As Gary explained in his thread we were talking about my lack of natural casings and he was so kind to respond to my need, we agreed on an exchange and here is a group shot of the great items he sent.
Here are the "priceless" casings, I have accumulated so many sausage recipes it's hard to decide what to make first.
This was a pleasant surprise, I have read about members using Paul's rub and the great taste and wished I could try it, Gary provided that opportunity for me.
When Gary said he would send me some of his own roasted coffee I turned somersaults, most of the coffee here is instant and the whole bean coffee we have is extremely strong like espresso, Gary's smells very good, I can't wait to try it.
Thank you so much Gary for talking such good care of me, I'm truly blessed and will enjoy these items immensely, next weekend will be be a sausage extravaganza with some great coffee besides,
but...., I'm not the only one you have blessed!!!
This is my Belle, she immediately claimed the newspaper packing that was in the box.
It was like catnip to her, she gathered it all together under "her" table.
Finally she was tired, this is just before she went to sleep among her treasure.
She woke up later and I heard her "rustling" in her paper, but she had become camera shy so this was taken on the sly.
Gary, thank you very much for the pleasure your kindness and generosity has given me.
