That's interesting. At my local TJ's, the smoked trout is in a can near the smoked sardines....

So the one you got wasn't canned?

Stove Top Chicken Tips?

You could pound them so they are a thinner and will cook more evenly.

What's for Dinner #323 - The Labor Day Edition!

The gig went well, as the drummer came prepared. The birthday girl & her guests had a blast, so I'm happy :-)

There were a few trays of nibbles, but I didn't partake: wine was dinner, pretty much.

Tonight we're invited to a friend's house, where the food is always fabulous -- generally several different mains (baked fish, Indian curries, salads, etc. etc.), so I'm really looking forward to that; also seeing folks we haven't in a while.

Weather forecast for mañana is shite, so the planned cookout/potluck/'cue may not happen after all. Feh!

Enjoy your Sundays and the day off tomorrow!!!!

Campbell's Pork And Beans-- Blech!

Gosh, that sure comes as a surprise. Campbell's is such a high quality brand, generally.

In order to be defensive, there needs to be intruders. I don't follow the LA board at all, so I wouldn't know (nor do I care - not my monkey, not my circus).

Plenty of gorgeous food pics on this site, too.

It definitely made me appreciate CH more. Those forums look like the 80s called :-D

Takes all kinds, of course, and clearly there are plenty of people who like it.

Yeah, I'm having the same experience. Must be heavier on the LA board.

But none of the 9 boards I follow have seen an increase in spam. Huh. Maybe the sky ain't falling just yet.

That is truly tragic, weezie. Three Hail Bacons (at least) for penance!

They explicitly explained why they locked those threads = in order to keep all the feedback in one thread: this one.

Seems to be working swell so far, no?

What's for Dinner #323 - The Labor Day Edition!

Let's take a moment and remember the many workers in the labor movement whom we have to thank for this long weekend (or rather *weekends*, period).

Mmmkay. Off my sandbox now '-)

We went to the local shelter today to check out the kitty situation. It has been a month exactly since we had to say good-bye to our boy, and we know that there are so many out there looking for a home. It was less traumatic than I had feared, and we actually filled out an application for adoption.... just in case.

Dinner tonight will be early and simple: BLTs to honor National Bacon Day.

Also, the winery at which my band's playing tonight apparently only has cheese & crackers on their "menu", so I need to make sure to have something slightly more substantial.

Help please with first pork shoulder

For the most part, I do it all in the oven. Unless I want to smoke it first.

All depends on how motivated I am, but both versions are addictively delicious.

I should really make a pork butt again soon :-)

Yes, it's all downhill from here. Going to hell in a handbasket.

Let's bring back the "good old days".

What's for Dinner #322 - the pre-Labor Day Weekend Edition [through August 30th, 2014]

Hmm. They're not crazy expensive at the local Wegmans (factory meat, of course - don't actually know if they have organic tenderloins; I do know that they carry other organic cuts).

There is a tendency to sell them marinated in ghastly stuff, yes, but I have had no problem finding naked ones.

Crappy, shmappy. Looks and sounds like a home run, CM.

Far-away Chains on your "To Do" List

Popeye's. Wait, does 1 hour 15 min. qualify as "far-away"?

Well, far enough for me, anyway, to make the trip *just* to eat there. But ever since I learned that this is the closest Popeye's to us (as opposed to the one on 14th St. in the city, where I could never ever waste even a single meal on a chain), I have made a mental note of it.

Next time I go through H'burg, I'll be able to hand in my Popeye's virgin card :-)

I've had both In & Out burgers as well as Shake Shack, but the I&O was over a decade ago, so I can't remember if it was "all that".

Shake Shack burgers are tasty (tho also not worth traveling for).

National Bacon Day? Excellent. We have plans for BLTs at casa lingua pre-gig!!

Apparently, all the winery that we're playing tonight has to offer is cheese and crackers. Feh.

Now everybody: "She is borderline gifted".

Can we turn this into a canon? That would be swell.

As I mentioned further upthread (or downthread), we NEVER had two spaces after a period in Germany:

http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/9870....

When I moved to your interesting country over a decade ago, I learned to make two spaces (I mean... really. It's not rocket surgery).

When the second space was considered redundant and was officially abandoned a few years ago, I stopped doing it.

But I am borderline gifted. Yeah, that must be it.
