The threat of bad weather will always separate the hardcore cooks from the dilettantes. There we were, lined up next to a freezer van, waiting to score this month’s CSA delivery before the storm arrived. As always, it was worth the wait. This month’s haul included a whole chicken breast, ground beef, ground lamb, both hot and sweet Italian sausage, pork chops, and a big slab of beef shoulder.
If that wasn’t enough, there was a giveaway box with bits for the taking, so I snagged more fatback, and a big ol’ slab of leaf lard to render later. But right now, I’m set for a moth-long hibernation.
