Feeling Shattered and Snow

Today was my first craft market of the year,  it left me feeling shattered.

I did some meal preps yesterday
 Some pork crackling for Martin, it was the rind off a joint I was preparing, one of our home reared pork joints.
 Pulled pork it was left to marinade all day before being popped in the oven. We are having it tomorrow.
I also did a couple of slow roasted lamb shanks with Rosemary Thyme and garlic all home grown and the lamb was home reared.
we had them for dinner this evening, the meat just fell off the bone, really tender and tasty.
The yogurt turned out great
 I have been having it for breakfast with some pureed fruit from last summer that was in the freezer
last night we had another snow fall
I really didn't think it would settle but it did, then overnight it froze, my car was so frozen up Martin struggled to get a door open and then we couldn't get the boot open to load all my boxes, it all had to go in through the passenger door. Even though it was brilliant sunshine the road was just a sheet of ice, by this evening the frozen snow was still out in the fields.
 I will pop a link on the recipe page for the Lamb.
