What is your weirdest kitchen experience?

Neato! The past couple of days, I've heard a strange, sucking sound emitting from my garbage disposal/InSinkErator. Of course, due to my own vivid imagination and this thread, it has freaked me RIGHT THE HELL OUT, so I run it just to make sure nothing is in there. Or whatever is in there is dead. Silly me.

Mickey's (Hamden, CT)

Two words: chocolate soufflé
Two more: SAVE ROOM

What a wonderful thinG this is, served with raspberry sorbet! Highly recommend. Well worth every penny and calorie.

Mikado, Middletown, CT closed?

Well worth it if you haven't already been. Thanks for the heads up! :)

Mikado, Middletown, CT closed?

They are OPEN. Don't know if they had technical issues yesterday, but the phone is working just fine as of right now. I just called. You sorta spooked me. :)

Nope. Not the case for me, anyway. :)

Same, Windows using Chrome. It's exactly as you described--seems to happen when I try to make more than one comment on the same thread. Definitely now new; has been happening for quite a while now (at least since sometime last year, if not longer).

I was rolling on your first sentence alone! HA HA HA HA HA HA! I think it was how casually you said it. :)

What is your weirdest kitchen experience?

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What my nightmares are made of--except they're usually all over the floor or ground, and I can't get where I'm going because THERE THEY ARE. I always tell my mom, well, I'd be moving straight back home till my house sold, never to enter the dwelling again, if I didn't have a coronary first ...

Fresh mozzarella cheese in Newport RI?

I bought Narragansett Creamery mozz last week at my local Whole Foods. Very nice! How lucky your local Stop & Shop stores carry it! :D

CT food finds 2014: our year in review

I've had Berlin Lunchbox on my list since you posted. Finally got there this week. Whattagreatfind--thank you!

Save room for a cupcake! Or shoot, make time to drop in to grab one if you find yourself on the Pike.

"Dynamite" sandwiches in RI? Where can i try one?

Is there a recipe you prefer? I've been reading along and was thinking of trying to make at home. I'm with Jay--haven't made Sloppy Joes in years and these sound delish.

I, for one, like "Kiss my little butt!" Let's all try to drop it into conversations and see how that goes. BACI FONDUZZO!!!

'Salad' / cheat comfort foods

You also made me think of tabbouleh, which I've yet to make, but seems pretty straightforward and a good add for this topic. :)

That with a lamburger or hamburger would be nice-nice.

'Salad' / cheat comfort foods

Yes! I love chicken salad, especially because it's two completely different meals: starts as roasted chicken, gets a second round as chicken salad. :) Lots and lots of variations how to do it, too.

Your thread is a great reminder for some easy and cool summer meals. Glad you helped me start thinking along these lines, too.

'Salad' / cheat comfort foods

I make a similar salad to yours with potstickers--need to revisit that idea as it's a good one!

Adding to the suggestions, how about a BLT salad? It's pretty much bacon guacamole with mayo over your favorite greens. Details here:

Here's a Thai-like spicy chicken salad I like (and need to make again, too). It's kinda like laab or larb and is nice to make when mint is blowing up all over the yard:

:( Not easy to be a small business these days--makes me sad to read and I never even got to go there!

CT: Make your own Main Street (if you could move your favorite restaurants ... )

Is this the Drumstik of which you speak--in Bridgeport? :)

Thanks for grabbing Lucibello's--how could I forget to bring an Italian bakery to town?! I'd take La Fiorentina in Springfield, too. :)

I also want to move Mickey's in Hamden.

CT: Make your own Main Street (if you could move your favorite restaurants ... )

OK, Connecticut, if you could bring your very favorite restaurants to your hometown, who would you choose?

Me?

Gaetano's [deli/sandwiches](Stratford)
King & I Thai (Manchester) or Thai Charm (New Milford)
Lao Sze Chuan (Milford)
La Tavola (Waterbury)
Saybrook Soup & Sandwich Co. (Old Saybrook)--I actually beg them to open here just about every time I go
The Seehund [German] (New London)
T D Vietnam Palace (Stratford)

If I'm being selfish, I'd also steal:
Feng (Hartford)
Neil's Donuts (Wallingford)
Sayulita (Glastonbury)

But please don't even think of taking away (from M'town):
Mondo
Vecchitto's

Your turn. Whatchoogot?

What is YOUR recipe, then, Honey?

Old Saybrook lunch

I hope so, too. I had lunch and takeout recently and it was good as ever. Only once did we get butternut bisque that seemed way off (past its date, maybe?)--and we called to tell them. I'd let them know. They seem eager to make it right. And those rolled up cones with cheesecake are STELLAR!

May Wine?

I planted extra new herbs to give this a try. Thanks for the education. See also:

May Wine?

I hadn't heard of it, either, but I love what you brought to your friend. I'm a fan of April Wine myself. ;) Will keep this idea in mind for the summer.
