Fun Playing with Grass Fed Beef from Wayne Cattle Company

Last Saturday, Bob and I finally made it to the Geauga Farmers' Market, lured by an email from Brandon Smith, who is the heart and soul behind Wayne Cattle Company, purveyors of fabulous grass-fed Longhorn beef. It was more of a market preview, with only three vendors there. But I was so grateful to Brandon for getting me to locate this market - it is only a few miles from my house, which I hadn't realized.

And - we got what we went for - some of Brandon's fantastic grass fed beef. We also saw Courtney from Herbthyme and picked up some yummy lettuce and some basil plants (lemon and lime basil).

We couldn't wait - we had to defrost a couple of steaks for Saturday's dinner!

Yukon Golds tossed with Lemon infused Grapeseed Oil and Emeril's Essence (Bam!), then baked in the toaster oven until crispy.

A fabulous meal, made possible by Brandon's amazing beef!

  1. What a shame Bob doesn't like beef. LOL. I'm glad to hear that Brandon's beef is tasty. I'm a bit outside his delivery area, and driving to the Geauga FM seems a bit absurd when there are others much closer to where I live.

    I recently found out that there's a farm very near my home that supplies grass-fed beef. Talk about "local-sustainable". :)
