[QUOTE="Cheryl J;1316791"]"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!
Ah Cheryl! WA is known for oysters and mussels ...did you live near some of our PNW oyster beds?
