We have been so busy traveling; I’m way behind on my blogging. I’m writing this post with the blogger app on my iPad in a hotel room, so i have no control over where the photo goes.
I haven’t told you about the wonderful gift we received from Sławo, the Polish Major in charge the building where Ed works. Sławo’s family butchered a pig for their Easter feast, and right after Easter, Ed brought home 3 jars, sausage, pate, and smalec. It was all wonderful, but I must rave about the smalec, which is a lard speed with bits of meat, and other seasonings. I’ve only had smalec once before, but there is no comparison between this homemade version and the dish I was served in a restaurant.
I couldn’t stop eating it, but the funny thing is, a Polish friend said that if I was eating smalec, I should remember to drink vodka to keep my liver healthy.
