CapeCodGuy need your help!

Heading down to the Cape for the Cape Vacation. We can only spend two days. We are broke. The kids love the Cape . Marathon Seafood was sold. My kids love the fish platter we got there. The reviews of the new place are not good. Could you please tell me the next best place to go?

Marathon Seafood sold and now bad reviews???

I have been going to Marathon Seafood since it was a Ho-Joe's . Teddy and his family sold it again. This time it is final. The new owners have done some nice things but, the price went way up and the quality, and, size went way down. My family can only take a two day vacation this year. Who has the best fried seafood? In the Mid Cape area?

Heinz 57 Sauce

We got it at Market Basket all the time. We only use about 4 per year on average. A 1 sauce is a good replacement.

ISO Plastic drink cups and covers

I have seen them at BJ'S. I think they are SOLO brand.

H-Mart Burlington ?

I have been there a few times. I do have a question. Do you hounds trust the produce, meat, fish and other fresh items they sell? Some of it looks very good but, some of it looks and smells bad.

How do you cook a grey steak medium rare?

Like I say to my wife. Why, would I make something nice like this for them? They would be more excited to get a frozen pizza or a fast food burger on their plate?

Does shelf stable pre- cooked bacon go bad????

Does it or can it go bad if unopened? Just found a pack over one year use by date. Can I use it or not. I looks fine. No slime or icky things growing on it. The only reason I ask is because I salt and smoke fish and meat and they are good for more than a year.

Is anyone going to boycott Market Basket?

Yes they would but, the former management team was very fair to the workers that allowed them to be successful They were happy, the management was happy win, win. Remember, unless you are running a one man show, you need to treat the people that got you there with a bit of respect The new team is only looking for cash in their pockets. Everyone knows that. Hopefully the new team will take the buyout offer.

Do you think this Kielbasa recipe will work?

I was thinking pineapple for a touch of sweetness and, pork and pineapple usually go well together.

Do you think this Kielbasa recipe will work?

I am not a big fan of Kielbasa unless it is hand made. It was on sale for a wicked low price so, we got a 1.25 l.b. link.
This is what I am thinking???

Thin sliced for all of the following.

Kielbasa
Onions
Potatoes
Green Pepper
Pineapple (add at the end)

Make it camp style, in a cast iron pan, Sauté all of it till it gets a bit of brown crust then add pineapple.

Plate it with rice and green beans.

Do you think these items will work well together?

Will also add basic spices.

The Best, East Cosat, Cold Water, Or P.E.I. Mussel Recipe You Have Had??

I have my favorites but, what do the rest of you like?

Boston to Cape

Get the seafood pie.

Ken's refrigerated Creamy Italian Dressing.

Does anyone know where you can buy Ken's refrigerated Creamy Italian Dressing? I could get it at BJ'S and Costco years ago but, they no longer carry it.

old oil in a cast iron pan

Those ideas sound very good. I was thinking about putting the pan in our back yard hard wood fire pit upside down. If I do that, will it ruin the pan?

old oil in a cast iron pan

To make a long story short... I found a cast Iron pan in the garage that was used to fry chicken in about five months ago. The oil, about two inches, turned into a cross between soft rubber, Jell-O and, pine tar. This new substance will not come off even with boiling hot water. I got some of it on my hand and the only thing that would take it off was Lava soap. This pan is over 100 years old and, I would like to save it. Have any of you home cooks ever seen anything like this happen? If so, how can I clean it?

Muddy-tasting mussels

Keep in mind, this is the reproductive time of the year for mussels. The old tale of never eat shelfish in months with an R might apply.

When to season and salt a Rib Roast?

This is why I asked. I was hoping that I could get a reply from someone that has cooked a good number of Rib Roasts. At $ 8.00 a pound plus I am looking for the right thing to do.

When to season and salt a Rib Roast?

I have read countless ways to salt and season a beef rib roast. I have not made many of them over the years because of the cost. I will be using the high heat, turn off the oven method for cooking. Am I better off seasoning and salting right before cooking or doing it in advance?

Thank you kindly in advance. Joe.

Looking to stock the freezer with frozen Trader Joe's items.

With the holiday rush upon us, I am looking to get some frozen items from Trader Joe's to make life easy on us over the next two weeks. I am looking for three frozen dinner options and three frozen desert items. In your opinion, what is the best of the best for the six choices. We are looking for pop in the oven and enjoy items. Any ideas?

Question for candy makers???

Hello all, I am making Nutter Butter Balls for my son's birthday. They are on the line of Buck Eyes. My question is, the chocolate coating on the outside. I have a block of good Swiss dark chocolate. Aside from tempering it, is there another way to use it as a coating? My mother put bees' wax in the melted chocolate when we were kids. I can not temper it because i do not have a candy thermometer. Any ideas?

Help...need ideas for one or two bite appetizers for Christmas Party

I always get compliments over meat or vegetable calzone. They are good hot, warm or, room temperature. I usually do spinach, broccoli and, cheese for the veg one and Italian cold cuts with cheese for the meat.
