Glad to help!

Actually I wish I had that or stew for tonight. It's just that kind of night. I decided on scalloped potatoes, but I don't really feel like going to all that trouble right now. Plus, I'm pretty hungry already, so I will go more for speed tonight. I'm about to fix hot dogs (no buns), microwaved potato with sour cream, and peas.

We had rib steak with seasoned butter, baked potatoes with sour cream, which ran out, so we switched to home made 15% B.F. yoghurt, and red and green cole slaw.

The steak was tough, but tasty, so I am beginning to think that the 1/3 of a cow that my MIL gave us really was a dairy cow. I'm going to try a T-bone and if that is tough, I will stew, braise, or marinate everything that isn't ground. Maybe those packages labelled as part of the tenderloin actually were. With a T-bone, I will be 100% certain that it really is a T-bone.

My hubby will have to be diplomatic when he tells her about this. We are grateful for the gift, but I wouldn't want her to buy from that farmer again. She paid well over $2/pound. I only pay $4.99-5.99/kg for sirloin tip at Costco. That works out to $2.27 to $2.72 per pound, so I think she got ripped off.

My neighbor brings me fresh goodies practically weekly from his friends farm. Everything is right out of the ground, so the beets did indeed have the greens. How do you cook them? The roasted beets were delicious, btw. I cut them up and put them in a zip lock bag and shook them with some olive oil, salt and pepper. I even tasted them raw and I liked them a lot. I love the earthy taste of root vegetables.

I just add the chopped beet greens to a stir fry. You could probably steam them too. I have even chopped the stems and added them to salad.

lol, babe. gotta love the scottish. if they sit on a lump of coal, you get a diamond in two weeks.

we went out to rent my boy skis for the winter, then went to one of my favourite retaurants for dinner, the iron horse in westwood, nj. www.theironhorse.com

once again, really good food, great service.

they always offer a plate of pickles and cole slaw to start, odd as it sounds, but it is one of those quirky things that you will remember about the place that you end up looking forward to on future visits.

next up, we had their highly touted baked french onion soup. delicious as always.

for entrees, my boy had fried pierogies and sweet potato fries; dw had a chilean sea bass with hollandaise special; and i had my usual, the chattanooga chicken. it's a toasted hero roll with grilled canadian bacon, grilled chicken breast, bbq sauce and melted mozarella, served with a side of "railroad tie" fries.
big, thick, perfectly crisp but also meaty french fries.

can't wait to go back to pick up the skis and boots from the ski shop, and get some more pickles and cole slaw.

BuckyTom,

I've never been to The Iron Horse, but they do the pickles and cole slaw as opposed to bread at Arthurs Tavern in Morris Plains and Hoboken, NJ.
It's one of the main reasons I go there...and their french onion soup is to die for!!!
