Do tell where you've eaten so far

Seeking GOOD food in Boca Raton/Delray Beach area, ok for toddlers

If you want to go stuff without it being a fast food chain, NEMO's is a wonderful fish place, carry out only BUT ould be a great time to eat on the beach. they have GREAT fish, and garlic crab for 5.99 a lb. just a hole in the wall but we enjoyed a 12 piece sea perch dinner for 19.99 that came with a HUGE load of fries and coleslaw. Also they have a whole tilapia for 4.99 with fries and coleslaw.. best deal in town...

Flying with Knives

GHG, As an employee of TSA, we do not take or destroy any property without notifying the Airline who then finds the owner and explaines the situation, at least thats whats in the SOP.. if you have a problem, contact TSA at the airport where you had the problem and demend that they review the tapes, everything is on tape and recorded.... 99.9% of us are honest....

KY Derby Reservations

Where are you going to have drinks near the track? There really isn't any place nice around there to do so. There are a lot of new places you could check out here in town... Harvest just opened downtown, haven't been but know the owners from a farmers Market, all the product will be sourced within 80 miles of Louisville, The Blind Pig in Butchertown, is as you might suspect, is a pork centric restaurant, Eiderdown is a place in Germantown that provides a German-American menu, The Holy Grale on Bardstown Rd is a beer centered place with excellent food, including fries served with 4 different sauces. That should get you started

I would recommend the Mayan Cafe as one of your splurge meals... excellent mexican/mayan food

I agree with all of Littleman's recommandations and would add Vietnam Kitchen, not too far from U of L...
Vietnam Kitchen

but they are closed oddly enough on weds.

China Inn right near the uni is excellent for thai food,
Cardinal Shopping Center
1925 S. Fourth St.

looks like a fast food place and is.. but great thai food.

Need Authentic KY/Bluegrass Country Recipes Please!

Personally I love Jezebel sauce on a block of cream cheese and serve with crackers... you could also make app size hot browns.... I may have a recipe for that

1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
1/4 cup boiling water
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup half-and-half cream
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
18 slices snack rye bread
6 ounces sliced deli turkey
1 small onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
In a small bowl, dissolve bouillon in water; set aside. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour until smooth; stir in cream and bouillon. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cheese until melted. Remove from the heat.
Place bread slices on two baking sheets. Layer each with turkey, onion and cheese sauce. Sprinkle with bacon. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with parsley. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.

Cape Cod lobster roll with no mayo?

Was at Arnold's on Mon night, had the hot roll...excellent, didn't need the butter and so much lobster it was falling out of the roll. I wasn't too hip on the onion rings, but I guess that was me..and my whole party. All and all it was good.

Krystle...I was just about to post the exact same questions... My family is going to Chatham from July 19-25, we need the same questions answered...

Can I bring hummus on a plane?? Please help!!

As a TSA employee, I can tell you, if the hummus is over 3.4 fl. oz. they can NOT go, if under that amount they can go.. they are a paste and that rules them out as part of your liquid carry-on.

Do you have onions and sour cream? Lightly salt and pepper then a pinch of sugar... broil the filets to the doneness you want. carmalize the onions, then swirl in a spoonful of sourcream to make a sauce....
