Always back up your work folks. You might just get robbed like me and lose months of work.

Anyways, on to bigger and better things.

Farm to table!

So to be comfortable with the idea of continuing to eat meat and to truly appreciate and understand an aspect of where food comes from, I thought I needed to experience what it took to put a chicken on the dinner table. In this case, to ethically raise (lovingly cared for of by a couple of great friends), slaughter, de-feather, clean, butcher and cook a couple of chickens, whom I'm grateful for providing sustenance for myself and friends.

For those interested, you read more about the experience here and see photos (fyi, there's no blood):  http://www.laclairiere.net/2013/wherein-the-julias-visit-each-others-countries-and-ed-makes-us-dinner/

(this particular bird being held is still laying eggs.)
