Anyway enough moaning, we have had a lovely warm couple of days which has seen us up in the naya all afternoon, lovely feeling the warmth of the sun and we were presented with the most spectacular sunset
A very relaxed Benji
Before Christmas I had asked if there was any wild boar being sold from the shooting, there wasn't and I didn't really think about it again. However there was a knock at the door and our spanish friend asking if we wanted half a pig, grabbed at the opportunity and for a reasonable price. The only draw back was that is what I got, 1/2 a boar. Only thing for it was to sharpen the knives, grab the hacksaw and start. Hubby disappeared toot sweet so I set about the task. It took me about 2 hours to do but ended up with meat in various cuts, ribs, fillet, 4 leg joints loads cut ready for slow cooking and bones for a broth. Suffice to say it was boar casserole for dinner and very nice it was too. I have only ever dealt with birds before as we used to have geese, ducks, chickens and pheasants at the farm, the larger animals were sent to the abattoir. Really nice to have something different as lamb is very expensive here and we rarely have beef.
have fun, take care.
