This is a "country style" pork chop butchered the Justin Severino way. It was dinner for three of us a couple of nights ago—for me, for Bob, and for Logan, who eats like a much-older boy than he is. (He'll be three at the end of the month—let me know if you want to send him a birthday card, and I'll e-mail you an address.)
ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE BEST KIND
Fabulous news for those of you in the Mountain View area. Justin Severino and Jim Dunlop will be at the Mountain View Farmers Market starting this Sunday, January 21, from 9 AM until 1 PM. Look for the "Severino's Community Butcher" logo on the white van, and look for a couple of young (compared to me), handsome (scruffy) goofballs with coolers. They are bringing, in Justin's words: "Everything. Every cut of pork, three kinds of paté, sausages, meat in jars, stock," and more. They might even have blood sausages. Justin also says, "Bring hundred dollar bills and don't expect change." Heh.
These guys have some serious talent, and more than that, they have complete commitment. Now, y'all tell Justin and Jim I told you to introduce yourselves and say "howdy," and grace them with their due reward. Happy Year of the Pig. (Well, in 31 days.)
Thanks for visiting.
