I love pork loin! How do you fix it?

Turnips and parsnips are two vegetables you will never see in my grocery cart!

Turnips do stink & it always makes me happy when someone agrees with me on this.

Happy Thursday!

I believe a fictional character named "Baldrick" from the Blackadder series and my mother are the only two "Turnip Fans" I know of... and like you, I bat left, throw right, use a left stick in hockey, and golf left... although I shoot right... which is thankful as I use blackpowder weapons... and it is painful to watch lefties press the pan and frizzen to their cheek! OUCH!

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

OK, when are you smoking the next one?

Sandee said...

Slap your momma. I say that all the time. We must be make from the same stock. I'm honored. Now pass the smoked pork loin.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

You've never had a nickname? Seriously? I must have had a dozen so far. Oh, wait. Those were aliases.

you have gotta get a nickname! I know my friends by what they call me- I have an unusual name - so I get called a lot of things- and rarely offended
