    Concur trial and error made some homemade French fries over the weekend didn't turn out to well. However I kept trying throughout the weekend, also tried homemade steak and cheese. No pics because it was a horrible fail, I used the wrong type of steak. I couldn't find thin sliced ribeye so I thought fajita steak would work the same. It was decent but not what I was going for, to much fat that I should of cut off prior to cooking.

    20180614_105700.jpg Burritos that don't have crust marks on the tortilla look "undercooked."

    One thing that Baja Fresh does better than the rest of the Mainstream Burrito Spots

    F0A7E48E-F527-4EEC-957F-769C29C8F9AC.jpeg Needs to have a spicy option .. but I think Safeway had a better tasting and fresher looking guacamole so far . Will be trying a different Whole Foods to see if there’s any difference

    @nawghtyhare really not trying to turn this into a tipping discussion, but I'm just curious. The $200+ dinners, do you go back to those spots on the regular? Do they remember your face? If yes for both, is the treatment any different?

    Was deleting some pics from my phone & came across these that I never posted...

    Met the mom in law for lunch at a spot called Pappas. They told me Michael K Williams aka Omar from The Wire was there last week for a lunch. Shrimp pasta with vodka sauce.

    From 3 weeks ago... first time I had Bubba Gump. Relative wanted to go there for her Bday. Was expecting it to be bad so I went with a safe option of shrimp surf & turf. I asked for medium rare but I got medium. Was pretty good actually.

    Some place in Montgomery Co meeting another relative. Shrimp & grits. Grits were perfect. Nice ratio of butter & salt.

    Found a pic on Pappas' FB with the managers but I think they're part of the family that owns the place. This place is the embodiment of a neighborhood place. Been around since '72 & has a huge loyal following especially for the old timers. Another place in Bmore in the County at least is Pizza Johns in Essex which has been around since '66.
