But it's falling-off-the-bone tender and very tasty.

Help! Favourite griddle pan's knackered!

when i was cooking my viet beef the sugar in the marinade welded itself to my favourite griddle pan.i bought it 10 years ago in ikea for only £10 & it's probably my most used pan & WAS completely non stick til last night!
i've soaked it overnight and got most of the gunge off but just can't shift the rest.
it's been a brilliant pan & it's about all i managed to salvage from my divorce so i don't want to bin it.
any ideas chaps?

call your ex and hold the pan up to the phone?

that kind of abrasiveness should scour just about anything...

thank you, thank you, i'll be here all week. try the veal.

happy anniversary, taxy. nice butt, steve. (good thing i got those two straight).



we had takeout last night from 2 different places. not intentionally, at first.

we started out by ordering takeout from a local italian joint. i knew there was going to be a problem right away when the kid on the phone couldn't pronounce several words, one being parmesan. when i asked him to read me the daily specials, he read most of them but just mumbled the words he didn't know. i kinda laughed and asked him what the hell he just said, and he read the specials again, just mumbling the "difficult" words again. i thought he was either kidding or an idiot, so i didn't push the issue and order any specials.

we ordered shrimp marinara, a children's chicken parm, and a scungili fra diavolo, all with sides of spaghetti, all with side salads.

20 minutes later when i pulled into the parking lot, i received a call on my cell phone from the kid stating that they were out of scungilli. i continued to talk to the kid while trying to figure out something else to order as i walked into the restaurant and up to the counter. the kid saw me and put his hand up to gesture that he was on the phone and i would have to wait.

as i stood in front of him just 3 feet away, we continued our conversation on the phone/cell phone about what other seafood specials they had. i even went as far as to tell him that a few of the words were misspelled on the specials board, and that a table by the door was trying to get the attention of a waiter or staff person for something.

he just looked puzzled and never caught on.

we hung up, and he finally asked me what i wanted. so, in order to not have to wait another 20 minutes and bring home cold food to my wife and son, i just picked up the shrimp, chicken parm, spaghetti, and a salad and went home. unfortunately, i had to correct the bill since he tried to charge me $8 for a side salad.

i happened to see the owner/chef on the way out the door and he explained to me that there was something going on with korea beginning whaling operations again, and it's somehow affecting his ability to import conch (scungilli), so he probably won't have it on the menu for a while.

i didn't bother to mention the scungilli that he had working behing the counter. he'll find out soon enough, i'm sure.


so, after i got home, i dropped off the food and ordered an open sliced steak sandwich with frizzled onions and fries from another restaurant up the block.

delays aside, everything was very good and fairly entertaining to boot.
