I heard Michael Pollan, one of the food gurus, talk about meat, and he said that if you are going to buy conventional meat, lamb is the way to go. Lambs are not brought up on feedlots, fed antibiotics, etc. In fact they are pastured. They have fairly pleasant if short lives, and are just about as clean a meat as you can get if you can't buy local natural stuff. But it is so expensive! Still, I was really surprised at how good the ribs turned out. I'll be keeping my eye out for more sales.
Had a weird dream that is staying with me. I dreamed I had a part in a play and I showed up on opening night and everyone was excited and talking about how great it was going to be and kind of pampering me, and I realized that I did not know my part and had not gone to any rehearsals. I was supposed to have learned the part on my own and I hadn't. Obviously this would never happen. The meaning is quite obvious! But it is a classic dream.
