In February, Bill and I missed our monthly trip to the West Michigan Co-op since we were leaving for Cuba the next day, but we just made our March run for some of our favorites: pork steak, nitrite-free bacon, and grassfed beef from Creswick Farms; McIntosh apples and Bosc pears from Wells Orchards; and, we picked up some lamb for the first time from S&S Lamb. All this meat to stretch us a little further into the year, until our meat order from Lubbers Farm comes in (beef, pork, and lamb). And we brought my stepson, Ian, with us for his first visit to the Co-op.
As is our ritual, we stopped at the Electric Cheetah for dinner and I saw a new item on the menu: Fried Free-Range Pork Steak (from Creswick Farms). A boneless cut of beautiful pork loin with a light breading, it came with crisp French green beans, buttermilk mashed potatoes, and black pepper country milk gravy. The caramelized onion on top was the perfect complement to all the flavors on my plate.
Way to go, guys. Another happy dinner for me!
