Noway! You're a farm girl!
And sounds like, a good cook, too. Mmm!
grew up with countryside all around me, on the very outskirts of the greater london suburbs. in most directions there were crops, farmland, horses. then lived more town-life, surrounded by grey concrete, glass, metal, bright lights, night-life... got engaged to H, moved to america and live with him on what was once a working farm and is now pasture and woodland with ponds. neighbour grazes his cattle here and H's son raises a few pigs and needed to slaughter a couple. he killed and cleaned them before bringing them over here where we skinned and butchered the meat. first time i've done that with a pig!
just ate a big slice of the meatloaf...and it's good! moist, tender, a sweet/salt/peppery combo. his mother, though, who likes all her food cooked to virtual pap found it ' a little tough'. it wasn't, not at all.
she's already murdered the green beans for thursday; they must have cooked at least 3 hours. *sigh* such a crime against the beautiful crisp green beans from our garden.
