Found these at Alexander's and they are much better than any flour tortilla around sans my Mexican connection homemade. Flour only now but they are starting to make corn. Give them a shot....
| Money Talk|| Commercial Real Estate Investment Question - Martini on 2/25/14 at 12:55 pm|
Can anyone tell me what can I do with maintenance on a building as far as expensing it? I'm not sure but I believe it can be used. Say refurbishing rather than replacing a roof?
I am just having a mind loss right now and can't remember but I do know I spent $75k on roof work this year not replac...

It's on McClelland a block off Evangeline. Saw it mentioned in the hole in the wall thread and haven't had it in fifteen years.
Well I had a cheeseburger today and it is as good as I remember and as good as any if not all in Baton Rouge. When I turned the corner at 11:30 and there was a line it ...

And originally I spelled it like Dan Quayle.
I have a large spot for them but have never grown them. I remember as a kid digging them but all mentors are making gravel.
What to plant, when to plant and how to plant. I want different varieties. It is mid Feb so I hope I'm not to late getting st...

Good cracklings. Good sausage. Bad boudin. Not sure what is in it but it doesn't taste right.
And not a fan of the fried stuffed pistolettes. But not a fan of those anywhere. ...

| Food and Drink Board|| Sante Fe in Prairieville - Martini on 2/7/14 at 10:12 am|
Apparently I have to meet some people here for lunch. I went one time years ago when it was a bad Mexican joint. What's the poop on this joint?
Food? It's lunch so I can easily find something small and tidy I'm guessing.
Who owns this? Seems it was a local deal if I remember discussions on he...

This is a good new series on PBS about a couple opening a restaurant in Eastern North Carolina. Filmed like a documentary. On PBS 3 tonight. If you haven't seen it it's worth it. Really shows the ups and downs of owning and trying to ru...

| Food and Drink Board|| Mushrooms and what to do with them - Martini on 2/5/14 at 11:36 am|
I'm a fan of all mushrooms and like cooking with them.
I had a big pack of baby bella's so last night I cooked a couple NY Strips for me and my child and topped with onions and mushrooms sautéed in butter. Not much better than that.
This morning I had creamed mushrooms on toast. Sliced and sau...
| Food and Drink Board|| Franks Restaurant - Martini on 2/4/14 at 2:07 pm|
Im not a big promoter of their biscuits and for the most part the breakfast is just decent basic breakfast.
But they can get a soft scrambled egg right and not many places can. I approve....
| Food and Drink Board|| Speaking of Food Trucks, where are they? - Martini on 2/4/14 at 9:52 am|
I know a couple bailed to New Orleans but that movement seems to have gone over like a turd in a punchbowl.
Is is like it was or settled in and calmed down or is it done? Or maybe I just haven't been paying attention. Do they even still have that roundup?
We just needed a food truck discussio...

Picked a bunch of big cabbages out of my garden yesterday. Gave about six away but need to cook some. I have a couple good, different slaw recipes but need some different. Have a roll recipe I don't care for. I do put them whole on the Egg with butter but I'm not lighting the pit today.

I have an area about 10' * 40' and I want to plant some sort of melon but I have never grown them. Watermelon or cantaloupe or whatever.
What does well here? Variety? How, when to plant and how to grow?. It's a 12" raised bed dedicated to melon only.
What is a mush melon? ...

The complaints or comments on the cost of burgers and fries in the Moo Yah thread reminded me of a conversation my wife and I have on occasion. We eat out a bit but both cook and get tired of eating out anyway. We discuss it because we have many friends who eat EVERY meal out or pick up or have foo...

| Food and Drink Board|| The Old Country Store, Lorman MS - Martini on 1/13/14 at 7:49 pm|
Had the fried chicken for the first time Saturday. I'd have to say it certainly lives up to its reputation. It's the absolute best I've had i would say since my mother quit cooking it years ago.
Too much vinegar in the greens and potato salad too sweet for me but man that chicken. Washed down wit...
