Nice looking stroganoff, Harry. Deelish!

I'm looking forward to finishing off my soup (oyster stew) today, too, Cheryl. With a nice piece of french bread like you have. Tis soup season in the northeast.
That sounds like a great combination with the parm cheese.

Sorry, Harry, if you start cooking giraffe necks, you're going to be in a world of trouble from some of the members here - especially our own Purple Alien Giraffe!!!

Watch out Harry! We love you, but maybe not THAT much.

Whew, you had me worried there for a moment, pal. It just wouldn't do to upset PAG and her member family people.

I hope you're not looking for that big pan. Understand that giraffes have become an endangered species lately. I'd much rather have one as a pet! They're just so unique and beautiful in their way. Don't you think?

"giraffe necks...." lol, you guys crack me up.

Mmm...pacanis....oyster stew. Haven't had that since I lived in WA state years ago. Just love it, and I really miss a good bowl of oyster stew....and oysters in general.

Thank you all for your comments on my cream of broccoli soup pic. Zhizara, I just use a Cheryl'ed up version from one I found a few years ago on allrecipes. It makes for a good starting base and is the best I've found. I'll post it separately. Happy cooking!

Beef stroganoff is actually czarist rather than soviet but I'll let you off since you did make the dish properly. There are so many recipes appearing in magazines and books which purport to be beef stroganoff but are made with stewing beef and cooked for hours. Not correct!
