The steaks are very good but also very expensive. If you are willing, it's a gift that's usually really appreciated.

Typing out a stack of handwritten recipes i found while cleaning out my cookbook shelves. Decided they need to be in the computer instead of on odd pieces of paper. Those I think might be interesting to you folks, I'm posting in their respective forums.

Yes, Omaha Steaks make a great present. I was given one and enjoyed it. I ordered one later and didn't enjoy it as much. Good food, small portions. And getting them to stop calling every week was an exercise in creativity. Fantastic as a present though. Order it through an email account you can disregard.

We got Omaha steaks from MIL one year, they were good. It sounds like you got a great deal!

Vit, in future you may want to check out Greenberg Smoked Turkeys. Www.gobblegobble.com. I've given them as gifts for years, and got us a small one this year. I have fixings from the carcass for 5 more meals in the freezer. They come fully cooked, and are just delish. Featured on Oprah's favorite things one year.

I think smoked poultry in general is amazing. I've smoked whole chickens and a turkey breast and they both were among the best I've ever eaten.
