We like to use them with a louie-type sauce for salads and sandwiches - pretty darn good.

It seems to have calmed down -- still a mystery why it happened to begin with and went on for about 1/2 hr.

After a second or two, the page disappears - blank screen. I've tried reloading page, and the same thing happens for up to I don't know how many times - 8, 10? It's amazing I got here to post this.

Tri Tip - any simple salt and pepper folk?

Salt and pepper and atop a bed of thick-sliced onions work for us - it doesn't take long.

Best single-serving frozen pizza?

We like CPK's thin crust -- is there something for a solo eater that's not too gloppy or over-laden?

Re-heating take-out

Thanks for all the helpful responses. To experiment I reheated the beans with the cardboard top and the rice in a ramekin with foil at 300 for about 20 mins. Came out perfectly and I didn't burn the house down.

Re-heating take-out

No, not on broil -- tonight it's rice and beans from a fave resto packed as described -- was going to re-heat at 325-ish and didn't want the cardboard tops to go up in flames!

Re-heating take-out

If the food comes in foil boxes (6x8") with a cardboard tops -- would you re-heat as is or swap out the tops w/ foil for safety's sake?

Southern Cafe - Oakland - anyone?

Thanks! Found that thread after I posted. Wondering if slow service and flavorless chicken problems have been resolved -- and of course how the oxtails were.

View Board List

I am using a borrowed laptop which prob hasn't been used for awhile. Today the VBL dropped down, I closed it and clicked on Chowhound at the top next to Videos and the page came back up without the VBL. Problem solved, I guess.

New Woey Loy Goey Restaurant -- amazing lobster with Cantonese (black bean / ginger) sauce [San Francisco]

For the lobster in black bean sauce, try the old timey Grant Av restaurants -- Imperial Palace (still around?), Four Seas, Empress of China, Far East Cafe...haven't been but worth a phone call for you.
