Gastronomer: A biped of the human kind who never eats or drinks without being hungry or thirsty; who never swallows food before having thoroughly masticated it, and never masticates before having tasted it; who never eats or drinks anything the property of which is not known; never eats too much, even of quails, civet, or matelote; and never drinks too much, even of water.

Cooking Tip of the Month: Freezing beef

Here are some guidelines for how long you can safely store beef products, but always remember - WHEN IN DOUBT - THROW IT OUT!
Uncooked hamburger and stew meat can be frozen for 3-4 months. Uncooked, fresh steaks and roasts for 6-12 months.
Unopened lunch meats can be frozen and stored for 1-2 months (when stored in freezer wrap).
If you have leftover dishes with cooked beef in them, you can freeze them for about 2-3 months.
