Cooking for the weekend this morning.  Saturday is my longest work day at Millers'.  I get off between 9 and 10 PM on Friday night, then turn around and work Saturday from open to close....when ever that is. :)  Usually I slip away around 3 PM on Saturday afternoon to grab a bite of real food.  I only take an hour, so I like to have something ready that I can just throw into the toaster oven.

Three pounds of turkey necks covered with cajun seasoning.

Purple Dead Nettle, Dandelion, red onion, yukon potatoes, celery and garlic.

Covered the meat with all the goodies and about 1/2 cup of filtered water and put it in the oven until the meat fell off the bones.

I'm still organizing and moving stuff.  I went under the stairs this morning and got out all my herbs and powders.  Got the shelf unit out of the shed and up in my bedroom so that I could use it for my goodies.  Sure is nice to have everything in one place and easy to find when I need it.

Bush beans and cucumbers are coming up nicely.  I wish I knew if the frost was over with.   I can't wait to plant everything outside. :)

Here is the finished turkey neckbone stew....or what ever you want to call it.  It doesn't look all that great, but it sure does taste awesomely. :)


  1. what an awesome healthy and delicious meal! i'd love to stop by and have a bowl with you - bahahah!

    your friend,

  2. Kymber...come one over! I'm thinking of adding a couple of handfuls of sauerkraut to the mix when I come home for lunch.

  3. I love to cook when I have all the ingredients stocked and plenty and available at a thought's notice. That stew looks awesome! And so do the seedlings. Happy gardening.

  4. Hi cousin,
    just checked out where you could buy turkey necks around here ... The only one's I found were dried: In a pet shop for dogs to chew on. Different countries - different lives ...
    A cheeky grin from good ole Germany

  5. I have to redeem... saw the necks at a local market yesterday. They were huge! I thought them to be much smaller. Good stew meat, my husband said.


I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
