What is That Doing in My Kitchen?

My husband's birthday present from his parents came a little early this year:
Anyone venture a guess as to what this might be and what it's doing in my kitchen? If you've been to Spain, shush! Let's see if the rest figure it out.
While you're thinking, visit me over at Scrivel...and vote. I don't know what all the stars are for, since we aren't getting paid or winning any prizes, but they sure do look nice.

  1. Boy, that was pretty expensive! (Or at least I think it is. Right?) What a nice gift!

  2. I guess it means something different when you say you want to see a little more thigh over there.

    But who is left hobbling around? I'm not sure.

  3. It's an ancient caveman turkey club. Many people don't know this, but Spanish cavemen used these to keep the senoritas in line.

    ...or maybe it's Castros farewell to office cigar.

  5. Is that Bam Bam's actual club? Awesome! I would have thought Fred and Wilma would have kept it as a keepsake...

  6. Bone-In Serrano Ham with Hoof by Campofrio
    16-18 lbs (holder not included)


    $199.00 16-18 lb/7-8 kilo / JM-03

    Quantity:



    This traditional bone-in Serrano Ham has been hung up to cure for 14 months - four months less than our Redondo Iglesias jamón serrano, which has been aged for a year and one half. The result is a milder, fresher ham which is easier to slice.

    Campofrío, the largest meat producer in Spain is introducing a full line of meat and sausages/chorizos from Spain. Their premiere product is this quality Jamón Serrano, which they cure in their state-of-the-art facility in Burgos. From beginning to end the production of these hams is scientifically monitored to recreate the ideal climatic conditions.

  15. Where's my manners? Happy Birthday to Jesus (can you tell me how to get the little accent mark in there correctly, otherwise I feel like I'm wishing the other Jesus HB late :)

  16. That's easy. It's a clock. When the big hand is on the 2 and the little hand is on the 9, that means it's ten minutes after nine.

    It would have been harder if you had obscured it more with that weird brown thing.

  20. Everybody: your comments have me cracking up! My computer is down, so I'm doing this from the public library on the sloooowest computer in Pamplona, so I can't answer you all individually.
