See? It just keeps getting more perfect.

My only hesitation on chickens in the backyard is...city rats.

There is a small shopping center behind our garden wall. After switching to a metal trashcan, we are no longer bothered by them...but I'll bet chickens would be a lure. I've even found a coop that I would like to get. And the fact the city allows up to four hens in our very historic neighborhood is so tempting.

We would have nice chickens that lay nice eggs!

And you know...I'm hesitant to plant a cherry tree for the same reason.

Rats....*shudders*

We have neighborhood city foxes too. One would think they would drive off the rats but the foxes are afraid of the rats....which look as big as cats.

Oh my.

Now I have a large quantity of goose liver pate.

Anyone know how this stuff freezes?
Unless you made pate out of those livers, you don't have pate. YET!

You will have to make it.

Yes, the livers freeze beautifully, and yes, the pate will freeze, but less beautifully.

So my advice is to freeze the livers uncooked and make pate when you have found a recipe you want to make. Or when you're getting ready to throw a shindig.

Lucky you!

Now, these livers are not foie gras, unless the geese have been through gavage, so any recipe for chicken or duck liver pate will work for the goose liver.

I have made the pate, and it is quite nice. We have been snacking on it and I have a small bit left.

I understand the difference between foie gras and goose livers, which is why I said I had goose livers.
