This evenings fare:

Turkey - Dressing (no oysters in mine either Dave >:( :D)
Mashed potatoes with gravy ......................

Now time to roll home...literally.

Bill - looks like an absolute feast to me!  Presonally, I find oysters best raw on the half shell w/ little additions -  ;D  As a GI radiologist, if you need a recommendation for some antacids and/or PPI, send me a PM -  ;)  :D  Dave

That looks so awful on the page  :P. I sincerely wish you had a modicum of enjoyment gulping the stuff down.

I did enjoy everything down to the canned, microwaved veggies.  I've gotten used to eating healthy, boring foods.  I had a blueberry scone.  That's not awful; it's delightful.

Asparagus (I know, I know, out of season, but still delicious. ;))


White or green?

Green.  Would love to try some of that white, but have never seen it offered here.

I've seen it many times in Germany/Belgium/Holland - normally around late Spring (May-June). A typical fare, overrated IMO.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spargel. I've had it boiled, in sauce, in soup, you name it.

I much prefer the tastier geen ones, even if they're canned (the taste is smokier).

White and green asparagus:



If you like heart of palm, you'll like the white asparagus. You can serve it in the same way: light dressing and croutons.

Note that the French Crème d'asperges always uses the geen variety. Google and have fun! Tip: adding a little Curry is green asparagus Crème  best kept secret!

Well, no turkey for us yesterday, i.e. Thanksgiving - wife went to a church 'commune' dinner which I did not want to attend, so steamed up some Alaskan King Crab w/ a salad & some Chilean wine (Chardonnay from the Casablanca Vly) for myself - I was not unhappy!  ;D

The next day, we had a wonderful pheasant (baked w/ an apple recipe) along w/ some veggies - the meat was just wonderful - succulent & tasty - even the breast meat was nice and moist (a problem that I've observed w/ previous preparations of pheasant) - wine for the evening was a '04 Pinot Noir from Morgon (California Santa Lucia Highlands - aged over a year in my basement cellar - delicious!).   :)

Free-range Royal Berkshire back bacon, two free-range eggs, a chunk of ciabatta, a dollop of onion marmalade and a glass of mandarin juice.

Yum!

LOL -  ;D  Don't think it was that particular bird, but certainly one looking similar - fortunately, my wife just picked it up frozen & packaged - don't believe I could have 'shot it' in the wild! (I'm not a hunter, so not a concern) - actually, my 'saddest' food relationship is veal - just love it!  But, always see those cute little calves -  :'(  Dave

Buttered crumpets with some of my Aunt's Quince jam from this years harvest. Delicious!
