Flowers? Pshht. Get Him A Meat Basket.

I just picked up a special order I made from Pecan Lodge: a meat basket. It's an idea I had a while ago when I was trying to think of something to get a guy friend who's been sick. Didn't want to get him flowers. And bacon roses seemed so 2011.

We needed a Meat Basket.

When I asked Pecan Lodge if they'd help me out, they delivered and then some. "Can we add beer to it?" they asked. Yes. Yes you absolutely can.

"I never knew I would enjoy working with meat so much, but I do!" Diane said as she was assembling the meatscape.

You can now inquire about Meat Baskets from Pecan Lodge. You're welcome, World.

She created and hosts the Dallas event, Meat Fight, which is a barbecue competition and fundraiser that benefits the National MS Society. Last year, the event raised $100,000 for people living with MS, and 750 people could be seen shoving sausage links into their faces. And one time, she won a James Beard Award for Humor in Writing. That was pretty cool.
