How do you split the bill and tip evenly?

Yah, I once went out with a group, there 3 couples in total, and one person wanted to generate a spreadsheet and crossfoot it to come up with the actual cost with the items each individual ordered. I mean, I'd like to pay the check before the next century.

Pulled Chicken BBQ sandwiches on Hawaiian Sweet Roll

Those hawaiian sweet rolls are generally on the small, slider size, side. I say about a 2 to 4 ounces of chicken per sandwich.

Raw Leg of Lamb Left Out Overnight

If it was frozen solid, after 12 hours it probably was just about thawed on the inside and still cold.

The Egg -- Why Is It On Top of Everything?

Also, in addition to being readily available in most commercial kitchens, eggs are still somewhat low cost. I still the trend in the US might taper off and go the way of braised short ribs and crispy brussel sprout leaves.

The one thing I'm glad for is that after many years of the egg getting a bad wrap, health wise, it has been vindicated.

Maybe we'll see the egg delicately placed on top of a Prime Steak in high end chophouses.

Or has it all ready happened.

Did the egg really go well with the blue cheese?

The Egg -- Why Is It On Top of Everything?

Not sure I'd like a runny egg on a baked pot. I do like lots of butter, sour cream and tons bacon bits.

I must say, they all look great. i'm just so glad the egg, which has been bashed as bad for you, is back and good for us.

New England and I'm Italian. I like to think I'm an adventurist when it comes to all things chow, maybe I'm just an old curmudgeon!

So far we're the minority, I do think it's a trend, ala kale, brussel sprout leaves etc.

The Egg -- Why Is It On Top of Everything?

I'm OK with a sliced hard cooked egg on ramen and sometimes like a fritatta for dinner, but I do agree i like egg for breakfast the most.

Yah, I'm not an egg on the burger guy for the same reason, I'd be wearing it all over me and probably get it all over the person next to me as well.

Egg on Kimchee, does that really go together? Sounds a bit strange where you get the classic tang with the kimchee and the egg.

Oh I agree, eggs are a great source of protein and have always been affordable. I guess i may be a bit old school.

The Egg -- Why Is It On Top of Everything?

Exactly, I see a lot of chefs adding an egg on top of sandwiches and entree's much like a fad or hip thing to do.

Yah, the edges of a overly fried egg do taste like plastic. What about pizza?

I guess here in the US it's like a hip thing to get. Actually a poached egg on friese is very French.

air travel with sushi

Bringing food on board is OK, keeping it fresh is another issue. I would focus on sashimi, it may travel the best. I would bring an empty container, get on board the plane and ask the flight attendant for some ice. Place the, hopefully wrapped, sashimi in the container with the ice.

The Egg -- Why Is It On Top of Everything?

OK, I love eggs, fried, hard boiled, scrambled, in a carbonara yum! etc.

Lately, I'm seeing more food items with an egg on top. Burgers nothing new, BBQ ok i guess, salads again OK, grilled cheese sandwiches, pizza... yes even pizza, really!!!

Have we gotten out of control??

How about you, do you like a runny egg over your favorite sandwich or entree or not.

For me, I think some applications of the egg placement are a bit much. like pizza.

Looking for Sunday brunch - Lowell, Andover, Chelmsord, Dracut area

The Chateau in Andover has OK Italian and can handle your group and you'll have enough room to roam around. Also, check the Voc Tech High School in Lawrence on the Andover line, They had a very good culinary program and serve lunch daily. Just up the road in Salem, NH is the Tuscan Market, my first choice, very good and can also handle your group if you lean towards the low head count side.

Limoncello curd ideas needed

Make a lemon mousse. I would not make a curd as the kick will be cooked out.

Tips and tricks for new basement freezer!

Designate a shelf for different items, say one shelf for beef, another for poultry etc. Only stock high value items. Great idea to invest in a food saver system. Remember to label and date everything, it will help in the rotation.
