Our friends Tom and Denise recently bought some piglets for their farm. My response to this news was "Yum!" We live in the Hogs and Hominy State, after all. Sherry assumed they were intended to be pets and reprimanded me accordingly, but after visiting the farm this weekend she learned that they will only be pets until such time as they weigh 250 pounds, at which time they will be converted into barbecue, bacon and other tasty pork dishes. Tom has a couple of big cookers on the property, so I suspect a pig pickin' is in their future. I've named this one Chris P. Bacon.
