Fatty Fridays - Forbidden Pig Edition

Happy Friday everyone. Hopefully if you're not already heading to wherever you'll be spending the Holidays, you've got some time off ahead of you.

Me? I've got a 5:30 flight back to the Sunshine State. Nothing but a week of reading and playing the harmonica on the beach...and probably blogging.

Last night though I had a chance to visit Jaleo in Penn Quarter and try the prized Ibérico hams from Spain.



I included this in the Fatty Fridays section because, well...there's a lot of delicious fat on those oh so thin slices of piggy goodness. The taste, as Steve stated, is very similar to prosciutto, but sweeter.

But for now, I've got a pecan pie that an old friend of mine just brought over...and it's got my name all over it.

Have a great Friday folks! Next time you hear from me, I'll be on the beach.

I was at the Penn Quarter Jaleo last night, too! But apparently I missed out on that delicious ham :(
