Goofing around with a rib roast (a lovely, grassfed, heirloom-breed rib roast). Recipe post on the blog hopefully tomorrow for those of you wanting to cook something like this for NYE. The breed is Dexter–2/3 the size of a typical commercial steer, hence the smaller overall size of the roast.

Yes, that is the word “MEAT” in large white block letters right next to my ass…and for the food geeks among you, you will appreciate which cookbook it is (for the non-food geeks, it’s Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s The River Cottage Meat Cookbook–an essential bookshelf item for every meat lover).

And for those of you cooking turkeys today…pat it bone dry and rub that sucker all over with a giant chunk of butter!
