Blowing Your Own Trumpet!

The only forum that I post on, as I have mentioned before, is

There was recently a request for "Just a plain old breakfast pork sausage recipe please?". I posted my 'Every Day Pork Sausage' recipe and it was well received by Shirl, who had made the request and, who it turns out, lives near to Ashby de la Zouch and gets her meat from Ashby Farmers' Market, small world isn't it.

I thought no more of it until a whole forum thread appeared singing the sausage's praises. I couldn't believe it! Oh how I wish I could just gracefully accept praise and say thanks without making excuses as to why I don't think it's that good, could be improved etc. I guess it's 'cos I don't want to appear conceited – But, under all that bluster, I'm really chuffed!

The funny thing is, by the time these posts appeared, I'd amended the recipe to give the sausage, what I think is, a more 'rounded' flavour! So if you like a peppery sausage use the first recipe, otherwise choose the 'Every Day' Pork Sausage II recipe.

Needless to say, I forgot to take photos, so here's one of my new pride and joy - an old Berkel slicer that I bought off ebay. The ham being sliced is my Every Day Ham. 'Cor, I'm going to have to do some work in the name department, I've just realised everything is getting called 'Every Day' - I guess that's 'cos of how often we eat it!

I’ll have to get hubby to try this recipe. I know he would love one of those meat slicers if we had room!

I'm somewhat incapacitated at present so replies may take some time. Please post urgent enquiries at the forum.
