In honour of #sausageweek…the call of the sausage…

Valerie Chicken

It’s that time of year. The run up to Christmas and long dark cold nights ahead of us and the calling of the hot sausage and mustard begins…

Now is the time to start thinking about those pork chops, roasting joints, casseroles and baked sausages in onion gravy…

Swanbridge Porkers are sold in 3 kilo bags of about 30 – 34 big, hand-twisted sausages.

Swanbridge Porkers also come as joints of pork in a box. A box always contains 12 kilos of fresh pork – chops, shoulder and belly, leg and maybe a kidney. It is lean meat with about an inch of fat and skin – which makes fab crackling!

#CountrySmile #WorldofJoy

 

Sometimes you just have to learn to say, YES!

All those things I said I really wanted to do but didn’t. Lack of confidence, lack of opportunity, lack of time. Lack of effort, usually.

So then I found myself in a place where saying yes was acceptable and haven’t looked back.

It started with saying yes to pigs, then writing, then speaking, then speaking some more but this time into a mic. I’m not likely to be headhunted by #BBCRadio4 any time soon but am so very grateful for the chance to talk with other people about their passions, our passions, the things we love.

So, #CountrySmile here we come:

World of Joy (#CountrySmile) on Radio Cardiff podcast: Helen Joy chats with the people she meets along her way – smallholder, artist, writer, speaker & critic, Helen shares her life with a wonderful variety of folk and animals. From piglets to hot tubs, dancers to spray paint – join her and her guests as they talk life, the universe and all things muddy, inevitably.

Who fancies joning me for a chat? Starting this week. Message me.

And always very happy to talk #pigs

Theme music will be: “Electroacoustic Samba III”, by Eduardo Reck Miranda

”The piece is part of a suite of 10 pieces of electronic music exploring Brazilian rhythms. The one I sent you, uses mostly the sounds & rhythms of a Brazilian instrument of African origin, called “berimbau”(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berimbau).”

 

Standing on the shoulders of giants:
