Haha ! There's something weird going in with my post, somehow a part of a text between my daughter and I got inserted in my post that's odd! Spooky!! " Really cute! Are the pants mainly too?" Oh and I also didn't type the word "spooky" above, I don't know where that came from yikes!

beef stroganoff served,as they do in parts of russia & iran,with matchstick fries.washed down with smirnoff black & tonic on the rocks...colder than a cossacks nose(in keeping with the dishes soviet origins) huzzah!!
Everything of which you make looks so very good! I do love to see of these. Maybe one day I shall be the half of a cook as you!

I made DA of grilled salmon, long grain and wild rice with a tomato salsa on the top of it, and steamed peas. I am still of fighting of my abcess of my tooth, so I had of cottage cheese and Campbell's chicken noodle soup and milk.

With love,

Cream of broccoli and potato soup tonight with shaved Parmesan on top, and toasted French bread on the side. It was wonderfully delicious and can't wait to have leftovers tomorrow.

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

i think turkey necks are the exceptions in the "world of necks".the one's i get are loaded with meat too.maybe it's something to do with the length of the neck & the amount of muscle needed to support the head? if so bring me that giraffe!!never seen pork necks but all of the butchers over here sell lamb neck or "scrag end" chops from the neck of the lamb.not much meat but bloody tasty.perfect in casseroles & tagines.
