Archive for the ‘Pork’ Category

The Mouse got a tour of the warehouses. Very excited. No pictures, proprietary purposes.

And the employee discounts, although there are a few restrictions, can be awesome.

The Mouse’s first purchase, almost two pounds of oxtail, for the weekend. The Mouse has to check later for pork cheeks and beef tongue. All the meat cuts that were price prohibitive as a non-employee.

Mouth watering in anticipation.

The Mouse’s take-out on the way home.

The Mouse is deciding between Western and Asian style oxtail stew. Decisions, decisions.

Enjoy. Eat well.
