          • Crockpotting a beef heart this morning. Feeling a kinship with the Evil Queen in Snow White. Beef, not human, but still, feeling very visceral and like I will be partaking of a life force.

            • I'm definitely not there yet! I admire anyone with the intestinal fortitude to think about eating beef heart, tongue, liver, what have you. I'm just not there yet... I hope you enjoy it! And glad to see you back!

              • I remember my mother having us eat beef heart when I was a child, but I honestly can't remember how she prepared it. I don't think it happened often.

                • I'm not quite there yet but I'll bet it's delicious. Let us know how it turns out!

                    • This, that, and the other

                      The heart turned out great! I told my Honey what he would be partaking of, but NOT my daughters. I told them simply that it was braised beef. They ate it, and though they didn't exclaim at the deliciousness (as did my Honey) they finished without any complaints and slurped up the juices.

                      I will definitely make this again, and heck, often. At $1.69/lb, you can't beat it. It came sliced, and I just tossed it in the crockpot with a sliced onion and three sliced carrots, covered with water, and let it rip at low for 12 hours, then 'sit' for a day in the fridge. Next time I might toss in some red wine or beef stock, to ummph the juices. The meat tasted very MEATY, like an experience, not just a protein source.

                      The dachshunds liked it, too.

                      Trash-picking is a great primal activity. It slows you down, but mimics the 'gathering' aspect of hunt-and-gather perfectly. You have to be alert, bend and reach, and carry an ever increasing load. And although I toss mine into the trash can when I get home, instead of the pantry, it is very satisfying when I get a 'good haul'. I'm sure it does something with my brain to tell me, 'do this again'.

                      Also, once I had a lady bless me for picking up trash in the park. There's nothing like being blessed to make you feel good.

                      I LOVE the Oxford comma. Love it, love it, love it. Just as much as parentheses and the semi-colon.

                      Just finished reading 'Over Time' a memoir by Frank Deford. Engaging, and it has prompted me to look up this quote, by Cromwell, "I beseech you in the bowels of Christ, think it possible you may be mistaken."

                      Not that I am a great Cromwell fan, but I had never hear about Christ's bowels being talked of before, only his heart. Bowels are important, too. Certainly, a vivid image. Now to try to work it into conversation!

                      The money stress has not lessened, but we are DOING THINGS, so I think I am handling it better. On Sunday I was suffused by a sense that my Honey WOULD get a job in time, which was a great comfort to me. Good things are on the way, I am certain.

                      • Oxford comma? A fellow nerd wants to know.

                        In the original Hebrew, what we usually translate "heart" was "bowels" because in Jewish culture, the bowels were perceived to be the seat of emotion. Modern translators quite rightly have left the very literal translation for a more culturally correct version. I do believe the early translations used "bowels", hence Cromwell's use of the term. Although I sincerely doubt if he was a fan of the King James Version, LOL!

                        I will be praying for your hubby's job. And here's to being blessed by strangers.

                        • I got a beef heart for free a few weeks ago and also made it in the crockpot. We all loved it!
                          What's the Oxford comma?

                          • Sabine, standing with you on the job for your hubby! We went through that load of stress for a few years until we moved out here. I wouldn't wish it on anyone - but we are even closer than we were before as a result of the wild adventures of half time on carpenter's pay (doesn't really amount to a hill of beans really!)

                            I have only used beef heart ground up in a combination with other ground beef to lessen the flavour slightly. I can see I might just have to try the slow cooker version too. But I don't think I will share the body part until I see how well received it is...

                            • The Oxford comma is the comma that is used in a series BEFORE the 'and'. As in, 'This, that(,) and the other.' (Oxford comma in parentheses.) Rather than 'This, that and the other.' (Hurts to punctuate it that way!)
                              Or, "I bought pens, pencils, notecards and binders."

                              The feeling is that the absence of the Oxford comma makes the notecards and binders into a unit(like mixed peas and carrots as a dish) rather than separate categories.
                              It is still considered correct to leave it out (By whom, I'd like to ask?!? Savages!) and some people find its use persnickety.
                              But I love it.

                              Trudged around the track last night, in a decidedly non-loping fashion.

                              But at least I went.

                              Also ate a slab of meat. That's what Littelest asked for for breakfast yesterday. "A slab of meat."

                              • Oh the Oxford comma - I was an English major for undergrad, so it's ingrained in me. I cannot skip it. Unfortunately in the legal world, the Oxford comma is apparently wrong! I've been dinged by more than a few professors. I really don't get it!
