Tonights menu

6 posts in this topic

In our household, tonights menu will be pizza (lukewarm, I'm sure) and hot dogs at the elementary school fundraiser. It's for a good cause.

What's on your menu tonight, and how did you decide what to do with what you had?

Further to this, let's say something doesn't sell as well as you want. What do you do with it?

Finally, I'm not sure how long your week lasts, Chef, and want to thank you ever so much for continuing the tradition of fabulous Q & A's. Thanks for expanding my horizon.

Wow. It's making that cheap, supermarket hot dog sound all the worse. I'm drooling over the hangar and the oyster chowder.

The walleye sort of got me. From whence the walleye? I don't believe it is native to your area, but I could be wrong. The only walleye we will eat is that we catch up at our Cabin (or close environs). We sort of have a thing about wild game :shock: .

Walleye comes form the great lakes of Michigan and up around canada. we have a hotel up there. I go and fish in that area and fell in love with this fish. Its great this time of year.

We have our best luck fishing walleyes with worm harnesses. You? Glad you fish. Does your son like to fish?

Assuming that you catch walleye and cook them for your family, what is your method?

We both fish together. He likes to fish except when it cold.

we also use worms but live mainly and we also have used stink bait.

As far as prep, he likes his with cornmeal and i like mine sauteed till crisp, because i like the skin very crisp. He likes tartare sauce and I like just a bit of lemon or even a mixture of soy wassabi
