For those of you with fast metabolisms....the HECK with you. But if you'd rather have recipes that are more traditional, then, all you need do is to visit Boggie's Cooking Tips page, then a quick visit to my mother-in-law Betty Jean's pages for some Traditional Recipes, or, Vegetarian Recipes.
AND, if you want to see how to grow all your own vegetables for the recipes and flowers for the table, visit Uncle Ernie's Gardening page. If you see Ernest, please tell him Boggie said supper will be ready soon and to get on out of the garden so he can get cleaned up.
