I'm I to understand that you like turnips about as much as asparagus?

Or that you can't find any good veggie recipes? (Is this "good recipes" or "good veggies? Hummmm???)

Or are you just a bad cook?!?!?

Interesting recipe. In fact, at a recent Gaming Weekend we had a Gamer that planned on cooking up that very meal. However, somehow in the process, he locked his head in the oven.

The rest of us noticed this mistake almost immediately, but didn't say anything to him, for fear it might embarrass him. Finally after an hour or two, I turned the oven off and let him free. Let me tell you, that stunk up the whole house pretty good too!
