Globe Article on Seafood Substitutions.

My wife got sick after eating at a Medford organic "blue" Sushi joint. I wonder now if that is what actually happened? We just assumed she got some bad fish.

Wegmans to Open on Sunday, 16 October

You can quote any stores specials to make them look good. It is the day to day stuff that counts. You will see.

Wegmans to Open on Sunday, 16 October

Been to the Pittsford one. Good selection. But, waaaaaaaaay overpriced. I will stick to MB. Can't afford Weggies.

Looking for a restaurant with a very nice "relish tray" and good shrimp dip, too.

The Continental in Saugus is exactly the place that you are looking for.

Recommendations for old school/divey/gritty Boston spots - restaurants and bars (w/ or w/o food)

Not sure if it is still open............. But I have fond memories of the steak tips at the Quiet Man Pub in Southie.

Southern Barbecue in Boston? Oxymoron?

CND's in Wakefield is quite good. Very accommodating and helpful owners.

Wegman's- looks like it's really happening?

Yup. Because they are the only store to carry those items. You just spend more there.

Budget gas grill?

If it is the made in the USA Huntington, that is the best deal.

Been getting my 'cue lately from CnD's in Wakefield. Real deal. Best around.

bbq units, which to buy??? (moved from Ontario board)

You are in Canada? Broil King makes decent (as good as Weber) grills.

Best Pizza on North Shore???

New owners at the Corner Deli, but the pizza is as good as ever.

Durgin Park lately?

Keep in mind that DP is one of those places that the kool kids around here bash to look hip.

BBQ grill grate sticking issue

Pam, For Grilling Cooking Spray:

INGREDIENTS: Liquid Palm Oil, Phosphated Mono And Diglycerides, Dimethylpolysiloxane and Propellant.

No thank you.

BBQ grill grate sticking issue

Don't ever spray your grill or oil it. Oil the food! Spray or brush on a little olive oil on both sides before putting on the grill. Trust me. This works and won't discolor your grill like PAM (yuck, did you ever read the ingredient list?).

Wegman's- looks like it's really happening?

Don't know Tops. I am talking about how their prices compare to local stores, specifically MB.

Wegman's- looks like it's really happening?

Wow. They are getting aggressive. Still no big deal to me. As I said the Pittsford store was horribly overpriced for the same stuff you can get at MB. They do have a nice variety of gourmet items, though.

Wegman's- looks like it's really happening?

Wegman's has good quality and selection, no doubt. But the prices at the Pittsford one (the only that I have been to) are crazy high. Even if one opened across the street, I would would still shop at MB.

Weber Grill Grates.

Can you back that up? I am pretty sure that the replacement SS grates (Weber 7527) I just bought are bare SS.

Any Rice Cooker Gurus in here

I am not sure that it is worth spending big $$ for a rice cooker. My $20.00 Aroma cooks rice (both white and brown) as good as the much expensive Panasonic that I used to have. YMMV.

Teresa's of Middleton

We were thinking of trying Teresa's. Now I guess we won't. No excuse for their attitude.

Wegman's- looks like it's really happening?

Very familiar with W in the Rochester area. Big, good variety, VERY expensive. Nothing special.

Weber Grills -- Has Quality Declined?

If the local guys's grills are EP series rather that E series, then yes they are better. They have legit SS innards.
