    How does a shrimp go about being fancy, as opposed to the plain old blue collar shrimp?
    It has to do with where they went to college and with their pedigree. Or maybe it's where they got their collogen and pedicure. I forget, but you could probably Google it

    Isn't it sad that they all end up in the same pot with the ne'er do wells? Just sad, I tell you.

    mrd, it's getting harder and harder to wait until dark for the pj's. I think I'm building up to the "around the clock" pj's.

    Aw, my secret is out, as I do "around the clock pj's" quite a bit.


    They go from regular to fancy so the price goes up. Kind of like a regular street corner hooker and the top dollar "escorts". Same thing, just more expensive!



    OK guys, got the soup going, where are my stirrers and painters?????

    What is wedding soup? I love soup so I'm curious. MRD, tell me what it is here and then go post the recipe on the recipes thread, ok?

    I just woke up (and no, your eyes aren't deceiving you -- it's 10:25 a.m.). I have a raging headache 'cause I slept too much. The husband had a nice breakfast ready for me and now I'm going to take a nice shower.

    Yes, LL and I refuse to even enter the kitchen until we know if we've going to like the soup. LL, is there any kind of soup that you DON'T like? Not me. You stir and I'll sample. Seem fair enough?

    Let me tell you all something funny that just happened. I was mixing some scones and had them patted out on flour on the counter top. They're some kind of healthy crap that I bought at Wild Mushroom, so the flour looked about like gingerbread. Anyway, in HE walks and just bellowed out WHAT IS THAT? I kid you not if I'd been trussing up a rat for baking I don't think I would have gotten a more negative reaction. Well I baked them and asked him if he'd like to try one. Now, three scones later, I think he's full. Whatever it WAS, seems to have passed muster very well.

    Speaking of a trussed up rat...read an article about guinea pigs being raised for food...I kid you not. This is a South American (Peru, I think) thing, and they are also being shipped into this country with the increase of immigrants. The money earned from raising the guinea pigs is extremely helpful to households in South America. I think Chicago gets the biggest shipments.

    We see pets; other people see food. OK.....

    It did not make for a pretty platter.

    I swear I did not order these! This is not one of my cravings...

    Muduh, my husband walked in and read over my shoulder and said, "trussed up rats"? He thought I was looking for a recipe for one!!! Come on--my cooking is NOT that bad!

    Wedding Soup is traditionally served at Italian weddings. It has chicken, meatballs, pasta, greens and a unique cheese mixture. I make mine less brothy and serve with a good crusty bread for a stick-to-your-ribs meal.
    I posted my recipe over on that thread.
