House of Dreams

My friend Nate, the one whose mom makes the tastiest brisket, constructed this glorious dream home over the holidays. I asked him if it was okay to post it, but have not heard back yet. I decided that it was just too beautiful to keep to myself, so here it is:

A friend of mine thinks that the front of the house is made of trotters. I used to think that as well, but upon closer inspection, it occurred to me that it was probably made of the same material as the chimney – sausage (is it weißwurst???). I am fairly certain that the front path is made of sauerkraut, but I am still unsure about the lawn. I have peered and squinted at this photo so many times since it landed in my inbox and the best guess I can come up with is shredded daikon… Despite loving it absolutely, in many ways this house is still a complete mystery to me.

I feel it is my duty to post a reply to this post to set the record straight. Although I do love bacon and sausage and meet as much as any human can, I am not responsible for the construction of this magical house-o-meat. I saw this image posted somewhere in the wilds of the internet and thought that my other meat addicted friends would enjoy gazing at it's porky goodness. If I could remember where I found the picture I would post a link, but alas, I cannot. Glad you have all been enjoying it though.

Thanks for the link - I love it. The finished house looks amazing! Apparently, the lawn is made of mincemeat with green food coloring, but up close it looks a lot like creamed spinach, which would be delicious.

When you sent it to me, I just assumed you guys made it since H is so crafty and good at stuff like that!
