Botulism outbreak linked to Ohio Church potluck

I have been wondering about the peaches that were canned by a friend with plenty of experience. They have been in my pantry for five years . Still good ? They might be good , but I will keep them until the end of time , never to open .

Botulism outbreak linked to Ohio Church potluck

There's the possibility that the cook has canned a million times before . All's it takes is the one that got away .

McDonald's back to deep frying their Apple pies!

Mcd should stop trying to be so damn healthy . I loved the fried cherry pies that would end up blistering the roof of your mouth .

Botulism outbreak linked to Ohio Church potluck

I wouldn't think so . It's sad for everyone . You go to a church function to meet up with friends and share some food and someone ends up dying from botulism . : (

How do you split the bill and tip evenly?

< I always end up putting at least $20 more than I ought to >. That seems like what always happens to myself . I usually end up holding the short end of the stick .

How do you split the bill and tip evenly?

Inspired from another post. You asked your friends, family, co workers, or other to join you for dinner. Without having separate checks do you have the others guess what their amount to be paid and throw their money on the table and say. "I had such and such with a drink I owe this much." Without coming up on the short end what do you do? You are holding the check. Just another splitting the bill question.

Anyone thought about selling their homemade dishes or pastry? Does it need any license?

Why not prepare yourself . Be completely legal in your business . Don't be a dork . Do your research and work hard for what you believe in .

When was the last time you had a REAL hot dog?

Two day ago . Garry's Snappy Dogs . Natural casing dogs made special for him that are served from his cart . I should ask him if it is a sandwich.

Williams Sonoma gift card - what would you do?

Buy someone a birthday gift . Or shop early for Christmas . I'm sure you could find something for yourself once you walk in the store otherwise .

Lithuanian Festival 2015 - Baltimore May 9 and 10

Vidute , Would love to make this festival . I was lucky enough to enjoy the only Lithuanian restaurant west of Chicago this last Saturday . I love this place . The stuffed cabbage was fantastic and the rye bread is flown in from Lithuania . http://www.mamapapalithuania.com

I let my dried beans soak too long. Are they fermented now? How bad would that be, anyway?

Forget about soaking your beans . I used to do this . The trick is to use bottled water, no salt and turn on stovetop as low as you can get . Add your salt and aromatics after two hours .

How to invite friends for dinner, where everyone pays for their own food?

" Hey on Friday we are going to so and so . Everybody is going Dutch . Would you like to join us . "

Tips to cut grocery bill

Put $150.00 cash in a envelope for each week to spend that's it. Do not go out to lunch , make it and bring it to work . Do not eat out . Drink cheaper booze . Sounds like you have a budgeting problem .

Who owns the leftovers?

Yes . Like toilet paper .

As a foodie, what do you do for lunch during the week?

I make my own lunch . It's to much trouble to be driving around and ordering lunch . This gives me more time to relax .

Mama Papa Lithuania Restaurant & Tea House in Alameda

I had dinner there last night . A wonderful place with great food and owner .
I had the stuffed cabbage rolls that were filled with rice and ground pork served on a sauce that was subtly flavored with garlic and paprika. Served on the plate also was boiled or steamed potato with a hint of dill , along with some sliced pickle .
We also had the fried rye bread . The owner Vitus said the rye bread is flown in from Lithuania and comes frozen then thawed .
The Lithuanian beer was also very good .
I am already looking forward to going back to this restaurant that has great food , atmosphere , clean , and a wonderful owner .

Complain or Shut Up?

I did tell her respectably . I was chatting with her beforehand and when I told her she smiled also . I'm sure she hated her job . And , yes I heard the restaurant is going out of business . I was not the only one to complain as it is a small town and word travels .

Complain or Shut Up?

Why would I be proud to say that ? I give praise when deserved or tell the truth . Yes , To start flat warm beer with muddy rotten oysters . And then some . I did think it was kind of funny .
