re: UPDATE: Cajun Fire Brewing Finally Opening... - hungryone
Dumb name that screams tourist. Hope they’re successful, but the name is unconnected to anything: location, product, ownership, etc. If three gringos founded a brewery called Chinese Fire, would anyone think it a good idea?...

re: Stopped by Dons in Scott - hungryone
Boudin is already cooked when you buy it. You simply need to reheat it. I'm not sure what you think sous-vide would accomplish, besides perhaps turning the interior into a complete mush as the rice dissolves into starch soup....

re: Montreal, in summer - hungryone
[quote]I never once entered a PIN in Canada and logged over 100 transactions with both Visa and American Express over the last 24 months. [/quote] Because you've got a US card, which isn't PIN based. The PIN based chip cards require restaurant vendors to have a portable handheld so that users with...

re: Anyone else a proponent of the "Freedom lawn"? - hungryone
I do dig up the occasional clump of crabgrass and backfill the hole with a little compost. Right now, I'm enjoying the thick spread of clover. Plenty of flowers attracting plenty of bees to pollinate my citrus trees. I'll mow the clover down a couple times before the lawn really wakes up from w...

Anyone else a proponent of the "Freedom lawn"? - hungryone
I've seen quite a few threads on lawn care that were chemical intensive and weed averse. Is anyone else out there a proponent of the "freedom lawn"? Basically, you mow, and whatever survives, survives. Regular trimming acts as a selection toward grasses over other kinds of plants. I had my lawn...

Mine were late getting into the ground: planted on Sunday, but should have been in two weeks ago. I'm hand watering for a week or so, then putting down the soaker hoses & deep mulch. Need to plant some zucchini seeds ASAP....

re: Any Issues Cooking Seafood Gumbo Day Before Party? - hungryone
I don't mind a reheated seafood gumbo, but I was raised on homemade gumbos, not fancy-pants restaurant style with seafood dropped in at the last minute. (Consider your audience.) If you do cook it in advance, be sure to cool quickly & thoroughly, as seafood gumbo will spoil more easily than chic...

re: Limes in South LA - hungryone
Kaffir/makrut limes are not edible fruit, the tree is used for its fragrant leaves and zest. Key is nice, but it’s very cold sensitive. 28 degrees will damage the tree to the point of die back. Whatever variety you choose, plant in the warmest, most sheltered spot in you yard. Whereas a satsuma ...
