Pet Peeves When Dining Out

Servers not closing the deal. Service is awesome up through entree, and then it's like they went home. Having to hunt anyone down for refills, desert, additional drinks, to go containers and the check? AND they have runners that deliver the food? What am I supposed to be tipping for? Taking my order? Obviously a big problem here...

We braise it, make jerky after cooking it first, chili, sausage, bolognese and stew. We hunt black bear, never had brown bear. Berry fed bears are much tastier than salmon fed bears. Check Alaska Outdoor Journal under the hunting forums. Bet they've got lots of ideas.

Warm, Easy to eat and easy to digest so you get max nutrition. Soups you can sip, and anything made with beef will increase milk supply. Cooked fruits with oatmeal and crockpot/roasted veggies were great to keep digestion happy...
