I'll start. It kind of bugs me that people think Prime Rib is prime-grade beef. It's really just the first ribs of the cut. I guess it could be prime grade, but that's not why it's got that name....

Who on here remembers "[b]The Library[/b]" on Chimes Street just off LSU's campus? I used to love that place. They used to have a sandwich that was a roast beef and cheese muffelatta. Gravy, no lettuce or tomato, just olive mix.
So my question is, was this a Joe's Special or a Library Special?...

My microwave has a turntable that rotates at 6 rpm. That means, if I put the food item on the front of the turntable, the food returns to the front every 10 seconds of cook time and is much easier to grab out of the oven. Keep that in mind when choosing your cook time.
