A Pig in Sheep Clothes producing Kobe Beef

Filed under: Animals, Humor — K2 in Canada @ 9:41 AM

Saw the picture on facebook this AM which reminded me that I love pigs. When still living in good old Germany my biggest wish was to see wild boar roaming free in the forests. Unfortunately I never did. The closest I ever came to a “wild” pig was on a hiking/camping trip to Corsica many many years ago. I still have a scar on my thumb to show for the encounter. I never tried to feed wild animals ever since :-). Now I am looking for bears rather than boar when hiking – hence the below picture triggered my brain.

 

Obviously I had to find out a bit more about it. Mangalica are an Hungarian breed that almost went extinct. Now they are a prized breed for the tasty, fatty meat they produce – just like Kobe beef is a high fat, tasty beef. Apparently this is healthy meat: high in unsaturated fats, natural antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids. The tasty pork now forms the backbone of Hungarian haute cuisine. In Budapest, the mangalica even gets its own culinary festival. Who new?

Happy St Patrick’s Day

Filed under: Humor — K2 in Canada @ 11:21 PM

I never knew that St Patrick’s day is an official holiday in Newfoundland and Labrador. Not in BC though, too bad.

Colouring the beer GREEN is not an Irish tradition! I like my Guinness as is – dark chocolate brown.

I did my first ever camping/hiking trip in Ireland and fell in love with all three – camping/hiking/Ireland. The people were super nice. It was a long time ago mind you and I never managed to go back. One day I will. Maybe I’ll write up what I remember from that trip on one of these days.

All the Irish I know have a great sense of humor, here a bit of a classic to celebrate St Patrick’s Day:
