You're welcome. JP is one of my heroes and I learned a lot watching him on TV and reading his books.

I actually modified the recipe a bit, adding a shallot and using skin on thighs as SO likes crispy chicken skin.

Had a former employee over for a visit. A single young man..we asked him what he would like and he said he couldn't afford big rib eyes since he left the deli, so we carved off a one pounder for him..he ate it all, plus all of the trimmin's. three corn on the cob, duck fat potatoes, mushrooms, peach cobbler..he's out on the back deck now with gf having a cafe latte..I'm done..they are smokers..

I had a big lunch in an Exxon station.

Well, sort of. The right half of the building is an Exxon station, and the left half is The Depot Cafe.

A friend and I went to lunch, and had chicken fried steak. I had mashed potatoes and fried okra with mine. Very tasty, and it came with a really great bread-roll -- no butter needed, it was that good on its own.

That was a day's worth of food in one meal. So tonight, I am grazing on fruits, cheese and crackers.

If one follows F&W or Bon Apetit, gas station food is all the rage now! Barely an issue goes by, it seems, without at least one article about it.

Can’t say I’ve found any gas station food in LV worth writing about, although Mark tells me there’s one on the east side that has a mean menudo on the weekend.

I have lived in my current town since 1995, and never went to this place before. It got a write up in D Magazine, so I gave it a try.

It is amazing to me how many good places to eat are right under my nose, and I don't know it. You have to seek them out.

If someone asked me what I’d choose if I could only have one thing to eat the rest of my life, this, or pizza, id have a very hard time deciding!

Grab a BA from the mid 90's and one from a year ago and compare the recipe index. That mag has gone to crap.

I receive their magazine, but it’s kinda reading for the loo. I get most of their recipes on Twitter. Some very good ones, too, but you’re right, good ones are becoming scarce.
