    As an empty nester it gets a bit lonely around home. I wanted to purchase something for my twin sons that successfully completed college with degrees in finance. I do know that they like to eat. I can think of nothing better than a gift pack of Omaha Steaks. I receeived a gift box when I was down and out and wanted to pass it along. The side dishes are amazing. I cannot wait till they open their presents from Santa. Soon I will restock my lonely freezer. Fabulous!!!
