Favorite Chicken Salad Mix-Ins?

Dried Cranberries, blueberries or raisons. Sliced matchstick crisp Granny Smith Apple or A Fuji. Walnuts or almonds and a touch of Greek Yougurt.

Parent company of Regina Pizzeria files for bankruptcy

Hey, they're dumping losing restaurants, that are not worth going to. They need to cut their losses and that's how it's done. The term bankruptcy is probably a bad term, it's more like a business re-org.

Food by the Gallon: The Water We Eat

Agree, food is going to get very expensive, more than it already is!

CA may restrict but, until this past month it's been voluntary. Also, the new enforcement appears to be weak and the fines are minimal, a total fail. If you're not sure just look at all the irrigation systems pouring water on lawns and also on the side of highways, a complete waste of H2O.

CA is way behind on this, on the NorthEast Coast, even with record winter snow fall and excellent annual rain, most towns still RESTRICT. Just to make sure the water rates are almost triple of CA, that cures a lot of waste habits.

The question is which would you rather have food or a green landscape. An easy answer for me.

Food by the Gallon: The Water We Eat

No, just don't hammer farmers or a bunch of food groups for growing food that we eat in order to survive. Look at the bigger picture.

Between Boston and Portsmouth - dinner this Sunday

Great places like Clam Box in Ipswich, probably the best clams on the coast. Causeway in Gloucester, fresh grilled and fried seafood, respectable Italian, BYOB, and very reasonable. Lobsta Land in Gloucester, great seafood and many other offerings. Lobster Pool in Rockport, killer views fresh seafood. American BBQ in Rowley. Agawam Diner in Rowley, awesome cream pies. Meloise in Amesbury, good Italian. Lots of great options in Newburyport as well. Sugar Magnoila's in Gloucester, breakfast and lunch only. Halibut Point in Gloucester, awesome chowders, great menu. Bob Lobster on Plum Island. I'd avoid Ithaki in Ipswich, it has gone over many changes over the years and the quality has gone south.

I've been to all these places.

Food by the Gallon: The Water We Eat

Edit: Instead of looking at how much water a food group, like almonds, requires, I'd like to see a study that shows how much water is used, per family, to water their lawns annually. That would be a great wake up call.

Yah, so it takes H2O to grow food, not really rocket science is it MW. Instead, have you an opinion on this, especially since you live in a drought stricken state where everyone has lush green lawns and dumb ass govnr?

Make sure the tomatoes, use Romas as they are less watery, are on the inside, keep the cheese next to the bread.

Whole Lamb at Costco

Yes, you will need to cut into primal sections or cook it whole, which I recommend.

Is it necessary to marinade a top round steak?

London Broil is excellent grilled with just S&P. Remember to cut against the grain and very thin.

Costco Food Finds - 2nd Quarter 2015

Had a great Costco experience today. A set of eye glass frames that I bought 2 years ago had a chip on the finish frame color. The person at the eye glass center had the same frame in stock, swapped the lens from my old frame, like in less than 15 minutes, and I was on my way. Awesome!

Your favorite organic brand is actually owned by a multinational food company

Not surprised at all. Not sure if multinational means much. The sign states Organic Gala Apples for 1.48 per pound. Do you really think your neighborhood apple orchard can sell them for that price. What the heck does 'responsibly grown' mean?

Take off that Fitbit. Exercise alone won’t make you lose weight.

Yah, hate the term 'diet' for me, it's a life style. Nice to rip of 47, go for it.

I've notice recently, that when posting to a Topic is does not go to the Top of the Board List. What Happened.

Have you ordered spicy hot food and then complained about it being too hot?

No, and just like asking for spicy or hot, say if I order toast 'burned' and the server asks if it's too dark, I say it's fine. Why, because I asked for it that way and I own it.

Scientific Methods Misapplied to the Evaluation of Cuisine

True, we are lured by smell, taste, sight etc. The end product does matter.

The OP mentioned, Does it matter 'What brush by DaVinci?'

Well yes, it does, imagine if he or Michelangelo used a 9 inch paint roller to create their masterpieces.

Take off that Fitbit. Exercise alone won’t make you lose weight.

For me, it's calories in vs calories out. Exercise helps me with the calories out part, but is not the sliver bullet. Have to watch the intake very carefully.

7 Myths (and Truths) About Olive Oil

I think Italy produces better quality EVOO than Spain, no comparison. In fact, Spain has Italy process a lot of it's EVOO.

A lot of Italy's premium EVOO is processed by the centrifuge method, not squeezing, which produces a better flavor.

Scientific Methods Misapplied to the Evaluation of Cuisine

OK, so the OP states the following:

'Put down the pencil, put away the paper, delete the spreadsheet and open the heart.'

Question:

Where would the artisan be who makes the cure for the Proschuiitto or the Winemaker who blends for a perfect result be without a recipe being followed?

You need science for the artisan. I'd like to also hear from the OP.
