It's once again that time of year for Amore's family to purchase two pigs to fatten and ... um .... slaughter. That's life in the countryside in Italy and pretty much most of rural Europe. The pigs are well-fed and well-cared for and then they're made into pancetta, prosciutto, sausages, and assorted other delicious products.
There was a particularly pretty piglet that I fell head over heels for but Amore said I wouldn't be able to part with (read: eat) this little darling when it was time. He's right, look at those gorgeous eyes!.
