Pig Feet!!!

Well, FOOT actually.

Since my Dad is visiting I thought I would treat him to a favourite boyhood dish of his, something my Nan used to make for him, and which he has mentioned in recent years as being something that he missed. Trotters. Pigs feet.

I'll be honest I didn't really fancy trying one myself. I'm not squeamish when it comes to food AT ALL but I wasn't sure how it would turn out. And no one else wanted to try it! But my Dad really wanted one. So when I took him to my local butcher the other day I got one for him and promised I would cook it for him today.

I had to Google a recipe. But I found one here: "soul food and southern cooking" and adapted it slightly (in that I had no BBQ sauce so I used Brown Sauce, a fav of my dad's, and I only cooked 1 foot instead of 4).

Hubby let me have his last disposable razor to shave the hair off :oD

So I boiled this thing up, broke it up as much as I could, and served it to my dad in a large bowl, with a second empty bowl for the bones, for his lunch today.

The rest of us had sandwiches.

And he LOVED it! Scoffed the lot and asked for the recipe. He said that it was even better than he ones his mum made when he was young.

I might actually try it myself next time.....

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
