Care Package from George @ Rovers Down South

Have you guys ever tried this?:


http://www.louisianafishfry.com/


George said this company is his neighbor. George sent us a bunch of assorted packages from this company. Here are some pics:










Many thanks to George.

It's good stuff. Most fish fry is the same, but that's a brand I've used and liked.

I don't cook much -- most of my friends cook much better than I do, so I generally defer to them. The guy I know who does it the best gets the extra fine fish fry and cuts it in half with flour that he's sprinkled cayenne and black pepper in (I think he puts some salt in the flour, too). He makes a little egg wash to dip the fish in, then rolls it in the flour/fish fry. His fried trout is my favorite.

I miss my Uncle George. Haven't been able to get by there in a while. I'm overdue for some ridicule.

Oh, and that crab boil on that site is a great thing to mix into some home made mashed potatoes. Not much, just a few table spoons. Makes them taste like potatoes from the crawfish pot. Great stuff.


Louisiana is the best hot sauce around, imho. Beats the tar out of Tabasco.

This Louisiana Fish Fry was George's retaliation.

I called George one day to order a D90SW cargo door hinge rebuild kit for my truck. And the fucker sent it free of charge. He wouldn't accept payment.

So we sent him a bottle of booze in retaliation.

George called to say fuck you.

Then he sent the Fish Fry.

Gotta love George.

George just sent me a banjo fitting for my diesel fuel injector pump.

He didn't charge me.

So I sent him Dr. Zog's Sex Wax and told him to use it on his next trip to Kansas to visit Pendy.

Louisiana is good, but I prefer:

http://www.zatarain.com/products/

This is probably the most popular brand amongst locals.

Matt, give me a call whenever you want to take your D-90 out.

I second Doug's call on locals using Zatarain's.

Doug, I'm hoping to have some time this summer -- I'm almost done renovating the house, I've got the wedding behind me, and I'm starting to catch up at work (I think, it just keeps coming in waves ).

I'll certainly give you a call.

Louisiana Fish Fry and Zatarain's remind of a modern Rice-A-Roni.

Remember the old ads?

"Rice-A-Roni, the San Francisco treat. Rice-A-Roni, the flavor can't be beat."

Talk about a good ad campaign. I don't say the above quote... I sing it.

For the record, it's not like people use the Louisiana or Zatarain's stuff to just add water and make a meal, ala Rice-A-Roni.

As far as catchy ads go, I used to remember "We need more Calgon!!" all the time. "Ancient Chinese Secret" is still in the lexicon.

Apparently George got the wax last week because he sent me my relay and banjo fitting (without charging me of course) and this little gift.


Fuck George.

As you know, no good deed goes unpunished at EE.

So, we sent some retaliation back at George:





They represent some of the most fucked up Korean instant ramen available, including Kimchi Ramen,:




300 Korean Dollars,:




and--of course--the all-time classic, Chacharoni:




George emailed me this morning:


"To Whom It May Concern

I can't quite figure out the Southern California recipe!

Add wax or water?


Thanks.....

George"


Attached to George's email was this pic:




I love how the 300 Korean Dollars package is upside down. Obviously, George doesn't read Korean.

I hope George tries them.

I have yet to try YEUL RAMEN:



I am told it's pretty spicy.

I went to my local Asian grocery store a few days ago and saw a Ramen package of champong. There is a Chinese restaurant in Chicago that I go to every time I'm back home that makes the most incredible champong I've ever had. The noodles are handmade & the broth is amazing. For those of you that are into eating the real deal, how does the packaged ramen compare? Would it be a complete letdown or is it still edible?

It's difficult to compare the instant to the fresh. Champong has lots of seafood and vegetables in it, and there's no way these could be duplicated in the instant. But I think these instant ramens have their place. They're a quick and dirty Sunday morning breakfast for a lot of Koreans.

I prefer chacharoni better. Unless you know of a secret way of making chapagetthi better than chacharoni.
