    Two years later, I FINALLY made the pickled jalapeno recipe posted described above by the Bouchards: http://www.foodeeze.com/2009/09/pickled-jalapeno-peppers.html SUPER simple and really killer. I need this to be spicier so next time I'll put in some hotter peppers with the jalapenos. Cheers!
  2. Rubber stamp impression of this quote has been ordered.
  3. The Big Green Egg is fuggin' rad! We keep one out at the cabin and cook 3/4 of our meals on it! Among countless other things, you can do a KILLER pizza in 5 minutes or less. Nice, thin, bubbly crust...the thing gets like 700 degrees inside or something nutty like that!
  4. These sizzlas almost played the HO back in '08. Run a check slutz-towns.
  5. Rumours abound that they are also coming to Calgary...
  6. It gets a little "hot" near or after it's date. once it's a week or so past it will start to burn your throat a bit. Nice little cheese for sure. I can say I'm not a fan of the "with herbs" or "plain" version of this cheese that are also available. You just don't get that acidic/spicy taste that you receive with the ash covered one.

    That is indeed his art. We met the founder/brewer of Flying dog many years ago. Guy seemed like an acid casualty or something! His wife did most of the talking/translating as he mumbled around. He then busted out a totally COHERENT (though inexplicable) rant on dinosaurs! Nice brews though..
  8. Don't forget the cheese curds! I friggin love tossin some fresh curds into the spicy quagmire instead of the typical shredded cheddar/jack. Toasted cashews are also pretty sweet!
  9. Accepting offers on Phaneuf!! Let's hear 'em...
  10. I'd be up for mixing it up a little in terms of a league tweak. That being said, based on last year's results, I can use all the help I can get. One argument for Hal's idea is that it takes a little thought when drafting or making free agent picks for guys like this (Robidas). Its obvious that you want Crosby or OV or any top ten scorer for that matter. I don't think most managers will change their approach to drafting. Being a basement dweller last year, I would have loved to be able to sneak a little "depth" onto my team by being creative. These types of stats can let a manager be more creative instead of just sorting available players based on points only. Whatever, I just wanna play, man.
  11. If you're into beer in a big way try the Hopleaf Make sure you get an Italian Beef sammy. Not very highbrow but a STAPLE. Just ask for it "dipped" and "hot". Enough said. Try Portillo's, Fontana's (also have other good sammies). Uno's or Giordano's for the best deep dish. Try Charlie Trotter's
  12. This gal has a rocking page. I've followed her steps and the finished product was awesome. Time consuming folding those little bastards though... http://userealbutter.com/2007/10/04/chinese-dumplings-and-potstickers-recipe/
  13. Go see his doctor...he's a good man...and thorough. Happy Birthday you sassy mutherfucker!!!
  14. Last time we were out towards Tofino we stayed south in Ucluelet. It seemed a lot quieter and away from all the tourist nonsense of Tofino. I think it was about 30-40 minutes by car from Tofino with all the killer beaches along the way. I think we stayed at the C & N Hostel. There were two couples traveling so we each booked a private room at the hostel. When we were there we partied with a bunch of Germans for a few nights and had a blast! Very affordable and clean.
  15. Cool! Have you had the Midnight Sun Espresso Stout from Yukon Brewing? They use the coffee you speak of...A nice jug of beer.

    There is a guy here in Calgary who brings up the nice, HUGE avocados from somewhere South. They are the real deal and HUGE. Not the tiny little Haas variety we are so used to in North Amer.
  17. We go for the Salt Spring Island coffee. Pretty much always been happy with their beans. I find the flavour to be much more developed, smoother and balanced when compared to the Kicking Horse brand but that's just my taste speaking.. You can buy from them online and they have "mirco" lots for sale...specialty beans in limited quantities. Another AWESOME place for beans from out west is Oso Negro Coffee out of Nelson, BC. The Prince of Darkness blend is killer. You can also order online direct. I would really recommend ordering a pound or two from these guys.
  18. WAS vs MTL = WAS in 6 NJ vs PHI = NJ in 5 BUF vs BOS = BOS in 7 PIT vs OTT = PIT in 5 SJ vs COL = COL in 6 CHI vs NAS = CHI in 4 VAN vs LA = VAN in 5 PHX vs DET = DET in 5
  19. Maybe someone can recall this better than I, but wasn't he talking about this at great length on Spectacle last year?? Seemed like an interesting endeavour..
  20. Please don't send either of them back here (Alberta). It took us this long to get rid of them...
