A plate of food on a table

When ever I make a trip to Florida my primary destination is always Clearwater Beach. Clearwater Beach is a small, white sand beach about 23 miles west of Tampa. One of the greatest attractions there for me is the Outback Steakhouse on Mandalay Avenue.

I smoke and therefor am very choosy in my selection of restaurants. Florida is a smoke-free state, meaning that you can’t smoke in restaurants and Outback Steakhouse is no exception. One of the special features of the Outback Steakhouse is they provide an outside patio for people wishing to smoke. I love to sit outside and enjoy the cool breeze and the smell of the ocean while I eat. For those wishing to catch up on the news or watch their favorite sports team play as they sling their favorite Tennis Racquets, don’t be discouraged, there is televisions outside on the patio as well.

The service is just fantastic. Never have I met a more courteous wait staff. I am an avid tea drinker and drink glass after glass at any restaurant but when I’m there the sweet tea at the Outback Steakhouse is just about the best around. Not too sweet but just right. Yet, my glass is never empty, which is no small feat. They are continually checking in on you to see of you need anything and are happy to oblige almost any request. They even open the door and greet you as you enter and exit. It just don’t get any better than that.

The place is also very clean, almost spotless, the cleanest place I’ve ever been in. Even the bathrooms look like they were just installed the day before. The only draw back is the lack of screens around the patio. At night, with the lights and televisions on, the bugs can get a little annoying, but the staff was again very helpful.

The food is just about the best I have ever eaten. The steaks are perfectly seasoned, juicy, and cooked to perfection, unlike the normal run-of-the-mill, dried up steak you get at other steakhouses. Of the maybe 14 or so times I have dinned there, my steak was perfect each time. The steak dinner comes with your choice of two of the following: Walkabout Soup, Aussie Chips, Signature Side Salad, Dressed Baked Potato, Steamed Veggies, Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Steamed Broccoli, Sweet Potato or Fresh Green Beans all of which are prepared just lovely, and an unlimited supply of fresh baked bread.

I always choose the Signature Side Salad and the Dressed Baked Potato. Both of which arrive at your table fully prepared and ready to eat. The salad dressing and baked potato toppings are already on your salad and potato saving you precious seconds when you are ready to dive in. No detail is overlooked. They think of just about everything they can to make your visit a memorable one. The Outback Steakhouse of Clearwater, Florida is overall a great restaurant, plan on stopping by the next time you are in the area.

A close up of a plate of food

When you have a taste for Mexican food and your pallet wants “good” Mexican food, Taco Bell usually doesn’t make the top of too many lists. In actuality Taco Bell offers a diverse array of so-called Mexican dishes that is sure to please any Mexican food enthusiast and hey, it’s cheaper and faster than the La Mexican place down the street. It’s not as fancy and don’t make as much of an impression on your date as the real thing but hey, did I mention it was cheaper!

Upon first impressions, the Taco Bell of Middlesboro looks like your average fast food place, the outside is nice and recently been painted and done-over. Once on the inside though, your thoughts will change. The place is a mess, there is trash in the floor from trash cans that are only emptied once a day, dirty tables everywhere and one of the nastiest drink stations I have even been witness to. To top it all off the ice maker and drink dispenser is out of service 9 times out of 10, leaving you to stand in line waiting on a refill.

The food is really quite good. Their Big Bell Value Menu offers several choices around or under $1 and, as the name implies, is a real value for your money. Should you not want lettuce or sour cream or just want to be different, they are happy to oblige. I have yet to make a special order and get it wrong. You do have to watch when going through the drive-thru that you are given your drink or any side orders such as sauce.

The Cumberland Valley District Health Department gave this restaurant a 72% or C grade for sanitation. The grade was poor due to all the trash left in the dinning area as well as with the problems with the drink dispenser and some problems with the grill area. As long as you go through the drive through and get your order, where as you won’t be able to see all the trash in the dinning room, you should be fine as far as food quality and cleanliness is concerned, as a follow-up inspection left them with a sanitation score of 92%.

