Day 366: Did You Know We Eat Guinnea Pigs?

Please note: If you are queasy at the site of blood or death, please consider skipping this post. Though we are both vegetarians, (me for my whole life and Benj for the past 8 years) we have decided to eat guinnea pigs while living in Musho. The community still knows that we don't eat other forms of meat, but because the guinnea pig such a special meal for the people of Musho, we have given in. Guinnea pigs are often raised in the kitchens, running around the dark warm area, inbreeding and creating a dirty environment. We're excited to tell you that all of the families that have a new cocina have moved their guinnea pigs into cages out of the kitchen. They don't have very much meat on them usually... and are served with a pile of potatoes!

So, if you want to see a few pictures of the cooking process (from life to the fry pan), read on!
