Hey Lard Ass

What do you think this is?

Did you guess pork loins in lard, decorated with finger prints?  Then you are correct!  We call it breakfast.

Lomo en manteca is what it’s called in Spanish and you spread it on toast.  Seriously.

There are lots of different mantecas (lards), with various spices and bits of meat floating around in there.

Does it sound strange to you?  Then trying explaining the attraction of peanut butter to someone in Europe.



  1. While I trust that it may be hard to explain it; peanut butter just is good, whereas (and though I have never tried today’s featured dish) I’m not sure it’s gonna make the top-10 list of things to spread on bread!

    I’m gonna go up stairs and have some peanut butter on raisin bread!
