A guy walks into the movie theater with his own sandwich...

Every time I read the heading . A guy walks into ....... All I can think of is a Rodney Dangerfield one liner and what he would he say . LOL .

Is it okay to ask guests at a suprise party to pay to attend?

Sounds like a bunch of freeloaders . What do you get for your $15.00 ? If you can't afford to throw a party . Work more or put it on your credit card . Even asking for donations is lame . And the family slides for free . What kind of moochers are they . One word . CANCEL .

Your favorite pub or restaurant . Would you mention to the manager that the restrooms are getting a little dirty ?

A favorite brewery I visit frequently I started to notice the bathrooms are getting a little dirty . Should I just blurt it out to the manager . Email , or forget about it . This is a new business . I really like this place and have become a member .

What food or snacks do you have hidden ?

LOL . This reminds me of my sister . Chocolate and cookies . Uh , forget it you will get a little . She's not selfish whatsoever but when it comes to chocolate or cookies , a different story . I don't have the sweet tooth she does , but my nephew sure has it . I made truffles for Christmas and he gave each person just one and stashed them away . There was a bit of stink about it . I had to laugh .

What to do with a large piece of pork skin ?

I have a nice piece after trimming my pork shoulder which I will put in the smoker . I hate for it to go to waste . How do you make crackling , or chicharones , or other ? What would you make with it ?

Saffron . What should I make ?

All of your comments sound great . I am going to order some saffron from Spice Ace in S.F . I like the saffron pasta idea ,also the aubergine with saffron yoghurt . I can't get paella out of my head . Thinking of rabbit as a ingredient . I do need the Bomba rice . I am going to start searching for recipes . I will be cooking it over a open fire. Thanks

Thicken sauce for shrimp scampi?

I would add a little cold butter to the sauce at the end of cooking . I think using cornstarch or flour would make it to gummy . Even a small amount of it . Just my opinion .

What food or snacks do you have hidden ?

You know the ones that you keep for yourself . If you leave them out in the open they will be gone before you know it . This also applies to beverages . Hands off . I have to start hiding my coffee from my neighbor who is a best friend . Got any extra coffee ? Just buy your own .

Saffron . What should I make ?

After watching PBS the Spice Trail . I am really enthused to search out this la Mancha saffron or comparable . Sounds like there are a bunch of fakes on the market . I have used saffron a couple times and they were probably fakes . I am ready to go big . Where to buy and what should I make ? Thanks .

When do you just toss it?

After it's gone into limbo in the freezer . Sometimes they don't make it into the garbage . There's always a second chance I might make it later on .

Can't stand the heat: your ideas for preparing meals without adding heat to the kitchen

Being in the Pacific Northwest what a great time to be outdoors . I would grill and kick back outside . Set the table . Make it fancy . Invite friends and family . I know were in the drought but when you got lemons make lemonade . It will be winter before you know it . Enjoy .

All those so called cheap beers are on the list . I doubt the price will go up . That 's not going to help sales . And I doubt Hamm's will be anymore popular .

list your favorite kitchen gadgets

I wouldn't call it my favorite . But having the proper fire extinguisher in your kitchen will be your favorite if you ever have to use it . I hope everyone has one .

Cooking tips?

Relax with a glass of wine when cooking .

When to get lunch/a snack on this trip?

I would eat before you go . Chill , and have a cocktail in the airport bar with a snack before departing. Sounds like your on vacation . Cheers .
