Re: Floods

Flood warning notices taped to residences bordering Starkweather Creek today. Some water in OB Sherry Park starting Friday night, a bit more on Sunday. The ducks are enjoying it.

Re: Have you voted yet?

Mid 700's at Whitehorse around 4 p.m. Steady stream of voters coming in at the time. Construction on Schenk St resulted in parking and entering the school on Tulane.

Re: Sun Prairie explosion

Did the fireman die in the explosion or in fighting the fire? This hasn't been disclosed to my knowledge. I believe that he and other responders arrived to evacuate people due to the gas leak, and were killed/injured by the explosion they were trying to protect others from. https://host.madison.com...

Re: Favorite breakfast spots

I like Monty's but #1 seems high. I agree about Manna, good food in a run down place. Also agree with Daisy. It's mediocre and the parking lot is so small it seems like they mainly want people who walk or bike there. As one of those people who walk to Daisy (even though Monty's is closer) I'll have...

Re: Lake Edge Seafood Company

Bought eight scallops last week. About one pound, thirty bucks. They were indeed impeccable. Best scallops we've found around here both for size and taste. We'll do that again. The rest of the fish in the case looked top notch too. Also bought the calamari appetizer and it was pretty good but at th...

Re: Lake Edge Seafood Company

Has anyone just gone there to buy fish and cook it at home? I didn't buy anything from the counter but the quality and prices seemed good. That said, I was underwhelmed with the selection. There really wasn't all that much in the fish counter. They had roughly the same amount of items as the fish c...

Re: Cooking jags

My latest jag has been breakfast skillets, as often as not for dinner (because the idea of foods only being appropriate at certain times of day has never made a lick of sense to me.) But I have a question for my fellow cooks: do you pre-cook your taters before frying them? Most recipes I've seen su...

Whenever I make a dish with cilantro I can't help but think of Prof Wags and his disdain for the herb.
