For the love of R A M P S!!

OH People - Suzanne from chickens in the road sent me RAMPS!! from the beautiful state of West Virginia!!! THANK YOU SUE!
Guess what a trip through the woods found for me this morning?? RAMPS RAMPS RAMPS RAMPS RAMPS RAMPS!!! I jumped with joy and giggled with childish glee!! SEE - I have an addiction and well, to be honest, it started with Sue sending those tasty little pieces of heaven. The aroma of them simmering in my kitchen is almost to much - I had NO NO NO idea that they grew here in the cold north tundra country! NO IDEA - and I consider myself to be at least of average knowlegde of the local fauna and fare.... Guess I was thinking to much of myself!!! SO - thank you to Sue again and thank you JESUS for the ramps that are growing in the woods behind the barn!!!! LOVE THEM!!!

Ok, Who's doing what for supper this evening? I am So out of ideas and ramp crazed that I don tknow what to make???? Does anyone else ever get into that kind of slump?

Here is a ramp post!!! http://suzannemcminn.com/blog/2009/04/13/a-garden-of-ramps/

You love the smell of ramps? I love to eat them but man do they stink up the house. And have you noticed after eating the smell even comes out in your body sweat? LOL Enjoy them and they are really good in scrambled eggs

I'm not crazy about those wild onion/leek thingees, but I sure could eat some fresh asparagus for supper tonight! Still too cold up here for local asparagus yet, darnit!

Idea for supper:

1 pound beef tips
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup ginger ale

Grease your crockpot and place beef tips in bottom. Sprinkle soup mix next and then pour on mushroom soup. Pour ginger ale on top of all, no need to stir immediately. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours. It makes tender beef out of the cheapest cuts, with wonderful gravy. Double or triple to meet your needs. Serve with rice or noodles....AND your ramps!
