I was expecting something more exotic, like pigeon

Seriously I don't think I've ever seen old chickens for sale around here. Not advertised as such anyway.

Now that you mention it, I noticed that when Lums was still around down here, they offered a roast chicken dish called Wienerwald chicken. I never tried it, but always thought they looked small. I was guessing cornish hens. I noticed though, that after Lums closed down, the pigeon population grew in leaps and bounds! I wonder?

Pot roasted sirloin with taters and carrots, gravy. DD made brownies but the are so underdone they ooze! She insists they are supposed to be that way. Can't tell a 14 year old anything.

You mean we have to start wild snipe hunts? If that is the case, I'll have to send someone for a sky hook and bacon strecther. I never did hear back from the scout I sent after a left-handed screw driver.

Mexican night here. Pork enchiladas with gravy (sauce) tamales and refritos. Maybe even flan for dessert. This was already planned when unexpected family arrived to stay last night and wanted to "go out" for Mexican for lunch today before they left. Didn't have the heart to tell them what we were having for dinner. Oh well, lucky for us we really like Mexican food! Ole'!
