Flemish Baroque

I rush home from work in a panic. Will I get there in time?  Tonight the meat man cometh. 10 minutes after I get back, the bell rings and there is the smiling face of the meat man clasping a box that contains a whole lamb. Er, a dead one.

When in need of a bit of purchase therapy, there is no better place than:  http://baticrom.com/index.php?route=common/home   It is such a great site! It takes no time to order a whole lamb and a kilo of mutton curry. I specify when I want it delivered and settle back into my chair with a gentle moan knowing that, this being Japan,  the meat man will show. The only risk is not his late or non arrival, but mine.

Pieter Aersten

Pieter Aersten painted pictures in Northern Europe in like 1550. I have always admired his butchery paintings.

Er, sorry vegetarian readers

Winter is approaching but I have lots of meat.  I fear nothing. Today I turned off the AC.
