Last weekend was Gavins birthday so we decided to try out a ham that I had put into cure a couple of months ago. Being slightly absent minded this weekend I decided that a 3 kilo joint of ham would not be sufficient meat for ourselves, 4 adults and 1 child, and our friends from down the road, 3 adults and 1 child, so I decided to go and supplement our tiny ham with a purchase of not one but 2 chickens to go with the tiny ham.
Well what can I say the meal was in fact an epic eating fest. Poor Patrick ate so much I thought he was going to expire, needless to say we had a whole chicken and half the ham roast left. No matter, it was efficient use of the oven being on and we have consumed chicken and ham salad and chicken risotto subsequent to that event.
Apologies for not inviting everyone round to help eat all the meat which was deliciously awesome.
I will see you all soon preferably after 2 now much needed pilates class to help balance the equilibrium of an inordinate amount of over-eating. Yum yum.
I am farming sheep and goats on the Dordogne/Gironde border with my husband and our 3 children. We have an on farm butchery and sell our meat direct to the public via the markets and delivery points in our local area
