Re: “The Open Thread Wants to Know What to Waffle

Oh the waffle iron fried cheese sounds great! Add a spoonful of ground oats to it--that's gonna be something worthy of a glass of wine.

Re: “The Open Thread Wants to Know What to Waffle

I though I invented waffle doughnuts! Tempeh Reuben is my opening gambit. Sticky rice patties, then serve with ponzu or some such dunk-san. Sticky rice rolled around a tidbit of mozzarella, then rolled in breadcrumbs for a grill-waffled arancini. Avocado & jack sandwich on egg bread. Thinly sliced banana bread peanut butter sandwich. I'll be right over!

Re: “The Open Thread Wants to Know What to Waffle

i have absolutely nothing to offer, because all i can think about is filling every single waffle indentation with crunchy peanut butter and drizzling Mrs Butterworths all over the top. this was the waffle of my youth.

Re: “What'd You Eat This Weekend? Russian Tea, French Toast Casserole and Breadfruit Fish Tacos on the Beach

I would like to eat Breadfruit Fish Tacos on the beach. Its taste is very delicious. I would like to enjoy on the beach. I have also got many delicious seafood recipes at http://www.marinews.com/seafood-recipes/seafood-recipes-articles/. I have prepared many seafood recipes by my own hand and enjoyed a lot.

So glad to hear what this is being used for. Working nearby, I certainly miss Bosco’s, but happy to see it will be put to good use!

Drove by the old Bread & Co on Highway 100 today, and it is sporting a "Coming Soon Sam's Place" sign.

Re: “Local Entrepreneur's NourishWise Aims to Point Diners Toward Healthiest Things on Restaurant Menus

This is fantastic - thanks for getting the word out! My wife and I have been dieting pretty strictly for the past few months and after a brief holiday break we are getting back into it. When trying to log everything you eat and restrict calories one of the most frustrating things is that for eating out we would often times end up a chain restaurant because we could either look up the nutritional info before we went and know what we could order or they had a section of the menu under a certain calorie count to order from. Having someone do the work to provide info about local restaurants is awesome and I'm looking forward to learning about healthier local options and being able to stick to my eating goals while supporting local businesses and eating better food.

Re: “Local Entrepreneur's NourishWise Aims to Point Diners Toward Healthiest Things on Restaurant Menus

I wish data told me that it tasted good, as well. I don't need a service to tell me if something is healthy, though. I think most people can figure that out for themselves. It's also not hard to say, "Hold the cheese and mayo."

Re: “Local Entrepreneur's NourishWise Aims to Point Diners Toward Healthiest Things on Restaurant Menus

Actually, rather than "burying you in reams of data," you get something like this (from an actual email about The Wild Cow's menu):

"Brunch Tofu Scramble

Nutritional facts:
Calories 230
Total Fat 12 (g)
Carbs 15 (g)
Protein 20 (g)

Served for brunch on Sundays, the Tofu Scramble is a protein rich, vegan take on scrambled eggs with seasonal veggies and topped with homemade sour cream."

Doesn't seem like an unreasonable amount of info to make an informed choice of what to eat to me.

Re: “Local Entrepreneur's NourishWise Aims to Point Diners Toward Healthiest Things on Restaurant Menus

Another thought - this website is the equivalent of Big Data for food. After burying you in reams of data analysis you're going to get those chicken wings because you really want them, not that shitty portabella burger on that cardboard flavored sprouted grain bun. YOLO.

Re: “Local Entrepreneur's NourishWise Aims to Point Diners Toward Healthiest Things on Restaurant Menus

One side effect of this, ahem, useful service may be the way people perceive what certain establishments have to offer. If one of the restaurants featured has a very slim list of healthy options, don't you think it may drive away customers, a sort of unintended side effect to the reality of their unhealthy food? Taking this model to it's practical end you may need to go to 5 different restaurants in order to enjoy a full meal. No?
And really, what makes a meal at a restaurant so goddam good? Butter, salt and cream. In everything.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: New Year's Food Resolutions 2015

In 2015 I'm going to start becoming a more responsible meat eater and commit to buying locally as often as possible, but always natural/organic. Porter Road Butcher will be getting a lot of my money.

I've recently had a few gross experiences with big supermarket meats, but mainly I'm unable to ignore how disgusting factory farmed can be.

I'm not going to be pretentious about it at restaurants or when I'm invited over to someone's home. But if it's being cooked in my kitchen it's gonna be as green as I can get it.

Ughh. I'm the worst.

Re: “What'd You Eat This Weekend? Gyros, Dates and Beef That Requires 'Fluffing'

Tried out Love, Peace, and Pho on Friday for the first and last time. Check was $25 and some change for a bowl of veggie pho, banh mi, and an order of spring rolls. Left feeling completely ripped off knowing I could get a better version of the same thing for about half the price on the west side. $11 for a bowl of veggie pho with one piece of broccoli is not cool. I wish them the best.

I second the vote on Mona from Bloomy Rind--we got a pound of it at Thanksgiving, and it was sensational.

Re: “What'd You Eat This Weekend? Gyros, Dates and Beef That Requires 'Fluffing'

I had a good meal from Kebab Gyros about 7 months ago--stick with the lamb. I was at the UPS place next door tonight. Both times the restaurant was empty, and I wonder how it stays in business.

Darn it. I hate being reminded of Portillo's. One of things I really, really miss about Chicagoland.
