Aiieeeee..... All this talk of food......

That's one of the things about getting older that sucks... I just can't eat like I used to be able to... And I LOVE to eat! Problem is, if I eat too much during the day, my stomach gives me the  :dispute: all night. My teammate and I frequently go to lunch together, and the guy has two hollow legs... I've never seen anyone eat so much and not weigh as much as a small pickup truck. He's stocky but not 'fat' - of course he's in his late 40s, so a tad younger than me.

Anyway, the wife and I went to Outback last night - I had bourbon-roasted salmon topped with bacon....Ohhhhh, yeah!  :heeheehee: :thumb_up:
If all is not lost, why can't I find it??  :thud:

The first fish I ever cleaned and filleted was a sea bass caught in the waters off the Virginia Beach coast. It was about 14 pounds, and I actually did a really good job of it. I was 11 at the time, and my whole family had some great fried fish that night. Our next door neighbor had caught the fish by fishing from one of the many wharves along the coast.


We also used to go crabbing in the Chesapeake Bay, where some of the best Blue Crab comes from. My best friends dad was great at making Crab Stew with just the right amount of hot pepper. I chowed down when he made that.


Oysters were plentiful in the area too, and fresh ones are an essential ingredient for Oyster Pie! Yum Yum!

That is something I learned about the East Coast.  CRABS are for eating, not cussin cause they took your bait!   Baltimorians say that Batimore, Md. is the crab capitol of the US.   I got to say, I believe it.   See, every state seems to have some kinda specialty they sell at their beer store drive thrus.   Baltimore is the only one that sells Blue Crabs the way we in Texas serve out BBQ sandwiches.  Only in Balto,  you got more variety.  Crabs by the dozen, $4.50, through $12.50 (BIG ones!), deviled crab, crab sandwiches, crab burgers, softshell crab sandwiches.  And it's all delicious.  In every back yard there's a picnic table.  On Crab Sunday, right after church, the folks stop off and get bags of crabs and a case of Budweiser, and a newspaper.  Get home and spread newspaper out, hand everyone a heavy handle butter knife, 1 crab and 1 beer.  Everyone.   Their crabs cook up spicy.  The Bud helps that.  Just like in Cajun country!   We all ate crabs till we were stuffed!  Mighty good eating!   That's for spring and summer, in autumn we leave em alone so they can replenish their numbers for next spring.  :o)  Mm GOOD!

I overeat maybe twice a year.  It only takes one full plate to get there now too!   But during holiday time, I love my turkey dinner, with all the trimmings!  I try to push that plate back, but I gotta at least sample everything once!  LOL!

That bourbon and bacon salmon sounds great.  :)

butter  bacon grease  lard   course  i do use  water  for  steaming  and  also  olive  oil  for  cooking  too  :Dragon:

Brother Fafnir, I gotta tell ya, if they put Bacon Drippings in a can and sold it, I'd buy some every darn week!   Most any meats and veggies are great by themselves yes, but cooking in a little bacon grease?  DEEEEELICIOUS!  :o)   Spuds!   Taters of every fried variety!  Balony!  Franks!  BEANS!!!  Pintos, Butterbeans, Kidney Beans, Black Beans, RED Beans!  BEANS!   Mmmmmmmm!   But leave the lard out of it, I have to now.  I look at lard and shortning and put on pounds!

Yep! Baltimore is right up there at the head of the bay. My middle sister lives there, and on the rare occasion I get to visit here, I come prepared to eat and feast on seafood done the best ways of the whole east coast! I like going to their fish markets and buying a couple pounds of fresh oysters, not those big gritty ones but the medium one that don't have much grit. Found a couple of colored pearls that way, as the best way to buy them is in their shells and still living, packed in the bay water. Now shelling live ones is harder to do because those little creatures are like Hercules trying to keep you out! But when I make my Oyster Pie, it's all worth it!

Aw man.  I LOVE seafood!   Batter Fried OYSTERS!  Raw oysters, steamed spicy clams.  Fish of all kinds, but I don't want blackened fish at all any more.  All that pepper just hides the flavor of the fish.   So many other flavorful ways to fix fish up.  I haven't had octopus, though while stationed on the ship we did get squid twice.  And it was actually very good.  We were so fortunate to have a great cook who absolutely loved cooking for other people.  Ship life was perfect for him.  He would get up real early sometimes just to bake up some special breads for the guys on the mid watch.  He even carried a basket of it round the ship to us.  Then I found out he was from Chicago-Detroit area.  I knew nothing about the area other than it was on the Great Lakes near Canada.  He smiled big and said "I will treat you to home cooking Chicago style!"  Folks seem to have different menus from place to place.  Houston seems mostly about Steak houses and BBQ with a healthy dash of Asian and Cajun in there.  Chicago though, lots of pot meals, like stews, soups, gravies on meats dishes.  I wonder if that is where SOS originated?  White creamy gravy with meat(s) in it over toast.  Like the Brits Beans n Toast for breakfast.   Everywhere I've been in my life there has been a lot of wonderful cooking I've sampled.   
It would be great to take a vacation and go up to Chicago area just to see what all is there.   But, I'd also have to win some of that lottery to afford a trip!  LOL!
