British Sausage Week 2008

Thanks to LittleFfarm Dairy for letting me know that it’s British Sausage Week. Hurrah for sausages!

My favourite sausage meal is bangers n mash though I’m usually happy with most sausage meals. Unfortunately, ever since we put Vicky and Albert in the freezer, I’ve gone off shop-bought sausages big time. This is because our sausages were 100% pork – we only wanted chops and roasting joints so instructed the abattoir and butcher to put everything else into the sausages with no added extras.

In fact, I think the only thing that could beat our sausages will be the day I pluck up the courage to make our own, adding leeks and herbs and spices to the meat…

Hurry up, Harold!

It willl be mine!

This photo is evidence of one of the last times Snipe was able to perform her sneaky trick of diving under a chair to get to Midge’s abandoned food bowl. Not long after this photo was taken, she got stuck and I don’t think she’s tried to get under a chair since then!

She was 6 months old at the time and really starting to leave her puppy features behind but it’s odd looking back at that photo as in comparison to her 18 month old self of today, she looks so weeny! And yet she’s got another 18 months before she’s properly mature! You gotta love Labradors…!
