I hope others get inspired and post their recipes too. All are much appreciated.

It would be fun to have cook out together. There would be some great dishes to share.

If anyone would like me to bring a calf's head to a picnic, will need some time. We don't eat veal, is the thing? It may taste an awful lot like buttercream frosting.
