    Default WWT


    For those new to RFC, WWT posts are an old RFC usenet tradition. It
    all got started many, many years ago when a long time poster Kay
    Hartman posted about her foodie weekend with Tammy McNiff.
    She gave a glowing review of their wonderful foodie weekend, what they
    did, where they went, what they ate and we all enjoyed it immensely.
    However, one reader of the post, after reading through the wonderful
    recitation of their wonderful weekend took_extreme_exception to the
    lack of recipes. He/she went on and on and on about it, I mean after
    all, this is a cooking group and not a travelogue. And this person
    went to all the time and trouble to read the *^%$# thing to find no
    recipes posted.
    Ergo, from that time on when any of us posted about our foodie
    adventures that did not include recipes we started the topic with the
    WWT to forewarn those looking for recipes that there would be none.

    So you can't say you haven't been warned.

    1st installment.

    After leaving Laguna Niguel at 6:30 this morning, we are safely
    ensconced in our nice hotel in Winslow AZ. We made great time and
    Squeaks didn't drive off and leave me, not once, when I had to go use
    the ladies.
    We are now having cocktails and hors d' oeuvers listening to the
    thunder and smelling the ozone.
    Our dinner reservations are made for 6:15 and the restaurant sounds
    really nice. Squeaks looked it up on Yelp and it got rave reviews.
    They even offer free range lamb.
    Here's what we are snacking on until dinner
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/koko181/7457148430/

    Squeaks, has been reading reviews of the local restaurants. The
    restaurant we will be dining at is rated #1 in town. A whopping 3
    places above Darrell's Root Beer Stand. I can't wait.
    And to think, we passed up the Road Kill Cafe in Seligman for this, it
    better be good

    Sounds like pretty good dining for such a small town.

    On our way out the door now. Pics and review to follow

    All lamb is "free range". Not that the USDA defines "free range" for
    red meat animals anyway, but lambs are the most free range of all the
    farmed animals since they can't be raised in crowded pens like cows
    and pigs. They truly do get the run of the range - usually as ,much
    or moreso than any other meat or poultry animals.

    Seeing "free range lamb" as a promotional term just means they're
    bull****ting you. Not unlike "Hormone-free chicken".

    I'm such a buzzkill, I know. Hopefully you won't read this until
    tomorrow and I'm sure you had a good time anyway :-)

    The dinner at The Turquoise Room was phenomenal. Much more than I
    expected or anticipated.
    Who'da thunk you can get elk, wild boar and venison tamales here.

    Here's the rundown on the meal.

    In a few minutes we'll be on our way out the door and off to Santa Fe.
    I'm getting antsy to get there.

    Looks like a great time!

    Allow me to ask a question/pick a nit on the main course description:

    How does one come up with the concept of "corn flan"? Flan, by definition,
    is a custard. Does not compute. ;-) How do you think it was made?

    Not sure how you can deal with Denny's after that. Can't you at least find a
    Cracker Barrel? ;-)

    Standing on a corner in Winslow Azirona it's such a fine sight to see.
    It's a girl my Lord in a flat bed Ford slowing down to take a look at me.

    ROFL! Oh well, breakfast is pretty much breakfast. But I have to say my
    experience with the *service* at Denny's sucks. Cracker Barrel is fun and
    the food is very good. But I don't think they have one in Santa Fe. <shrug>

    Ooops, I was thinking of a different brand.

    In any case, I've only seen Cracker Barrel as a resaurant mentioned
    here on RFC.

    I didn't realize that Denny's was also a brand of cheese.
