  1. Prepping Ahead - Yea or Nay?

    I can usually have my veggies chopped by the time the pan heats up. So, pretty much just stock.
  2. Unusual & unknown kitchen gadgets

    Is the board used for spaetzle?
  3. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    I've waited in their line, seems to move pretty quickly. I think there are other places to that do individual items better than Joe's, LC's for burnt ends, Brobeck's out in Leawood for ribs, SLAPs has excellent brisket, but for consistency across all items, Joe's KC probably is the best. I don't think I'll ever get used to calling it Joe's Kansas City.
  4. Seafood stock help

    Nothing wrong with a dark roux. Glad it came out well.
  5. Seafood stock help

    Did you peel the shrimp? Simmer the peels for a half hour or so.
  6. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    Hardwood roasted pork loin with chimichuri. Served with German potato salad and barbecued beans.
  7. Hot Dog review in Food , NYTimes

    I've been known to grill a hot dog or two. Not sure about the right mind thing though, so you may be correct.
  8. Hospital Time

    Much nicer than the hospital room I was in recently. Food looks a helluva lot better too. Hope you're well soon.
  9. Chicken pot pie. The good news is that it used up a bunch of leftovers. Tasted better than it looked.
  10. Heading to SF - where to hit?

    Thank you for sharing, great pictures and making cupcakes with the kids had to be great fun. Biscuits and gravy are in my top 5 favorites, the ones in your picture look pretty good to me. They're best eaten late at night after a few, or the next morning as a cure.
  11. Cooking Bacon in Sesame Oil.......

    The toasted, dark sesame oil? No, I never cook with it. I'll add it to food after it's cooked. I imagine that cooking with it would turn food bitter and unappetizing.
  12. Tabasco Sauce Alternatives

    I've done that. At one Mexican restaurant the waiter took notice and asked if he could try some. He liked it and then wanted to pass it around the kitchen. Everyone gave it a big thumbs up. I do like tobasco though.
  13. Meatloaf sandwiches

    I'll grill a slice of meatloaf along with some buttered white bread. Salt and pepper, and ... I may lose my eG membership for this but.... a slice of American cheese.
  14. Dinner 2017 (Part 5)

    Yikes! I hope you're OK. Oil burns are no fun.
  15. Wish I was there. Thank you for sharing.
