Halal Hunting

Through my involvement with the Firearms Safety Training for the NZ Police, I am always reminded of the wide diversity of Firearms Owners and Hunters in New Zealand.

T-Bone Steaks

I have fallen for T-Bones recently. What isn't to like about them? They are great value for money, full of taste, and have a bonus feature - the Missus will generally not be able to finish all of hers so I get to eat one and a half T-bone steaks.
