The beer is from our last party. I captured it because it keeps surprising me every time I open our fridge. I'm hesitant to throw it away; surely someone will want it. Or, maybe I can find a recipe to use it up. Doesn't Irish cooking use a lot of it? Unfortunately, my favorite Irishman just moved back to County Cork, or wherever. Okay, well, anyone in the Brooklyn area who'd like three chilled beers, stop by.
That lard is for tamales. Oh, have I not mentioned I'm a tamale making machine? I am.
