Penang Garden on Washington is around the corner from House of Nanking.....HN was just OK.....Penang Garden was ridiculously good, the Singapore Spicy Crab is worth every bit of the $38 price.

[quote]My wife makes a lasagna soup and it's amazing. Taste like lasagna and takes half the time to make. It also gives me a fix every now and then because I rarely make it myself and hardly ever order it in a restaurant.
If serious I would like to have that recipe :bow:...

| Food and Drink Board|| re: Crawfish pot for boiling - BooDreaux on 2/12/14 at 4:37 pm|
Last year I got a Cajun Rocket pot and frankly i was amazed at the efficiency of fuel usage and how quickly it brings to a boil.
They aren't inexpensive, though IMHO I think they are worth it. I'm going to get some more of them I have the 80qt at present. They are a Louisiana company

Very nice!! Can't do this time, though I really really want to, since leaving Saturday to cover Bass Master Classic.
Like the simplified format a great deal, hopefully will be able to participate in the next one's. Will be interesting seeing how my initial thoughts compare to others.

Put your oil in the pot and let it heat to 350 before you add your flour. Add flour and stir for 15 minutes. When it hi...

Did 10 cups of flour in oven(5 cups per pan) at 375 degrees with no oil.
Probably took an hour and half to get very dark.

Only thing I would do is roast the shrimp shells and heads for 30-45 minutes at 375 degrees. IMO makes a rounder richer flavored stock
