The perfect Christmas present for the perfect man

My husband keeps telling me I am the luckiest woman on earth to be married to him (he has a healthy sense of self confidence). But I think we all know that it is actually he who is the luckiest man on earth – to be married to me (I have a sense of humour)!


So, what does the perfect wife buy her husband for Christmas? Something that will keep him occupied for the whole of Boxing Day of course (it’s the gift that keeps on giving).

I can’t actually tell you or I will give away his present, but…part of the gift includes:

  • 5 metres of pig intestine
  • 5 metres of sheep intestine
  • 2kgs of Otway Free Range pork shoulder
  • spices
  • string
  • stale bread
  • a mystery present that helps put this all together (not much of a surprise, but I have never been good at secrets).

Really, gifts don’t get much better than this. I bet you wish you had thought of it yourself really! I can’t wait to see how excited he is on Christmas day.

My butcher Darren at Market meats in Camberwell’s Fresh Food Market sort of gives me that ‘here comes the crazy lady’ again look when I approach. I tried to get a photo of that look today, but the camera battery was flat, and when I changed it, the memory card was full! Obviously we weren’t meant to have a photo of Darren. Anyway, I am very excited, and Darren is vaguely amused.

Boxing day we are planning to have a few friends over, use this new present, and make Dutch doughnuts (Oliebollen). I will blog more about that then!

      Thanks Vincent for your suggestion! Great guess, but I didn’t mention procuring 20 litres of blood. Getting warm! Have another go.
