So I promised my gentleman friend fried chicken on Saturday. We're going on a picnic, so it'll be cold. Will this work? I've never done it before and I want to make sure it's still good. Also, what else should I pack? I'm planning buttermilk biscuits, but I'd like something fresh and green, too. Salad maybe? For what it's worth, we'll be having peach ice cream and toffee cookie sandwiches when we get back home.
So I'm really excited that Sonic Drive-In is finally opening in Connecticut (today, no less!) and I can finally stop being tortured by their television ads. I plan to make a pilgrimage on Friday, but I thought I might ask you guys for the inside scoop first. Is Sonic good? What are your favorite menu items? Thanks!
It's fall and I keep hearing about quince and seeing quince recipes. But here in Connecticut, I've never since a quince in a grocery store or anywhere else. Do you know where I might find quince? Are they just not available in the Northeast?
My bf and I were watching the other evening and Anthony Bourdain was in Italy. Kev was absolutely in awe of lardo and I'd like to get him some as a fun treat. So far, the only web site that I found sells it is Murray's Cheese. Do you know of any other web sites? Does Murray's sell quality goods via the interweb? I live in CT, which is sprinkled with old pockets of Italian immigrants. Is lardo the kind of thing an Italian market might have? Or perhaps another specialty food store?
So over in the food section, there's a discussion of the six most important tools in your kitchen. Again and again, "Le Creuset Dutch oven" comes up. Like many cooks, I covet just such a pot, but I'm stymied by the high cost. For those of you who own Le Creuset products, have you found them to be worth the money? Is there a cheaper brand that makes Dutch ovens of similar quality?
