Meyer lemons

We have two meyer lemons that we grew with our own small plant.
They are sooo cute.
Anyway, what's the best way to use the juice, zest, etc. to feature the lemon?

Pepper oil on hands

I sliced some green banana peppers tonight that were hotter than I expected.
I've washed my hands numerous times but there is still hot oil remnants.
I just tried taking out my contacts. Ouch!
Any suggestions?

scorched tomato sauce

We made a tomato sauce tonight with fresh home grown peppers, oregano and basil from the garden, and canned San Marzano tomatoes.

In the cooking process, on our crappy electric flat stove top (please Santa bring me a gas stove), we basically scorched the peppers that were on the bottom of pan, and some burned bits made it into the sauce.

So, the flavor is less like an italian marinara sauce, and more like a smoky pablano (not hot) tomato sauce. Obviously not what we were expecting. A bit odd.

Any suggestions for mellowing out the smoky flavor?

Any suggestions for use?

breakfast in Hickory, NC

WH is probably going to be it. However, Granny's Country Kitchen looks like a winner.....food probably not as consistent as Waffle House.

No reservations

I recently sat at the bar by myself at Ma Peche.
Easy and not crowded.
I wish I could have those pork buns right now!

4 hours in Atlanta

What about Empire State South. I can imagine hanging there for a few hours. Try the cocktails, the veg, the jars, play some bocce ball...

Well why would you want to sit in one spot for 4 hours. Go to Decatur and hit a bunch of spots. Brickstore, Leon's, Cakes and Ale, etc.

So for example before the soufflé challenge they are told how to make it and have a basic recipe at their disposal?

Atlanta activity?

Has nobody posted on Atlanta since Aug 1 or is something wrong with my Atlanta page?
Seems odd.

Cheap Eats in Chandler/Mesa & Vincinity

Heading to Mesa this week for a family event. Any worthy new additions to Mesa? Mexican, or local places? On the cheaper side is good.

Great 24 hours

Well, I just spent a great 24 hours in ATL (on the island of Decatur).
Arrived and bought beer at Ale Yeah and falafel wrap at Lawrence's.
Later oysters, cocktails, and a few other snacks at Kimball House.
Then more to eat at Cakes and Ale. Better this time than I had remembered.
In the morning coffee and granola bar at Dancing Goat.
Lunch at Sobban Korean southern diner. Fantastic!!
Outstanding really! Thanks for a great visit.

I'm from out of town but have a 40th birthday celebration coming up in the city.
Quick search has found Craigie on Main, No. 9 Park, Deuxave, Bergamot

I went to L'Espalier a long time ago but that's over the budget I think.

I guess fun with cool vibe is better than stuffy and too fancy.
