(And the Chi-Trib article
Well first of all you've reminded me that I haven't made rumaki in a long time, and I've got to put an end to that right now. (Let's see now, chicken livers or duck livers???) Second, also reminded I haven't had a BLT in a long time (or BELT, same + a fried egg), gotta do that again soon too. And club sandwiches...
But no baby back ribs??? Oh nooooooes!
And my pork chops in pineapple curry sauce??? Won't be quite the same without pork although it can be transliterated into chicken etc.
I'm very fond of Asian cuisine, and you know how that works out: Choice of chicken, beef, pork or shrimp (shrimp $2 extra). I guess if we don't got pigs I'll just cook the same recipes with chicken/beef/shrimp/lamb etc.
The Chi-Trib story doesn't make a lot of sense to me, maybe because I don't understand farming? If the farmers are culling their pig herds (flocks? covens?) then they won't have anything to sell next year... Seems to me like they're going to be in a bad place if they cut the supply. I don't see the price/demand curve giving them an equivalent income if the supply drops and demand increases at the higher price. Like I said, people will just switch to chicken/beef/shrimp/lamb (shrimp $2 extra).
Maybe chicken is the new red meat...
Um, could somebody please make me a porktini?
Shaken, not stirred...
