I would have no problem drinking it. The odds of getting one molecule of that kids pee in your water is remote, the gallons of bird urine is another matter. Birds fly over all day, animals pee & crap in the area and it is washed in by rain.
Exposure to sunlight and pumps aerate the water, this k...

Do all the birds, animals and insects in Portland wear diapers? Do these people think a molecule of urine will actually hurt them? There are water shortages all over the west coast, t...

I just cut it up into bite size pieces, fry onion and peppers with a piece of bacon or sausage, throw in s/p, rice wine vinegar, cover until in starts to get limp. Serve.
That being said, mustard greens and turnip greens have very similar flavor and texture profiles and cost much less, they are j...

Fixed it for you. I think fruit and nuts in tuna/chicken salad must be a chick thing, notice the most popular one in town, Calvin's, doesn't have that junk in it.

It's not usually the location, I tried most of the places in that spot, none were very good. Look at the 'worst' location in BR, where Omi is now. I think the quality of the food will draw people in.

| Food and Drink Board|| re: Drusilla Seafood? - andouille on 4/11/14 at 2:55 pm|
Watching the life cycle of a seafood restaurant in BR is a lot like watching a celebrity biopic movie. They start out small, grow in popularity, get a bigger place, branch out, then comes the down cycle. The product becomes stale and dated, newer trends pass them by, the fan base ages into apathy.

Don't spend a bundle until you try a few first. As beautiful as they look in the display case, I found the sausages from WF to be dry and pretty tasteless. I think in an effort to be 'healthy' they skimp on the fat content, sausages need fat.

| Food and Drink Board|| re: Drusilla Seafood? - andouille on 4/10/14 at 10:30 pm|
I don't enjoy it at all, however, I have friends who love the place. I there are a lot of restaurants meant for people who prefer essentially the same cuisine they have been eating for 40 years, nothing wrong with that, and Druscilla fits that mold.
If you like things like fish covered with sauce...

Original for me. The big problem with Louisiana hot sauce is that it isn't very hot. I guess if I was having a children's birthday party in Dubuque, Iowa I could use LHS on the cupcakes to make the icing pink. ...
