Fresh Worx and a Carvel taking over DosAmigos

Sausage, peppers and onions

I prick and boil the sausage then saute. Remove from pan. Add oil. Saute cubanelles and yellow onions, with a dash of pepper flakes, parsley and small amount of broth, then add in sausage. Hearty Italian bread to dip.

Do you believe in being a food snob?

I'm surprised they didn't instruct you to weigh the ingredients

Do restaurants overcharge on purpose?

Not this particular occurrence, no... but after having some pretty hefty lunch bills lately, I'll stick to good buffets with a coupon to bring the cost of dining out under control.

How high is your tolerance for messy food?

I'll read the rest of the posts after I put my 2 cents in (altho Mr BM did catch my eye). Sloppy food and I do not get along. I eat ribs with knife and fork. I'd rather go hungry than risk staining my shirt or tie. I've refused lunch time interviews so I don't risk embarrassing myself. I'm sure I've offended hosts by not indulging in their backyard BBQ - excuse me...grillfest. Sorry...but that's who I am.

Should I Take My Hat Off at a Restaurant?

I feel it's because it shows a modicum of respect for others through good manners, something many of us older people are looking to preserve.

Any memories of "poor people food" from your childhood that you still crave?

Poor? Not at the prices you pay today! I love the stuff

Affordable Sit Down Chinese Restaurant Capitol Region Greater Hartford Area

Went for dinner tonight (last night) at Great Taste and to be honest, the only thing worth raving about was the service. Bland sauce, way undercooked broccoli, tepid and tasteless chicken...still prefer Green Tea in Farmington.

1 1/2 cup Silk almond milk, 1 scoop vanilla Rightsize, 1 scoop unflavored whey protein powder, six ice cubes...blend and enjoy

Reminds me of a woman in traffic school I attended who said she wore heels when out at night because she read taller people can drink more.

I would add Green Tea in Farmington

Recipe Collections

Thank you for your response. I seem to recall Chow sponsored and posted collections of recipes, with a common theme or prime ingredient. I used to d/l them and self-publish for my own collection of cookbooks. I don't see "collections" like them any more.
