The Art of Eating Snack Foods

Are you sure this wasn't your parents trickery, on a young kid, to get you to eat your veggies?

Nice rhyme from Nash!

I tried to hone my CS skills by learning to pick up single rice grains. Needless to say, my patients ran out after about 10 minutes.

Food for a family.

Soups can be heated for individual portions very easy. Cut raw veggies and dips, sandwich cold cuts, assorted cheeses, desserts like brownies, cookies etc keep well.

Need help- chicken breasts

Thighs are best, but for breast meat the best results will be with skin on and try a marinade with olive oil. Use a probe thermometer and remember that the internal temp will rise between 5 and 10 degrees when you let it rest for 15 minutes after cooking.

Never heard of this, is it something your parents made often? Is it like swimming in honey or just a drizzle?

Awesome burgers: new thread

The burger is huge, I always eat half and take the rest home, can't imagine eating 2.

I had hopes for this thread.

How many different appetizers should I serve for a party of 40 for 4 hours?

5 with drinks will be good for the 4 hours.

Favorite U.S. cities (other than Chicago) for a 3 day weekend? Food is #1 priority.... [moved from Chicago board]

Not if you get a tail wind which is very common in the summer.

Portland would be a great choice.

Almond milk is even more of a scam than we thought

Belle Isle Seafood

It's a great place and the food is always fresh. One time I went later in the evening and ordered smelts, they cooked up all that were left in the case for me, it was a huge meal.

Favorite dishes in which olive oil shines?

I like to drizzle fresh EVOO over a pasta dish just before it's served. The fresh taste really lifts the entree. Also in the summer, over ripe sliced tomatoes, handmade fresh mozz and basil.

If the EVOO is fruity, like some from Spain, then maybe a dessert, otherwise no.

Costco Food Finds - 3rd Quarter 2015

Just tried some Richard's NY Extra Sharp Cheddar, only aged 12 months, but has the characteristics of a well aged Vermont Cheddar. Under $4.00 per pound, pretty good value I'd say.

Please tell me why one would prefer one of vanilla extract, whole bean or paste.

Depends of the application, in some cases you may want to see the seeds and others not. No matter what type you prefer, use a quality product.

Too much work to smash out the air in ice cream, cuts into my shoveling it in time.

It may be made fresh daily, but served a day old.

Reminds me of when I eat old school Life Savers, I always was tempted to open the other end and get that last orange, my favorite flavor, one at the bottom of the row.

Then there's animal crackers, I like to systematically dismember limbs, saving the heads for last, as I ate my way through the single serving box.

Clambake North Shore.

Woodman's would be the best as they do cater clam bakes for groups.

Small Fried Clams

Yes, PL does have the upper hand if you wish to sit inside. I do like the old school vibe.

Boston Public Market is here

I hope you're right and they stick to their plan, I like the idea of offering produce and items that are NOT just prepared foods. And please, no CORPORATE CHAINS!

Looks like you are a COM fan. They do have an outstanding burger.

RF's, I also like them, could be the value play.

I like to 'hunt for the treasure' that meaning, finding a real outstanding specimen for humble dollars.

I hope this doesn't turn into a high priced tourist destination. I'm a loyal fan of HayMarket.
