I was watching a show on the Cooking Channel, some woman from New York was learning how to crawfish, she was walking out pulling up the traps, she seemed to be a good sport about it. Then they brought her back to the a restaurant, The Crawfish Hut I believe, to show her how to make etouffe. She was ...

| Food and Drink Board|| Rec near NO airport - andouille on 9/28/14 at 8:21 am|
Coming home from a trip and about to start a serious medical regimen the next day, sort of a last meal, but not that serious. No fried seafood, is the Brick Oven still excellent? I will be worn out from flights so I don't want to go to far into town since I have to drive back to BR after.
Am I o...
| Food and Drink Board|| Worst "yummy" dish prepared by people who can't cook? - andouille on 9/5/14 at 3:00 am|
I am in toxic shock from too many church pot luck dinners over the summer. I have had some really bad food, jello salads, casseroles, lots of cream cheese, bacon and jalapeños.
But the tried and true worst crap of them all is the cocktail wieners, grape jelly & BBQ sauce in a crock pot. How could...

| Tiger Rant|| SEC Network Replays --- Zero LSU Wins - andouille on 8/16/14 at 7:29 pm|
I just looked through the 'classic' replays for the next week on the Alab...SEC Network. If you didn't know that the Tiger were the winningest SEC in the last decade, you would think they are on the level of Vanderbilt or Kentucky. None of the replays featuring LSU are LSU wins.

| Food and Drink Board|| The ubiquitous soup du jour, Tomato Bisque - andouille on 8/7/14 at 2:05 am|
Does Sysco sell this stuff by the 55 gallon drum? My wife and I have a standing bet, she always asks what the SDJ is, if it's tomato bisque we split a dessert, it has been a while since I didn't have to buy dessert.
We were in Lafayette today and had lunch at Le Bon Temps, a very nice, although ...
| Movie/TV Board|| How does anyone actually watch network TV without DVR??? - andouille on 7/16/14 at 2:15 pm|
I'm away from home and my DVR box, I rarely watch network TV, but the commercial are fricking endless. This is worse than coitus interruptus, do people actually do this?? I bet the closer the elections get it is worse. It had to be 20 minutes per hour for commercials.
Thank God for Netflix, Amazo...

Since the MOL failed to support the people in the unincorporated areas of SE-BR I hope they return the favor. If I need anything from Dillard's of Sears a nice trip to Hammond is in order.

I crave kimchi occasionally but I can't find a good retail source. I've tried the Asian place on Lee near Highland , but the product is very inconsistent. Sometimes it is all stalks and roots no leafy.
Does anyone have a reliable source?...

If you feed your children by telemarketing, I hope they starve to death. I support a law that if a telemarketer is on the phone with a driver and a fatal accident results, the telemarketer can be charged with manslaughter.

We have 3 in BR that I am familiar with, I list them in my order of preference:
Al-Noor Indian Cuisine on George O'Neil
Dempsey's on Jefferson
Taco Boudreaux on Sherwood
Of course a toxic waste dump is preferable to Pizza Hut, possible the worst pizza that people actually pay money for, but ...

How did this get an Academy nomination? I was drawn in because of the technology hook, man falls in love with his OS. But this long drawn out borefest could be watched with your eyes closed, 95% of the movie is just dialogue between one character you can see and one you can't.
