Piggy piggy deliciousness.

It was Matt's birthday yesterday, and I know he loves pork, so I trucked down to our local butcher and got a lovely belly for his dinner last night.

Our butcher only has happy free range pork, so I'm pretty guilt free about eating pig now (I stopped entirely for about four years after spending a week in a piggery during my study).

I slow roasted it on a bed of thyme and garlic, adding vegetables about half way through.

It was my first attempt at crackling, and although I had my doubts, it was a huge success.

He was a happy man. I think.

I reckon he'd be a happy man with that pig!
