I did all the prep at 6 am, had my first coffee and was out the door by 8. Now I'm ready for a nap
I really wish that I had your energy! 6 a.m every morning is just a blur to me. I normally feel like a walking zombie and do good to get myself in and out of the shower and your up preparing a meal already.

+1 I am SO not an early morning person, only when I have to be. Your dinner and dessert sounds so good, Toffi!

[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![/QUOTE

Ah Cheryl! WA is known for oysters and mussels ...did you live near some of our PNW oyster beds?

Stop it, SomeBunny! I'm drooling all over my laptop. Too much time since I've been able to satisfy my need for oysters. Slurp.

Excuse me, I need to clean my keyboard, again!

WRONG.i do happen know that the dish has it's roots in imperialist russia.some say a dish created for count pavel stroganov.the word "soviet" simply means "council" & predates the soviet union.in imperial russia even the early tsar's had their "soviet of ministers" or "council of ministers".i simply used the word "soviet" to convey it's russian roots.i know i cooked it in the traditional way.my uncle morrey was russian & taught me how to cook it 50 years ago
Soviet (council) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hi Somebunny. I lived in east Bremerton, right on the Sound. It's been quite a few years ago, but I do seem to recall oyster beds nearby. Friends and family went 'oystering' frequently. We sure did a lot of shucking.
I think one of my favorite ways to eat oysters was lightly grilled on the half shell with a little bit of jalapeno butter. OMG....yummm. Sure do miss Washington state, beautiful place.
