I've recently taken to buffalo burgers. The store by my house has a butcher shop offering ground buffalo. Surprisingly, ordering is not a smooth process. I would have thought that butchers were very strong in fractions and decimals--seeing as all they do all day is sell meat by the pound--by I was wrong. It takes some time to persuade them that I don't want 40 pounds of meat, 4% of a pound, nor 4 pounds (these are all actual points of confusion from my last two trips there), but 0.4 pounds. Just right for one burger.

If you haven't had buffalo burgers, you really should. It's the best burger I've ever had. Imagine a normal tasty burger, but twice as flavorful. That's buffalo. It's delicious.

Plus, you're doing your part for the environment! As more people eat buffalo, there's more and more reason to take down the fences on the Great Plains and let the buffalo roam (instead of cows).
