Re: “The Colonel Comes Back to Eureka

If the KFC has a lunch buffet, I'll be there several times a month. Otherwise, maybe once a month. If they build a KFC with an A&W, it will be a favorite spot to be a regular! There are a lot of seniors in Eureka who loved having the KFC lunch buffet locally. One wonders when construction will begin, and what the projected opening date might be. Prices are a sensitive thing these days. Everywhere restaurants think there is no limit to how much people will pay. Eureka is well below the national income. Too much emphasis on high prices tends to drive restaurants out of business. The $6 restaurant burger is now $10 at Denny's. At Carl's Jr, the Great American Burger is 2 for $6 (or $7 -- depending) with a coupon! Amen! Thank you Carl's Jr! I love you guys!

Re: “Together for a New Year Feast

I love this recipe! Just tried it out yesterday for an early Lunar New Years dinner and my family loved it! It tastes just like the traditional rice ball soup that my grandma used to make. Thanks Wendy!

Re: “Celery at Center Stage

Have you made cream of celery soup? It is one of my very favorite to make, light, flavorful. I even like the one that comes in Andy Warhol's brand. I love celery, raw or cooked.

Re: “The Simple Pleasure of Lentils

Kudos! Another gourmet food guru who provides all of the geographic, canonical, la familial anecdotes about a particular food commodity and says nothing about where, if available in the Z I any of the exalted legumes can be found. The five traditional "W's" have been banished from the new millennia craft of Journalism by Techie ignorance. George Sarres

Re: “'Tis the Season for Tamales

Making tamales at Christmas is a family tradition, my 90 yr. old mother still makes them. The trouble I've had living in the northcoast for over 40 years is buying fresh ground masa. El Pueblo Market used to travel to the Santa Rosa area and bring back orders for the fresh masa during the holidays. They stopped doing that before they lost their market to the fire. So what I have resorted to is when visiting southern Cal. I make a visit to a local Mexican market where one can watch the soaked hominy being ground and sold either
plain or prepared. The aroma in these markets is just amazingly wonderful. I bring the masa back to Humboldt county frozen, packed in dry ice. I used to hold tamale making parties but find it easier to make them by myself or with just one other friend. To me, the fresh masa makes the best tamales and it just doesn't seem like Christmas without the smell of steaming pots of tamales cooking on Christmas Eve.

Re: “Quinoa's Boom and Bust

I would be happy to buy lots of Lundberg quinoa if it tasted good. As it is, every time I eat any quinoa I think, "Gee, I wish this was something else."

Re: “The Price of a Burger

Perhaps you had better speak with Mr. Larose and seek remedial math tutoring. You claim the price of a biodegradable food box to be 85 cents/unit. The actual cost is < .07$/unit as per the advertised price per case at a popular online retailer:

It is obvious that this is merely an editorial intended to show support for a group of advertisers, but please don't insult our intelligence by pretending to do math and then blatantly fudging the figures when they're not supporting your narrative.

Re: “The Price of a Burger

This article is SO OFF POINT, obviously you havent worked on a line or shopped for a restaurant. These numbers youve compiled are a great way to put people out of business, especially the ones who use local products and pay their employees well! Stupid.

Re: “The Colonel Comes Back to Eureka

I never figured out why the Crescent City KFC made better chicken than the ones in Eureka. Nicer staff, too.

Re: “A Pie to Take with You

This sounds so much like my mom's cream cheese pie which I favor over any other cheese cakes. Thanks for making me inspired to make one for the weekend.

Re: “Meals to Seek Refuge In

If Campground is as spotty as Salt (really good, OK, downright terrible) no thanks. As a matter of fact because of my experiences at Salt no thanks.
If you want to charge premium prices you'd better deliver premium experiences every time. I am not into gambling.
I like Renata's but like a lot of restaurants up here suffers from inconsistency. Not anywhere near as bad as Salt but it could be improved. I still like to go there and their mocha is the bomb.

Re: “Mushrooms and Tofu

Nice to see a vegan food feature. Anyone who is a legit environmentalist and/or feminist would not eat meat and dairy, or drastically cut consumption.

Re: “Heart on a Stick

You should always aim to prepare food in a manner that it raises your wellbeing. The human body may only utilise its capacity to recover merely by replacing your poor eating habit. It's actually much simpler to drop most of the extra fat when your metabolism does the job right.

I found a course which gets quite a lot of awareness from nutritionists. . Take the time to let me know your feelings about the topic.

Re: “Ten Items or Fewer: WinCo Edition

Try the gummy grapefruit candy. Oooh. Plus, the organic tofu (at the far end of the veggie dept) is the best I've ever had. And they're so cheap.
