Lunch Box 641: Sasquatch, the other jerky meat [Apr. 1st, 2009|06:56 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , , , ]

Today I have a meatloaf cupcake (with a little container of ketchup on the side), steamed snow peas and steamed purple sweet potato. I normally bake - well, microwave - sweet potatoes, but the purple ones I've gotten lately were small and rather dry, so I tried slicing them into half-inch-thick "coins" and throwing them into the steamer. The result: the color is not as bright, but they came out moist and very sweet! I'll remember this trick. Anyway, I also have blood orange segments, some mango, and several pieces of sasquatch jerky.

I like beef jerky, but I haven't packed it in my lunches because, well, something you gnaw on isn't very bento-istic, is it? But when the folks at jerky.com asked me if I'd try a sample of their new sasquatch jerky, I couldn't resist. (Don't worry, Sasquatch are no longer on the Threatened Species list, and they use only free range sasquatches.) It's surprisingly tender - somehow I had expected it to be tough - and it tastes nothing like chicken.

The story on how jerky.com caught the Sasquatch

Check out the story that we worked with the guys over at jerky.com to write about how the sasquatch jerky came to be.


An epic tale. Hope you enjoy!

Re: Sasquatch NOT Endangered

Thank you. I searched Wikipedia, that bastion of 100% true, unbiased information, but they did not have the information I sought.
