Went to a paint-your-pottery place for a friend’s baby shower and got sucked in.
I had them paint the words for me, but I’m guessing the instructions left weren’t understood. Eh, maybe I’ll do another one later on and this can be my secondary one.
One side says “Give us this day our daily bread” and the other side says “Live a life of love.”
In case you were wondering what 15 pounds of bacon looks like. I canned up a bunch of bacon bits. Need to finish it out. Also canned up the bacon grease, but it did something funny, I may need to redo that.
My adorable little box from an Azure Standard order. Some gluten-free flour blends to play around with, some brown rice syrup (again, to play around with), and a ton of Pomona Pectin. Not pictured is my box of muffin papers, and the wheat I have still sitting in the van to freeze (I’m going to let it freeze out there for a few days before starting to repackage).
Today I also went and got my half a pig.
And a bunch of lard. I didn’t think to ask/have the butcher separate the leaf fat from the other stuff, next time. I got all the pork fat from this pig as the person who bought the other half didn’t want it – yay! 31.something pounds, yay! Too tired to render it today, maybe tomorrow. Worked out to be about $2.42/lb, or if you count the pork fat, $2.08/lb. Yeehaw!
