    Does anyone have any recs/suggestions etc for using a salt block/plate to cook? Or is this some trend that is highly nonforvm approved?

    My g/f has one and we're experimenting with it tonight.

    so my gf and i are hosting a potluck for a small group of friends - maybe 10 people max, although likely less - and i was wondering what to make. bear in mind the following caveats:

    a. i am horrifically poor right now, so i don't want to spend $70 on fresh shrimp.
    b. most people will be bringing prepared food they bought 20 minutes before the pot luck from kroger/cheap wine
    c. i am bad at cooking

    anyway.. was thinking about maybe baking a dessert? or doing a couple fresh pizzas. but open to most suggestions!

    Teger, just make some Tiramisù. Posted a recipe a while back in WDYELNFD.




    So.. lobster cold or warm? If it's your first time, would you either take half a lobster or lobster meat already removed from the shell?

    I got some "Portuguese" sausage last night since they were out of hot italian sausage.
    It is in links and looks about like italian sausage although I suspect it may be more similar to a chorizo.

    What should I do with it? What sort of meal should go with it.

    From this angle it looks like the ass end of a moray eel. What's the head look like?

    Teger, do you have a crock pot or a dutch oven and a stove? You could get an inexpensive cut of beef and simmer it with seasonings, onions, carrots, etc. and make a tasty and cheap main course. Then again, for some reason, I'm expecting most of your friends to be vegans...

    you can probably get a decent goose from D'Artagnan.

    n00b question, but can I do chicken stock in a slow cooker? If so what setting and how long?

    I just got one and don't know the temperature equivalent of low-high on the cooker to the stovetop (e.g. simmer on low on stove is equal to low or high on the slow cooker?)

    goose is a little tricky because it can be very greasy. roast it pretty much like a duck.
