Hi Nancy,

RH> He might be, have to ask him.

Nobody wants to cook this time of year?

Too bad we can't get an overnight delivery package but it would be
horrendously expensive.

RH> Very true--come across some gems and others that have been less than

True. Saw a sign we'd not seen before along I-95 in SC on Thursday for a
bbq place at the next exit. Decided to try it, found out it was a buffet
place, featuring ribs on Thursday night. It's another place we'll go
back to, if we can. Found out about something new--Perlow rice.
Basically rice cooked in meat juices (depends on the meat, in this case,
pork bbq), as the base for a meat gravy. It was good--I'm going to do a
bit more research on it, on the internet. The rest of the meal was good
too. (G)

NB> RH>>> here for a few years" (tho sometimes that's ended up being
NB> RH>>> longer than originally planned) so we range wider in our
NB> RH>>> choices of where to eat.
NB> NB>>> Dunno... I suspect we range fairly widely... just not when it
NB> NB>>> comes to Japanese... ;)
NB> RH>> Yes, you found that German deli/restaurant. That is another
NB> RH>> place we would enjoy going back to.
NB> NB>> Yup... As I said, we have a wide range of cuisines on our A
NB> NB>> list... ;)

RH> As do most all of us on this echo.

NB> Yup. Smile

And some of us even try to cook what we've read about on the echo. (G)

Catch you later,
