Rice, unless it's hamburger steak with onion/mushroom gravy, or white gravy with chicken fried steak. Those are the only 2 acceptable uses for mashed taters.

Usually that's because some parishes, like EBR, require an emissions test, which is a $20 sticker. I am in Pointe Coupee parish, which doesn't do emissions tests, and it is only $10. With that being said...

My mother in law lives on Chenal (part of False River). Last year, about a month after the draw down started, her sea wall collapsed. The cables popped that held it up. The state said it isn't their fault, because the cables were in bad shape and it could have happened during a natural drought, wh...

I had a 2012 Mazda 3 hatchback for about 6 months as a company car. I drove it like gas was free, which it was for me, and still avg'ed around 34 mpg. It wasn't a bad car at all, just don't plan to put anyone in the backseat, especially a child's car seat. Had lots of room in the hatch though....

Thanks for all the help. Stopped by Tony's and picked up some catfish, oysters, shrimp and hush puppies. I fried the fish using mustard and a mix of pure cornmeal and seasoned LA fish fry, with a little added seasoning. The oysters, I used the same cornmeal, but no mustard, of course. My wife wan...

Thanks! That sounds exactly how I'd like it. It clicked when you said crust. I always refer to it as a batter, but a simple crust is more what I'm after.
| Food and Drink Board|| re: What's a good batter for shrimp and catfish - jasonb01 on 1/8/15 at 9:16 pm|
So just straight mustard then the cornmeal? I guess what confuses me is some have milk, eggs, mustard, flour, cornmeal, and on and on. I don't like a thick batter either, but I do like it to be coated evenly. I don't like when the batter is falling off in places....

And I did a search on here and all that came up was someone wanting to know if they can batter their stuff the day before and store it in the fridge.
I really like the catfish that has mustard in the batter, but I don't have a clue as to how much mustard to use or anything. ...

I'm afraid to admit, but I really don't know how to make a decent batter. I can cook, grill, bake, etc., but anytime I've had fried seafood, it was either at a restaurant or someone's house that was doing the frying. I've fried before, but nothing more that rolling it in some Zatarain's. I think I...

Glad to hear, and I agree. I was hoping they wouldn't get a larger menu and just stick to making the best damn sammiches I have ever eaten.

Is it the same menu that was at the old location, just sandwiches and the spaghetti lunch special, or did they expand it? I can't wait to check out the new place. May go for lunch tomorrow....
