Want to make stew but forgot what kind of beef to put in? Here ya go.

Steak in a Nutshell


I found this cute little “Brief History of Steak” online and thought you might like to see it.

It’s all the basics of steak in a neat, concise package. Looks like a school project.

I’m wishing my school projects had been so much fun. I remember styrofoam solar systems which included planets that are no longer planets now.

My how things change.

Check out this sweet little page here – and share it with your kids. It’s educational!
