Warm here today, too, but it is cooling down well at night. We were just happy when they lifted the burn ban! We are addicted to camp fires, lol.
Tonight we're having Mummy Dogs (pigs in a blanket made to look like mummies) and sweet potato fries and maybe some sauteed swiss chard I need to pick and use so more can grow. We didn't get around to carving the pumpkins so I'm about to go get the kids started cleaning the guts out. We'll do that and eat crap tonight, lol. I bought regular ole hotdog weiners this time instead of Hebrew National (we're broke, lol).
Oh, and the ham I cooked wasn't cured. I am needing to clear my freezers of all pork because we have 2 more feral pigs out there getting FAT and they need to go very soon so we can make room for more to be trapped in the coming months. It makes me absolutely SICK, but some new neighbors we met have been feeding our pigs and they brought leftover beef stew from *supper that night* to feed them. I can't wrap my head around that. Why wouldn't they just eat it for lunch the next day? They said they are so glad to be feeding our pigs because they usually just throw away *so much food it's disgusting* (their words). If it's so disgusting to throw it away, why not find ways to use it? Whatever. Our pigs are eating very, very, very well, and I'll be able to get a good amount of lard this time, I would think! Saves me from having to buy corn or oats in addition to all the scraps they get from us. Have y'all ever met people that waste food like that? I don't know if it's where I live, but these are not the first ones I met like that. Our old neighbors would throw away a whole uneaten apple, orange, or banana out of the lunch their kids took to school just because it had been in the lunch box all day!
