   Hi there :)      Truffles are a very unique mushroom, substituting another mushroom will not be the same.  But truffles are often used to "top" or "finish" the dish, if you do not have truffles...no problem...top with something else that you do have on hand.  Truffles are completely different in flavor and their huge aroma.  While pricing truffles per pound gives you a big WOW factor, you don't have to buy them by the pound.  One small black truffle will cost you...
   Hi Mike!  Sounds like you've had some nice trips, thanks for sharing.  I'll definitely have to try and work in Vicksburg to the trip.  Thanks for all the tips.           Lol, I like that          Dan
    That was just the type of advice I was looking for, thanks Mike and FlipFlopGirl.  Mike, so it sounds like you've done exactly what we're looking to do...I can't wait!      Thanks again!   Dan
   First off, I hope the people in Louisiana are recovering from Hurricane Isaac, my thoughts and prayers are with them during these tough times.     I do have a trip already planned to Memphis, then New Orleans.  During this time we also plan to go out to Avery Island, on the way is Pierre Part, Louisiana.  Alligator season will be open and I would LOVE to get some properly cooked/fresh alligator.  Does anyone have some recommendations on a place that serves good...
   How did you get the owl to wear that stuff!          amazing, great job!
   Well, plans for Labor day will include having the family over our house.  I plan to keep things fairly simple...the only two items othe list so far are smoked ribs and cornbread.  I'll probably put together a simple coleslaw as well.  Dessert?  I don't know...maybe I'll see how the peaches are when it gets closer.    Dan
  Bagna Couda, now that brings back some memories!  We used to have this quite often when I first started on the Fire Dept.  It was just a simple Evoo, butter, cream, garlic, anchovies, black pepper and bread.  As people became more health concious we now eat alot healthier.  I had nearly forgot about this wonderful little snack, thanks for the reminder.   , Dan
         I'd simply build a wood fire, get it good and hot...and throw the steak right in the white hot embers.  Then after little bit give it a turn and pull it off at rare/med.rare.  With a good thick ribeye...this method actually works quite well.
    Hi Margcata!       I normally equate Bisque with lobster or crap. Shrimp bisque sounds really good, for some reason it never occured to me???   Dan
   oh that sounds gooood!