Just don’t expect the serve yourself drink station to be up and running any time soon, they seem to think it’s not all that important of a thing to repair. As for service speed, they are pretty fast on the inside but a little on the slow side when you go through the drive-thru. They seem to want to take care of any inside customers before they take your drive-thru order. The employees are pretty friendly and will gladly be of any assistance they can, which after all the mess, is a plus!

A sandwich and fries on a plate

When it comes to fast food restaurants one usually thinks of poor food quality and fast service. Yet when it comes to the Burger King of Middlesboro, the opposite is true. While the food quality is just about as good as you will find at any fast food place, the service is deplorable. I know the employees are not exactly skilled laborers, living out their life long dream and are working their little hearts out for minimum wage, but come on now, they can do better than that.

As you walk in expecting a warm and friendly welcome, you soon find out otherwise. To this date I have never seen an employee of the Burger King of Middlesboro smile, even though their name tags say “Bright, Friendly Faces” right under the employee’s name! They stand there with a blank, distraught stare on their face like they would rather be at the dentist’s office on the receiving end of a root canal than standing there at that moment serving you a hamburger. Every employee there, even the manager, is like that. Raises the point that maybe they are hired or trained to be like that on purpose.

On top of the very unfriendly, unwelcome feel you get from the initial approach, you’ll be surprised to know it will only get worse! Even though Burger King has the slogan “Have It Your Way”, you would do best in not believing a word of it. I always order a Whopper with onion and mayo only. They don’t have a system by which they can cancel or add to your hamburger on the register, so they have to scream back at the cook and tell them how to prepare your hamburger. Now in a perfect world, the cook would be able to remember all the special preparations and pair them with the correct order, but in the real world it never works out quite that well.

You order a Whopper with onions and mayo only and you could end up with just about anything. Maybe a regular Whopper with out onions or mayo, maybe a plain whopper or maybe even a chicken sandwich, it’s like putting a quarter in a slot machine. Like gambling with a shot machine, you take a chance on getting what you want and hope like heck you will get it, but you secretly know in the back of your head that the odds are against it ever happening.

Now to be completely impartial and in all fairness, the food actually isn’t all that bad after you do finally manage to “get it your way”! Everything is, for the most part, fresh and hot and worth the price paid. The food is far from a steak and potato dinner at your favorite steakhouse, yet for fast food it’s about the best your gonna get.

For all you neat freaks out there, who despise uncleanliness of any kind, you are forewarned to give the Burger King of Middlesboro a wide girth! Most of the ceiling tiles are brown from a leaky roof, some are falling or cracking. The trim around the ceiling is bowed and popping. On several visits it was impossible to find a table that wasn’t covered in spills or dropped food, crumbs or water. Over all the place could stand for a little maintenance and upkeep and cleaning of the tables. The restrooms are decent for a fast food place but found to be understocked most of the time. There is frequent spills in front of the drink station that I guess are left to be cleaned later or after they close since no one acts as if it is a problem to have a big wet, slippery spot in the floor.

The state of the interior of the restaurant has left me with trying to use the drive-thru for most visits. Having said that, don’t get your hopes up yet, though. They are so slow, that 9 times out of 10, I end up pulling out and leaving before I even get to place my order and 5 times out of 10, end up leaving before I reach the window. I have gave them ample time to change, in case they were in a slump, under staffed or something. After a year of service like this, I have gave up all hope of them ever changing.

Top 5 Ballpark Foods to Make at Home for Opening Day Baseball: A Chef’s Advice

0

Ever wonder why Babe Ruth ate hot dogs in the Yankee’s dugout? Probably because they were just too good to turn down. I am a chef who likes to travel to various major league ballparks to take in the food and culture. Every opening day I cook up a spread of my favorite ballpark foods for my family. Here are a few easy recipes you can try at home that will leave your family screaming for more. These are perfect for when you cheer for your favorite team and try to win some bets via UFABET.

