And this week's winner of the Friday Photo Fun contest is Alex, of A Languedoc Journal. He guessed that Erik's mystery object was a leg of ham...and that's exactly what it is. So, congrats Alex! PicklePits was technically correct with her guess of animal hoof, so I'm including her in today's post too, but the link goes to Alex, since this is what I was looking for:
A lovely, mouth-watering Spanish ham. If you've never tried this and you have the chance, definitely do. Having a pig's leg, hoof and all, in your kitchen might seem a bit odd at first, but after you taste it, you'll forget all about how it looks.
Now I'm hungry, so I'll leave you to drool over the photo of the ham, while I go get myself some of the real thing.
