Vera, I want to eat at your place! All that sounds FAB! Unfortunately, I would be yet another crimp in your Friday night "routine". Have fun and I'm glad things are getting back to normal for you.
Alix, if you ever find yourself visting NYC area, I would have to insist on changing my routine just to cook for you. I would insist.... and Bucky, you're just down the road, you and I should get together even sooner.

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Well, I was right about being full when we left my brother's place. We were fed like royalty. He began the meal (lunch) with a creamy jelled shrimp spread with crackers. The main meal consisted of a beef casserole with big slices of potatoes and creamed corn. A side of buttered baby peas, relish tray of baby carrots, celery sticks, ripe olives and homemade (his) sweet pickles. All rounded out with hot rolls and butter. When Buck and I felt as though we were ready to explode, Brian announced that the dessert tray would be ready soon. The dessert tray had homemade (Brian again) peanut brittle, banana cake with burnt caramel icing and homemade Christmas cookies. We washed the dessert(s) down with boiled custard, which is similar to egg nog.

My brother is a fabulous cook and loves to entertain. He's also talented in many other areas. He sews, plays guitar and piano, gardens, great at artistic things, can fix just about anything around the house. The list goes on and on. I'm very proud of him because he's self-taught in all areas. He's never married and, by now, pretty set in his ways. Too bad, though, he'd have been a great catch for anyone.

We didn't get home until a little after 5 p.m. and were still full from the luncheon feast. Happy day, Brian sent us home with a bowl of the shrimp spread. Yum, double yum! Buck darn near dived into the serving plate at lunch. It was really delicious.

Okay, corazon, I'll post the grasshopper pie recipe in the appropriate place. The recipe is delicous and has been in my family since I was a wee girl. It's really easy to make and serves quite a few because it is so rich. It's also a refreshing shade of green. Just perfect for Christmas...or St. Patty's Day.
