Oysters on the half shell, DTW

Thanks, all, for your suggestions. We decided that since we'll have a cocktail or two with dinner, we would stay close to home in St Clair Shores. So Waves its' going to be. Their apps menu features Oysters on the half shell, Oysters Rockefeller, and Mussels, three ways. This works for us.

Oysters on the half shell, DTW

Dinner for three this Friday. Must have stellar Oysters on the half shell as an app. When we were four, we would plow through two dozen easily and jokingly discuss ordering a third dozen. Mike's On The Water in SCS is closed for the winter, so we realize we must venture out a ways.

Your suggestions would be truly appreciated!

Will we ever see pressed corned beef again?

That sounds like comfort food to me! Yum.

Russian Imperial Stout - DTW

Eastside: I'd recommend Fairway Sav-Mor Drug Store; 10 Mile road a block west of I-94 on the south side of the street. They offer hundreds of micro brew beer choices. You could find at least a half-dozen Russian Imperial Stouts. And the ownership team always has at least one member on site to help with selection.

This family of beer drinkers loves that store!

Two small, Beef Eye of Round pieces

Well, here is what transpired last night...

Pressed Sea Salt and cracked Black Pepper into both pieces, then pan seared the meat. After getting a nice crust, I transferred the pieces to a baking pan and covered them with a can of jazzed up black beans. Baked the whole lot at 350 degrees for 50 minutes, (20 minutes uncovered--30 minutes, covered); let it rest for about five minutes then served. A bit tough in the end. But the sauce saved the taste.

Wow! What a great recipe. Thank you for sharing it, Tim.

Two small, Beef Eye of Round pieces

Hmmm. Thank you, jjjrfoodie for your suggestions. I was hoping I wouldn't have to "de-construct" the two pieces. And hoping that searing, then roasting them might tenderize them and not turn them into shoe leather. But as you stated, all flesh and little fat...

Two small, Beef Eye of Round pieces

I was fascinated when I spotted a package containing two half pound "filets" of Eye of Round Steak this morning while shopping. So I bought the package. Now, I don't know how I should prepare it! The "filets" are about two inches thick, by appx four inches long.

Any suggestions how I can prepare these twins so they will turn out tasty and tender.

Great foods and a slam dunk business plan sadly don't mean anything in this new economy.

Tomatoes 2014 - Variety Experience Yea? Nay? Meh?

Unlike your results, Doctor Lew, the two Brandywine plants in our SE Michigan garden were stars of the show with healthy plants, big fruit, and high yields. Two Beefsteak plants never made it out of the starting gate. Add a Purple Prince to that fail. One Bloody Butcher gave us nice, palm-sized and juicy tomatoes throughout the growing season. And a Mortgage Lifter produced nice fruit early, but faded in a very, very wet August.

Not enough Sun & heat here. Tooooo much rain.

What turns you off about restaurant restrooms?

Men's Room specific: Put a urinal in there! If it only has a toilet, more than likely, a lot of men & boys pee all over the seat and blithely walk away.

Bought several links at the local butcher for dinner tonight. I have no idea how to feature them as a main. Any suggestions for "go-withs"?

Holiday Market's The Smoke House: Just Say "No." [Detroit area]

Boag, did you ask to see the actual, on-site smoker? Do they boast an on-site chef, or experienced BBQ cook? Or, do they just follow a written "process".

Reply below seems to indicate that no ambient smoker thermometers or meat thermometers are in use...
