Food and restaurant jokes.

A couple is having dinner at a fine restaurant and after placing their order with the waiter, the husband notices a spoon in the waiter's breast pocket. He questions the waiter about it and the waiter replies "We had an efficiency expert in here last week and he said that the spoon is the piece of silverware most often dropped on the floor. By carrying an extra spoon, we save time because we don't have to go back to the kitchen to replace it." "OK, that makes sense;" says the husband.
After the appetizers, the waiter brings their entrees and this time, the wife says " I notice you have a black thread dangling from your fly. why is that?" The waiter replies " Well the efficiency expert pointed out that by tying the thread around the penis, we can go to the bathroom without touching ourselves, so there is no need to wash our hands, thus saving more time."
The woman says "Oh that is clever, but I have one more question. The thread enables you to take it out, but how do you get it back in?"
The waiter replies in a whisper, "I don't know about the other guys, but I use my spoon."

The psychology of distrusting GMOs.

One Monsanto claim is that GMO seeds provide higher yields than traditional seeds. A report released earlier this year by the USDA's Economic Research Service showed that those claims are untrue. The report states:

"Over the first 15 years of commercial use, GE [genetically-engineered] seeds have not been shown to increase yield potentials of the varieties. In fact, the yields of herbicide-tolerant or insect-resistant seeds may be occasionally lower than the yields of conventional varieties."

Lester Brown, founder of WorldWatch and President of the Earth Policy Institute, puts it more bluntly:

" ... no genetically modified crops have led to dramatically higher yields ... Nor do they seem likely to do so, simply because conventional plant-breeding techniques have already tapped most of the potential for raising crop yields."

This was written using salmon as a protein, but it would work with chicken too.

Need some interesting EASY chicken recipes

Saute chicken. Cover half w/ roughly chopped Kalamata olives and half w/ capers. make a pan sauce w/ fond from chicken, a little chicken stock and some lemon juice. Reduce it or thicken it with corn starch. Spoon it over the chicken and olive/caper topping.Garnish w/chopped parsley (optional).

Thai in Queens

Surprising. My preference for ZE Queens over ZE E Village is that the spice level in Queens was more robust.

Does Fast Food Really Make People Fat?

Are we sheep that are incapable of making our own decisions?

Oh, we're capable of making our own decisions. We're especially adept at making bad decisions.

Yes, I highly recommend ZE Queens. Standouts were a raw beef larb, a Thai spiced version of steak tartare, and crispy whole fish.

2 dishes I loved at CT Too were the frog legs and a catfish dish, I believe it's called Sun Dried Cat Fish.

Kao Soy--new Thai in Red Hook

FWIW, I found that my meals at Zaab Queens were better than one at Zaab, Manhattan. Could just be that when white boy asks for spicy, they don't quite believe him. I've also had a very good meal at Chow Thai Too, a more comfortable room than the original.

Estela, a New Restaurant in Nolita

I ate dinner there this week. Reservations hard to get unless dining by 6:30 or 9PM and later. We were a party of 4, sharing 6 savory dishes & 1 dessert, plus wine & coffee. Everything was good, some excellent. Beef Tartare, Lamb Ribs, Pork Shoulder and Fried Black Rice were the best. Burrata & Cod dishes were good, but not exciting. Chocolate cake dessert was excellent. Thumbs up.

2 Burn-Your-Face-Off Spicy Dinners?

The Grapefruit Habanero Margaritas at Barrio Chino is a wow. Sugar-in -the-raw on the rim, in place of salt, tames the habanero just a bit.
