The small freezer allows me to go in with 5 friends every year on a grass fed beef. We trade around until we are all happy with the portions we have. It's a yearly party with us cooking up and eating the t-bones that night.
Where do you find an iceman these days?

The only time I've ever seen chicken feet was when I was working as a cashier in a Chinese restaurant in high school. They would let me have anything I wanted from the menu for lunch (except shrimp and lobster), but sometimes they would say, "You don't want what we're having." I remember going back to the kitchen to get lunch after they said that and looking at what they were eating. There was some kind of grayish, oily liquid with chicken feet in it as part of their meal. I didn't have any.

I guess maybe stock or soup, but I've never used them myself. Oh, yeah, I've seen them in the Asian grocery store in Virginia Beach. Never bought them, though.

Now that's a thought!

Tell me more, AB, please.

I live alone too, and can't imagine why I'd cook a whole turkey.
Not much to tell, it's just me.

Every year I say I'm not going to bother cooking a turkey for Thanksgiving and every year I find one for a very low price so I drag it up the stairs and toss it into the freezer. I cook a small feast for Thanksgiving, package the leftovers and make some soup stock. It all goes back into the freezer and I have a meal once a week that uses turkey in some way.

It's real!

They used to be quite rare now I see them in the Wegman's grocery produce area.

I have never cooked or eaten one, I think they are beautiful and mesmerizing!

It looks of those weird foods that those Klingons eat of Star Trek, or of something floating in the punch bowl of the Addams Family.

I must look of this!

With love,

It looks like a clown fish should be swimming around it

I think I saw these last time I was at Wegmans. I had to do a double take.
