Shoestring? The frozen bag of Checkers fries? The curly ones? Steak fries?
I find myself going from the shoestring ones and the checkers/Popeyes looking fries. ...

I didn't see it listed so I apologize if it's already been covered.
Those jackets the snowboarders wear are really cool. Anyone know/read if they are massed produced to buy?

| Food and Drink Board|| I'm on the fence about trying anchovies. Help!! - la_birdman on 1/26/14 at 2:18 am|
What do they taste like?
I know worcestershire sauce has anchovies in it and I like the taste of that.
I'm having a hard time getting past the little skeletal filets on a pizza.
Are they fishy or do they taste like steak sauce?
Pardon my ignorance.
| More Sports Board|| Anyone know if there will be a different trophy for the NC next season? - la_birdman on 1/6/14 at 11:43 pm|
My dad and I were talking about it and we really have no idea. I love that waterford crystal football personally. I'd hate to see them go to something that looks weird.
Anyone know if the trophy will stay the same?...
| Food and Drink Board|| What places are open on Thanksgiving? - la_birdman on 11/26/13 at 12:22 am|
Not looking for a traditional turkey dinner, just a place with some good food and where we can get drinks.
We'll be driving over from Lake Charles.
We did this in 2011 and went to Ruffino's, I assume that place will be open.
Any other places? Sullivan's perhaps?
Crap, maybe Hooters?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Made my first salsa tonight. - la_birdman on 10/25/13 at 11:23 pm|
Wasn't brain surgery. It was really easy actually.
I followed directions for my favorite salsa from a place I went to when I lived in Florida.
Doesn't look like much in the Cuisinart but it tastes just like the real thing.
Best salsa I've had.
| Food and Drink Board|| Anyone have any recommended grilled chicken wing recipes? - la_birdman on 10/17/13 at 12:19 am|
I'm looking to grill some of these up on our little propane grill. It uses those propane cylinders that you screw on.
Even on low, it still tends to get a little hot, especially with the lid closed.
I've never tried grilled chicken wings but I don't think it'll be like splitting atoms. ...

We were tailgating like we always do, hooking up the tv and starting to grill and getting the drinks going.
A lady walks by our tailgate who was walking her dog. Only her dog had an obvious spinal cord injury. He was paralyzed from the rear legs to his tail. His rear legs where just withered t...

I never eat at McD's, but I love me some wings so I was curious.
I tried them and they are really good.
Anyone who lives near a Publix grocery store knows what I'm talking about when I say they're just like the Publix deli hot wings.
They look like just regular fried wings, I'm sure you'v...

I'm going to bring some oysters to the game this Saturday. I have oyster shells and a decent little grill.
Any good recipes for chargrilled oysters from the F&DB?
I'm going to bring some butter, shredded cheese, some tabasco, maybe some garlic powder.
Any suggestions would be great!

I remember watching this as a kid but it could've been from the late 60s even, just before I was born.
It was about airplanes or some military type show. I'm almost certain it was a series but it could've been a movie, I guess.
The only thing I remember is in the opening credits they showed t...

All this guy does, at least on the Tiger Rant, is flame other posters and try to derail threads. He does it day in and day out.
The rant is crazy enough without this guy's ridiculousness.

This is for anyone over 30. It was a shark movie that came out in the late 70s, it was after Jaws, that I'm sure of.
This guy was a marine biologist or something and he wore this necklace with a shark tooth on it. As long as he wore it when he scuba dived, the sharks wouldn't mess with him. ...

She lives in Pennsylvania but comes to visit every couple years and w...

This is what I cooked. Some chipotle seasoned ribs.
Cooked on a low fire for a couple of hours on my bro in law's pit. That thing turns out some killer ribs.

We had a pitcher last season that had a habit of letting his right arm hang while he was getting the plays from the catcher. He would almost bend over while getting the plays and his right arm would hang and he'd hold the ball.
My dad said Ranaudo but he wasn't there last year.
Who was it...

I had a medium sized sago palm in this pot but I moved it. What would be easier on ...

I never got to see it in the theatre, since I was 6 when it came out....

First thing is this grill is awesome. I absolutely love it. It turns out the best cooked bbq.
It's actually an old cast iron tool box that he took the tray out of and cut a rectangular opening on one side so you can regulate how much air goes in it. The door to regulate it is held in place b...
