I frequent the market weekly to do all-if I can get away with it-of my grocery shopping. This includes a visit to Bonners for figs and russett apples and Palm's Delicatessen for hard and salty Romano cheese, Irish soda bread (wholewheat and low GI) and the occasional locally made butter and jelly (our jam). I can pretty much get by on this for breakfast and snacks because I eat all other meals in hall or at my favorite cheap sandwich place where they know to always get my chicken peanut satay on brown baggette, the Alternative Tuck Shop.
However, because Hall was closed over the break and husbands like protein, I discovered the butcher and one other delightful find: Lardy Cakes.
As pictured, this involves, as the name implies, lard, butter, sugar, and a little flour. Perfect for our New Year's diets!
