100% grass fed beef. Icky! Am I crazy?

I've noticed the same thing as far as steaks tasting better in say even 1999 vs. today. The meat industry is changing more and more and the thing that occured to me is that the cows are fed primarily corn and today 90% of corn is GM. So if you eat beef today you are eating in a sense GM beef. This is a sad fact because we do not know all the ramifications of GM food. It's very sad indeed that corn is not the corn my grandma or mother or even I grew up on since our food supply has been "tampered" with for the last 20 years and now since that is the diet of cows and other animals that we kill for food consist of this GM corn and slop the meat is not the same either.

Cardamom - Acquired taste? Or is a spice that is either loved or hated?

Jeez, that sounds terrible. I have never been to an Indian restaurant but now I will know what to be on the look out for. I am not totally off it yet but I thought I was cracking up when it tasted like what I would imagine Chanel No.5 would taste like.

I just ate something with cardamom in it and it tasted like perfume. Coincidentally, I did have perfume in the same shopping bag. I double checked and the wrapper was sealed and the perfume did not leak. So is it me or does/can cardamom taste like perfume. This is my second run in with it and I am still on the fence.
