I had to reschedule my monthly meat CSA pickup to today because I’l be away on my usual day. I journeyed to the wilds of Brookline to retrieve ground beef, a five-pound chicken, four lamb rib chops, two pork chops, some pork cutlets, and a package of bacon.
But this post isn’t about what I picked up, but what I didn’t take from the freebie bin, which was full of leaf lard and pig’s feet. That’s right, I turned down lard and pig’s feet because my freezer is too full. It’s a good thing the weather’s cooling down a bit, because it’s time for me to do some serious cooking.
