You guys ever hear of a restaurant in Chicago called Johnny Casserole?

I think a lot of it has to do with the LaCroix-type drinking crew. People love their bubble water and it’s sort of a lateral move. I like flavored seltzer during the day now and then, which is why I like hard seltzer too, but only now and then. Of course, there’s a ton of terrible seltzers of both kinds out there too, Read more

Ever have a fresh one? They’re very tart and have a beautiful red color. Sour enough that it’s a big difference from a navel orange, so this would probably be slightly more bitter or sour!

I love the guessing games. Cricket was my cat, she passed away last year. She literally looked like cat straight from an animation and acted like one too. I miss her. She was perfect.

If you want to know something, the Portillo’s chopped salad is terrific. It’s hearty, has chicken, bacon, and little pasta noodles in it, and I like the dressing too. If you need baby steps with him, this might actually do the trick.

I was thinking the same thing but I’m guessing there’s not a ton of it. I mean, they’re really selling to my sense of what I think is delicious, so I like tomatoes, then obviously because Dennis loves tomatoes, his cat will love tomatoes?

I absolutely love this idea. What makes Dubai-style chicken unique?

You guys are great and brought up points I hadn’t thought about. I can still dream about turkey! I like that it has a deeper flavor than chicken. Maybe I am just bored of chicken.

I know. But did you see all the weird controversy around the most recent one?! It put me off of the entire series! Also to be fair I hadn’t gotten a chance to try it yet, but the debacle made me mad.

Honestly, any packaged frozen stuff that goes in the oven ends up quite good. Hot Pockets, frozen fries, fish sticks. It really shines with any vegetables you’d want to roast, and things like fresh fish and chicken rock too. The world is your air fryer. Read more

It’ll be here later this week. It’s a Cosori air fryer, the big one, I just read that one is pretty solid for the price!

Danny, you’re awesome. Not because of the fries, I just wanted to tell you you’re awesome.

Sure, thank you for participating! You guys always have really interesting suggestions I never think of on my own.

I haven’t yet. It’s in my old neighborhood, but I’ve heard nothing but stellar praise about it in every way. Our current neighborhood is quite far from it, but come vaccination time...it’s definitely on my list.

We got as much as the two of us could handle, Chickenjoy, a burger (I can’t remember which, but I remember it was better than I thought it’d be), the sweet spaghetti, mashed potatoes. It’s been a while, but damn, I remember I really liked that gravy. We went to the Seafood City location you mentioned in another Read more

I am happy to say I have, and we loved it. We live not too terribly far from one. There’s multiple locations in the Chicagoland area.
