So glad you commented on the memory of your train sandwich! I never had one but can visualize and taste the sandwich you're describing. In fact, I'm about to go to bed and you made me hungry! Let's see if anyone else comments on this taste treat.
Why is it called Pullman loaf? Something to do with the old trains???
I once asked a manager at Trader Vics what made their Crab Rangoon better than the rest. He told me their "secret" ingredient not shown in the Trader Vics cookbook was a touch of gin added to the crab filling!
Ummmmmmm. Someone pass the mac and cheese. No drama in the prep.
I've frozen smoked salmon and its still edible when thawed. I found the consistency poor though....I can't peel off the slices because they tear and crumble.
As far as how to tell if its over the hill - I trust my nose. Fish especially always lets you know!
Marvin Dog...the waffle dish sounds like a close cousin to my "Hillbilly Special." Look about 6 comments above yours!
Oh yes...it has to be the "Hillbilly Special" devised by a family member to remain nameless. I only cooked it it because when this family member visited, he wanted it...and would be insulted if we all didn't enjoy his recipe.
Cook a pound of bacon in a cast iron skillet. Remove the bacon and fill the bottom of the skillet with pancake batter - of course do NOT remove the grease first. While the batter is still soft, put the bacon back on top. When the pancake is three quarters cooked, place about 3-5 eggs atop the whole thing and wait until the eggs are cooked. Serve.
There has probably never been a greasier, uglier dish made in the world. YUK!
Sounds fantastic and I can't wait to try it. You mentioned that lobster is a luxury, which it usually is. But just this week I read on some online cooking website from Maine that lobster is cheaper than hot dogs right now!
Maybe it'll close soon and we can get another deli!
