FRESH CORN SIDE DISHES! Home Cooking Dish of the Month (August 2015)

I've been making this corn, tomato tortellini salad for years. It's a one dish summer meal. The prosciutto adds a very nice flavor. Cherry toms & basil from our garden.

Best Way to Remove Korean Hot Oil Stains?

I've had good luck treating oil stains with blue Dawn dish soap. I recently got a red meatball sauce stain out of a pair of white linen pants using a Carbona stain remover (there are different formulas for different stains) along with some Oxy Clean. Lestoil removed a large boat motor oil stain from my husband's polo shirt, but it has a very strong odor and I had to wash the shirt several times to get the smell out.

Food you cook out of love

The ubiquitous green bean casserole. It must appear at every family potluck. I cannot bring myself to eat it but at least it's not labor intensive...

Pack my "picnic basket" - BBQing shellfish seaside - Tips & Help needed.

I'm on the east coast, so our shellfish might be a bit different. We cook soft shell clams (steamers) in heavy duty foil packets with beer or white wine poured in. After they're steamed open, we poke a hole in the bottom of each packet to drain the liquid into bowls for dipping the clams after removing the membrane around the necks. Then dip in melted butter.

If I did mussels, I'd use white wine, compound garlic herb butter.

If you can get some nice big shell-on shrimp, marinate using a zip lock bag. Bring wooden skewers in another soaking in water. Skewer shrimps and cook shell on. One unexpected combo we were served once was a sesame teriyaki marinade and a dip into melted butter!

Maybe an orzo or brown rice salad?

Those grilled peaches sound brilliant.

Popsicles: bite or suck?

Never liked them, except for fudgesicles. Suck, then bite.

Food for a full day of boating

Our favorite beach/boat food is muffuletta sandwiches. Best made ahead, hearty and tasty. Cut into serving sized pieces, reassemble, wrap in foil and into ziplock bags on ice. Potato chips and cut up watermelon.

How many lobster tails are usually needed for a lobster roll?

I always remove the rubber bands before cooking because I hate the taste they impart to the homard.

Looking for good place to dance/hear music near Chatham, moderate price

The Barley Neck Inn in Orleans has live music on the weekends, I believe. On their website under "Tonight's Specials" at the bottom of the page they have free live entertainment advertised this Friday and Saturday. You could check with them about next weekend. Their food is good and not too pricey. You would probably want reservations.

What do y'all do with dried pasta odds and ends?

I cook the whole shebang, freeze what we don't use in a ziplock bag. Thaw, reheat in the microwave with new or leftover sauce.

Norway Restaurant suggestions needed

Our second night at the Walaker we decided to save money and not eat there. We picked up a roasted chicken and some deli potato salad and had a picnic on the lawn outside of our room. If you drink wine or booze, bring it with you if you can or shop duty free before entering Norway proper.

We travelled with a corkscrew, cutting board, knives, forks and paper plates. We palmed packages of condiments wherever we found them. Meals were not memorable but the beauty of the landscape will fill your heart with joy. We bought deli meat, cheese and rolls. Ate sandwiches at lookout points.

Had terrific breakfasts wherever we stayed overnight. Trondheim is a university town - you'll have no trouble finding a decent meal there. Alesund was beautiful. We had a wonderful lunch at a seafood restaurant on the water but I can't help you with the name.

Take some granola bars. Be happy with hotdogs and sandwiches. It's a trip of a lifetime. Good luck!.

Don't pass up a hotdog at a petrol stop, and don't let your tank dip below half empty.

Mucho Manchego!

Would it freeze well?? Could you grate it and freeze for gratin, quiche, or fondue?? Who knows this?

Side dish help?

Caesar salad. Chopped romaine, purchased croutons, Maries (refrigerated) Caesar dressing, toss with freshly squeezed juice from a lemon (watch out for seeds) , ground black pepper and fresh Parm cheese. It's a hit with young and old alike.
