That's what I use. It comes from an American cook book...you know how they bastardize the language .....

I'm in Toronto, by the way....Belleville is one of my coffee stops on the route to Quebec or Ottawa....

At least you know what it means - unlike the those "island" countries across the pond that call ground beef "mince"...

Designations: (These vary slightly, but are standardized here in the States)
Ground beef is 70-75% meat / 30-25% fat
Ground chuck is 80% meat / 20% fat
Ground sirloin is 85-90% meat / 15-10% fat

James - do you get a lot of cracked eggs that way? To help avoid the shells from cracking during cooking - fill the pan with cold water, add the eggs and bring to a boil over medium heat. Also, adding a tablespoon of vinegar to the water will aid in peeling the shells off the eggs when cooled. (Also aids in the eggshells taking color well when dying them at Easter time.)

you may want to cook the cookies for 10 - 12 minutes, or you can just eat the cookie dough.. either way.. its still good
