So about a week ago deviantART had a community challenge for a new badge based on a popular deviation that was on their site since 2006. The objective was to draw said subject, in then you’d receive the badge. The original piece is a pear with a very human mouth, known as the Biting Pear of Salmanca.

 

I got mine, all right. While the caption doesn’t make sense, it does hearken back to when I first saw this; on a meme on 9gag in which the pear had been saying something similar.

 

It’s been a bit since I’ve posted something that wasn’t me coloring, but this had a different grade of advancement and did want to share. April Fools.

So when my aunt came to visit this holiday season, she whipped up some pepper pot for my mom. Sadly they didn’t have lamb for it (that was used on curry instead), so she used a chunk of goat meat in its creation.

 

Apparently you let this stew in a crock pot overnight to cook. I have to get the specifics again on how to create. But you add pepper and spice stuff to it, hence the name.

 

This was my first exposure to the dish, and the first time I ate goat. It actually wasn’t too bad; this one wasn’t tender and very chewy. Otherwise, it typically goes with bread and you use it to suck up the gravy.

 

It was a welcome change to get to eat a more genuine Guyanese dish.
