The description of a bay leaf flavor on its own is all well and good but I would love to see a blind taste test of a variety of dishes with and without bay leaves to see if the taste is discernible in a/all finished dish(es). My own biases lead me to believe one bay lead won't make much of a difference, if at all, in a highly seasoned stew but can see it being more noticeable in a bechamel
If I'm paying online with a credit card (like on seamless) I will also tip via credit card. I probably do 15%-20%. Since I'm in manhattan I won't order from a place that isn't reasonably close to me. Maybe 10-15 blocks at most.
If it's an unusually expensive order for only 1-2 dishes than id probably go under 15%, an example being an expensive Italian place near me where two dishes may total $40. I would most likely tip $5-6 for that one.
@aliceanne - Emmett, is that you????
The pic with the sausage chucks... are those the pizza bones on the plate? If so, it looks like the dessicated remains of the "italian" bread you get free with baked ziti at a pizzeria. No wonder it was terrible.
Deciding to halve a recipe but instead of writing down the new measurements doing it in my head which resulted in half of some ingredients but not in others.... not the best pie I ever made
@mepm231 - have you eaten there in the past 10 years because it is one of the worst, overly doughy, pasty slices I have eaten. Just flat out terrible
Gotta love products that sell a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.
I actually would never say "one plain slice" just "one slice". Unless you specify a topping, it is understood to a plain slice. the only time I order a "plain" is if I get at least one other slice that has a topping or is a sicilian slice, Like "two plain, one sicilian" but if I ordered just two it would be "two slices."
Same thing if I called to order a pie, I'd say "a large pie" never a "large plain pie"
as a kid it was always Yodels. The worst would be when my mom would accidentally buy Devil Dogs which are just flat nasty. Without the chocolate coating it was a dry mess
@SlideSF - nice straw man.
Can't say I've ever had a cronut (or would even wait in those lines) but I would imagine they wouldn't keep well. If I ever left the city and moved rural, the top two things on my list would be bagels (Ess-a-bagel) and pastrami (Katz's). Both keep reasonably well but naturally won't be as good as fresh.
And to answer the question, if its slightly off, say medium instead of medium rare I generally won't send it back but if it is raw or cold in the middle or cooked through instead of medium rare I most likely would send it back.
@ajchafe - because we believe that well done burgers suffer in taste and texture compared to medium rare burgers. And not everyone has an irrational fear of eating things cooked to less than 180 degrees.
Man, I'm not sure there could be a more unflattering picture than that cross-section shot (nothing against the actual picture taken!)
This question is false... it implies there is something called chili with beans in.
Man, I really hate petition people. McDonald's is a business, not a government entity involved in goodwill. It will offer food that sells. Period. Obviously there aren't enough people like Kathy Freston to make this worthwhile. Move on and eat somewhere good.
@masaman - I'm not so sure about that. I don't go all detective trying to see if someone who chose beer or a cocktail over wine had one or four cocktails. The letter writer also said her other friends shared wine and appetizers, so that would make it extra hard to really pay attention as opposed to everyone getting one appetizer and one entree and seeing your friend didn't order anything or drinking water only (vs. the one beer Molly had). Then again, I usually drink more than my friends so if we are at a place where we have beer or cocktails instead of wine, I always offer to pay more or cover the entire tip, etc. but that more because I know I drank more rather than figuring out who only got one cocktail or didn't order a side dish, etc.
Not so sure I'd consider it secretly hate but I cannot for the life of me understand why tomatoes, onion and lettuce have become standard toppings. They bring nothing to the party and actually take a away from it. Adding cold (or worse, warm and wilted) veggies to a burger just ruin it.
The trifecta. Beer, Beef and wings
Ditch a 9month pregnant wife for 2 hrs to wait go crazy at the big apple bbq
I should add, my kids favorite is the Wellshire Farms that look like Dinosaurs which are just downright awful/cardboardy tasting. But they can put enough of those down to make Joey Chestnut blush.
As the parent of 2 kids (3 yr old and a 17 months), I have sadly become a connoisseur of chicken nuggets/tenders. Agree that Bell and Evans are the best but having to bake them 30 minutes make them practically useless for those of us with kids. I actually prefer the refrigerated version of the Purdue (rather than the frozen ones). They have a better taste and cook up with a better crunchy crust.
Toss them like the disposable utensil they are. A means to keep my hands relatively clean while eating a pizza.
Blue Smoke used have a crispy chicken sandwich on the lunch menu that was really good. Its been a few months since I've been there for lunch so I can't confirm if its still on the menu or not, but its definitely not on the dinner menu.
