Whats that got to do with anything?


quote from your original post about Catie Girls:"(and possibly the world’s) first upscale comfort food dining experience. "

Now go ahead, read that carefully, take your time. and tell me what that has to do with "anything."

See, the "first" would have to come BEFORE restaurants that have been doing it for 25 years.

Hope that clear things up for ya'




Geeez what is your problem????? That's on their menu not a quote from me.

Ahh, now a personal attack, implying I have a "problem." I never said it was your quote. Does it really matter whose quote it is? I was only trying to further the comfort food discussion by naming other restaurants that have been doing upscale comfort food for years. But you persist in your "what is your point/what is your problem" attacks on anything I say that happens to disagree with your views.

From an owners view I liked one place I ran.
We offered fresh cooked turkey breast and medium rare RB. We had the best "hot shots" in town as the fresh meat was carved warm to order.
The left over would be sliced for a turkey club and IB/french dip. It usually worked out perfrctly. I would actually keep the left over for a 3rd day as a back up it I ran out of either.
Then use the remainder for soups. Great food cost control/
We would have the required(in the 80's) 8oz burgers with choice of topping.
One or 2 blue plates specials and of course fish on friday.
Fill out the rest w/ salads, hot and cold sandwiches and we had a winner.

Been thinking what would I like to eat if it was my last meal.
Egg salad sandwiches, Salmon salad sandwiches, both cooled to 40F before serving. Served with ice cold Coke.
Memories of childhood.

I do every week.
I buy them fresh from a farmer.
Worst thing I found was they are to big and don't freeze well after cooking, but still good steamed to heat a few days later.
So I've taken to cutting them up and cooking one piece at a time.
I just cook them in the oven and have found low temp long time is best.

How often do people cook turkey at home?

 
We do 4-5 turkeys a year, so at holidays we do something else. Some smoked -some baked. Love turkey sandwich's on homemade sourdough bread.
There use to be a restaurant in FL. that they had Thanksgiving Dinner everyday, but the economy has taken it's toll on that one.
