New Kitchen Art + Free Meat-Lovers' Printable

It should come as no surprise that I am no vegetarian.  Of the two recipes I've shared here, one uses two delicious kinds of meat, and the other includes superfluous bacon (...although, is bacon ever superfluous?).

In honor of my love of meat, I took to Inkscape this weekend to create some new, colorful art for our kitchen.  I like the idea of framed fabric, which was what I had been rockin' in my kitchen for years.  Earlier this year, I tried to update it with some new, scrap fabric that I had on hand.  I wasn't really thrilled with what I ended up with.  You can kind of see it lurking there by The Dude in this shot.

See, not exactly impactful.  Anyway, I Googled around a bit for some meat cut charts, created a little something in Inkscape, applied some pretty colors and a fun font, and ended up with these:

I printed them off on some photo paper and threw them in some frames with mats, and I am really loving what I ended up with!

Sure, it's a bold choice, but what can I say...I love a kitchy kitchen.  If you like them too, I'm sharing the love.  I mean, seriously, why let good meat art go to waste?!   Download them and print them for free here:

    PS - I have to mention that this weekend an amazing thing occurred, when I met a guy who knows--is friends with, in fact--the guy who played Ricky in Sleepaway Camp. Best thing that happened to me all week.
