if I have a craving for burgers I have to wait until I visit the country butcher where they actually still cut meat in the store.

I didn't realize that real butchers are becoming such a rarity. Living in NYC, I guess it's living in a bubble in ways. I have 3 butchers (all Italian!) within a 10-minute walk of my apartment, 1 if I walk east, the other 2 northwest of me and around the corner from each other. And actually, I have 3 specialty food stores--kind of mini- upscale food markets minus the houseware stuff--about a 10-15 minute walk from me, each of which has a butcher shop set-up. The butcher I go to has meat that's primarily pastured, then often grain finished. On Saturday's, there's a small farmers' market about a 15-20 walk from me with a farmer who raises grass-fed organic Angus steers. When we want burgers, that's where I usually go. The best flavor and texture in the world! Not cheap, but boy--worth every penny!!
