Out of the Blue

MrsBlue and I had a lovely dinner last night in honor of her birthday. We went to her favorite place, a local restaurant set on a farm where all the food is grown and raised on the grounds, and you don't actually order off the menu, but are provided with a multi-course meal based on the preferences you express to your server. The food was exceptionally fresh and interesting, and made for a nice special occasion. Weirdest moment: The server sets down a couple of reddish chips and says it is "face bacon." MrsBlue asks what that is and gets the obvious response: It's bacon made from the pig's face. I told her they should consider renaming it "TMI Bacon."

ohh pigs cheeks are not uncommon over here and are a realy delicacy. Same time I'm trying to bring American BBQ style dishes into the UK - Pulled Pork is coming together quite well.

Strangely enough - my local pig farm is owned by Kelly Brook. I know that seems strange but she went to the same schools my kids go to and her mum lives about a mile away. At the same time it's kinda disturbing to think they'll get the education as her - it's also kinda funny to think I'M filling my belly with HER meat.

For those not in the know:

My local pig farmer - Mostley SFW

She was the girl you actually liked in Piranha as well