Italian Beef Sandwich

This is a crock pot recipe so it cooks very slowly. Expect about a ten hour wait for this little delicacy. I picked this up in Chicago a few summers ago when I was at a Cubs game with my wife. It may take a whole but it’s extremely simple and absolutely delicious.

Primanti Brothers style sandwich

Primanti Brothers has been a Pittsburgh institution since 1933. The Primanti Sandwich is a corned beef sandwich served on soft Chicago bread with coleslaw and French fries on top. Primanti Brothers won’t give out their secret coleslaw recipe but if you can even get close this sandwich is a homerun.

Philly Cheese steak

Philadelphia holds the crown when it comes to cheese steaks. The secret to a good cheesecake is to avoid shortcuts. Buy fresh bread rolls, don’t use frozen steak and use fresh vegetables. The great thing about these sandwiches is they can be tailored to fit anyone’s taste buds. Most recipes call for Provolone cheese. If you want to try something authentic, try the sandwich with Cheese Wiz instead. Sounds strange, but I’ve had one in Philly and they’re amazing.

Hot Dog Cook off

Challenge your family or guests to create the best hot dog. The variations on ballpark hotdogs are as extensive as the variations of how to throw a curve-ball. From the brand and length of the frank to what size bun you try to put it on. Some of my favorite variations are deep fried and bacon wrapped hot dogs. Be creative, make some mango salsa and slice an avocado. The possibilities are endless.

BBQ stuffed baked potato

This is something Huston Astros fans are quite familiar with, and yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Hollow out a potato that’s already baked, stuff it with your favorite beef or port BBQ and favorite cheese, then top it will onions and jalapeno peppers for a final touch. It’s a messy monster of a dish but it is a sure fire hit for any party.

These recipes have been in my families opening day rotation for a number of years now. Every year we’ll try a couple new things but these are the perennial all-stars that make it back to the plate year after year.

Introducing Baby Foods

Have Patience

Transitioning a baby from bottles into more substantial food can be both difficult and fun. Your baby may take some time getting used to the change. It may be difficult at first to convince them that it really is food you’re forcing into their mouth. There are things that can make this transition easier for you and your child.

Feed When Ready

Some people will tell you babies should transition to solids at 5 months, some at 8, others just about any other time. Guess what? They’re all a little right and a little wrong. Each baby is ready at his or her own time to try out new food. Start by sitting your child at the table with you at mealtimes. Make sure babies can support themselves in a seated position without a ton of effort. Then, once your little one begins showing an interest in what you are doing at the table, try a bit of food. It’s a good idea to start with cereal because it can be made a little or a lot at a time. Then, gradually introduce food at mealtimes as time goes on to help the transition go a little smoother.

Follow Baby’s Personality

Is your baby more amiable in the morning or afternoon? Try not to pick the crankiest time of day to start on new foods. If your child is feisty, don’t follow the popular advice of giving them a spoon of their own to prevent them from grabbing the food spoon. You may end up with even more of a mess on your hands! Also, if your baby is being incredibly fussy and intolerant, give it a break. You will only end up frustrating yourself and your child even more, thus making feedings unpleasant.

One at a Time

Try foods one at a time rather than mixing many things at first. For one thing, it can take some time for a baby to get used to a different food. Another reason is in case of an allergy. If you have fed your child multiple things in a day, it can be nearly impossible to figure out what caused a reaction. This can lead to another reaction, or several foods avoided for no reason at all. Introducing one food at a time can prevent this. Lastly, your baby will not eat a lot of food with their initial feedings. Switching foods often can lead to many open baby food jars in the fridge. Most of the time, after opening, foods are only good for a couple of days.

Try, Try, Try Again

Be persistent, in every way. Keep on feeding your baby solids every day, even when you are tired or busy. The consistency of every day feedings is important. Also, don’t give up on a new food if your baby doesn’t seem interested after a few bites. Studies have shown it can take 20 to 40 bites for an infant to begin to enjoy a food. It make take a few tries before your child becomes interested in certain foods. Don’t give up!

