Not much news to report. As usual, I am going to start this year by promising to post more frequently -- we will see if it happens!
Some time ago, we bought half a pig for the freezer from our structural engineer. At the time he asked if we wanted the head as well and of course I said yes. It has languished hidden in the freezer since then, until the other day when Greg accidentally defrosted it thinking it was a leg of lamb! So we are now making brawn...
The recipe began by telling us to remove all the bristles on the head. We eventually discovered that a razor works much quicker than tweezers!
In other news, I had a small little accident in my car before Xmas on an icy patch of road and Jon has wonderfully been fixing my car for me -- so I made him this lovely apple pie -- I hope it tastes as good as it looks!
Other than that, not much really... Some rain, but what else is new? :)
