knife etiquette

A good knife is like a gun (always treat it as if its loaded) or power tool (always treat it like it is energized), if you friend cannot learn from words then let her learn from someone else's knife-when she cuts off a finger she might throw it and ruin the blade.

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

This seems to be a YMMV issue, As a kid I ate at the stockyards at Grand Jct. Colo and the beef there was range fed, back east I spent 10 years working for a residential school that raised its own beef, all grass fed. It is going to be different from feedlot beef and it is a function of what you are used to.

Depression Dining

Lots less prepared foods and forget fast food, a little judicious shopping and MacDonalds for two can cost more than New York strip for two and chicken paella can cost less than a Big Mac.
