[HOU] Need Recs--Viet/Chinese/Greek/Creole?

I definitely recommend Lai Lai's. The staff is very friendly and every dish I've had there is fantastic. I remember my favorite being the Triple Beef Noodle.

Pulled Pork Leftovers

I usually use our leftovers as a topping on baked potatoes. I like the quesadilla and taco suggestions too.

Stacked Pyrex stuck

That is exactly what I did. It worked like magic, in under 2 minutes!

Thanks for the suggestions.

Can you help me in "West" Houston?

When we lived out near Hwy 6 we enjoyed Brother's Pizza near the Sam's at I-10.
Cafe Caspian at 12126 Westheimer is good for Persian.
Cafe Red Onion (http://www.caferedonion.com/eldridge....) is close too and they have good South America food (not traditional Mexican or Tex-Mex).

It really depends on what you DO like.

Stacked Pyrex stuck

Thanks, I'll try the ice. I've been telling my husband we should try putting them in the freezer to see if that helps but we were afraid they would explode.

And yet another reason why I NEED a subscription to Cooks Illustrated.

Stacked Pyrex stuck

I have two 2-cup/1pt Pyrex measuring cups that were stacked on top of each other and now are stuck together. I've tried canola oil and soaking in soapy water but it's been a week now. Any suggestions before I toss them?

Sonic

We lost our Sonic when we moved to Portland 2 years ago. They finally opened one in the suburbs and we were very disheartened to find the cherry limeade tasted like very syrup-y. I thought they mixed them by hand but it tasted like a pre-mixed syrup.

That said, it's not worth the 2 hour drive. If you happen to be near one, sure stop by for a drink - pineapple shakes are my favorite.

HOUSTON eats

In Pearland, you should go to Mely's for Tex-Mex. In Houston, you try benjy's in the village and Cafe Red Onion on Kirby. Perry's Italian Grill in Clear Lake is pretty good too. It's fast food but Whataburger makes a good burger and their shakes are fabulous.
