marriot didn't create roy rogers, they bought them, and then mismanaged them and left roy's a shadow of what it was. on a happy note, roy's is starting to open new restaurants.

I plead temporary insanity, but I still want to sue......

and it just gets better... there's a good chance that, if the crabcake was made with "jumbo lump", those lumps were actually an amalgamation of a raw crab slurry an cooked crab flakes extruded into a mold and formed into those jumbo lumps.

phillips has their own patent for the molded lumps

food worth eating near U of M medical Center, baltimore md

ok, this may sound weird, but, the cafeteria in the hospital has good soup and fantastic mac and cheese...just saying...

the womens industrial kitchen on charles st (inside the womens industrial exchange) has some old-fashioned dishes- chicken salad, chicken pot pie, meatloaf, tomato aspic...really tasty. http://womansindustrialexchange.org/ and
http://womansindustrialkitchen.com/menu.html

heidi's deli on eutaw street, an easy walk from the hospital, has some wonderful sandwiches. i especially like the chicken salad on sour dough.

Upscale in Baltimore with allergies

fork and wrench on boston st - i like the skirt steak and the salumi board
http://www.theforkandwrench.com/

maggies farm - a little north of downtown
http://www.maggiesfarmmd.com/
love the charcuterie and heirloom pork chop

herb and soul - a little bit outside of the city and they're working on a new menu- great fisherman's stew and short ribs
http://www.herbandsoul.net/

live2eat - 1444 light st, federal hill- most convenient to inner harbor- but the stuffies are good as is the tomato soup with grilled cheese and the berkshire pork- wasn't too crazy about the cookies.

menus for all the above change according to availability and season. hope this helps.

i apologize for the disjointed quality, but, long day, mentally fried. :)

Standards of USA Beef vs The World

if you're referring to the clayton's organic beef that shoprite sells, it is NOT grass finished. "Clayton Organic cattle are sustainable, and humanely raised beef. Our beef comes from animals that are free-range and grass fed in its’ early days, then corn/grain-finished for 100 days."

Current Tone on the Boards

first off, veggo, thank you for using "couldn't" for the constipated 80%. too many people are incorrectly using "could" for "give a shit, give a rat's ass, care less," etc.

and, now, to bring it back to a food-related post, i'd like to recommend prunes, pears and flax seeds, to those 80 percent suffering from constipation. these foods have a gentle, laxative effect.

Trader Joe's Yay/Nay - February 2014! [OLD]

there are issues with a lot of the frozen foods. the weather has caused delays in deliveries and some of the products on these trucks have been thawing and re-freezing. the stores have no way of knowing this until someone buys the product and informs them.

Old Chicken, eat or toss?

i don't see any mention in my association's bylaws forbidding fermenting chickens in the yard. not picking up dog poo, it's in there, but seems as though fermenting chickens are a go!

We were kicked out of a restaurant because.....

when i was a child, my parents brought along honey when we went out. my sister and i did not like pancake syrup and my mom had to have honey for her tea and for buttered toast.
i still carry a honeybear with me.
