Today has been a perfect day!
We roasted two goats and as Isa said, had a feast!
This morning, Gregorio, Jose Luis and Luis slaughtered and prepared the goats.
Isaac led the first goat up and started whispering, as he held on to the leg, "Hide the knives! Hide the knives!"
All the kids came out to watch the slaughter. It didn't phase them at all. They were too excited about the meat.
It did phase some of the Americans and Germans. :)
They skinned it and taught Isa on the second goat (the other kids were sent to church).
They laid out the skins to dry.
After church, the guys hinted around about cooking the livers.
I made fried goat liver and onions. It was delicious! (Bad picture)
Then the fun began. We all gathered around the grill. Sang songs, visited, laughed.
The weather was even cool enough for some to wear jeans and a sweat shirt! Not me.
We don't waste anything here. One American man asked me where we got giant mushrooms. "Those are um, mountain oysters." "What are those?" "Ummm"
Then the food was ready! And a feast it was!
There was very little left in the end. Some legs and some rice. But that will be eaten tomorrow.
