Mystery Meat

Back in the land of WTH is this? Three weeks in the States had me use to the foods and meats again. Now I'm back in Germany and gagging on everything! Last night's Spaghetti was the final draw. I knew when I was cooking the beef it smelled weird to me, look weird to me and sure enough tasted ....ummmm disgusting! WTH do they feed the cattle here in Deutchland ? and the chickens too.....I'm really too lazy to be vegetarian plus I'm married to a carnivore, total meat and potatoes kinda guy. What to cook for dinner tonight? Toast anyone?

One good thing about the American midwest is the cornfed beef they serve around here. Never will you get a serving of beef that doesn't agree with you.

Whenever H is away, I look forward to breakfast for dinner! Always a hit. Pancakes and bacon, or an omelette, or just a bowl of cereal. Yum!

Isn't bratwurst and sausage suppose to be better there?
How's the pollen going?

Just a guess, but perhaps the animals there are on pasture rather than locked up, unable to move and eating "food" they were never meant to eat.

We started eating meat from pastured animals here and at times it can be a little game-y. We've found that when that happens, if you add lots of seasonings or make a stew it cuts that game-y-ness.

If the animals are on pasture, the meat is much healthier for you. Hang in there!

Aww... I'm sorry you're having a hard time. That sounds just awful. Ice cream for dinner?

Wow that is horrible. I hope the mystery "meat" wasn't spoiled!

For dinner I suggest:
Blueberry waffles
Omelet
Tuna Casserole
Vegetable Soup
Spaghetti with extra cheese
Salads
Lots of Alcohol.........

I'm pretty sure cows in Germany eat grass.
What do American cows eat? Maybe you just have different grass over there?

Oh no...
The Chinese has a trick to mask the smell of 'meat'...add some ginger for cooking- fresh ginger is better, but power would work I think... just a little & not too much! should try dear~ ps: if anything fails, get SPAM* ;)

xo*

I heard the pastries are good over there. If all fails you could go on a liquid diet of beer. xoxo

See that's the one thing I'm afraid of when I finally make it overseas.
I'm a very picky eater and I'm not sure I could eat the food over there.

Sorry to hear it. I'd say milkshakes for dinner are in order.

I would eggs every night b/c they are so easy to cook and I suck at cooking Unfortunately, my kid hates eggs... yay me?

Oh, I so know what you are saying! The beef especially, but then again the lamb is very gamey too. A few good ideas from your comments are to use the meats for stews, in sauces, and to add ginger. Me, I like the cereal/omelette idea from Deidra. But I guess when you have a family to feed that isn't an option. But I agree, the meat isn't like ours. But then again, I've heard they don't use hormones & we do. Is that true? That can't be good for us.
