re: Pontchartrain Beach Sky Ride - gumbo2176

re: Looking for a new Flat Screen TV - gumbo2176
[quote]Crazy how good TVs are so cheap [/quote] Yep. I've got some age on me and I can remember buying a console 25 inch RCA color TV back in the mid 70's that cost over $500. Now you can get much larger TV's with much clearer pictures that also don't weigh as much as a teenager for a hell o...

re: HBO's Atlanta's missing and murdered - gumbo2176
[quote]Yikes right off the bat pics of murdered kids that's most unpleasant [/quote] I agree. Most shows about people being murdered don't get that graphic in showing bodies, especially in clear photos. If they show a body it is usually pixilated to there is no real definition. Seeing pictu...

re: Good pickling recipe - gumbo2176
[quote] tried to pickle dill pickles one time and the flavor was great but they pickles were all mushy and not crispy [/quote] Did you cold pack them or put them in a pot of hot water after canning them? I've found if you just cold pack them, meaning put the room temperature slices in the jar ...

re: how to prep crawfish for peeling? - gumbo2176
[quote]. The texture of the meat seemed different and I like the flavor better also.[/quote] Probably the texture was firmer because they were not cooked as long. You can do the same thing using regular style boiled crawfish in cooked dishes by simply putting the crawfish in almost at the end...

re: how to prep crawfish for peeling? - gumbo2176
Cook them like normal or you'll wind up with underseasoned crawfish tail meat and won't be happy with the end product. They'll be like those damn Chinese crawfish, par-boiled with no real taste, so what's the point. I usually boil about 2 sacks a year extra to peel and use for crawfish pies, e...
