La Salsiccia!

We've spent the last few days at Joe's parents house making homemade Italian sausages: thick ones and thin ones, sweet and hot (our favorite)! It's a whole process and takes a few days. You have to buy the meat, and trim the fat and cut it up, then you add your own blend of spices, then stuff it in casings (I won't tell you what). Then you hang them to dry. We do at Joe's parents house because you need to hang them in a basement, and we don't have one. My parents and my kids and 2 ladies from our church were there as well. We needed the help because we made a LOT: over 800 pounds! Can't wait to eat it! Mmm...
