You wouldn't know it from my silence over the past few days, but things have been busy in the NorCal Cazadora/Hunter Angler Gardener Cook household.Well, at least on the HAGC side. While I've been kicking back, Boyfriend has been playing the part of butcher with all sorts of goodies we've brought home lately, including the pig I got last weekend.
What he does with the fish, birds and mammals we fish and hunt is truly amazing - the kind of stuff many people turn over to professionals. You can get a glimpse of it in the slideshow below. And lest you think I've been a complete slob, I did actually cook him dinner for his troubles. To check it out, just click on the "play" button below the mysterious dark space...
Oh, you want recipes? Boyfriend is preparing a how-to on the sausage making. And the dinner I made? It included:
- Toasted pumpkin seeds
- Fresh salsa
- Fresh guacamole
- Fresh corn tortillas
- Boyfriend's chorizo
- Seared pork flank, marinated in garlic and lime
- And of course, the Monterey Taco
Recipes? Hell, it took three hours and half a bottle of wine to make it, and another hour or two to bring you the slideshow. I think I'll skip the recipes for now.
But it sure was good...
