Grew up in Ascension Parish and moved away after graduating LSU in early 90s. Sporadic visits through '03, then family popped smoke. My connection to the area since that time has been LSU football, TD, and contact with a few friends. One’s getting married in BR in January and I just pulled the st...

Making pot pie tomorrow, poaching breast today.
Normally I can get legs or boneless breast fillets, but no luck today.
I'm thinking one hour at low boil, then 20 minute rest with heat off.
Open to and grateful for suggestions....

| Tech Board|| How hard is re-installing Windows (8.0)? - GarmischTiger on 6/15/14 at 11:22 am|
Perhaps a better question is, can a non-tech savvy guy like me do it without cursing and throwing things?
Our > one-year-old laptop (HP Pavilion) has started misbehaving. Won't go to certain websites, won't install updates - myriad error messages about drivers and required updates. All very stra...
| Music Board|| Streaming Classical Music - GarmischTiger on 4/29/14 at 11:40 am|
I’ve started doing this at work to have something slightly soothing that’s not too distracting fill the silence and random office clatter. My public radio station has two-hour classical sets on Monday and Friday which are great, and I’ve been using Pandora to fill the void. After two weeks it’s cl...
| Food and Drink Board|| Homemade Pot Pie Question: Crust - GarmischTiger on 4/8/14 at 5:58 pm|
Well, mostly homemade - I bought the crust (Pillsbury roll & bake), which leads to my question: should I pre-bake the bottom crust, and if so for how long?
It's been a long time since I've made one of these and I don't remember what I've done in the past.
Any help would be appreciated - ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Usage of the word "feed" to mean "meal" or "party" - GarmischTiger on 3/9/14 at 1:02 pm|
RA: Move to F&D, please
This is certainly an inane topic, but it's a slow-moving Sunday and I'm hoping the OT can help me figure this out.
Since moving to California last year I've noticed the prevalence of the use of the word "feed" - always preceded by an adjectival...

He's a second-grader and will be the "Star Attraction" kid in his class for the next two weeks (every kid gets a turn). He has to fill out a poster of likes, dislikes, pictures of family, etc. One section is, "When I grow up . . ." I asked what he wanted to put down for this and he immediately sai...

I've got two thick 12-oz loin chops that I've butterflied, slathered with a sesame-apricot preparation, rolled (lengthwise) and trussed. Almost exactly like two miniature stuffed pork loins. I know my cooking time and temp for doing a whole stuffed loin (250 until 140; ~ 4 hours). Looking for a ba...

Did this about ten years ago for Thanksgiving and don't remember who we used. Looking to do it again this year and would like to give my business to a Louisiana-based company with (obviously) a quality product. Oyster dressing would be a MAJOR plus.

Anybody do this?
My big tree is fruiting and I have more than I can handle. Gonna do ribs this weekend, and I was thinking of tossing on some bacon-wrapped figs to go along for the ride.
Will this work, or will the slow cooking turn them to mush?...

My first foray to the esteemed Music Board - I trust such a question is not out of line.
Bringing a hard drive along on a recent family trip resulted in my receiving the entirety of my brother-in-law's library. We share similar taste in music, but I've never been terribly deep WRT Mr. Young. I ...

Ended up getting an app and sending via fax for 99 cents from phone. CSB to be sure, but I'm puzzled by this....
