re: Septic tank fun. Clogged field line. - HoustonsTiger
I will actually be completely overhauling mine this weekend. The city in Harris County requires an aerobic system / sprinkler setup which is about a 20k expense. Besides the money, I don't really want even 'treated' discharge covering the surface of my lawn where kids play tackle football. So I'm go...

re: Surface soil help - HoustonsTiger
The area is mostly shaded so likely St. Aug. I don't particualarly like that grass but I hear it is pretty low maintenance which works for me. My main concern is making sure I don't put anything over this septic which causes an issue. Would the 60/40 coarse sand bio solids be ok?...

Surface soil help - HoustonsTiger
Full disclosure - I am an extreme novice all things lawn / garden related. I just had to re-do some of the septic leach field lines as they were 20 years old and the system started to fail. SO I dug trenches, laid gravel and installed the pipes then backfilled. My entire lawn was destroyed in the...

re: So I tried noodles in the crawfish boil this weekend.... - HoustonsTiger
I just grabbed a cheap pack of Fettuccine style noodles, the flat wide ones. They went in when the crawfish went in, in a side basket with mushrooms and sausage. Waited for the rolling boil to come back then cooked for about 3 minutes followed by killing the heat, and a 30min soak. They came out ...

So I tried noodles in the crawfish boil this weekend.... - HoustonsTiger
Someone posted an article a week or so ago about a guy throwing some fettuccine type noodles in the boil asking if it was good....so I decided to try it this weekend. In short, it was excellent. I put them in the 'side strainer' times with the mushrooms and sausage (which at my house go in at the...

re: Starting a lawn from scratch - help - HoustonsTiger
Thanks for all the help / comments. It seems like going with a few inches of sand, follow by perhaps 1-2" of top soil and then sod should do the trick if I'm understanding everyone correctly. Will do a bit of research on the grass recommendations as well. To say I am a beginner with lawn m...

re: Kitchen Tricks That Make Life Easier - HoustonsTiger
One trick that I was very suspect of but I have since been proved wrong / humbled by my fiance about, is when making roux she will brown the flour in the oven first. She spreads desired amount evenly on a cookie tray and places in oven at 350degrees for ~30 minutes or so, forking it to spread / m...

re: Need a new outside covered patio TV - HoustonsTiger
For my outside TV I went to Best Buy and asked them if they had any demo TV's or anything that was returned that they couldn't resell. Ended up getting a 42" for $125. That was 3 or 4 summers ago.......

I made a big pot of chicken & sausage gumbo yesterday evening. It finished around 9:30-10 is when I cut the heat to it. Had planned to let it cool for a few hours and put it in the fridge, but ended up falling asleep. Woke up just a minute ago and touched the pot, was still mildly warm. Just fin...
