Escargot Classic Style

"Just the way I like my escargot. Simple and yet elegant and great. Hint; I buy the snails from IGourmet. They sell a can that contains 72, enough for 12 servings @ a really good price and they are as good or better than the higher priced ones. Truly restaurant quality."

I must have inherited my love of cooking from my grandmothers. I love spending time at the bar with my buddies, camping with my son, watching him ride his "toys" and I love to ride my own "toy" Harley Davidson. I am a die hard UT Longhorn fanatic. Love watching all sports, Cowboys will always rule the NFL. Gordon is the man in NASCAR. Yankees suck. As do the Red Wings, and Celtics. How many of you have I made mad? At least I am a fan and care. Go Longhorns, Cowboys, Mavs, Stars, Rangers (yeah right the Rangers are fun to laugh at anyway).
