|This loaf had me worried this morning, but seems to have come|

|That half-deer still giving us some useful joints - this a half leg|
of venison, up for roasting tomorrow for the guests.
|A new way with belly pork. Mini 'porchetta'|
|A 'Swiss roll' of belly meat with inter-leaved herbs, all rolled|
up in the skin.
|Nom nommetty nom!|
|We served our porchetta with steamed kale (2 varieties), carrots|
and white rice.
