    Martin Strayer has a pretty amazing list of artists that he has run sound for on tour including Joe Cocker, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Page & Plant, Soundgarden, the Eagles, Dixie Chicks, R. Kelly, Nora Jones, Billy Joel, Tina Turner, Cher, and so many more. I had no idea he was a San Antonio...

    Hang Over Cures ????

    Advil and lots of water as a preemptive strike before bed. Advil and water when you wake up after a long sleep. Then, hit it hard with some sugar and electrolytes...gatorade works. If that stays down you should be golden but a nice, greasy fried breakfast should set you up for success. ;)

    The Merits of Cast Iron

    Well, I mean...we're TDPRI! The tele is one of the oldest electric guitar designs. We're talking about cast iron. Other recent posts on the forum are discussing medium and large format film photography equipment! I tend to go to Instagram and Tim Tok for my daily dose of "quick and...

    The Merits of Cast Iron

    Variety is the spice of life! I have a gas cooktop and a separate single burner induction in the kitchen. Pans range across cast iron, coated cast iron, stainless, non-stick aluminum. Outside I have gas, pellet and charcoal. Kind of like guitars. There are a few that can do everything and...

    Wait, it's not a the holy grain tone pan material? ;)

    Excellent point! The one that cooks the most, calls the shots on the cookware! :)

    The Merits of Cast Iron

    We have both a 12" and a Dutch Oven from them that we have used the heck out of for 20 years and they are terrific. They fry, bake, deep fry, braise...endless. My griddle is from Lodge.

    Favorite Cooking Show

    I have the Barefoot Contessa cook book, for what that's worth. In terms of "shows", I don't actually have cable so... On YouTube I watch: Joshua Weissman, Adam Ragusea, How to BBQ Right, Mad Scientist BBQ. Others come and go. Uncle Roger is a riot.

    The Merits of Cast Iron

    Growing up, we didn't have cast iron in the house. The only fry pan was stainless. It lasted forever and, with enough oil/butter, things could be prevented from sticking. When I graduated from college, I thought I wanted hard anodized aluminum was all the rage at the time. It...

    We do something very similar but go with chicken thighs. They are very forgiving of over cooking and don't dry out as much. :)

    I've been playing a lot of Monopoly Junior with my 3 and 6 year old lately. The good news is that rules drive things to a much more rapid conclusion than the original... :)

    Pasta salad is a year-round thing at our house! The basic recipe remains the same but some of the toss-ins are "seasonal". I make a batch with about 3lb of Tri-color twists and the kids roll through it in a few days...

    The latter sounds fantastic for a hot day! I'm always struggling for things to make on a hot August day in South Texas given I found my home here later in life.

    How Many Pedals Do We Really Need?

    I've stayed at 9 or fewer pretty much my whole life (I'm 42 which also happens to be "the answer").

    This is almost exactly how I did it. I add the sesame oil and green onion late for fragrance and garnish. The pan/wok started with peanut oil, shallots and garlic.

    I went with the MSG but not the oyster or fish sauce. Kids ate it and the cats were circling anyway but I may grab some for the next batch, anyway!

    I'm a big fan of quick and wholesome meals that we can throw together in a quantity that satisfies a family with 5 kids, two of which are hungry teens. On this forum, we've already had a thread about the merits of pasta salad which is a stalwart at Casa de Gibbly... Something new for us...

    Inflatable Christmas yard decorations

    Great description. Part of the appeal around our house is that they pack away small vs. those old, large, hard plastic ones of yesteryear.

    Feeling the pressure of the Christmas crush yet?

    All gifts bought, all but ~2 have arrived, and are wrapped up. We went light on outdoor decorations as things were just a madhouse around here since Thanksgiving…looks like a lot of people in our neighborhood did less, too. The last daunting task is the assembly of one large doll house. The...
