extra pickles and ketchup please...

Oh God, so yesterday morning I read the most disturbing article about the ridiculous amounts of e.coli that go undetected in beef processing despite all the new safety precautions. In fact, this one woman who was a dance instructor literally wound up in a coma and became freaking paralyzed after eating a tainted pre-packaged burger.  Can you imagine?  

I have to tell you, reading that story was more depressing than watching the women interviewed in Chris Rock's new hilarious flick, Good Hair openly admit that given a choice: they'd spend $1K on their weave before they'd pay rent/ mortgage. Um-hmm... Mind you, I already knew how folks get down about their hair- hell hath no fury like a bald-headed black woman- but still... 

Granted, this isn't the first time that I've been warned about the dangers of beef.  But at the end of a shitty day, nothing says love like a couple of my super-duper homemade tacos. But now, thanks to the chick in the wheelchair, I'm gonna have to rethink all of that. Sigh.

Don't you hate it when you gotta do better just cause you know better?


  1. You know, it's expensive but I purchase all kosher meats, turkey and chicken only. They slaughter meat differently and everything is just done different.

  2. I can see I'm going to have to step away from the beef. It makes me sad indeed.
