Has anyone ever told you that the Jones live "High on the Hog"? That is a very common phrase which means that the Jones (or who ever you are talking about) live and eat very well. In other words, they have lots of money and live the life that all that money can provide. I often wondered what that meant, but I guess it just means that they can afford the more expensive cuts of meat. So, I guess the tenderlions, or back strap or what every you prefer to call that meat on either side of the rear spine, is the more expensive and tender cut. I sure do like that cut of meat, especially when taken from a fresh killed deer.
Speaking of pork, have any of you had the opportunity to eat some genuine Italian Prosciutto? Way back a few years after we got married, a friend of my Father-in-law's gave him one and he in turn gave it to us. It didn't need refregerated and it was hard as a rock. You had to work at it to get a piece sliced off and then your jaw muscles got a good wookout, but it was sure worth it. Yum, yum!!! Of course it was a little on the salty side, but as I just said, yum, yum. Now, you all have yourselves a great day, you hear?
