just finished up a pot luck luncheon here at the office (about 35 people). . .including my boss and our big boss (CFO/VP). piece of the lunch was my 12 pound dr. chicken's double smoked ham. . .about all that's left an hour later is the bone and some scraps. . usual, everyone loves 'egg' food. . .comments like: "max, that's the best ham i ever tasted". . . .[p]trouble becomes, while everyone spends 2 bucks on sodas or plates, or brownies, etc. . .they expect me to bring the 'meat'. . .oh well. . if it keeps the bosses happy, then i'm happy. . ..

    mad max beyond eggdome,
    Those ham bones do wonders in Split Pea soup, along with onion & some spices...[p]HML

    She would (well, maybe), but I don't give her ham bones. I think they can splinter. I give her beef marrow bones. She'll spend hours gnawing on them, and she actually forgets about her toys when she has one!
  • Max, don't feel like the "long stranger" buddy , I always end up like that...I think I gotta upper hand on them ol brothers o mine this mothers day though...I been hintin (aksually I been hintin a real long time - that has been my strategy) about doin a prime rib roast to em, and I think it worked...them two tight wads have actually talked together about providen the roast ...some of you less wise eggheads need to learn a lesson here...

  • Chet,
    good advice. . time my co-workers want eggfood, i'll hit them up for the money to pay for it. ..

    mad max beyond eggdome, I'm guessing you'd NOT like the bone in Chili con carne either...[p]HML
  • When I voiced the objection about always cooking ribs/pork/brisket for the pot luck and they said "bring in the receipt" and they started paying for the meat! It IS frustrating, though, because everyone else shows up with a $1 package of buns and they also seem to call them at the last minute, "potluck tomorrow for Sally's B-Day!"
  • HighMedLow,
    now, chili is another story. . i love chili. ..but i'd never thought to stick a ham bone in it. . .
