The strangest thing I ate this week: what? huh?


Crispy ear from a pig that so selflessly gave its life so that a bunch of friends could eat.  OK, so it's not that strange.  And it really wasn't this week.  A few weeks ago, though.


We cooked this pig in a homemade La Caja China (Chinese Box), Cuban style.  This method of cooking involves putting food in an aluminum-lined wood box, and putting coals on the lid of the box. 


This is pretty much the most fun you can have with a box and a bag of charcoal.
