Raub, that's funny. I've been to this place about a million times and have never looked at their website until today. To be fair, it is crowded,, but for a reason...it's really good...

I usually do Brussels sprouts with pine nuts, butter, and garlic. Walnuts sound interesting. How do you prepare them?
Pine Nuts are very useful...I even put them in my marinara sauce for spaghetti and lasagna!

I really don't like turkey unless it is Boars head salsalito turkey for sandwiches.

Had enough last month to last well, a year.

not sure mom braises them but what else is involved I honestly couldn't say. I'm usually more involved in libations.

Vegemite and Chinese Mustard, Oh My

Oh forgot to mention as part of the cheeky appetizers, we put out a jar of Vegemite surrounded by crackers.

For those of you who have never tried Vegemite, it's an acquired taste and if you have never partaken, the flavor is beef bouillon granules mixed with old axle grease. The taste sticks to your tongue and interior of your mouth for several days emitting the fowel flavor.

So years ago our rugby club, Norfolk Blues, would have parties and we would position the Vegemite dish with crackers next to an egg roll platter with a bowl of Chinese mustard in the center. The next step was to wait for the catch with all that bait laid out.

Sure enough. an unsuspecting person would try the Vegemite with a peanut butter size spread on a cracker and spit it out as fast as possible. Then next step would be the well if that didn't work out try an egg roll... and then there was the Chinese mustard. Well the flames were burning as the egg roll bite came out as fast as it went in.

Since this was a big joke for me and my good friend Jody Walker, we are on a list somewhere to get extra special treatment when we arrive in hell someday.

Happy Holidays and remember that centuries ago the royalty had food tasters.

No Vegemite. Marmite in this household.

Lucky for me I'm the only one who eats it!

I think I need to be sold on that one a little better. Besides, that duck looks like something my dog regurgitated up.

You should bring some to the next rally and see what others think. I have sort of acquired a taste for it, but use a tooth pick to spread a very very very small amount on a cracker.

We would get a lot of mileage when someone who has never tried it goes for a big glob.

Tasting?

When playing on an "international" rugby side called the revenge in the DC area for 2 seasons, the other second row was Australian who would eat hefty portions almost every day. That was my first tasting experience in 1982.

Jonesy could open up a rally tasting for everyone including the kids...

Would love to see Anna and Caroline have a taste all the while saving a big glob for Uncle Douglas!

All the cameras would be ready.
