1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I garnish salads with them. I've never cooked them, but it's something worth trying I suppose. In the salad or just as a garnish, they offer a tiny crunch and a slightly sweet and floral (lol obviously) flavor in the mouth. Just ever so slightly bitter as well.

    Your parents live in the Nap, right? Its funny - my grandpa (who lived next door to us on the southside) had about a football field sized garden. Corn, tomatoes, green beans, et al... But you never appreciate what you have at your finger tips till you dont have it.

    Nah, they live in a tiny town a little ways north of Lafayette. My lady friend lives in Naptown though. But you're absolutely right about the garden.

    Well, some of you may know that my pops is an avid homebrewer. He recently put two of his beers into the Indiana State Fair Homebrew Competition and got the results back. He didn't win, but his DIPA (he named it Cousin Pliny, obviously after the original) got in the top 5. He was awarded a "mini best in show" meaning he won his flight and advanced to the last round. He got either 4th or 5th, because only 5 beers advanced and they only award 1-3. Anyway, he got a really good score, a 44/50, which is described as "Excellent (38-44)- Beers in this style may have no flaws but may be missing the intangibles of a world class beer."
    Pretty cool to see my pops have some hard work rewarded.

    I am craving braised oxtails today.

    I have my 20# box of duck I need to process. Maybe Thursday night, that way I can make a little confit this weekend. [​IMG]

    That's pretty cool. Maybe one day his son, if he pulls his finger out of his ass, could feature his dad's beers at a restaurant he owns or is an EC at. Or... maybe he could feed berkshire pigs the dad's beer...

    I love them too, but I just can't eat food like that in this heat.

    P.S. I had my yearly veal chop last night. So delicious.

    Nice dude, very nice.

    Everytime I see something I put on the menu sell really well/really fast, I get a bonar so large it's probably a health code violation. [​IMG]
