  1. wow, that sounds heavenly ! (except maybe for the brussel sprouts)

  2. The thrilling thing about the internet is that I can enjoy a virtual dinner with you and reciprocate. Please join me: At the food bank yesterday (no, I am not welfar garbage, just what’s left of a hit & run), I was able to get macaroni and cheese, but no milk or butter, so we make it with water and still enjoy the fake cheddar flavor with pasta. Canned green beans, French cut (fancy) sans amandine. Most people in my town drink filtered water or bottled water, but we will have tap water with the pasta course, first, and green beans, second. Conversation is sparkling.
