I am about to eat my very first portobello sandwich. So late in the game!!!! By the way, there is some very icky flu/fever/swollen throat thing going around here so i have been alternately sleeping and watching "Style Me with Rachel Hunter" all day.

That's a mushroom, right? Sick...

joe you ate a portabello once, remember? It was fried & came with cream gravy...you loved it!
Posted: Feb 28, 2006 10:25 pm
 
Did you know?

People who eat mushrooms have a better sense of well-being and have mad love skills.

Mushroom haters breathe through their mouths and typically hump fire hydrants.

you loved it!

Nuh-uh! I thought it was ok for a 'shroom. I wouldn't eat another bit if you offered it to me. Ick.

Stands, I really only posted anti-'shroom sentiments to hear more of your backwards wisdom. "Mad love." See what I mean???

I dig.

Freedom hater.

I really like portabellos. I can't believe you've never eaten one, fiery!
There used to be this mafiosa coke dealing place off the square that had really good portabello sandwiches.

It was yum! Marianated in balsamic with greens, grilled onions on grilled como bread. I am sold!

Portabello is the king of mushrooms! If it's fresh & cooked right- it can taste just like a delicious steak (without all the blood guilt!). Don't get me wrong- I prefer a steak- but that is a damn fine mushroom.

Burgerville has fried portabellos as one of their seasonal items every year.

Ummm....I never thought about fried portabellos. My southern is slipping...
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 1:47 am
 
This one was grilled. are the Burgerville ones battered
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 1:48 am
 
Hey fiery, I just started a topic in ??? in which I need your advice.
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 1:51 am
 
I LOVE portabellos....fried, sauteed, broiled, grilled, and of course marinaded.

I also kinda love Style Me w/ Rachel Hunter. How's 'bout that John?!?!
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 1:51 am
 
Yep- they're battered- pretty standard fast food fryer action but just to see them on the menu now & again is nice. I believe they come with ranch or blue cheese or some such for dipping. I wouldn't say they're Burgerville's BEST seasonal item. That award goes to the Chocolate Hazelnut shake.
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 2:28 am
 
Nah, the marionberry shake takes the cake for me!
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 2:30 am
 
Luciferous- where were you in the candy bar thread? Chocolate-hazelnut is the BOMB! But fresh berry shakes are pretty untouchable... mmmmmmm, marionberry.......
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 2:31 am
 
OK, I have been watching those Style Me's back-to-back...she is going more the Tyra route and that dude with the pencil thin stasche? Is that John? They are so damn cruel, but low-budget. I love how when Rachel Hunter told that guy to cut the "emotional BS" because she knows how it is how to "be on the other side of a reality show" and you just gotta "eat it." Rawr!
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 2:36 am
 
More wisdom Mr. Stands! More wisdom!
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 2:40 am
 
What channel, fiery?
Man, I think she's older than me. I kindof would've liked to be married to Rod Stewart for all that time, though. He's so funny and fey.
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 2:40 am
 
John is the guy with the big head of curly hair, really gay, wears dresses and is in the final 4. I think Franco is the dude with the 'stash. I haven't seen every episode, but don't think I neccessarily care for Rachel Hunter either. I'm bracing myself for Tyra this next season: have a feeling I'm going to hate her even more if she lays that talk-show-Tyra-schtick on heavy.

Re: portabellos ; Franklin Farms brand portabello hot dogs are delicious. They are way better than any tofu dog can ever be.

oops, sorry my computer freaked out on me.

Style Me is on the We Channel. They also have #1 Star - Lisa Loeb searching for love.
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 2:49 am
 
Oh I've seen Lisa Loeb. Caught a couple of episodes this weekend. She seems so sane and normal. A little whiny...but pretty normal nonetheless.
I'll look for the Rachel Hunter thing. Thanks!

Luciferous- where were you in the candy bar thread? Chocolate-hazelnut is the BOMB!

Not much of candy muncher these days... but choc-hazelnut can't be beat. I've heard many dirty stories involving Nutella.
Have you ever tried some toasted hazelnuts with blue cheese on a salad? Magic! I also enjoy hazelnuts & blue cheese on my pizza a la American Dream. Crap... I prolly should've started a hazelnut thread...
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 3:06 am
 
I think we're headed to Slow Bar right now for dinner... their house salad is one of the best in town- candied (but not cloying) hazelnuts (that are also kinda spicy) over greens with goat cheese and simple vinnagrette. $5!!
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 3:19 am
 
Acme's got a similar thing going- baby spinach, hazelnuts, blue cheese chunks & balsamic vinagrette. If they still do happy hour- you can get it for $2. Not too shabby...

Hey, fiery. My girlfriend's cousin is on that Style Me show and I forgot to tape it last night. Has the thin, blond tattooed girl been eliminated yet?
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 3:45 am
 
I ate some mushrooms today.
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 4:10 am
 
I hope you mean the fun kind! I haven't had those in ages....Ah, memories...

cthort - are you talking about Buick? The one described as working as a "rock band member"?
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 4:17 am
 
That's her.
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 4:37 am
 
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 2:52 pm | Edited by: fierydrunk
 
Oh no, Buick is sill around. I think she won a challenge the other day. I like her the best except for this total intersexual freakazoid (john) who is truly the most talented...which makes sense. One question: Is Buick her real name? That would be one big strike against her if she just calls herself Buick.
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 4:00 pm
 
I like John's style (I think he even makes a good girl) but did you see the bracelete he glued to those shoes? Big mistake. But not as big as the green dress fiasco. Whadda shame.
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 4:48 pm
 
Yeah, the bracelet thing was just cheap. He did fantastic with that fanny-packed mom tourist though. "Global chic". Gawd. I liked that fat black chick's Nordic babe look though--at least the hair and sweater.

Rachel Hunter is a cooze.
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 7:20 pm
 
Buick is her real name.
Posted: Mar 1, 2006 8:11 pm
 
Then she's all good. You know, you never know about "those types".
Posted: Mar 2, 2006 2:52 pm
 
You can make a pretty neat pizza with portabellos, carmelized onions and blue cheese.
Posted: Mar 2, 2006 4:12 pm
 
do you sautee the 'bellos with the onions?
Posted: Mar 3, 2006 1:50 am
 
You probably could, but might risk making it more greasy than you want...I just generally brush some olive oil lightly on the portabellos before I put them on the pizza and then go right into the oven as such...

so, i had this client for whom i did PR - he played w/ rod stewart for manyyears... so when you say

Man, I think she's older than me. I kindof would've liked to be married to Rod Stewart for all that time, though.

i have this amusing anecdote from said client who attended their wedding:
rachel hunter's dad is a year or two within rod's age. maybe even a year younger! can you imagine marrying someone who's dad is younger than you? weird.
Posted: Mar 3, 2006 12:26 pm
 
I was reminded late last night that the aforementioned pizza uses fontina as a "base" cheese and then the blue cheese is sprinkled on as an accent...
Posted: Mar 3, 2006 8:15 pm
 
Portobellos barbecue nice.
