    Ground meat

    Really depends on the market, we buy ground meat from only one of two markets, others I wouldn't touch. We've ground meat at home but not recently as seems like too much effort if you have access to a good reliable market.

    The Great Marinara Controversy

    No not Italian, and now just use the tomatoes we grow to make marinara, and am in the 4 hour simmering fraternity. Also now make the marinara partly with our tomatoes I've either roasted and those made into confit. In addition, chopped onions, garlic, tomato paste, basil, oregano and red pepper...

    Silliest Things...

    So how do you deal with the 'morons', oops I meant customers of course!...for instance the idiot who said the super well done lamb was overcooked. Do you replace the order with a 'smile', say no way, or what. Are we in the "customer is always right territory" or have things advanced to where...

    What's your favorite chili pepper?

    Like and use all that are available for what dish they best suit. Because of my enjoyment of chilis en nogadas, if I had to choose one, it would be the poblano.

    The Food Network? Yesterday and today

    What the Food Network et al have discovered is the apparently permanent dumbing down of their TV audience and to appeal to the lowest common denominator translates to higher ratings...QED.

    A brutal dose of Holiday perspective

    It takes an incident like that to bring home how fragile life is and how aware of our own mortality we should be. I had my 'incident' today as was with my very close friend when he was told he had one of the more aggressive forms of prostate cancer, and if it's spread to the lymph nodes, he's...

    Tip or get thrown in jail

    If the story is to be believed, then these "dillweeds" were going to pay for the grub, just not the 'alleged mandatory' tip, so kinda unwarranted to blame the customers for the establishment's despicable behavior. Somebody who knows the pub posted that they're "famous" for rude behavior and...

    What are the worst leftovers?

    Paraphrasing Boy's Town, LOL, I agree with "there's no such thing as a bad leftover"! There's always a way to make them tasty and kinda fun to try and devise new methods.

    risotto ideas?

    IMO the greatest way you can treat yourself is to make risotto with truffles, white or black depending on what else goes in. Ingredients could include mushrooms, onion, parmesan, chicken or beef stock, or whatever you think will make you happy!
