The Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Sunday

So today was just one of those days.

I got frustrated doing work. I couldn’t find what I was looking for.

I’m sick (and I haven’t been sick in about a year).

And I’m just plain old grouchy.

BUT then Ryan and I decided to go grocery shopping.

Who gets cheered up by the idea of going grocery shopping!?!


ESPECIALLY when it is a special trip to The Meat House.

We haven’t been to The Meat House since leaving Boston since we’ve mainly consumed a diet of fish (LOVE YOU CALI!).

But when Ryan got a gift card for a wonderful friend (THANK YOU JUDY!), we decided it was time to make a special trip.

And I was excited to see what The Meat House had to offer since I’ve loved everything about Cali since we got here. I thought my day was turning around!

But it didn’t….there is one thing about Cali now that I don’t like…THE MEAT HOUSE.

I LOVED our Meat House in Boston. And this one in Cali was nothing like it.

My no good, very bad day turned into a TERRIBLE, no good, very bad day.

The people behind the counter didn’t seem to know anything about the meat. We waited for like 10 minutes for the girl who helped us to find someone who could butcher the piece of meat we wanted.

Why was she behind the counter if she didn’t know how to butcher the meat!?!

AND the only grass-fed meat they had was from Uraguay! It sat in the counter in plastic wrap!!!!!

Nothing seemed to be local!!!!! Which was super disappointing since Ryan and I have been basically ONLY eating local foods (produce, fruit, fish, eggs, EVERYTHING!).

Plus they didn’t seem to have any in-home made sausages like our one in Boston.



I used to not mind paying a little bit more to get meat from The Meat House instead of just getting the grass-fed, natural meat at Trader Joe’s. I liked supporting our local shop since they were knowledgable and had a great selection. They were welcoming and seemed to really have a passion for what they did!

The Meat House in Boston is AWESOME!

But The Meat House here…well they need to step up their game.
