The standard in Belgium (lard for steak)

Every supermarket in B and NL carries Blanc de Boeuf/Ossewit (aka beef tallow)

Well it's the 4th, Bill, so we're going to celebrate kicking your type out of our land (that we strong-armed from some other folks) by eating dead animals and blowing up the sky.

Pork ribs and I believe my mom's green bean, potato, tomato salad are on the docket here. Not sure what I'll be tasked to help with: we've got the whole family getting together so it'll be fun to see everyone.

Ah yes, happy good riddance day :P.
(I could actually justify celebrating now that Sprog #2 has re-applied for her left pondian passport.)

Funny I thought the Brits just tired of the expense and foolishness. The idea that we kicked their b... was behind our invading the north of the border colonies. Didn't fare too well. Had to repaint the Presidents residence after the Brits paid him a visit.

As to food I got in my lamb order. Got belly to make pseudo bacon and liver for pate. Just fried up a bit and used the old fashioned meat chopper to blend it with the butter, spices and plant stuff. Very mild and I think tasty. Will serve at a picnic tomorrow and see what others think.

Next week will start on curing a belly piece.

Word!

The best chips I had in Britain were in the Black Country Living Museum from their 1930s Chip Shop which are fried traditionally in beef drippings/tallow/lard.

They filmed Peaky Blinders ( Peaky Blinders (TV series - Wikipedia) there but unfortunately the chippie is behind the pay barrier so access would cost £15 per year.

For those who understand Jamaican English: my food preference is summed up rather well in this song by Macka B:

Anyway, it's good to know that traditional British chips are not suitable for me.
