Food Post

Because it's been a while since I've done a food post...

We've been enjoying lots of pork this year thanks to our very productive Tamworth piggies. This last round we took to the butcher we had the ground made into hot Italian sausage ropes, which are absolutely delicious. Here I am making a sourdough calzone with spinach, hot Italian sausage, homemade sauce, and mozzarella cheese. (And see that corner behind me where the coat tree is? That's where I want to put my new cookstove that I'm trying to talk Jim into.)

This is my baking center, which you can see is lower than the rest of the counter. I love it. It's the perfect height for rolling out cookies and crusts, kneading dough, and kid cooking. It's the short part of our "L" shaped island, with the longer part a standard-height breakfast bar where we do most of our eating because the kitchen table is usually covered with projects and clutter, as you can also see in the photo above.

Easy, fast, and deeeeelicious! C'mon, take a bite... Yummmm.

Yummmm is right! I'll have to try that, it looks dee-lish.

Great post, Danielle. Hope you get your cookstove.

That looks SOOO good. What do you want for a cook stove? I'd like to get one too but need to do some more research.

This looks so yummy!

Oh, that looks great! I should have some of our pigs made into Italian sausage. I've been studying up on sausage making and may try a batch.

I'd love to have a cook stove too.

OH my goodness...that looks so good! I can almost smell it!

Guess I might have to consider Italian sausage on our next hog. We bought our very first this past year from a farm about a mile from us. I was so proud of it being so close to home with our 100 mile diet challenges this past summer.
