Friday Link Roundup.

Just a Horse. Because.

So, apparently, most die with nothing.   Born with nada, die with nada. I see this a lot.

Jowl.

img_2904Huh.

Saw this yesterday, thought it would be interesting to cook for new years day.   Apparently, its a southern thing – pork jowl with black eyed peas.  No peas for us.

Its going to be like the ox tail we did some time ago.

thumbnail_img_2907Instead, we braised the jowl in the broiler with red potatos, onions, etc., then put it in the crock pot for the day.   We shall see.
