    Default Cheap Living...

    Roger butchered a chicken for me, she dressed out at 5 lbs exactly, and she's quartered and ready for the grill. I walked around the yard harvesting what I could.



    Not a whole lot of any one thing, but enough variety for a cast iron skillet. I just won a 6pk from Tona so I think it's time to build a fire in the barbecue pit and call it a day!

    I have never done it, but ain't those carrot tops fit to eat too? in a cooked or raw state?


    And I love "Fresco de Zanahoria"......

    Por supuesto, JW, but I'm a sucker for begging eyes so my horse, Rocinante, got them. The dinner was good without 'em, though!

    I was wondering if I needed to bring my cast iron skillets with me.

    If you like your cast iron and they are broken in to suit your taste, bring them with you...of course realizing the weight factor.

    I am the same way, by the time you have other things to go with a balanced diet, veggies, and carbohydrates, ain't no body gone get up from the table not feeling full......
