We watched the first season on Amazon Prime for free and are waiting for the second to be available. I wonder if they wait for the next season to start before making it available to Prime members for free. Anyone know?...
| Pelicans Talk|| Luke Babbitt - VOR on 10/1/14 at 8:08 am|
For some reason (a TP article this morning, I guess), I was thinking about this guy. Will he contribute significantly this year? He's a 6'9" first round pick who shows flashes of a decent shot. Is it just wishful thinking?...

Really, The Voice is the only one of those shows I watch. But without looking it up or using 'da google, how many of you actually know what the term "pitchy" refers to? Sharp? Flat? What?...

So I was in Fresh Market and remembered R2R's comments about Sarah's salsa. Picked some up and it's damned good. And we tend to go for the good stuff. Recommend.

Four of us had dinner at Marcello's for the first time last night. We all enjoyed it a lot.
The place was buzzing, but we were seated on time for our reservation. In fact, we asked to change tables and it was not a problem. The staff was courteous and friendly.
Let me start by praising the f...

| Movie/TV Board|| Happy Valley on Netflix - VOR on 9/14/14 at 8:47 am|
A six episode series from England. In the beginning you sort of think the plot is a rip off from Fargo. But the series is far from that.
It's very dark and brutal, and it follows a British policewoman going after a released con who had raped her daughter AND who has become involved in a hapha...
| Food and Drink Board|| About Marcello's in New Orleans - VOR on 9/7/14 at 10:58 pm|
I've heard a couple of good reports, and I know I've seen it mentioned on this board.
What's the scoop? I looked at the menu and it looked very, very traditional. Is it worth a try, though? Recommendations?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Last Minute Nice Meal at La Petite Grocery - VOR on 9/5/14 at 8:55 am|
My wife and decided to walk down Magazine last night for dinner. We were thinking of giving Baie Rouge a try, but the limited menu has never really inspired either of us to try it (at least for dinner). Just didn't see anything I was in the mood for.
So we walked down to LPG and walked right i...

Last season I watched about half of Ray Donovan.
I just picked it up again last week. I don't want to go back and "binge watch" to catch up to anything so I have a couple of questions.
So I know Marvin is, er, was, an aspiring artist and was hooking up with Ray's daughter, etc. Can someone ...

Anyway, it's an Insider article.
[i]1. Anthony Davis, New Orleans Pelicans
Projected 2014-15 WARP: 14.3 | Win%: 66 percent
Davis has already blossomed into the kind of player the Pelicans hoped he'd be when they won the 2013 draft lottery and, at 21, he can still get much better. Davi...

So I was having a beer with some friends and watching some bull shite on the bar's tv. And there's this commercial advertising a new Subway sandwich:
steak, cheese and egg white.
Does anyone else find this as funny as I do?
Sorry to have taken up your time, but I did laugh out loud. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| New Gas Range? - VOR on 8/19/14 at 9:20 am|
One of these days, it's going to be time to replace our range/oven. Our kitchen is small, and the current range is a 30". So that's probably the we'll go with (don't want to cut countertop, etc.)
Anyway, we're sticking with gas and thinking of options. Anyone been in the market lately and have...

Back to my recently discovered deep fryer that I found tucked away in a cabinet and that I've used once.
Here's what I know (or think I know) about oil choices.
Peanut oil has a higher smoking/breaking down point than canola oil, but probably not enough to matter for most uses: 450 as oppose...
