What's for Dinner #330 -- The Glorious Month Edition! [through Oct 18, 2014]

Linda that is so nice of you to make all these meals for your Mom. I know you do this quite a bit but you definitely outdid yourself today!

Am I being too cheap? Splitting restaurant bill on family vacation

As a timeshare owner I know what Jules said is true - timeshares are not "free" - there is a yearly timeshare fee and a fee to switch locations.

Yes, you are being cheap and as other people have said ungracious.

Little Neck Clams

Does anyone know where I can find fresh little neck clams in Durham? I'd really appreciate it - I need about 5 1/2 dozen.

Thanks!

Menu suggestions for shrimp and grits?

Shrimp & grits is a speciality of mine. I would serve, as I always do, a simple salad with tomatoes, mushrooms, carrots, cucumbers, perhaps some yellow, orange or red peppers. A light vinaigrette dressing to dress. Maybe some homemade croutons.

With the main course add some artisan bread with sweet butter - that's all you need. Add a dessert of your choice - but I would choose something not too heavy.

Can I use this recipe using the oven and if yes what temp and how long?

I agree with Monavano - this is the way I make achiote pulled pork - cooked the same way. Have done Carolina pulled pork once with an extra pork shoulder after I made achiote pulled pork. (bought the Costco 2 pork shoulders in a pack)

100 Best Restaurants in the South

I was at Crooks a couple of months ago for their soft shell crab. Their cajun ribeye was on the menu that night and that's what my friend had. Both were excellent!

Costco Food Finds - 3rd Quarter 2014

I like their pumpkin pies. Also like their apple pies with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of the slice.

Tomato pie

The restaurant owned by this chef is in NC. They get rave reviews about their tomato pie!

Chef and the Farmer (Kinston, NC) - recent experiences?

King's doesn't have more than 1 location in Washington - I have no idea if they have one in another town. The King's in Washington has been there for over 40 years.

Chef and the Farmer (Kinston, NC) - recent experiences?

I know this is an older post but wanted to comment. I've been reading the comments and went to the restaurant's website to check it out. I live in Durham and have never been there, but my niece, who lives in Bath, NC is going there Friday with her husband for her birthday celebration.

Lulu - if I were you I'd stay at one of the B&B's in Washington, NC and drive to Kinston - a at most 40 minute drive. Stay for 2 days and have a nice weekend to explore the area and see the beautiful Pamlico River. There are several really nice, casual restaurants downtown and one a little bit less casual. You can walk Stewart Parkway right on the river downtown, enjoy the river, and walk on main street and see all the beautiful old buildings that now house restaurants and a few interesting stores.

Bath, NC is only a 20 minute drive from there. Blackbeard's home and home of the oldest church in NC. Very historic.

Here are 2 websites for beautiful B&B's

I hope you see this Lulu and consider this!

For Fun: Favorite bad versions of dishes?

Stauffers macaroni and cheese with broccoli. I heat it in microwave for 4 1/2 min, mix it up all together and add lots of freshly ground black pepper. Heat it for another 1 1/2 min.

It's really delicious! And you're getting vegies too! :)

Overlapping text

The blue print underneath the individual posts is enough for me to give up reading Chowhound. It's extremely distracting and makes reading posts a little difficult. I HOPE this is just an error and will be corrected very soon.

Mi Peru now open in Durham

Do they have shrimp ceviche or something other than talapia? Not a fan of talapia.

Rotel Velveeta Dip

I haven't made it in years but bought a can of Rotel today for this reason! Will get the cheese and take with me for my visit with family for the 4th. Love it!

If you'd like it a little spicier - some chopped pickled jalapenos are fantastic!

Angus Barn in Raleigh What to have and what to avoid

I haven't been to the Angus Barn in years - not since my Dad died. We used to go there when he was in town on business.

I always got their prime rib - fabulous - I loved it! And a salad and stuffed potato. No dessert for me but oftentimes would get some type of after dinner drink.

I'd love to go back and try it again sometime but haven't. I don't get all the bad posts you see about the place - I loved it.

Food porn as man bait

You didn't offend me Tracy - but yes, I think the whole thread is sexist both with men and women. Unfortunately I don't think some people are joking.

Dessert for a friendly "throwdown" at work... suggestions?

That chocolate peanut butter cake looks fabulous!

Sounds very much like a recipe I make from an old restaurant here. Sometimes I add a pound of shrimp to it also. It will be delicious!

Soft-shell crabs in the Triangle

I've had excellent soft shells at Crooks! Missed them last year but will make it this year!

At the end of my rope -- please help

I totally agree with cooking with your husband. It's fun and you can learn from him just by discussing what he's doing and watching. Same if you have a friend who likes to cook.

I've learned the most by watching and cooking with my Mom, Grandmother and friends - and loved it so started at a very early age. Yes, their were failures!

Ditto on the keep it simple and go from there. When you feel comfortable with what you've learned then you can go to more detailed cooking!

Thanks so much Julie! Will definitely do this! I already have a few of the ingredients - and I love any Mexican food (almost!).

The break was upstairs in the masterbath - slow spray over the 1 1/2 baths upstairs, effected the bathrooms, guest bedroom upstairs, complete ceiling in living area downstairs, a wall downstairs. New bamboo flooring in ALL of downstairs, new ceiling, new wall, paint job, new carpet in guest bedroom and new tile flooring in the master bath and guest bath upstairs. Love the new work but what a way to get it!

I was gone for 9 days - a friend was feeding my cat. I figure the leak had been going on for about 4 days.

Thanks Phreddy & Ludmilasdaughter - will definitely try it! I know you said not too much of anything - but a basic recipe as far as to how much V8, wine, etc would be great and I can go from there.

Now I'm wondering if clams are like oysters - only eat during the R months. Sorry - that's what we do in NC with our yummy oysters.

I'd love your recipe for your "just layered chicken enchilada casserole" Julie! Trying to come up with very simple things to make - have been back in my townhouse for only 1 month after 6 months in a motel - had a major plumbing break in my master bath in August while I was away - came home to a collapsed ceiling, ruined carpet, walls, floors, running water through the ceiling, etc. Was a disaster!

Now I'm back and have lots of boxes to unpack from what Disaster 1 had to get out of here - am looking for simple but yummy! And I can always make a salad to go with it to make it a balanced meal (ha!). Thanks!

Phreddy - could you do this with clams? As much as I wish I did - I'm not crazy about mussels. Love clams though!

Being from NC I know shrimp (ours are fab). Fresh water shrimp? I don't think so!

Now fresh water crabs - yes!
