Bison Meat Sticks

It sounds like something straight out of the food porn industry.

The Bison Meat Stick. Did you know there was such a thang? These were at the beer tasting event me and the hubs went to last night: taste 12 beers, exploring old & new world varieties.

I hate beer. It’s disgusting. I only went for my hubs. By the 3rd beer sample my stomach was burning as if I ingested acid mixed with bleach water, so I decided to hit up the snack table with pretzels, cheeses and bison meat sticks.

The beer in my glass looks like wolf piss. Pretty much tasted like it, too.

If you’ve never had Bison meat before, you gotta do it. It’s expensive but will hurl you into a gourmet eating experience. Bison meat is much leaner than cow and tastes soooo much better. If you typically like your meat medium well, have it cooked medium instead. Since bison meat is so lean, it can easily dry out if cooked too long.

…and since I’m a total geek squad member, after the beer tasting I stopped a Barnes & Noble to buy a large cupcake (yesss) and pick up a book.

directory of knots

I know. Weird, right? It’s the Directory of Knots: A Step-by-Step Guide to Tying Knots. I’m expanding my horizons, trying something different and learning new skills. There are more than 100 different knots to learn in this book. I’m gonna be one knot-tying, bad ass beyotch.

My ultimate goal is hunt down a Sasquatch of the Southern Canadian region and tie him up using fancy knots skills. I’ll snap a pic as proof of his existence, then share a bison stick with him before unleashing the beast back into the forest.

This plan is foolproof.

…and just in you case you were wondering, yes, I do plan on buying a new fanny pack today. Be jealous.







  1. I think the book sounds good. The beer, bison and cupcake – not so much. No comment about the fanny pack.

    at least Josie will never get a beer gut. maybe a cinnabon gut, anyway, years ago a pal of mine was touring the Olympia beer facility out west. the tour guide showed a sample of some sort of malt liquor and said, “now if you drink for effect, as I do, you’ll choose this”……. an aside: today’s gourmet eats are corn flakes and ice cold milk, topped with the season’s first blueberries. plus our local bakery, Spatz, makes bread with each toasted slice tasting like a premium English muffin, only better……

    I think it’s such an interesting book that you bought. I too have always had a fascination about knots. My dad always tied the knots in ropes when we made stuff like swings and towed a car. Fascinated me so much. You should share some info of what you learn from the book.
    I’m a big beer drinker. Love it and the bison meat I will try to find here in SA.

    Beer is an acquired taste, much like coffee. I’ve drank beer all over the entire planet and tried nearly every variety I could find in each country I visited. Some probably do taste like wolf piss, though I personally have never tried it 😉 The ones I prefer now are from local micro breweries and the ones I prefer the most are darker colored ales. American IPA’s are bitter and lighter in color. I’m imaging that you most likely tried those. Darker ales are sweeter in flavor, and sometimes look like root beer.

    You are a good, good person for drinking that beer for your husband. Possibly the best wife ever because if mine asked me to do that I’d look at him cross-eyed and say helz no.

    I’m not much of a meat eater and I don’t eat things in stick form. It seems weird to me. Oh, unless it’s a cheese stick. Except string cheese which is weird to me. But you could use it to practice knot tying.

    I’m a bit jealous about the fanny pack and the Sasquatch!
    I remember seeing bison burgers up in NH over a decade ago! As well as a pamphlet about the “other red meat.”

    As a southern Canadian I can assure you that the Hairy Canadian Sasquatch is plentiful this year and can be found wandering along many beaches on sunny weekends.
    How do you know what wolf piss tastes like? I mean some of my friends know ’cause they hunt and well you know men.

      Wolf piss is sorta like Sasquatch piss, except more potent and frothy. Don’t ask me how I know.

  12. I’m a big fan of bison! I love a good bison burger. There is actually a burger joint around the corner from me that serves bison. It’s so good!

  13. I have never had bison. It may be similar to venison which we have often due to our mad hunting skills. That beer tasting would be my thing for sure!

    I don’t like beer either. I wanted to like it, especially when I was younger. I do have a fanny pack!! I bought it in June for going to EDC Vegas. It was useful – no worrying about everything falling out of my pockets!
