How about the 2 lb. white truffle that was bought for $54,000 by a "consortium" that included Gwyneth Paltrow but went bad while sitting in the fridge! Again, I do not understand what makes a truffle special. If every nibble you took tasted like a different gourmet meal, it still wouldn't be worth that much to me! :?

and just think, pigs (and sometimes dogs) dig them up with their noses from under the earth.

Perhaps that is why their noses are so sensitive to smell the truffles under the wet earth. Rather makes you wonder about who figured these things should be so expensive, eh DC.

So we have champagne, pricey vodka, beluga caviar, shrimp coctail, the most expensive meat we could find, oven roast potato's, carmelised onions....

Lets go back to those really stiff and "snappy" green beans...wash, take the tips off, French slice them, and place in the steamer basket with some almond slices...and steam over water (briefly) that has had some almond oils added to it....and get them out of there while they still are a bit "crispy"...

I am all for that Lifter, just don't bring that awful green bean casserole. I love green beans just the way you suggested.
