My sister is on the other side of the pond for a while so Himself and I are watching her dog for her. My sister is a vegetarian and her dog, being her dog, doesn't get a whole lot of meat trimmings or leftovers, outside of that in her dry and canned foods. So last night Himself made bacon wrapped sirloins on the grill. Each critter (and yes, we've got six in the homestead right now) got some. My sister's dog was so excited about the heretofore unknown substance called 'meat' that she even took on the smallest cat and attempted to steal her portion. I'm calling it a coincidence that this morning, this very slow-moving 15 year old dog felt good enough to hit warp speed around the corner of the house, headed to points unknown (forcing me through the house, grabbing shoes and out the front).
Oddly enough, my sister had a meal containing ham (she didn't recognize it on the menu) and really enjoyed it. Next stop bacon and onto brats.... ;-) It's kind of like eating no-fat cheese. Once you've had the real thing again, you never go back to the other stuff.
Aaaah, the power of steak (especially with bacon)--it's what's for dinner whenever possible. Or ham and bacon. Or any combination thereof. With cheese.
