| Money Talk|| Building: Production builder versus custom builder - Dave Worth on 12/16/13 at 11:18 am|
I recently moved back to New Orleans and currently looking for a home in the Metairie/Harahan area. After a couple of weeks looking at dozens of houses, we can't find anything we really like. We were hoping to spend about $250K when it was all said and done (home plus any renovations). After not ...
| Money Talk|| Considering building a home...questions. - Dave Worth on 10/7/13 at 3:49 pm|
My wife and I live in Tennessee and just sold our house (going through the inspection today). We'll be moving back to New Orleans mid-November. One of the things we are considering is building a home.
We're 37/38 years old. We both have good jobs, no kids and no plans of ever having kids. Our...
| O-T Lounge|| Advice on upgrades before putting house on the market - Dave Worth on 5/31/13 at 11:16 am|
Looking for some opinions on which way to go.
My wife and I are about to put our house on the market and move back to New Orleans (from Memphis). We're currently fixing up some unfinished projects on the house...some painting, drywall issues, ect. Nothing really major, but it's going to cos...
| Food and Drink Board|| Rice cooker and steamer - Dave Worth on 10/10/12 at 10:48 am|
Looking for some ideas. 10 year old rice cooker bit the dust so went looking for a new one. I prefer the rice cooker to boiling it on the stove...never messes up and it's very easy. Something I can put on while I prep the rest of the meal and it cuts out a step.
Now (which is new to me) rice c...
| Food and Drink Board|| Spatchcock Chicken and Potatoes on the grill - Dave Worth on 10/8/12 at 12:24 pm|
Tried something new (at least to me) this weekend. Spatchcock chicken on the grill with potatoes.
Spatchcock chicken is just cutting out the backbone and laying it flat...butterflied bone down.
Then I took some regular Russett potatoes and cubed them and tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper...
| Food and Drink Board|| Just got a BGE - Dave Worth on 6/8/12 at 9:34 am|
Took the plunge and bought a Big Green Egg XL last weekend...delivered yesterday. My first charcoal grill I've ever owned or cooked on. I had a big gas Char Broil grill for the last 6 years that almost blew up the house on Memorial Day. Long story short...the wall between the fire area and the pr...
| Food and Drink Board|| Need help with choosing a cut of meat - Dave Worth on 1/13/12 at 10:47 am|
One of my favorite meals is Veal Marsala served over pasta. I've also made steak before where I fry it in butter and add red wine to the leftover to reduce for a sauce. I want to try a mixture of the two.
I want to prepare some beef the same way I do the veal...small pieces pounded or sliced th...
| Gaming Board|| Madden 12 (mostly) Franchise thoughts - Dave Worth on 8/29/11 at 2:57 pm|
I got Madden this weekend through Season Ticket. I was really excited because of all of the new additions to Franchise, but in reality I'm a bit disappointed. It's a huge step forward and I'll have a lot of fun playing, but there are some things I don't agree with.
I'm playing through a franchi...
| Tiger Rant|| Shaq/LSU ESPN commercial? - Dave Worth on 6/7/11 at 3:03 pm|
Just saw an ESPN commercial with Shaq. Bunch of sports anchors looking up in a tree...someone said "He's been up there awhile."
Shaq comes down a ladder wearing a Miami Bicycle Cop's uniform and a Tiger mascot slung over his shoulder. I think he said, "Are you okay, Mike?" and then walked off.
| Food and Drink Board|| Idea for Red Snapper - Dave Worth on 4/15/11 at 4:28 pm|
I have 2 8oz filets with skin on. I was planning on grilling them on a wood plank and topping with crab meat. I'm in Memphis, so fresh seafood ingredients are not readily available. Snapper is previously frozen and the crab will come out of the can/jar/tube
Never done a crab meat topping befor...
| Food and Drink Board|| Ideas for Lobster tails? - Dave Worth on 2/12/11 at 12:36 pm|
My wife picked up 4 lobster tails that were on sale, roughly 5 oz each. I've never cooked them before, so I'm looking for some ideas and help. They were frozen (hence why they are probably cheap), so this makes for a good and cheap test run.
It's just the two of us, so I'm thinking about splitt...
| Food and Drink Board|| Ground lamb - Dave Worth on 5/7/10 at 12:23 pm|
Any ideas on what to do here?
I have a pound in the freezer that I'm looking to do something with. The only thing I can think of is lamb burgers on pita bread. I can mix up some Rosemary, balsamic vinegar and some other herbs. Maybe some feta cheese mixed in. Top with a yogurt or ranch sauce ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Why did we get ball on the 20 after missed FG? - Dave Worth on 12/6/09 at 11:17 pm|
I don't know if I'm drunk and missing something so this is an honest question. I even looked up Gametracker on CBS Sports to make sure we started on the 20.
Suisham missed a 23 yard FG. That means he kicked from the 13 yard line (plus the 10 yard of the end zone), right? Stats show our drive st...
| Gaming Board|| Prototype - Dave Worth on 6/15/09 at 9:28 am|
Anyone else picked this up? This game is freaking incredible. I've never been this powerful in a game before and I love it. I was worried it might get old, but so far I'm loving it.
Saturday night, I started getting tired around 11pm. Put the game in figuring I was just mess around for a few ...
