Rumor has it that these are all good tips all but can only, first person, testify as to the outrageousness of the "XXX Adults Only Grilled Cheese Sandwich," which is the best grilled cheese I've ever had. I say this being not a Vegan and consider myself very fussy about my grilled cheese's.
But is the steak grass fed meat or is it antibiotic, hormone filled meat?
Damn, now where will I go for a steak and not be pestered by the trendy types. The combo of steak, whiskey and racing... not to mention the company! I also love the AA for breakfast, best ham steak ever!
I can agree with this post. Double A doesn't disappoint. This place is a diamond in the rough when it comes to steak done right!
Adele's is the best steak for the price. Tender meat served by gorgeous women without wading through drunks or snobs.
piper +swordsman +Haggis+but in the Highlands--memorable
Thank you, Linda- this was a great little read. As a Mexican American, chorizo is a comfort food. Your description of it is dead on and it gave stirred my "food memories," to the point that I smelled it! I will be heading to winco tomorrow! Thanks!
I love Pho Thien Long but don't forget Annie's (5th St. Eureka). There's is Phonomenal.
now i know how come it tasted so good when i was a kid!
You put the butter in the kugel and you don't look back!
This may be one of the greatest articles ever written!
My Uncle, David George Gordon, just re-released his cookbook, the Eat-a-bug Cookbook. First published in 1998, the revised version has color photographs, and more recipes! A great starter book for anyone interested in cooking insects. http://www.amazon.com/The-Eat-Bug-Cookbook…
Fried crickets last month in Dalat, Vietnam were quite yummy
Another grower owned business in Arcata. The whole city is run by growers for growers; how else do you explain the pointless shops on the Plaza? The next time you're near the Plaza count the amount of head shops within blocks of each other...really? Arcata quit bitching about the growers; they are the only thing supporting the economy of your town...poor college students certainly can't! Who else would pay $5 for Tator Tots and some sauce poured out of a Sysco Can....get real!
It would be nice if they offered a couple of specials so it's not the same menu everytime. After a few times we found it kind of boring, however good the food it. And it is.

I have successfully picked huckleberries for over 35 years. My biggest haul was the year I picked 48 quarts of cleaned berries over several weeks. This establishes my credentials as a successful berry picker. Your method of picking is a) damaging to the plant, and b) disrespectful of pickers who come after you. A FAR FRIENDLIER method of picking that is quite efficient is to "milk" the berries. You place a wide mouthed bucket underneath the branch you are picking, and hold onto that branch with the same hand you are using to hold the bucket. For right handed me, that's holding the bucket and branch with my left hand. Then, with your other hand (my right) place your palm under the branch, reach your fingers up, and gently massage the berries that are there. The ones that are ripe will fall into your hand, or just past your hand, and into the bucket. Yes, you will get a few leaves, some bugs, and some debris, along with a few green berries, but NOTHING like the process you describe. It is helpful to have a closed container with you, too, so that when you get over a quart of berries in your bucket, you can transfer them, and seal it up, and keep picking.
HOW TO CLEAN-- There are tricks for cleaning them that make that process much easier as well. First of all, salad spinners are a fabulous tool, but any strainer that fits inside of a large container will work. Place the berries into the strainer/spinner, and fill the container with water. The white berries (which contain a virus in common with blue berries, and should be carefully disposed of so as not to spread the virus, like the birds do) float, the leaves float, some of the bugs float. Skim them off. Throw them away. Lift the strainer up, dump the water, start over. Do this enough times that you no longer get debris, and are faced with a mass of clean purple berries and some green ones. You can either scoop them by the handful and sort, or take a cookie sheet, and put handfuls out, pull out the green ones, etc. This works, and works well. I am no longer the premier picker in my family, having aged out of that title, which now goes to my 6'3" son who can reach more berries, and has greater stamina than I now have. Have fun picking, and please don't promote practices that are damaging to this wonderful plant!
You don't have to pick out the stems and leaves if you pick JUST the fruit off the plant. I'm not a botanist but I think if you always remove the fine tendril branches when picking fruit the plant has to focus energy and resources to replace the leaves instead of just growing more fruit. Also then you pick a bunch of inedible green huckleberries as well as seen in your photo. I pick them by holding a large hat underneath the bunches and just quickly pick the berries 2-4 at a time and they just fall right in.
