    Thanks so much for providing this. I've never tried to make a RVC, now I have no excuse to not give it a go!

    Great recipe queenb, good luck on your surgery.

    This reminds me of my sister cooking her first turkey 40 yrs ago when she first got married. We still laugh about it to this day. She didn't know there were giblets in a bag inside the turkey, until her new hubby started carving the turkey at the dinner table.

    Good for him that he likes it. Most of my friends don't understand that I absolutely love it!

    Are you spoiling that boy and interfering with the regular college ritual/behavior??

    If you are, raise your hand and shout, "Guilty!"

    My son's turning 23 this month and I'm still buying him groceries when I go down to see him. Veggies are an issue with him, too, although I have to admit he eats pretty healthfully.
    Count your blessings!

    Yes I'm guilty of spoiling him. But he is doing so well! Honor roll, band geek and not a partier. Plus he is just a kind person. Exactly the kind of son I want!

    I know he will eat the veggies, but he is just to lazy or not enough time to cook. Probably a combo of both.

    My culinary daughter was home for spring break this week. She only cooked 3 nights including marinated portabello on a salad of arugula, and a pan-seared duck another night, but last night she cooked a feast and we invited my elderly neighbor down to join us:
    Freshly made pasta with chicken that had been cooked submerged in olive oil for 6 hours (crockpot) and julienned pears
    Teeny tiny (the size of your finger tip) potatoes roasted in rendered duck fat and rosemary
    Roasted asparagus wrapped in prosciutto
    Sliced whole-grain baguette spread with a paste of gorgonzola, butter, garlic, fresh parmesan
    Wine
    Dessert - a small mound of creme brulee covered in chocolate mousse on a crushed hazelnut base (Hannaford Inspirations).
    Count your blessings!

    wow Gutmutter, you are very lucky! Does your daughter do her own shopping? And what does duck taste like? I had it once when I was a kid but just remember I didn't like it.

    We shop together. The duck was excellent.

    My son was the same way the first few years of college. I spoiled him too. Aren't we suppose too? You want them to eat healthy.
    When he moved into an apartment, he started cooking. He has become a good cook.
