If you plant your squash or other prickly vine plants between the corn rows coons will not bother your corn. They don't like the prickly stuff on their feet.
Hi Jaxson! Survivor will be here before we know it.
The raccoons sure love my tomatoes!! And they have an opossum friend! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they stay out of my pumpkin patch because I would cry.

Oops you are right I didn't take 5 acres into consideration sorry.

But any way, I just wanted to sit at the kitchen table and share some of the foods we had at my Grandson's B-Day party Saturday and some of our fun. Is this where I should do this now?

Lacey and crazy, did y'all just change the name and not tell me????? Well, off to research time and find you.
Well, let me know if you find it, cause I'm lost too Haven't been on all weekend and everything changes.

We want to hear about your party and the food so hope you find it quick I'm still looking

I loathe grocery shopping, if only it was as fun as eating !


The only time I don't mind doing it is when we are on holidays and sampling foreign delights. Foreign supermarkets can be great fun , especially if you don't speak one word of the language.....

I wanted to ask everyone here something about French food. I am French and of course to me there is nothing even remotely exotic about French food, it is really quite basic.

I was surprised recently when an American friend of mine told me there was no way he could ever drag his father to a French restaurant ( I had recommended they tried Anthony Bourdain's "Les Halles" in NYC whilst visisting the city) as he hated foreign food. It made me wonder whether many Americans do view French food as something a bit weird and outlandish ?!?

French food is in many ways like real regional Italian food and I always thought Americans loved Italian food . Some French food is very fine but most of it is basically a lot of excellent and very varied peasant dishes and I never really thought about it being odd in any way .

This has got to be talked about once and for all---I am now hearing that I am the reason for these two food threads, my dinner thread and the kitchen thread were closed. Supposedly I was complaining to the mods...wrong!! Baretta you will probably delete this post but if you do please make a sticky as to the reasons these threads were closed so maybe we can go back to happily posting once again!! I do not appreciate being wrongly accused!!

I don't think of it as odd either, but I enjoy a variety of cuisines so I may not be the majority. I know several people that won't even branch out into Italian food.

I will be in NYC next May so I'll add Les Halles to my list. I already have Hubert Keller's Sleek in St. Louis and Burger Bar in Las Vegas on my must visit list. I will be in St. Louis in the next month or so. Can't wait! However, I will not be sampling the Fleur Burger! LOL I love watcing Hubert on PBS and now on Top Chef Master's. I'm hoping that he and Rick Bayless are the final two.
