Why? If you do they may think you are mocking them and take revenge by spitting in your dinner

Usually all steak houses serve baked potatoes. Ask for one and pick your own toppings. That way you know what you're eating. Add a side of steamed veggies and maybe a salad and you should enjoy a vegetarian meal.

Nope. Sorry. Maybe in France, but I've eaten plenty of them here in the US, and have never heard it pronounced that way. At least not around here.

But then again, you Brits don't know how to pronounce to-MAY-to, either.

Well, I had the pleasure of ordering ( with correct pronunciation) and eating the lyonnaise. It was very good. Nothing unique as far as new tastes go. Actually, When I make home fries, its kinda very similar to the way I prepare mine. And wasnt too greasy too. Glad I ordered it.

Larry, I'm glad you tried the potatoes and that you liked them.

Me too. Most of the other selections were things I've had in the past. Being far away from home, I wanted to try as many new things as possible. My biggest problem is, when I find something I like in a restaurant, I will order that same thing every time I go to that particular restaurant ( I make my wife order something different so I can taste it ) But being in a different city with no familiar restaurants, I can order anything I want, and is the perfect time to try something new. This week was corn filled ravioli, green tomato marmalade with deep fried Pimento cheese balls, grilled green tomatoes ( among other veggies), cold broccoli salad with baby capers, garlic and shallots and southern cheddar grits.

Wow. Some really interesting stuff!

Green tomato marmalade intrigues me. What was in it? (Besides green tomatoes.)

Honestly, Im not sure
At first, i didnt know what it was , cause it came as a side to the pimento cheese balls. so i dipped my finger in it and it was sweet. then i fished around for the pieces ( of what I thought was fruit) and at them. Also sweet, with kind of a firm crunchy like texture. So now my mind was trying to figure out what i was eating , grapes ?? firm plum ?? i couldnt quite make it out, so i looked at the menu again and saw the green tomato marmalade. Once I knew what it was, i was able to kinda taste the green tomato in it. Still have no Idea how to make it though . Next year, when i have an abundance of green tomatoes again, ill experiment with recipes.

Me too.

I dont travel much out of the North East, So I took this trip as a learning experience from climbing out from under my rock. I mostly learn from internet, cooking shows, reading ... Although this is not an exotic trip for most, for me it was a whole new experience, and out of my eliment. Had a great time. Actually wish I had more time to stop off at more places along the way. Saw a sign from a Pecan farm, advertising all kind of pecan goodies. I kick myself for not getting off that exit and checking it out. Not to mention all the peach signs for pies, jams, ice cream .... I figure what better place to check it out than Georgia. But I was on a tight schedule and had limited time to explore.
