what to do with leftover boiled chicken thighs that i find too gamey?

Marinate with lebanese seven spice powder, yoghurt, garlic and malt vinegar and crisp it up on the grill. I don't care for chicken thighs either but I eat them that way and don't notice.

Wisconsin Food in DC, MD, VA?

How about a source for fried walleye pike or lake perch, while we're at it? Anyone?

Hounds!!! Does anyone remember "La Choza?"

In 1970 the cook was still making her own tortilla chips, too. Salsa was made in a blender with canned tomatoes, I believe, some onions and some not too hot type of pepper in escabeche.

Chips, beans, shredded yellow cheese, then heated to melt. Then, guacamole and sour cream. This was in the days before nachos were a household word!

I waitressed at La Choza in the spring of 1970. Took the Evanston bus down from NU and back again on weekends, not really thinking of the neighborhood. The kitchen was about the size of my closet, but I must say that their food handling seemed safe - everything was cooked to order and went quickly. Ah, steak con rajas...
