re: The Andouille trail in the River Parishes - hungryone
The boudin trail focuses on places that make boudin. The andouille trail does not—plenty of the places listed are just restaurants that happen to have an item or 2 on the menu that contains andouille. Like Coffee & in Norco...it’s just a garden variety cafe that serves chicken and andouille gumbo....

re: Do yourself a favor, buy Aunt Jemima Buttermilk complete, just add water - hungryone
I’m a Kodiak Power Cakes flapjack and waffle mix fan. Whole grain, added protein, and can be used to make things other than pancakes and waffles. On-box recipe for chocolate chip cookies is pretty good....

re: New Homeowner needing Charcoal Ideas - hungryone
I’ve given a few copies of Steven Raichlen’s How to Grill cookbooks as presents to college kids moving out on their own. It is straightforward, loaded with photos, and covers more than just the meat basics. Good info on building a fire and various cooking methods and grill types. [link=(https://ww...

re: Spirit Airlines - Help/Feedback Needed - hungryone
It’s fine if you’re price sensitive and have a flexible schedule. As mentioned up thread, most destinations have a single daily or every few days flight, so if you hit a weather delay or maintenance, you can get stuck someplace for a few extra days. I emphatically would not fly them on internation...

re: I just found weevils in 15 pounds of basmati rice. - hungryone
If you have a compost pile, it’s perfectly fine to toss the rice into it, weevils and all. But definitely go through everything else in your pantry. Pantry moths can chew through cardboard boxes and plastic bags....

re: Butchering/Storing a Cow advice - hungryone
I do this, my old LSU roommate runs fancy Angus in SW LA. Find out who is doing the butchering, the place will usually have a set list of standard cuts on a checklist or form. You can tick off how much you want as ground, whether you want the oxtails and shanks, what cuts of roasts, etc. I prefer...

re: Lizards?? - hungryone
Brown anoles are spreading like wildfire. I read some scientific piece on how the brown anoles are carving out a ground-feeding niche, and the green anoles are moving upward into trees and shrubs as a result of pressure from the brown ones. Browns are definitely more territorial, faster moving, an...

re: Tree ID - hungryone
Yep, all but last are various oaks. Go look for acorns from them--shape/color of acorn can help you ID the specific variety of oak. Many oaks have slightly variable leaf shapes, so leaves will only get you so far. Spindly last one might be some kinda fruit tree? Plum, pear?...

re: Neighbor's papaya tree--I'm kind of jelly - hungryone
Ive seen quite a few productive papayas over the years in SE LA....typically in a protected courtyard or up against a house. They live for a while but eventually a serious winter gets em in the end. Ditto for avocados.....though I understand there are a few more cold tolerant avocado varieties, w...

re: My Dad has Decided to Retire Abroad... Narrowing Down Beach Places - hungryone
My suggestion is for him to do several extended visits in different places if he’s only ever lived in small town LA.....because if he wants the beach/boat lifestyle, he may be more comfortable in south FL. No language barrier, quality health care, easier access to 98 y o mother.... He could buy...

[quote]it'd be great to catch up, but I'm not staying in Sacramento, Oakland, or downtown San Fran on my few days off of work . [/quote] Nowhere did I suggest such a thing.

re: Aunt/Uncle Cancelled Thanksgiving: Now What? - hungryone
If your airfare is still valid, why not just travel to that Cali location and stay in a hotel or AirBnB? Surely you can find interesting things to do, even if you're not spending time with them. Besides, some other family members might be willing to meet/hang out with you after the exclusive main ...

If you don't already have a really good blender, you might consider getting one. Ninja, reconditioned Blendtec or Vitamix.... Full fat greek yogurt has lots of protein & good texture; it can carry other flavors, savory or sweet. Banana + greek yogurt + peanut butter + cocoa powder will deliver ...
