HoniAnn is spending a week in Fish Creek, Louisiana at her quilting partner, Marilyn’s, family farm. I love that name, Fish Creek. Early settlers gave their communities simple names reflective of their surroundings, much as the Indians did in naming their newborns. Fish Creek is right up there with Woman Hollering Creek, my all-time favorite. You’ll cross WHC on I-10 as you drive toward San Antonio. I would love to know what the locals must have heard to have attached that name to it. Ghostly, don’t you think?
Anyway, HoniAnn took a pork belly with her as her hostess loves our pork. Marilyn started the belly by searing it in an iron skillet on both sides then putting it in a slow cooker on low for 4 hours. Mind you, there were no seasonings added. Just the pork, please. They raved about it.
The lesson here? Start with good product and keep it simple. Let the meat speak for itself. Here’s what it looked like:
