    Great Ways to Cook Corn on the Cob

    We've been cooking it in our Instant Pot this year with great success. 2 minutes HP steam then quick release and it comes out excellent!

    Use the crust when making breadcrumbs?

    I guess we normally don't think about the color variations because the normal bread we use is whole-wheat or some variation thereof. In that case the crust isn't really that much of a different color than the bread itself. Irregardless, we always use the crust including the ends (they had a little different texture and more crunch).

    SOLIDTeknics wrought iron pans

    We have a couple of "Lightweight Cast-Iron" pans we use all the time. We've had several of them for quite a while and they are holding up very well. Not sure how they are much different than these other than they were a good bit less expensive.

    I certainly agree, my point is that is just the cost of doing business so included in the price of the meal. Don't fool people with a lower price on the menu and then tack on surcharges to cover either items. If it costs you $X to cover food, salaries and benefits so be it, but that price on the menu.

    Looks like you had a great meal! I went and looked at the menu and it looks great but this on the bottom of the menu "A 4% surcharge is added for San Francisco Employer Mandates" is something I find very upsetting. Whatever those may be they are just a cost of doing business. I'm assuming they are trying to get a point across to government officials.

    Wireless over stove camera?

    You obviously are going to need one that is rated for being put outside. Those will be much more resistant to heat and moisture. There are several good ones on the market but you may want to look at the Arlo cameras my Netgear as a starting point.

    New Wegman's near Boston

    I grew up in Rochester, the home of Wegmans and have really missed them ever since leaving the area. I know they're expanding but I don't think they're ever going to get to Louisville Kentucky. They can certainly make a killing here, the only large supermarkets we have our Kroger and Meiers out of Michigan, they both leave a lot to be desired. We also have a couple of Fresh Markets And One Whole Foods. I really miss the variety and level of service that Wegmans gives in every store I've ever been to.

    $5 Meal Challenge

    I clicked on the Red Boat link you provided it showed me that shipping was going to be $6.25? Expensive to start with and then relatively expensive shipping also, don't think I'm going to be getting any. I do wish we had a Wegmans however, I grew up in Rochester and got addicted to them.

    Favorite Thermometers....

    We have recently purchased a couple of the ThermoPop thermometers and really love them. They're very fast to read the temperature, they have a easy to read display and the fact that you can rotate the direction of the display comes in handy sometimes. Besides that they are cute! Everything I've seen they're just as accurate as the Thermapen. A little harder to fit in your pocket but unless you work in a professional kitchen how many people really do that?

    Ahh, Bisto! The Gravy Mix

    Where did you order it from? I ordered some from Amazon and had it in 2 weeks.

    Potato Puree, Mashed Potatoes, Pommes

    It's easy to tell that most posters here didn't grow up in the country, in the country completely smooth potatoes like you get when you run them through a ricer are a sign of a bad cook. They are supposed to have small pieces of actual potatoes in them which is a sign they were made with a masher. I got scolded many times by my grandmother if I over mashed potatoes! Of course it still I love them today.

    Jack in the Box

    Actually the "Prime Rib" sandwich sounds the best to me, the chicken sandwich doesn't interest me at all because of the Mayo and I don't like tomatoes so that leaves me with that one. I always like cheesesteak sandwiches anyway and was a cheesy garlic sauce it sounds yummy. Now we just had a Jack-in-the-Box around here I'd be all set.
