How do you like your steak cooked?

By: Kathleen  •  30 comments  •  2 hours ago
Good Morning all, Yesterday there was a article about how much protein we need in our diets, so it reminded me of eating a nice juicy steak on the grill. How do you like your steak cooked and what cut do you prefer? Rare/Med Rare/Med/Med Well/ Well Done Please, no politics or religion and be polite.  Thank you.

By   Brandy Zadrozny On a cool evening in October, Alain Malcolm, 20, walked into a vacant two-story colonial house in Bristol, Connecticut. Two members of a local internet vigilante group — who regularly try to expose and shame alleged child predators they entice online — were waiting for him. Malcolm was tall and handsome. The   oldest son of Jamaican immigrants , he wholly...

“Seinfeld” might offend young people, not that there’s anything wrong with that. Millennial-focused website Bustle is taking heat for publishing a listicle that examines all the reasons why “Seinfeld” would be a little too edgy in the modern climate of policing everything that isn’t deemed politically correct. Comedian and author Tim Young told Fox News that the article is “ridiculous,”...
