So, then, I guess it would be wrong to stroll casually past the door and holler... LAMB FRIES! and run.

If you look at the list of ingredients on all those 'supposedly cheese products," you will see they are mostly oil and chemicals. No thanks I will pass. REAL cheese for me.

"Reserved" if there is not enough of it to release to the public, it is saved for their special customers. Or it is sold in smaller pieces like the snack pack. Sometimes there is so little of it, only the employees can buy it. It is never released to the public. I never ate so well as when my youngest son lived adn worked in Vermont. Reserved cheese, maple syrup right after it had been bottled. fresh eggs the day they were laid. Now he only works up there one weekend per dien per month and doesn't have the time to collect all the good stuff for me.

How true. But that taught me to think that all folks may be just like her. So I make it a point to try to give exact directions right down to the nth. Excluding yourself.

Then it wouldn't really help to call mountain oysters by their other name... swinging beef.

What would my 4-H kids think if they were a part of this conversation?

Well it has taken me all this time to get to the last post. I am going back to bed.

In the time period of Yankee Doodle, macaroni was the title given to a "dandy" like Yankee Doodle Dandy. Feathers were often worn as a symbol of the prestigous elite.

Maybe if you stuck a feather in your shrimp scampi, you could call it macaroni.
