Ooh, add sauerkraut and grainy mustard to the beer to step it up a notch!

We're going out for dinner tonight to our favorite Mexican-inspired restaurant. I'll probably have the open-faced tamale with short ribs cooked in mole sauce. I might even order a side of jalapeņo mac and cheese because I love it so much

So what pray tell is Polpo? Mr. Google only leads me to restaurants by that name.

GG, I may just have to fly back to your neck of the woods again, as you've mentioned this dish several times and my mouth always waters over the thought of it. It's the dish with whole kernel corn in the masa, correct?

We're having big salads with some of the chicken from last night on top, and the rest of the giant artichokes. I think I almost like artichokes frosty cold better than hot.

I think Craig means pulpo, AKA octopus.

It's Spanish for octopus.

When we snorkel, we never tell the waitstaff when we see pulpo underwater! They're very popular in ceviche, but are such beautiful, intelligent creatures. Unfortunately, they're also delicious.

Thanks Dawg. I like octopus, although I don't think I'd want to prepare one.

I made Natchitoches meat pies. My grandma used to make them, but I never made them before. They were excellent.

Me too. I love them cold. I don't use butter on them that way so I figure it's a win-win.
