re: This new free texting during flights is going to end up with me being arrested - hungryone
I so agree about the bare feet. Fine to take off your shoes, but non-odiferous socks are a must. Noise is always a problem on planes, whether it is the text chime, crying children, or blabbing people who can't seem to modulate their voices. Noise cancelling headphones fix all of this stuff. ...

re: Le Crueset vs Lodge enamel dutch ovens - hungryone
LC does have that lifetime warranty, and factory seconds from the outlet stores are often available at really good prices. (While the factory stores don’t sell via website, you can call and they’ll tell you what’s on sale, etc and do phone orders, sometimes w/free shipping.) On the LC vs Staub d...

re: Rome, Florence and Venice Eats - hungryone
If you want to soak up the atmosphere at a discount, most fancy cafes on famous piazzas have an indoor stand-up bar, where coffee, etc are available at lower prices. You don’t get the use of a chair and table, but you can people watch (and use nice clean restrooms) at a steep discount. In Florence...

re: Early MSY Flight - hungryone
Random my ass. I get patted and swabbed, extra bag check, etc every damn time. My fair, blue eyed husband never gets a second look. There must be a picture of me under the heading “suspicious” in the TSA training manual. My last trip through DCA was so ridiculous, I finally sprang for precheck/g...

re: Rome, Florence and Venice Eats - hungryone
Also worth a visit is the Mercato Centrale in Florence.....beautiful food stalls selling produce, seafood, meats, poultry....and some prepared foods. Tucked into a back corner is Nerbone, a lunch stall offering delicious boiled beef tucked into a roll—the whole sandwich is dipped into the cooking j...

re: Rome, Florence and Venice Eats - hungryone
Go read up each of those cities @ Katie Parla’s website. She’s Italian American, presently lives in Rome, travels throughout Italy, published a Roman cookbook last year & is working on a southern Italian one this year. Unlike so many guidebook or tourist recs, she knows food, cares deeply about qu...

re: Leftover dark turkey meat recipe? - hungryone
I too love tetrazzini more than the plain roasted turkey. We usually do turkey gumbo, or turkey salad (the finely chopped, pasty kind that's almost the texture of pate), but I like the idea of turkey pot pie. Cooked dark meat freezes with decent results, esp if you use the defrosted meat in soup...

re: London in December - hungryone
A visit to St Paul's is great if you time it for an Evensong service. The place becomes more than a building when you hear it filled with voices. Here's the calendar: [link=(https://www.stpauls.co.uk/worship-music/worship/choral-evensong)]LINK[/link]...

re: Place to stay in Miami or Keys - hungryone
I've enjoyed the Island City House hotel....it's a compound of several historic structures, around a courtyard with a pool area. Breakfast is served in the courtyard, and many of the rooms have porches or balconies (with swings or hammocks). Some of the suites have kitchenettes or full kitchens. ...

re: London in December - hungryone
Yes--I experienced much of the same in Greenwich in May. Large group tours, monopolizing areas for endless photos. We got sick of waiting and basically shouldered our way into the midst of the group and took our own pics. Selfie sticks were everywhere, and far too many people were just taking pho...

re: My Mom Sucks at Thanksgiving - hungryone
This is the time of year when I’m glad to be Cajun. Forget dry turkey, we have turkey and andouille, then ham, and cornbread dressing with crawfish, and some veggie sides. Who says you have to have turkey and casseroles? But you better appreciate your mama.....Santa’s watching....

re: London in December - hungryone
Tower of London is really cool; multiple parts...my tip is to go at opening, and rush over to the section containing the Crown Jewels. You’ll beat the crowd, can really look/see (not easy when it’s crowded, there is a moving sidewalk to keep people from lingering), and can then make your leisurely ...

Cheap euro fares around Mardi Gras - hungryone
Just booked a RT, MSY—FCO, on British Air for $426, inclusive of all taxes/fees. If you’re trying to get OOT for Mardi Gras, fares took a big dip this week. It may cost me more for the car ferry to Palermo than for the flight to Rome, LOL....
