Food poisoning presents a formidable enemy to all cooks, especially home canned things. We cooked the life out of home canned beans until they flopped over when someone picked one up with a fork of fingers. It was hard for me to just heat them to a hard boil and at the last minute before serving. Old habits die hard.

When I took Amtrak out west a year ago Oct., I ate lunch at a Chipotles. A week later, the same restaurant was the site of a food poisoning outbreak that made national news. Whew! I don't blame you, Spud, for being concerned.

I almost never eat at a restaurant or fast-food place anymore, mainly due to the price, plus I'm a little concerned about food poisoning. 

Pizza Hut pizza is my favorite also, although one of them gave me a mediocre tasting pizza the last time I went there.  Many years ago, when I lived in the bay area, I found a pizza place in San Francisco that had the best tasting pizza I've ever eaten, but can't remember the name of it.

BB, actually I liked that sandwich place in Longview a lot.  I wish there were some like that here.

There's a great Thai place on 3rd Ave. downtown Portland called Esan's that's excellent. Planet Thai on 134th in Vancouver is really good too.

Carl, in Chicago, my favorite eateries were:  Boca di Beppo, and Little Home Vietnam, a tiny place on Damon I think near Advocate Hospital (?), and a Thai place that I forget.  We used to get groceries at Aldi all of the time, that was Ning's favorite but they don't have Aldi here.

In Portland my favorite places are Pizzacatto and in Beaverton, south of Portland, a Korean noodle place that stretches their noodles by hand.  Also a Korean place in Portland at an Asian Food Plaza.  We almost never eat out.

Randy, I try to stay away from the big food chains as well.  However, about two weeks ago I was out running errands which took much longer than expected and I ended up stopping at Wendy's Hamburgers for a late lunch.  They were always my favorite fast food burger chain.  I haven't been to one in probably five years or more.  I'm glad to say it was a nice enjoyable treat.

Now that I'm not on the road traveling all the time, I can eat much healthier these days, so I don't mind a little guilty pleasure now and then.

While I hate supporting big chains, Pizza Hut's pizza is my favorite. After fasting for a blood test yesterday, I splurged and ate their lunch buffet. Yes, the pizza was good, but only luke warm at best. I didn't complain, but commented when the waitress asked the usual "How is everything?" The manager came over out of curiosity, I suppose. Anyway, he took a dollar off my bill. Big whoop.

Yes Randy, microwave ovens are indeed great for reheating leftovers!  My microwave get 10 times the use of my range.  I even cook some things in it at times.  Potatoes and other veggies do very well.

Comment by Randall Smith on December 6, 2016 at 7:46am

Yeah, my freezer never seems to empty out, and it's 15 cubic feet. I actually made lasagna about 10 days ago and used ricotta added to my cottage cheese.

Spud, aren't microwaves great for reheating leftovers?!
