You can still pay with cash. Mejor whatever.

Dry white wine substitute

Just leave out the wine, and quit reading the website that said vinegar is a substitute.

Advice on cornbread mixes

Actually I wouldn't use Jiffy for stuffing myself. It's good on its own but too sweet and cakey for stuffing. I agree with using Krusteaz or Martha White if it's available where you are.

Drive-by Posts?

Doesn't seem any worse than usual to me. At this point I still prefer a bridge to a paywall.

Should I be offended over a frozen pie?

"We've known for years that his father loathes my cooking. "
You've answered your own question. I would not bring anything and drink a lot of wine.

Canned Chili Craving

Heh, when my brothers and I were little, my mom used to feed us Wolf chili in taco shells with cheese and lettuce. I was shocked to learn that there were other kinds of tacos when I got a little older.

iOS 8.1

The iOS update doesn't work well on iPad2. I'm typing this on a new iPad Air after the iOS 8 update essentially ruined mine; the update caused intermittent connectivity issues along with slowdowns and freeze ups on this site and pretty much everywhere else. Many iPad 2 users reported this and there is a long list of settings you can change to solve some of the problems, but I fear your iPad2 will never be the same. I strongly recommend the iOS upgrade not be installed on the iPad 2 device if anyone else is thinking about it.

The Psychology Behind Costco's Free Samples

Yeah. My retired friend picks up a few hours at Costco some weekends as a sample lady, and says they get paid the same whether the product moves or not. She always hopes she gets stuff kids won't want. She loves fiber cereal days. :)

An interesting sandwich combo

Well thank you NYT. I have been mocked for eating this delicious combo for years. Dill pickles are good too.

Burger King Introduces a Burger with Black Bun, Sauce, and Cheese in Japan

This is actually a reprise for this burger, it was first introduced in 2012. "According to the company, bamboo charcoal was added to the cheese to give it its color, while squid ink was added to the sauce to make it darker."

Far-away Chains on your "To Do" List

JolliBee. In my heart I know it's probably dreadful, but the menu is strangely enchanting.

Taco Bell Pre-90s Was Good - Do You Notice the Difference Now?

No they're not. They don't even operate in Korea. The information on Wiki is the same on the YUM website, as well as NASDAQ.

LA Hound visiting KC for football and bbq

The last time I was there the burnt ends sandwich had the consistency of canned dog food. Bryant's has its loyalists but I think it's a dump. I guess you love it or you don't.

I have never eaten at _______ and I never will!

Nah, don't do Joe's Crab Shack. I am normally not that picky about chain restaurant meals, but Joe's is a waste of time and money.

Best base (onion soup mix, etc.) for a good pot roast??

Please do not use the words "powdered swill" to refer to the key ingredient of my mother's Sunday pot roast. However it is easy to create an alternative - here's an example:
If you don't want the tomato paste flavor, just leave it out.

Ina Garten's recipe is delicious. You won't have any leftovers.

Tipping for popcorn at the movies...? YEP!!!

Well, if you don't want to eat at the movies there's no point in returning. We sometimes go to the one in Leawood, KS, which the original AMC concept location in the Kansas City area. They offer a variety of stuff so you can usually find something appealing. Like you I enjoy the comfort and I've never found the food service to be distracting. I enjoy the option of beer or wine as well. Everything I've tried has been fine, but it is pricey because after all it is a movie theater.

An Open Letter to Chowhound re: the new format

" We all seem to think we own this site, but it just ain't so."
Thank you.

Do you like or dislike the new format ?

Love. I haven't seen so many adults having a simultaneous shitfit in a long time. I hope to see "holding my breath until I pass out" and "locking myself in my room until I die" in the near future.

"Google it"

Unfortunately snotty replies are common on the France board.

I can't stand looking at the Special Diets board because of all the medical advice asked for and given there. The worst offenders are those who "have had the exactly the same condition," "throughly researched" it, and consider themselves experts not only on diet but medication as well. I only hope that someone doesn't make a bad situation worse by taking advice that may not be as good as it sounds.

Banquet dinner options--how to choose what to eat?

I think I would just pick one and be sure to wear my big girl pants to dinner. Everyone involved with the wedding probably has a million other things to deal with without guests who must be sure the menu is to their liking. If you truly find the meal inedible you can always eat a roll and butter while being the epitome of graciousness while you butter the roll. The wedding truly is about the bride and groom, and they have done more than their part by offering 3 choices for guests to choose from.

It's actually fairly restrained compared to how it started out. Many of the original replies are gone.

From what I've read about Royal visits, the Queen wouldn't be picking up anybody's tab at the head of the line.

I dunno, maybe when they are elected President? There are limits to egalitarianism, maybe this is it.
