Canton beef ... yum!

AS WE WERE leaving Second String Music last night, Sheryl says, "We are going to Canton to get grass-fed beef." Canton is 20-plus miles up the river on the Missouri side, a nice little trip, so we drove up to check out U.S. Wellness Meats.

There are a lot of benefits to grass-fed meat, and Sheryl is always looking for food suitable for her keto diet. Turns out there is a lot more in the store, including cheese and eggs. I even bought beef sticks and they were tasty.

Take the first Canton exit and go west (north) about a city block. U.S. Wellness Meats is located in the front of a massive building. We missed it at first because I thought it was a factory or warehouse - the store is in the front part. It's very clean and well-organized, and the young woman working the counter was friendly and informative.
Blurry but impressive Harvest Moon

Sheryl bought some bacon, sausage, eggs, butter and cheese. She says the grass-fed meats are "super healthy" and we look forward to our Sunday morning ritual of bacon and eggs. I have a feeling the bacon won't last until Sunday, and we'll see how it stacks up against grocery store bacon.

On the way back we saw a massive harvest moon coming up over the Quincy skyline (yes, Quincy has a skyline, if you approach from West Quincy). I even managed to stop in my favorite West Quincy cigar shop. Who knew you could have such a great shopping experience in the middle of nowhere? Yet another reason why I love living in the Q-Town.

So here's to impulsive shopping trips, healthy food, cheap stogies and big old moons.
