Feelin Fancy

So. Today I woke up with a sore throat that is different than my usual, it feels like I have ulcers in my throat. So after helping my hubby case up some boudin, I’ve been reclining on the couch with Season 2 of Virgin River and using a very good numbing throat spray every two hours.

The reason I’m feeling fancy is because yesterday he bought us a new garbage can, all you do is wave your hand over the top and it opens and closes on its own. 😁

My new trash can.

I took a video of the action but it is not showing up in my picture files. 






He also bought a couple of pieces of new equipment to make processing the boudin more efficient, so after a few hiccups, we have boudin ready for the freezer. We had so many hiccups because the new equipment needs to be bolted down to something and we need to refine our system but I’m sure these little things will get worked out. 

He is having more difficulty sealing the bags of links with the Food Saver. I don’t know if there is too much moisture or what, but he will continue to work on it. Luckily, it came with ziplock bags and they can be vacuum sealed with the hand accessory.

For any who don’t know, bounding is a mixture of meat and rice packed in sausage casings. There are as many types of boudin as sausage. Ours was made with pork butt, spices, and brown rice. 

Hopefully, the boudin tastes as good after smoking as the green opinion sausage did! 😋

  1. That is too cool about the garbage pal! I feel fancy every time I use my soap dispenser in my bathroom! I will be praying about your throat! Does Dave have a sore throat as well? I think the only time I have ever had Boudin is when I was at your house for a BBQ. I do not think I did not like it but you know how I am with any kind of meat. I fed anything it was probably spicy!

    • Thank you! I love it!
      Dave doesn’t have a sore throat per say, but is noticing the ear to throat kind of weird feeling like I have. Maybe he is right, and sinus drainage is just making my throat sore, but there are weird white spots that look and feel like ulcers and I need something to completely numb it, or it feels like needles ticking in my throat.
      Yes, the boudin was probably spicy, normally it’s made with dirty rice and spices. Dave put some jalapeños in this batch but the brown rice may temper it some. It will be interesting to see how it turns out! Stay tuned. 😊🤗❤️
