Game in the Black Hills

here i am almost two months later ready to pose the same question, but i see the dearth of answers it brought. might i inquire whether you discovered any places worth visiting during your trip to the black hills?

Best Food Markets in the Strip?

i stock up on stan's garlic. good price and usually in better shape than that from sam's or costco. roast a big batch in the oven or on the grill and then freeze it in bags for use as needed.

Fried Fish - Pittsburgh (ish)

i haven't been back to ccs since the day my husband and i watched one of the employees spray raid to control gnats that were swarming over the booths. an email to the manager brought only a reply that he would "look into it," whatever that meant.

What did your Mom always have on hand, that you NEVER do?

oh man! catalina dressing with crumbled blue cheese makes any salad, even iceburg, sing.

Best way to increase shelf life of certain things

i'm a big fan of the dubliner cheese that costco sells in large blocks. wrapping it in waxed paper and then in a ziplock bag keeps it fresh.
