    Hibachi flambe is still a popular preparation. Along with the steaming onion volcano.

    Telling tales on yourself? I was tipsy after that one glass. I think Hubby and I might have trouble killing the bottle.

    Teppanyaki restaurants are the only places that I can think of that actively flambe in front of the patrons. However, I was able to get Bananas Foster prepared in front of me at a restaurant in Paso Robles. It certainly made for a good impression on the date I was with.

    I love the steaming onion volcano though. Those places can be pretty entertaining.
    And that concludes staff’s presentation...

    Yeah, I think teppanyaki or upscale are the only.places willing to light your meal on fire in your presence.

    Sadly or not this is me sober. Drunk Dandy is a lot louder, lewder, and fairly obnoxious.

    I spray mine down with som Lysol every so often. I also do not hesitate to replace once a pillow is past it's prime.

    Every couple of weeks. I just jam a couple in the washer, and then toss them in the dryer.

    Sorry I was gone for a while. Eating caesar salad and drinking the rest of the wine. Yep, it was me. Not Dandy, not Zoning Goddess. But if the shoe fits . . .

    Not sure I want to meet the drunk Dandy. The obnoxious part is what is putting me off.

    Great idea friend. Why don't we try to have lots of conversations today.

    You mean just between you and I? Or do we want others to join in?

    Oh we should have others join in. If it is just you and I, that would be weird.

    First order of business. How do we go about celebrating milestones? Every 50 posts I think we should all repeat the same thing... maybe BOOGADEE, or FATPANTS!

    Do I feel good enough to make the annual pilgrimage to the Kalamazoo event, and pester Maister while there?
    FWIW I'm not performing this year
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
