| Food and Drink Board|| Hong Kong Chicken at Shing's - eleventy on 9/13/14 at 9:17 pm|
Yes, yes, Board of Health, etc. etc. Don't care.
There was a dish at Shing's -- Hong Kong Chicken. A boneless chicken breast fried tempura-style with a brown, slightly sweet gravy/sauce. Probably cornstarch based, probably had five spice powder. I loved it and have found it at no other Chinese r...
| Food and Drink Board|| Firehouse BBQ in Watson -- brisket - eleventy on 10/16/13 at 12:32 pm|
Just got a pound to do sandwiches for lunch. It is really very good. I have not had better anywhere in the BR area, and I have looked. What constitutes good brisket? To me, it has decent bark with a lot of flavor, it is tender to the point of falling apart, lots of smoky flavor in the meat, doesn't ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Review of Stab's in Central - eleventy on 9/28/13 at 9:57 am|
Went last night at the last minute with friends. Glad we did. I know there has been discussion that the idea of a steak house with a high price point will be challenged to succeed in Central. I understand that perspective, but sincerely hope it does stay around. They seem to have a pedigreed team, w...

Looking forward to it based on the reviews on here. Will report on the repast when I return!...
| Food and Drink Board|| Gave Hi-Ho in Denham another chance today. - eleventy on 10/6/12 at 4:27 pm|
I went once when they first opened, which has been a long time ago now -- close to three years.
It was bad.
I got a pork sandwich, heavy. Half of the meat had no sauce on it, the meat was cold and the whole thing had very little taste. I had always heard pretty good things about the place, s...
| O-T Lounge|| OT HCPs. -- Three year old stung by first wasp. - eleventy on 7/3/12 at 11:45 am|
So she was stung on the leg about two hours ago. Hurt for a few minutes. Got a bit red. Did not swell. She really hasn't complained much. The redness is already gone. Nurse at the peds office said only give her Benadryl if she seemed to need it (lot of swelling/redness,etc.). She has not needed it. ...
| Movie/TV Board|| Mad Men cast on Inside the Actors Studio - eleventy on 5/14/12 at 6:47 pm|
Suffice to say that Kiernan Shipka will be imminently capable of doing whatever they need her to in the role of Sally. She is 12 and appears absolutely brilliant. She carries herself and speaks like someone at least twice her age. Plus she's adorable....

On the island now. Need advice.
| Food and Drink Board|| My 1000th post, and I want to make it here - eleventy on 4/13/12 at 11:38 am|
where I started ... with the snobs, patricians, and food geeks of the F&D board! Great info, good conversations, even if we all apparently take it far too seriously. :cheers: :cheers:
And my first anchor as well!! It is a red-letter day!!...
| Movie/TV Board|| Why no Mad Men marathon in advance of the premiere? - eleventy on 3/20/12 at 9:57 pm|
I know they show three episodes at a time before the crack of dawn on Sundays, but why in the universe would they not do an all-day marathon on Saturday or Sunday leading up to the season premiere, especially considering that it has been about a century since the last season ended?
Yes, yes, in ...
| O-T Lounge|| Parents of the OT: Breastfeeding question - eleventy on 3/9/12 at 2:44 pm|
I know it's the "right" thing to do for the kids, and all, but how long is long enough?
I am hearing of and seeing people breastfeeding their toddlers -- up to age three or more. This does not seem...correct.
What d'ya think? How long were your kids breastfed?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Shall I vomit or just move on? - eleventy on 2/15/12 at 1:05 pm|
OK. Just got some turnip greens out of the freezer and heated them up. These are greens from our garden which I picked, triple-washed, tore and stemmed carefully, cooked and froze a few months ago. About to eat them and lo and behold there is a WORM in the pot! He is an organic worm from my own yard...
| Food and Drink Board|| Uses for leftover eggroll wrappers - eleventy on 1/11/12 at 9:29 am|
Made an app with them Monday, now have some left I want to use. I see a lot of potential. I don't want to deep fry them or do anything too fattening. Southwestern...Pizza...Apple dumpling.
Anyone have any other ideas?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Gino's last night. Bemused about portion size. - eleventy on 12/17/11 at 2:29 pm|
I preface this by stating that I love Gino's. Have been a good customer for lunch and dinner for nigh on 20 years.
I went last night and had, overall, the usual pleasant experience. However, I was displeased with my portion size. My husband noted on the way there that he hoped he would get full,...
| Food and Drink Board|| Wild Mushroom Agnolotti - eleventy on 11/30/11 at 11:52 am|
Just ate a few of these little Buitoni gems for lunch. They are so very good -- much better than I would have ever expected. Little olive oil, Parmigiana Reggiano and cracked pepper. Mm-MM!...
| Movie/TV Board|| No matter what else Kevin Costner does - eleventy on 11/9/11 at 5:19 pm|
if he had never done another thing after saying "Wanna have a catch?" in Field of Dreams, that was enough. I shed a tear every single time! And I'm not a dad or a son. I can only imagine it's pretty heartwrenching if you are....
| Food and Drink Board|| Sandra Lee Halloween show - eleventy on 10/24/11 at 5:28 pm|
I have known for some time that Sandra Lee is a hack and a lush, but her Halloween show is dreadful. She just spent 10 minutes on the history of Sonny and Cher. On a cooking show.
And I hate how she says "melk" instead of "milk"....
| O-T Lounge|| Andrea Clesi McMakin on TD - eleventy on 9/21/11 at 2:20 pm|
I thought Andrea Clesi was a nice lady! What is she doing on TD? She comments in today's Advocate "Pop Quiz" that she is currently "surfing" tigerdroppings.com. I am going to assume she is neither on the Rant nor in the OT.
Sorry (not really :doublebird:) if Germans. I searched....
| O-T Lounge|| Question concerning protocol on the OT - eleventy on 9/14/11 at 2:43 pm|
Let's say that a relatively new poster recognizes another poster that she/he knows IRL. Noob notices a few well-placed...um...fabrications, shall we say... by the other poster. Should the noob stfu? Loudly and publicly reveal the lies? Lie low and enjoy the shite parade?
I'm thinking lie low and ...
