Thanks Papajoe. Was that thread cooking for cats or cooking with cats?

(sorry, it was a beachball--I had to take a swing)

      Didn't know there was an intro thread where I could have started out. By now my past posts have revealed that I am North Jersey by birth, Western Mass by education and San Diego county by choice. Married to my retired Chief of the Mess (subs not surface) and we both love family owned resturants the best. He's from Gettsyburg with parents from The Shore so we are diner people all the way. I relly enjoy reading the posts on this sight and look forward to meeting some of you guys for dinner some day. Doatsie

                I was sent here by an online friend at a BBQ forum. Great website, why didn't I find it before?

                I live in a Milwaukee suburb, but currently work near St. Joseph, Michigan. I also travel regularly to Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario for work and to Madison, WI to visit my college age kids. In summary, I get a lot of chances to eat out and have strong opinions of joints in a lot of places.

                Jim

                    One of the great experiences in Kitchener and Waterloo, at least when I was last there a few years ago, is to go into a supermarket and look at the bread section. There's almost no white bread! That shows how strong the German influence is.

                    As you probably know, Kitchener was named Berlin until World War I.

                      Voyager - K-W is a great place to visit. I always laugh at the traffic lined up at every Tim Horton's every morning.

                      I haven't looked at the breads at the grocers, I usually spend my time at the chocolate shelf and the meat cases. Don't let me start talking about Peameal Bacon.

                          Hi, I have been lurking for about a week now and have decided to start posting! I don't get to travel to other parts of the country very often, but when I do I enjoy trying local food places. I live in Indiana with my husband, located in Indianapolis. We travel all over the state and are familiar with places to eat here. I love food and cooking so I am looking forward to new things.

                            Hi Shelbie,
                            Welcome to Roadfood. We are always happy to see another Hoosier come aboard. My wife is a nurse also. We are located in Southern Indiana, just a couple of miles from the Caesar's Casino, downriver from Louisville.
                            We hope you will keep us up to date on the scene in Indy. Anytime you do a day trip this direction let us know, there are some interesting food stops in the Metro-Louisville area.

                              Hello everyone,
                              I wanted to hop in and introduce myself.
                              I am a frustrated traveller, my husband just retired from several decades of driving tractor-trailers so he's not interested in going anywhere farther than the couch for awhile.
                              I have 'lurked' and gotten some very positive feelings about the community of Roadfood so hope to make some new online friends and enjoy sharing your recipes, reviews and humor
                              the screenname is in honor of my favorit guitarist, Bill Cooley and his track on a cd.. and a slightly batty cat we had named Scooter..

                                            Sticky threads remain (stick) at the top of the list, even if there is no recent activity.

                                              I wanted to hop in and introduce myself.
                                              I am a frustrated traveller, my husband just retired from several decades of driving tractor-trailers so he's not interested in going anywhere farther than the couch for awhile.
                                              I have 'lurked' and gotten some very positive feelings about the community of Roadfood so hope to make some new online friends and enjoy sharing your recipes, reviews and humor
                                              the screenname is in honor of my favorit guitarist, Bill Cooley and his track on a cd.. and a slightly batty cat we had named Scooter..


                                              Welcome Skooterpye..
                                              You and Ort may have something in common with "Bill Cooley"..
                                              Dont be shy!

                                                  Hello to all. Stumbled on the site while searching for restaurant reviews for an upcoming trip. Read many post before I began posting myself last summer.

                                                  Hail from a small community in east central Mississippi. About 30 miles east of Oprah's home, 30 miles south of MS State, 30 miles west of Tommy Hamill's (captured in Iraq & escaped) home & 30 miles north of Neshoba County where 3 civil rights workers were killed by the KKK in the 60's. Also, north of Silver Star & Golden Moon casinos on the Choctaw Indian Reservation. Can see their light beams on a cloudy night from my front porch some 30 miles away.

                                                  Graduated from MSU & married an Ole Miss fan. Became a Rebel fan & follow the football team most everywhere. Spouse recently retired as the local high school principal. Now tutors math on the Indian reservation. I have worked for local post office 25 years & still enjoy it. Between us we know just about everybody in town. Have two sons who love to hunt. Therefore, deer meat is a staple at our house. I was almost grown before I heard it called "venison".

                                                  Love photography, travel & researching my next trip. Been out of the USA a couple of times, but main interest is the 50 states. Want to see them all. I lack eight (NV, CA, OR, WA, MN, AK, WI, ND) Hopefully, Santa will bring me tickets to somewhere new. Don't want to travel interstates unless I have to. Love the backroads. Of course, I want the best food while exploring & that's how I found roadfood.com.

                                                  Member of local Pilot Club - a service organization with emphasis on brain-related disorders. Find this very rewarding!!

                                                  Also enjoy cooking, collecting recipes & eating.

                                                  Favorite eating spots in my area -
                                                  1) Shorewood Inn - rural Neshoba County - best shrimp & oysters around
                                                  2) Ole Country Bakery - Brooksville - yummy treats made by Mennonite ladies
                                                  3) Little Dooey's BBQ - Starkville. However, Tuck's at Noxapater recently opened & may become my favorite if it remains as good as it is now. Time will tell
                                                  4) Lake Tiak-O'Khata in Louisville for their dressing & coconut cream pie.
                                                  5) A RIP - The Oak Tree Inn in Macon. Hated when it closed. Very classy food prepared by a chef with New Orleans' roots.

                                                    Wow, welcome, lostinthe mail!

                                                    There's a certain unintentional bias at Roadfood due to the fact that all its founders and associates are based in the east, but they've certainly discovered how good southern food is, and now it's your turn to head out to CA, NV, OR, WA, etc. and help them discover even more good places in the west by reporting back. Hope this happens soon.

                                                    Again, welcome, and best wishes.

                                                      I have made a few trips through central Miss, traveling from Tunica to the coast. Always nice folks and great food to be found there! Not to much said here about the food in your neck of the woods so thanks for list of your favs!

                                                        Hey, all. Just another foodie here. Looks like a helpful forum; hopefully I can provide some helpful information as well. I've waited tables, bartended, and cooked and line served, so I've seen my share!

                                                            Gidday there Folks,
                                                            Name is Mike and I come from the South Island of New Zealand, small town called Ashburton.
                                                            I've been lurking around this forum off and on for the last 6-9 months and thought I would bite the bullet and register.
                                                            I don't work in the restaurant industry per se, but I do work as an Electrician that services mainly restaurants, fast-food outlets and service stations (Gas-station).
                                                            Really good site you people have here, so good in fact that I usually have to have some food in front of me while viewing this site as it always makes me hungry.
                                                            Cheers Guys,
                                                            Mike Trump.
