here is a link to a list of farms that offer raw milk for "pet" consumption per nc law. some have cow shares, others have group memberships and others sell directly to the public.

you're absolutely correct! my "mind's eye" just automatically read potatoes. the russian delis from which i purchase salat olivier skip the chicken, though. looks like thursday's going to be a deli day for salat and kielbasa.

Steamed Crabs around Towson/Baltimore

the 2015 maryland crab season opens on april 1, so there is a small possibility of finding local crabs. it's been a cold winter, so it's going to take a while for the waters to warm up enough to bring the crabs out of hibernation.

you forgot the hard boiled eggs and cooked carrots.

Mr. & Mrs. cocktails for wedding reception

agreed that this is tehama's party, and why i responded with caipirinhas to her request for drinks.

unfortunately, i don't have any embarrassing photos, but phil does. :)

Your most cherished food memories...

it was for language, history, culture, folk dancing, singing. every saturday morning during the school year from 9 am til 1 pm. there are quite a few lithuanian saturday schools in the us, today, keeping each following generation in touch with their roots. but, they don't get lemon meringue pie! ;)

Mr. & Mrs. cocktails for wedding reception

each individual and each social group is different. i'm not judging anyone who wants to drink to excess, but, that's no reason to vilify a beverage. i've drunk multiple caipirinhas at a single event and never passed out. i've paced myself to enjoy the flavor of the drink and, if i've finished my drink too quickly, i follow with a non-alcoholic beverage. any excessive consumption of any alcoholic beverage can cause a scene such as you described at your friend's wedding, or even worse.

Mr. & Mrs. cocktails for wedding reception

but isn't it the same for all "fruity/sugary" drinks? :) another suggestion is for a kir or kir royal. i enjoy both, but prefer the tang of the caipirinha.

Have you ordered from Plated

the orechiette is enticing me to head to my favorite italian restaurant and have some for lunch this week! however, their version is with broccoli rabe instead of sage.

if you don't mind competing lime drinks, how about a Caipirinha? cacha├ža, lime and sugar. very refreshing on a hot day.

Restaurant Web-Site Fails...

it seems as though many people have forgotten how to pick up a phone and call the business. some would rather come here and have a fellow chowhounder do the deed.

Your most cherished food memories...

for a couple years, my childhood saturday mornings were filled by going to lithuanian school (i much preferred the non-school years of going to the markets with my dad). my mom would wake me up early and we'd walk about a half mile to the bus stop and catch the bus. then we'd get off and walk about another half mile to the school. the only thing that made those mornings bearable, was the coffee shop that we'd stop into before school. my mom would get a cup of coffee for herself and a slice of lemon meringue pie for me, to go. every saturday, that would be my snack at break. the best lemon meringue pie, anywhere. i'd get slices elsewhere and i still have a slice here and there, but none of them ever taste as good as that saturday morning pie from the coffee shop.

Your most cherished food memories...

gotta go get a quart of good buttermilk, tomorrow. :)

Samos in Canton

i haven't eaten at the canton location as the menu is completely different from the one in highlandtown.

Additional charges that seem unjustified that the establishment might think twice about

or, as i've seen as some places, "and pickle upon request". this keeps the pickle free for those who want it and out of the trash for those who don't.

Wat Thai Songkran Festival 2015

sorry, bmore, i don't. i just happened upon this because i'd stopped off for lunch at bangkok garden in bethesda and they had a flier in their window for this festival.

i bought a nathans flat cut corned beef for $2.99/lb, today, at shop rite.

What discontinued products do you miss?

apparantly, bird's eye new england veggies have been renamed, and, according to the birds eye website, they are available, but there are no croutons.

Birds Eye Vegetables Hi Rob, this is Candy from Birds Eye. We are still making this product, however the name has been changed to Vegetables & Shells in Garlic Butter Sauce. I would be happy to search for retailers in your area, if you would provide your zip code.
