    Thanks to a recipe supplied by E.B. I made this wonderful Carbonara for three. It tasted absolutely wonderful and I will make it again and again. I religiously followed the recipe with the exception a bit more garlic as I really like garlic. Oh! … my pan was bigger than 20 mm by a long shot.

    Home-made lasagna....you click through to my flickr stream to see some "making of" shots. One of the best parts is lots of leftovers.

    While I know where your flickr is others may not and it is a good stream so maybe a link to it would help?

    You can just click on the photo and it'll take you there. Here's another wider view of a lasagna dinner my wife cooked last week, just about ready to eat...

    Also with the 20 - my favorite food lens.

    Yum yum. Out of interest, what part of the world are you from and how is it cooked? Spit roast? (rotating shaft through length of body with a bed of coals underneath?) We do a similar thing here but usually the head and skin is removed first or even the whole animal is boned out, because people like to live in denial of the origin of their meat.

    From wikipedia :
    "Lechón is a pork dish in several regions of the world, most specifically Spain and its former colonial possessions throughout the world. The word lechón originated from the Spanish term leche (milk); thus lechón refers to a suckling pig that is roasted. Lechón is a popular cuisine in the Philippines, Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, other Spanish-speaking nations in Latin America, and Spain. The dish features a whole roasted pig cooked over charcoal. Nowadays in most of Latin America, the original use of a suckling pig has given way to a medium-sized adult pig."
    Lechon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    the 'insides' are removed and it usually roasts for 4-6 hours.
    it`s yummy.
