Thank you so much, Rip!
Many things I do forget, but as a confirmed USMC junkie since the age of
two years and four months when I caught my first site of a gorgeous
young Marine, resplendent in his dress blues outside Miller and Rhodes
in downtown Richmond, I should hope I'd never forget the Marine Corps

BONUS RECIPES (Sorry; not theme-related):
Country Tar Heel Pie
"Take a trip to the country side and try Country Tar Heel Pie. A wonderful
blend of all natural flavors, you won't be able to deny its awesome flavors.
With chocolate chips and chopped pecans, it will become a family favorite that
you'll want to make for every potluck and holiday season. Easy to make, it's a
pie recipe that is perfect when you need a dessert on the fly. Enjoy!"
Homemade Chicken Stock (Crockpot)
- "When it comes to making it yourself, chicken stock is one of those things
that you may be tempted to say "why bother?" It's pretty cheap to buy, and the
store-bought version is fine to use in most capacities. However, once you make
your own, you'll definitely see the difference. Homemade stock is rich and
flavorful. And what's even better - it's practically free to make. Here's my M.O.
Whenever I roast a chicken or buy a rotisserie chicken, I pick all the meat and
skin off, put the carcass in a big ziploc bag, and throw it in the freezer. I
also save any scraps of veggies and throw them in the freezer as well - bits of
carrot, that half of an onion that I didn't need, celery that's on it's last
leg... you get the picture. I usually wait to make the stock until I have two
chicken carcasses. Just to get more bang for my buck."
