Near County Road C in Maplewood, Minnesota, in one half of a brick building, is housed a meat market that not only carries spectacular cuts of meat for the dinner table, but also items that cater to the gourmands among us. The Angus Meat Market assaults your senses and eyes when you walk in with the smells of hickory and smoke, and an array of meats including every cut of steak imagineable, jerky in a variety of flavors made from beef, turkey and chicken, and double-smoked hickory bacon. What drew MarkdownMom to this site was their large sign heralding “Double Smoked Hams.” For the holidays, this is a must have and your quests will rave at the moistness and flavor of their hams, and for that special occasion you can even order a whole pig for roasting!
For those who culinary tastes are more adventurous, this market carries specialized meats such as alligator and smoked alligator and kangaroo (delight for all those Crocodile Dundee fans), bison, elk, kobe/wygu (Japan) patties and steaks, farm raised venison, wild boar, goat and grass fed beef can be ordered! Besides free range chickens and turkeys, they carry small birds including quail, cornish hens, and partridge.
.For the hunters, The Home Market processes all kinds of game. For you favorite pooch, they even have dog treats–the lists goes on and on. And what ‘s equally important, prices were more than competitive–like 95% ground beef for $4.99/lb!
Oh, MarkdownMom mustn’t forget that the other half of the brick building houses the family’s liquor store. One stop shopping to pick up that special beverage to go along with your delicious meals.

This Is One Family-Owned Business where family pride is shown in the quality of their product!!!


What is a Schticky? It is a washable lint roller–it picks up lint and a whole lot more. For example, got a problem with shedding pet hair? Roll the Schticky over the hair and the hair sticks to the Schticky. For quick cleaning of the roller, all you have to do is rinse under the faucet.

The commercial claims to:

  • Works on fabrics from wool to velvet
  • Can do multiple surfaces; you don’t have to go from vacuum to broom
  • Pick up pet hair from clothes or the sofa
  • Great for cobwebs, curtains or other hard to reach places
  • Its slippery when it is wet and sticky when dry

So does it work?

Works on fabrics from wool to velvet:  It does work on all fabrics in picking up debris.  It works on cloth, but it also works on a granite counter top to pick up crumbs.

Pick up hair: Yes it does work to pick up hair. Especially if you leave hair in your bathroom after a blow dry. The lint roller doesn’t clean hair in a flash, but it is quick. You may have to help the hair off with your hands occasionally. It picks up pet hair quick and cleans it quick too.

Additional uses: I’m always finding other uses for the ‘lint roller.’ First, I can clean crumbs up from my desk. I also can clean up my car seat if I absolutely have to eat on the go. I’m sure there are a hundred other ways to use the roller.

Ordering process: We ordered the product online — without any issues. The bonus big Shticky is not 100% free as you have to pay a separate processing change. Fine. About a week after we ordered, I got a call that the product has shipped and I was eligible for a gas card. I did not get the gas card as it required membership in a program.

Bottom Line

This is a great tool for neat freaks — or people who want to stay clean.

MDM’s three-year old black Bombay cat, Stella, is fed hard food and a spoon-full of moist food as a treat twice a day.  Stella has been spoiled with Sheba® but recently has appeared to be bored with it.  A sale trial-size of Friskies Selects Indoor®, by Purina® Chunky Chicken & Turkey Casserole changed that boredom immediately.  She not not only devoured the chunks of chicken, but licked the bowl clean!

With meals including Chunky Chicken & Turkey Casserole; Homestyle Turkey Dinner; Flaked Ocean Whitefish; Herbed Salmon Entree; Classic Chicken Entree; Hearty Beef Stew with Barley; Braised Beef Diner with Barley; and Saucy Seafood Bake, it’s not hard to see why.
