Happy Birthday Ursula. Enjoy your day with plenty of smoked and cured goodies with of course, the appropriate refreshments. Just don't overdo it.

Thank you Red, Janlab, Jan, Bob and Gulyas for your thoughtful and kind messages.
It's lovely to be remembered on your birthday.
I have been somewhat quiet on the forum lately, because it's just too hot to make sausages, but the noise you might hear is the chomping through of those already made.
It's harvest time here, and there is so much good stuff growing in the garden that it makes my mouth water. Good for the budget too. In fact, my birthday dinner was a big bowl of tomato salad. Delish!
I have also been busy training for a trek in the Himalayas in March, which takes a lot of time and energy. But in May, when I am back, I will jump back in to making all those goodies that have been enjoyed over the last year and more.
Thank you again for the lovely messages.
Best wishes Ursula

Thanks for the birthday wishes - we went away for the weekend for some r&r as we are in the midst of replacing our water system which originates in a spring 1500 feet away and crosses a road - very messy :twisted: However, last night on instructions from DW I pulled a loin from the freezer to replenish our ham supply and this Friday I put the capicola into a umai bag. The cumberland sausage I made last week is gone - a big hit. Life goes on :smile:

Aaron from Downunder! Happy Birthday! I hope you're sitting right now with glass of that fine Australian shiraz and heaping plate of charcuterie and cheeses on the table! Enjoy your day and I still want to see that goat prosciutto in the near future!

Hey Russ & Betsy thanks for that :grin:We were hoping a trip north to BC might be in the works for you folks. If you follow the weather you might have noticed that BC has had a phenomenal winter unlike the rest of the continent. We are stuck with local travel this year after a major construction project to replace our rural water system :evil:

Mine was 2 weeks ago, but I digress. One of those 'milestone' ones I guess.
