The best recipe

. . ... ... .. ... ... .. .. ... ... ... .. .. ... ..... . .. . ...
I know I said, I wasn't planning to be back here again until I was back home, from our Canadian vacation, but I wanted to quickly share something with you, that I've found.

The best recipe..!!

If you ever find you need to literally serve a ton of food (for a crowd) - then, here is the recipe for you!  It's the best joy-bringer to any table... and... oh....well...I suppose, even this could be debatable...!  :)
Don't knock it till you try it!  Hee hee...

Elephant Stew
1 medium sized elephant
1 ton salt
1 ton pepper
500 bushels potatoes
200 bushels carrots
4,000 springs of parsley
2 small rabbits (optional)

Cut elephant meat into bite sized pieces.  This will take about two months.  Cut vegetable into cubes, another two months.  Place meat in a pan and cover with 1,000 gallons of brown gravy.  Simmer for four weeks.  Shovel in S & P to taste.  When meat is tender, add vegetables.  A steam shovel is useful for this.  Simmer slowly for four more weeks.  Garnish with parsley.
This will serve 3,800 people.  If more (folks) are expected. add the two rabbits --- this is not recommended, however, as very few people like to find hare in their stew!!

 April Fool's!

For real... until next time!
and it's back to work time for me... in vacation prep. & packing, etc.
Have a Blessed Easter week!!
