Need help with dining choices Vegas next week

Everytime we go to Vegas, we have to go to Sushi Roku. It is always fabulous and we are hooked on the tempura lobster they have. They do a tasting menu that is out of this world! It is my all time favorite restaurant!

If you can take a cab and are looking for steak, you have to try Del Friscos! They have the best ribeyes there. The appetizer of shrimp and crabcake is delicious too. Service is fabulous.

What are your favorite crackers?

I have recently become addicted to the Raincoast Crisps in the rosemary and raisin flavor. I actually like the Trader Joe's version better, but I don't get to Trader Joe's often enough to satisfy my craving. They are so good with some herb cheese spread. My hubby loves the black pepper water crackers from Carr.

Toasted pimento cheese sandwiches are a southern staple. Just fix them like a regular grilled cheese, just subbing the pimento cheese. I love them, especially with some homemade tomato soup! I hope you like them!

What was your favourite childhood concoction, which you now think is disgusting?

As a child our babysitter ould fix me a vienna sausage (think little sausages in a can) on soft white bread with plain yellow mustard. I thought they were just heavenly. I also liked to eat the canned breakfast sausage over toast. I couldn't imagine eating that now. also loved it when my mom had leftover baked potatoes that I could fix for lunch. I would take all the skin off and mash the potato with Heinz 57 sauce and butter. Then I would sprinkle bacon bits and garlic salt on it and eat it.

Need recipe from Gourmet or Bon Appetit between 1974 to 1979 [moved from General Topics]

I found this recipe for orange oatmeal bread. Maybe you could adapt it for use in the tennis ball containers. You could probably look up other recipes that are made in cans to get a basic idea of the length of time to bake.

Orange Oatmeal Bread

1 orange
2 tablespoons plus 3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup rolled oats
2 eggs
2 tablespoons softened or melted butter
2/3 cup warm water (105-115 degrees)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Grate the orange rind into a bowl. Cut out as much of the meat of the orange as you can and add it to the bowl. Also squeeze as much juice out of the orange as you can and add it into the bowl. Sprinkle the orange with the 2 tablespoons of sugar and set aside.
In a large bowl combine flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Stir in the oats.
In a seperate bowl, combine eggs, butter, warm water, and orange mixture. Blend the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients.
Pour the batter into one large or two small greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 for approximately 35 minutes for small loaves or 50 minutes for large loaves, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
Remove the loaves from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before attempting to remove from the loaf pans.

The pulled pig sandwich served with coleslaw and baked beans is pretty good. I also remember the quesadilla with chicken and pineapple salsa was decent. My kids love the twisted mac and cheese w/grilled chicken.
