re: Did some dirty rice and petit pois today - hungryone
I love petits pois in a roux, or baby green limas done the same way. But your pics make it seem like you're cooking in the bottom of a 55-gallon drum....exactly how big was it? LOL. Next time you cook 'em, try dropping a few dried shrimp into the pot for a great savory seafood back note....

re: Bathroom paint issues - hungryone
9 years is a long time to expect a painted finish in a bathroom to hold up. You may be seeing surface condensation gathering on the paint and causing uneven appearance due to mold or dust collecting on the damp surfaces. It's high time to repaint, using an eggshell or satin paint with a decent mol...

re: Business travelers: What are your company’s travel budgeting looking like post-Covid? - hungryone
I don’t see business travel returning in the same way—and especially not if your company’s sales force is actually GOOD at online meetings/communication. You can’t simply handle a zoom meeting like an in person appointment, and if your workforce isn’t adapting to best exploit the digital meeting pl...

re: slab table: finish and epoxy questions - hungryone
I dislike shiny wood finishes, and I really dislike epoxy on nice wood. If you’re taking the time to make a nice table, allow the wood to be wood. Look at penetrating oil finishes like linseed oil and beeswax. Danish oil finishes are gorgeous, feel great under your hands, and are durable. I have...

re: Hummingbird Plants - hungryone
They love the LA native tangerine crossvine, aka trumpet vine. It is a large, woody climber, so you need a tall trellis, large pergola, or other big structure to support it. In the wild, it will run 30’ plus....

re: Loaded Potato Casserole or other Side for 20? - hungryone
Steak is heavy and filling. A lighter side is appreciated by some. It’s easy to roast a whole mess of vegetables on sheet pans in the oven. Carrots, parsnips, broccoli, cauliflower: cut all into similar sized chunks, toss with olive oil, sprinkle with lemon pepper. Roast at 400 until tender and...

re: Favorite Cajun home makes - hungryone
I grew up on grits cakes, but we didn’t call them that. They were just fried leftover grits....my memere and daddy would pour leftover grits into a loaf pan and refrigerate. When the grits have set up firm, you can slice them and reheat with a quick sizzle in a skillet. Usually it was in a little...

re: Gar Boulletes/Greards (sp?) - hungryone
Boulette is just French for ball. Not fancy, just a different language. Cajun French speakers are among the least “fancy” people you can imagine. I’m all for using LA French as much as possible........but chacun a son goût....

re: Need to put a weather door on my dog house - hungryone
Corrugated cardboard is a surprisingly good insulator., if your dog doesn’t like to chew. I repurposed a dogloo type house for a pair of yard cats, and I completely covered the opening with several thicknesses of cardboard, sealing it tight against the house, then cut a small cat sized porthole at ...

re: Starting a Sourdough- (Update with pics) - hungryone
Seeded sourdough is my fave. I usually go with a mix of sunflower, flax, and sesame, toasted and soaked before folding into the dough. Made a batch of seeded baguettes earlier this week--they were mostly commercial yeast spiked with some unfed SD starter for flavor....

re: Please, for the sake of your neighbors and decent trees, don’t top your Crape Myrtle - hungryone
No, it doesn't make it flower more. It leads to a tree with poor structure, bad shape, etc. If you want a shrub, plant a shrub. Or cut down the crape myrtle and plant something that will mature into the size you want. I've got fairly young natchez white CMs, and I am looking forward to the d...
