Hong Kong Chicken at Shing's - eleventy
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...

Firehouse BBQ in Watson -- brisket - eleventy
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 ...

Review of Stab's in Central - eleventy
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...

Gave Hi-Ho in Denham another chance today. - eleventy
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...

OT HCPs. -- Three year old stung by first wasp. - eleventy
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. ...

Mad Men cast on Inside the Actors Studio - eleventy
Very interesting. 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....

Why no Mad Men marathon in advance of the premiere? - eleventy
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 ...

Parents of the OT: Breastfeeding question - eleventy
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?...

Shall I vomit or just move on? - eleventy
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...

Gino's last night. Bemused about portion size. - eleventy
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,...

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!...

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....

Sandra Lee Halloween show - eleventy
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"....

Andrea Clesi McMakin on TD - eleventy
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....

Question concerning protocol on the OT - eleventy
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 ...
