It is Ms. Goofy's birthday this week and "The President of Cookies" (my sister) took my 'Master Judge' wife out to lunch. I was not invited. This poor meat craving soul needed some protein substance. A quick mini 'Meat Adventure' to Berkeley, California to 'The local Butcher Shop' resulted in some hamburger and bacon. A very special burger would be had for lunch. This is what the 'The Local Butcher Shop' has to say about themselves;
The Local Butcher Shop offers our community sustainably raised, local meat. We only buy whole caracasses directly from local farmers and ranchers, all located within 150 miles of Berkeley. All of our product is pasture raised - no antibiotics, no hormones - just pure, clean meat. Because we buy whole carcasses, we are able to do custom cut butchery – however you want it, we can cut it! All of our butchers are trained chefs who are happy to help you with cooking suggestions and recipes. We also make our own sausages, pates, stocks, and sauces as well as a changing Sandwich of the Day!
This burger was a masterpiece. The bacon was a very special addition to this sandwich. A 'Bacon Revue' will follow shortly. I was not invited to lunch but I did it 'My Way'
