    Arby's - The Topic

    No mention of duck at the Ottumwa, Iowa Arby's the sign out front featured deep fried turkey and apple crisp. Drove on by to our favorite mama y papa taco place and pigged out on al pastor tacos. Don't need no quackin' duck

  3. I'm just jealous 'cause I don't have any of those cookies!

    Old cookbooks

    Used to do a lot of selling on eBay and today I was cleaning out a box of unsold/unlisted odds and ends. Forgot all about having this old cookbook-Kitchen Fun A Cook Book for Children by Louis Price Bell. Copyright 1932. For something printed on what I would call pulp paper, it is in remarkable condition. Is this something any of you would be interested in having as a gift? If so. let me know via pm

    Breakfast! 2018

    I'll bet you house guest would be honored to share that with you too! So glad he's coming back again. Can't wait for pictures of the happy reunion.
  8. Hum. have had several over the years jug fish for snappers here in the pond. They used really "ripe" chicken livers for bait. I've yet to cook or eat turtle meat so I'll be interested in seeing how you deal with yours. And I agree, Chum deserves a spot on a calendar ,,,,beautiful photo!
  9. Easy to trap however. Just set out an empty can and they crawl right in.
  10. Yeah, killing, cleaning and cooking the wild Spam. As usual, this is going to be fun to follow along!
  11. Is there a chance you could ask the kitchen staff what cut they use? Tell them how wonderful it is and they may well be willing to share with you.

    China Shopping

    Well. that's clearly what you get by crossing a baby cuke with a Lincolnshire sausage. Now if I could only figure out how to sex the things! It is either a cukesage or a saucumber
  13. Our local Mexican restaurant routinely includes a bottle of ranch along with the traditional hot sauces on every table. Very sad to watch patrons drown their tacos in the white stuff. I agree, it has a place but just not on my Mexican platter.

    Kenny Shopsin Passed Away

    I just had to check and we watched the documentary in 2011. Since then, the phrase, "I like killing flies" has become our mantra at this time of years when the flies are looking for nooks and crannies in the house to spend the winter in.
