 A sculpture purchased– at a  Sotheby’s of London auction–  by an anonymous collector for  $104.3  MILLION  DOLLARS. 

 SHOUT OUT TO THE ANONYMOUS COLLECTOR  from Renee Ashley Baker:  “I’d love to have lunch with you and get  a ‘private showing’  of  the “WALKING MAN”.     You see–I,  Renee Ashley Baker,  think I know this “Walking Man” .. . . 

(Renee Ashley Baker’s aside:   “What a name dropper that Renee Ashley Baker  is” ! ! ! )

AND….WHAT  GOES  WITH  THE  WALKING  MAN ?

THE  KING  OF  BEERS    (A Belgian Company)

 

 

My Father–Mr. Ashley –drank  Manischewitz  Wine  AND— he also drank   BUDWEISER  BEER. . . .

(Renee Ashley Baker’s aside: “My father’s family–Ashley–and my father’s mother’s family– Harris– can be traced back to England and Wales….)

 2 pairs sweetbreads

Water

6 tablespoons butter

12 fresh mushrooms, sliced

1 green pepper, seeded and chopped

1 canned pimento, chopped

1/2 cup sherry

1 cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons flour

1 cup milk

1 teaspoon salt

4 patty shells, purchased

2.  Melt half the butter in a saucepan, add the mushrooms, green pepper and pimento and cook about ten minutes.  Add half the sherry and cream. 

3.  Simmer until the sauce is reduced by about half.  Add the diced sweetbreads.

  4.  In a saucepan melt the remaining butter,  add the flour and stir with a wire whisk until blended.   Meanwhile, bring the milk to a boil and add all at once to the butter-flour mixture, stirring vigorously with the whisk.  Add to the sweet-bread mixture and season with salt. 

 5.  Add the remaining cream and sherry just before pouring the mixture into the heated patty shells. 

Yield:  4 Servings
