re: Roux Separating from Stock - tewino
I've never had separation unless it is a very dark roux, and I never thought is was burned. I'm talking as dark as dark chocolate or even a little darker than that. Not black. When I try to mix with stock it is like old motor oil. It pisses me off when that happens. If I stop at milk chocolate ...

re: Roux Separating from Stock - tewino
[quote]Do you use homemade stock? I almost always use store bought. I wonder if a larger fat content of home-made stock comes into effect. [/quote] I use homemade stock but I can't see how that would matter. My theory is that your roux is burned despite you stirring and not seeing any black spec...

re: Roux Separating from Stock - tewino
I have a different theory. I've had the same problem several times and I don't think it matters about the temp of the roux or stock. Was your roux really dark? I love a really dark roux and that's when I have problems with separation. I never had a problem with a lighter brown roux. I thi...

Gardeners: Fall Schedule - tewino
I cleaned out me beds in the brutal heat of the last few weeks. Now I'm motivated to plant a fall garden. What to plant and when? I don't have good luck with fall tomatoes. I left my peppers in cuz they are producing great. I've planted beets, carrots and arugula before so I'll do those but...

re: Jazz Fest cancelled for the rest of Saturday - tewino
[quote]Glad I went last weekend. Talk about complete opposite ends of the spectrum as far as weather goes between the two weekends. [/quote] That's what I mean. It's always the same every year. 1/2 weekends is either hot as hell or a mud pit. Just move it up 2 weeks, or hold it in November- Mar...

re: Jazz Fest cancelled for the rest of Saturday - tewino
Organizers got their $$$ so STFU. Mud pit as usual. Hot as a MutherF'er as usual. One day they will come to their senses and move this event up about a month as in last week of March and first week of April, or even Feb/Mar. It's just shitty weather late April/early May. May as well be Bayou ...

re: French Market Bistro - tewino
I must say they are waaaayyyy better than they used to be. Same ownership as Mansurs but never the same attention. FMB historically was the stepchild and same old stale menu. Well its much improved now. I went back a few weeks ago and it was a whole different place. Updated with attention to fo...
