Pork necks? I haven't seen those. Sounds like I'm missing something good. I do see smoked pork necks, but once they are smoked, there's no meat left. Good for flavoring beans, but no meat.

I see fresh pork neck bones. They're used in tomato sauce to flavor it.

The turkey necks I find are loaded with meat. The pork neck bones here are dessicated with no salveagable meat, but a nice smoked flavor.

I'd love to find pork neck bones with meat on them. Hmmm, yumm.

Yes, pork neck bones don't have much meat. You'd think they would, but they don't. I buy them several at a time because the meat is so good and it's worth it to me to pick the meat off and use it in bean soups. I usually ask the butcher at the market to save some for me.

Wow, Cheryl, you have a butcher that you can actually talk to? I'm jealous!

I probably could talk to a butcher at Rouses, but I rarely get there. I'll have to try them again soon.

Rouses isn't that far and they do have the most wonderful meats and seafood. i've had a huge hankering for some oyster stew. I know it isn't the season, but I've waited all summer for them to come up with it on their weekly ads with no luck

Now that I've had that excellent bonus from overpaying my rent. I guess I deserve a free visit to Rouses.

Thanks, Cheryl - See... you've inspired me.

We made the trek to Costco today too! Only a 1/2 hour for us, we also hit a couple of grocery stores (Mother Hubbard's cupboard was pretty bare). Not a lot of nibblies at our Costco, so we needed to make dinner when we got home. We had pork chops mashed potatoes and gravy and salad. I had 1/2 a butternut squash in the fridge DH won't touch it with a 10 foot pole, but is all too eager to remind me that I "need to do something with that, before it goes bad". I decided it would go really well with pork so I peeled and cubed it and sautéed it in butter with chopped onion, a pinch of sage and a pinch of parsley, salt and Really cute! Are the pants mainly too?pepper. It was divine! It was superb with the pork chop. A great change from my usual baked with butter and this was faster and better IMO ;). I think we may have ice cream for dessert. Or maybe I will just have more squash! Click image for larger version

Mmmmm, SomeBunny. I love squash too. Yummmmm.

What else did you get, and what are your plans to cook?

Small town....haha. There are only 2 supermarkets within a 100 mile radius of here. That might help.

Might help you!?!?!

I think that since I'm so rich this month I'll just have to make a trip to Rouses.

I can talk to the butchers there. To be continued, Cheryl.
