Where to Buy Vanilla Beans?

Thank you for posting about Penzey's. I visited there last week and they were amazing! You can smell each of the spices before buying. And the double strength vanilla extract made me swoon. I may try some of the suggestions for buying online as well. Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!

cooked lamb leg with lots of tiny holes (sponge-like) -- should I be concerned??

I called the USDA Food Safety folks who will be investigating this incident based on info from the pork loin package. They said NOT to eat the meat or even the vegetables that I cooked with it.

I found this pattern in a pork loin I cooked for Easter. I had never seen it before in any piece of meat in many decades of cooking. I plan to call USDA food safety.