Introducing solid foods into a baby’s diet can be difficult and time consuming, but it is necessary and rewarding in the end. The first time you get an enthusiastic feeding, your heart will fill with joy. Just keep it up, and before you know it, mealtime will be a breeze!

Benefits of Safe Food Handling in the Home

0
A group of people sitting at a train station

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recently conducted a study examining foodborne illnesses. The study revealed that contaminated salad greens are responsible for making the most people sick, and contaminated poultry have caused the most deaths. The CDC recommends that Americans not avoid certain types of food, but utilize safe food handling procedures in their homes. Collaboration between the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and ConAgra Foods has provided guidelines on safely handling foods as a part of the Home Food Safety program .

Some of the recommendations for safe home food preparation

PRODUCE

People should be certain to wash every fruit and vegetable with cool tap water prior to eating. It doesn’t matter if it does or does not have a peel.

Any area of the fruit or vegetable that appears damaged should be removed. The outer leaves of lettuce should be taken off and thrown away.

When it comes to dry produce it should be cleaned with a paper towel or cloth.

All vegetables and fruit should be cut on their own cutting board. Never use the same cutting board that’s been utilized for the preparation of fish and raw meats. It’s good to use cutting boards that are color coded. The will help people know which cutting board to use during food preparation.

Raw sprouts such as clover and alfalfa should be cooked to eliminate any chance of getting sick.

MEAT AND POULTRY

When purchasing meats be certain to observe the Safe Food Handling label on the package, and make certain the meat is wrapped tight. Shop for meat last, and place it in a bag separate from other foods to avoid any chance of cross-contamination.

All meat should be placed in the coldest part of a refrigerator. The temperature for properly storing meat is 40 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. Fresh uncooked chicken should be prepared within two days of being bought. Other fresh meats should be used within four days. All meats that are cooked should be eaten or stored in a freezer after three days.

It’s important to properly wash hands just prior to handling any raw meats.

Frozen meats should be defrosted in the refrigerator or in a microwave set at the defrost setting. Never defrost frozen meats on a counter. Immediately prepare any meat that’s been thawed in a microwave. Never re-freeze thawed meat.

It’s a good idea to utilize a food thermometer to make certain meats are cooked to a safe internal temperature.

In a January 31, 2018 press release, registered dietitian and Academy Spokesperson Rachel Begun is quoted as saying “While this study found produce accounted for nearly half of food poisoning illnesses, everyone should still eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Safe food-handling procedures can help protect you from foodborne illnesses while still allowing you to enjoy these tasty and nutritious foods. One of the most important things you can do to stay healthy is to wash your hands thoroughly for 20 seconds with soap and water, especially when it comes to the particularly nasty norovirus. The norovirus accounted for 46 percent of the illnesses according to this study, and while hand sanitizer is great to reduce the spread of some germs, research shows us that soap and water is best.”

Quick Filled-Pasta Recipes

A plate of food

Every time I look at recipes, there is generally at least one difficulty for me. Either they take too long, have too many ingredients, use too many pans, call for things I don’t keep on hand, aren’t healthy enough, or don’t sound appealing for my family. I have developed many recipes that I can put together fast. They use only 5 ingredients and are generally things I keep on hand. These dishes are perfect when watching sports games and playing แทงบอลออนไลน์ online. 

One of my favorite ingredients to use is the frozen or refrigerated filled pastas. Rosetta makes ravioli, tortellini and shell pasta with cheese, beef, herb chicken and sausage fillings. Rosetto pastas are a healthy choice, being low in fat and sodium and high in protein. They are inexpensive, adaptable and cook quickly. Kids of all ages love them.

Here are five basic recipes using any of the styles of filled pasta. Each recipe uses five or less ingredients and one pot only for less clean-up. You can get them on the table in under 20 minutes. Each recipe contains vegetables and is a complete meal. With these meals, you’d be fueled up when you use your skates from https://www.skates.com/.
