So I made a great big pot of jambalaya Saturday night for a big group which has left me with a couple packages of very good (and also expensive!) andouille sausage. Any ideas for recipes?
I typically only use it for jambalaya and would like to steer clear of gumbos, etc. My thoughts so far are to scramble it into eggs, maybe a soup, or a quesadilla...
My Santoku serves me well, but I really need a new 8" chef's knife for general duty. Thankfully, my wonderful girlfriend has agreed to provide one as a gift this holiday season.
So...I've begun comparison shopping. I don't need anything exorbitant, as much as I love the Ken Onion for $200, just a reliable sharp, no-frills knife that will serve me well for a few years. I'm thinking of a budget around $50, give or take.
Any suggestions, folks?
Is there some industry standard brand that the pro's use that I'm not aware of?
So I've recently decided to pick up a decent slow cooker (crock pot) since the girlfriend and I have moved in together and been cooking quite a bit more. Therefore, I'm on the hunt for a good slow cooker recipe book. As for style, definitely a newer, more progressive set of recipes, not the old school crock pot cookbook my Mom had growing up. I like all sorts of cuisines, like to be adventurous, love spicy foods, etc.
So there's a Cheeburger Cheeburger opening right down the block from me in Park Slope, 3rd Street and 7th Ave.
The space has been vacant since Miracle Grill shuttered almost a year ago. The fact that something has finally occupied the space is certainly good news, but not sure how I feel about a Cheeburger Cheeburger. We do have a Five Guys a few blocks down which will certainly be direct competition. Those fries are addictive.
Anyone been to one? Thoughts? The internet buzz seems fairly good, though I haven't been able to find out if you can order to temp.
I, regrettably, work in Flushing, Queens. (hey, its a job, right?) Been here for nearly eight months now and still can't find a decent deli to get a decent sandwich. I'm talking the cold cut variety.
By the way, no knock against Queens, I'm just more of a Manhattan/Brooklyn bloke. :)
The better half and I are spending this July 4th weekend in Montauk, my first time. Plan to do at least one night out at a decent restaurant to satisfy my foodie cravings. The boss suggested East by Northeast, looks like it has potential.
So, any recommendations SE'ers? Any 'can't miss' local spots I should drag her to?
