| Political Talk|| Can we all agree about a few pieces of legislation? - BayouBlitz on 11/18/14 at 2:12 pm|
1) I would propose that no bill proposed can be over 5 pages, and that any one bill contains only one piece of legislation. No more 'bridges to nowhere' in the last few pages of a 5000 page bill.
2) Term limits for all public offices
3) Get the government (state and federal) out of marriage.

Since we're all going roux/gumbo crazy around here...
I sometimes do microwave, sometimes stovetop in skillet. Just depends on my mood. But you can get a very dark roux in the microwave, safer, in my opinion, than stove top. (safer as in without burning).
Just an alternative method for th...

Okay, a few years back, a friend of mine made chili. He put 3 or 4 bay leaves in it ( :yack:) and DIDN'T pull them back out.
So he gave me a bowl of it. I ate about half of it, occasionally having to pull out a chunk of bay leaf. No big deal. But...
A girlfriend of mine at the time came ov...

| Food and Drink Board|| Something different with salmon? - BayouBlitz on 9/23/14 at 1:07 pm|
My boss gave me a nice thick salmon filet, frozen. I know the standard is to thaw it and grill it, or go with a hot cast iron skillet.
What other ways can I use this salmon that you guys have found success with? Cooked, preferably.
Maybe something with a sauce?...

Am I the only one who quarters the sausage rounds before putting in gumbo or jambalaya? I cut the round sections a little thicker than most, and quarter them from there.
This way, you can get sausage and chicken in the same spoonful/forkful.
It's just the way I've always done it.
Go ahead ...
