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.

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!

How do you clean an "empty" peanut butter jar?

I don't think I could come up with any better ideas than yours!

I'd love PASTA PRIMAVERA!

I think maybe June for pickled vegies would be nice.

What to Drink with Shrimp and Grits

I'm from the south too. Pinot Grigio and/or offer simple mixed cocktails - personally I like Captain Morgan's and coke.

You can offer iced tea too but I personally don't drink sweetened tea. Just regular ice tea with a slice of lemon.

Good salad to precede clam linguine

You have a lot of suggestions here. I would go with a mixed salad - with mushrooms, tomatoes, thinly sliced carrots, thinly sliced cucumber, radishes, etc. - the basic mixed salad. I'd go with a balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and freshly chopped herbs dressing (and maybe some lemon). And do make some home made croutons, Sounds delicious to mw.

I'm sorry you don't like what I ordered, but keep your thoughts to yourself

What business is it of your's if they order the hard boiled egg? You're not eating it. There's no need to comment on it.

I never order steak in a restaurant either - I prefer seafood. But I have a good friend who loves the Texas Roadhouse - he always orders steak in most of the restaurants we go to. So when we go to the Texas Roadhouse I'll order the petite filet with sauteed mushrooms, a loaded baked potato and salad and it IS pretty damn good! And reasonable too.

Pork and Shrimp Hamburgers - How would you do it?

I love shrimp burgers! There's a drive in here in NC in Morehead City named El's that has been in business for over 45 years - they make the best I've ever had!

Single Men Who Cook

My father was a business executive - very successful. When he got to his 50s he was traveling quite frequently. He stilled loved to cook. His barbeque chicken was the best I've ever had - as were other things he cooked. Your "analogy" is skewed.

Don't know where you live suzigirl but if you do ever come across one and want a casual meal - it's great. Love their food - their bacon, egg and cheese breakfast biscuits are great, salads very good, chicken fabulous and sides (fries, dirty rice and cajun beans) very good. I think it must be a southern chain.
