We know the oncology ward faces out the west side, and that is where the majority of the lights and decor go. Occasionally we get a little silly (snowball fights, snow angels etc) just to make the kids laugh. Hope everyone else has a good day!
That is awesome, Toffi. The families are blessed to have you and your group do this for them. Yes, if they can forget what they are going through for even a few minutes and have some fun, then it's all worth it. Thank you for this.

I am doing a happy dance and my tummy is singing happy tunes. My daughter just sent me a small order of fried deep sea scallops and one of fried clams. I wolfed down the scallops. My favorite sea food of all times. I am halfway through the clams. But I need to take a break. I am full! I was afraid of the scallops at first. I am allergic to the iodine in sea food. Had I tasted even a minute bit in anyone of the scallops, I would have spit it out and not touched any of the rest. But the food gods were with me. Not one drop of iodine in any of them.

I am trying to work out where to ask a question about Worcestershire Sauce?

I don't use it much for anything but I only have to watch DDD before I realise it is ubiquitous in American "Diner" cooking.

Or is it??

Do you use Worcestershire Sauce?

I use it on steaks, in casseroles, gravy, tomato juice etc.

I only use Lea & Perrins!

"Dear old Worcester sauce!" as Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Mary Paterson, the Fat Ladies, used to say.

I miss them!

The Fat Ladies crossed the pond?? I had no idea!

(They were good fun -but very different people). Both lovely though. I have one of their books actually - it has a very unfortunately named recipe in it!! (Probably not even allowed to say it here!) I won't ever be cooking it in any case!

The Two Fat Ladies Full Throttle, I have that book and a set of videos.

I have never asked the butcher for the parts needed to make that particular stew!

Oh do tell. If the word isn't allowed on the forum, the posting engine will substitute asterisks.
