it's less and less frequent. I've started pouting (for lack of better word) when the hubby buys it...it's overpriced to hell, and do we really need to eat it all the time?
It started when we got quail and I decided that I'm never hungry enough to make something die. Then it got worse with my major as we learned all the little lovely bits about decay. XD

I can't eat chicken bought at the grocery store, anymore. It's...(blech) tasteless. I suppose if I raise cattle in the future I'll stop buying that, too.

Oh, I don't eat meat every day. I never have. I can go weeks where I don't devour any animal flesh at all, but when I want it I have it.

Corporal, my plan is to raise chickens for meat/eggs, and a get a Holstein steer to raise for the freezer. I have a friend very interested in going in half on the steer with me, and when he's butchered she'll get half the meat. I may even offer someone else 1/4 of my half, since there's no way I can eat a whole half beefer in a year's time, and I'd like to do it every year.

I don't have the time or patience for a garden, but I can always trade meat and eggs for fresh produce with the neighbors who do.

LOL I can relate to that! About once a month, sometimes every other month I *NEED* a rare steak. Rare as in bloody and hot like it was straight from the cow.

On that note, my husband says that cravings like that are your body's way of getting nutrients that you're lacking.

ETS: I've convinced hubby that when we move, we will be raising meat rabbits for his meat desires. I also intend to get a couple of goats, maybe a couple of sheep though depending on the lease, it might have to wait a few years until we can buy property in California...

(So if he wants meat, he'll have to work for it)
