    I lived in Ireland for a few years and one of the things that shocked me the most was going to the grocery store and seeing unrefrigerated eggs sitting on the shelf. I thought it was almost barbaric and I couldn’t imagine how many people got sick from such a backwards practice. Now I know […]

  • Why you should eat Lard

    I don’t know what it is about pigs, but I love raising them.  Of all the animals we have, pigs have been the easiest to take care of, needed the least attention and hey, they give us bacon.  But don’t forget the other fantastic product they give us: Lard Eww lard, right?  I know that’s […]
