But -- you take the you take the of the French bread out of the out of the freezer of course if it's in a paper bag which is coming you -- Not the one in the plastic bag actually comes from the same big creep but the the plastic bags keep it fresher for a few days the once in the paper bag really are -- the next. But that it's I think it's better so you get that bread and you. Wrap it pretty well in the first plastic wrap and then aluminum foil and then you put in the -- And you'll -- CPU quoted in the spot where it's the -- Then when you're ready to actually eat it you take -- -- you you preheat your oven to about 400 degrees -- you take.

And you rub your hands all on the outside bottom of the bread and then you put in India. And it will come out. Exactly. Like it just came the -- -- that they. -- -- yeah that sounds like you. Works like a dream infecting guy who you who owns. Like commerce told me how to do. But I'm just amazed I didn't know that's all my life. Well there you go over the -- -- it for a long long time I I thought that the reason they called it. Thousand island dressing is it had a bunch of little islands in -- two minutes now why they call it that at all. There right now. Well. Rick I thought I had.

You get the French bread you by the French bread in the room in the old paper bag not the plastic. And and you know fresh -- not one that's already artists rock. A look at it you bring it home you -- that or whatever part of it maybe you wanna use half of it makes and -- which -- -- the other half for some other time. Anyway you you wrap it in plastic -- -- you rampant in the aluminum foil and you put it in the freezer closest to the spot where. The freezer is blowing it is the faster something freezes the better comes out. When you're ready to to use it turn on your oven to 400 degrees take the wolf out. Unwrap that I didn't -- to the guy to unwrap but I hope he picked up on affected you kind of do need to do. Yeah. Yeah and then you you you -- your hands with clean you know grow cold running water I would wash my hands verses. And then just use your wet hands sweat dripping hands at just nine. Oh -- you know run your hands all over the loaf of bread until you know it's not soaking wet you just what comes off the hands. And then you put it in the oven and you'll find that that wonderful French bread crossed. Comes out nice and crusty in the inside is still soft and and you know how good French -- can be it's kind of almost like a spider web and their sometimes as these big holes. And it's that's just part of the nature of our bread but it comes out great it's like it. -- fighters are so it. Milk or -- in the. You know well thought out you just throw at -- of and until -- browns a little bit on the top that's what I look for. I wanna see it actually brown looked visibly Browner on top than it was when.

Lady called up with the restaurants round Napoleon hill to 60. 187 me you don't have to call about that if you have something else you want to ask about her tell about. You know wide I have a question here man meant to ask at the very beginning but we got busy right away and now we're not so I'm gonna ask it now. If you went out to a restaurant. On Thanksgiving. Day where did you go. And V. A good. I -- I used to go to one Thanksgiving dinner a year you know on a Thanksgiving a long time ago. And then people started inviting me over to their house and then I got married -- and -- -- family and then I had. I managed to get the Thanksgiving tradition over my house and we've been doing that for twenty years. And so I just never get out on Thanksgiving Day to any restaurants I have nothing to report other than what you tell me so. If you went out on Thanksgiving. Tell me how it was so I will take notes in next year when I do my big Thanksgiving roundup. I'll let everybody know about it. And if that was a terrible place called me and tell me what was wrong with -- don't tell me the name of it until I ask. But that the two great place fire right away our program is sponsored by -- rans or points. We are really just entering the feasting season. And if you work. On business or your club. Or your friends or your family or any group that you're involved with. Once to do a holiday dinner. But they don't wanna spend a whole lot of money and they -- -- the food to be really fancy they -- be good -- you know and good New Orleans food. A rich -- boys no kidding they have two things two ways that they can help one of them is. That they have this private dining room in the back. That is really very nice looking. And it holds as many as a hundred people. And they serve there regular food which of course includes the four boys but also. They have beings they have fried seafood they have Italian dishes they really have a lot of different things. And the famous mini -- -- to my wife just nuts about those. The other offer that they have to make Q is that if you wanna do some big party at your house but you don't wanna do all the cooking yourself. Talk to get their get their catering menu and it's full of stuff everything from whole turkeys to. -- just whatever you can think of and they would do it for you -- give you great price on and I know that from personal experience because we have skated many many things. With food from parents or boys over the years there -- veterans highway 3939 veterans just just pass Cleary. When's let's see -- open every day for lunch except Sunday and Wednesday through Saturday for kind of an early dinner to about 8 o'clock. Good place to go after you finish up and -- RR a in apostrophe S. Vincenzo. How -- One a Serra no -- talking about Vincent. With sin. We'll -- that's about it. At sub that's about as far. From radio I'm sorry we do it's who won those -- things that. Now yeah. Yet my name's not on its mind. Yet spelled backwards. My name -- month. -- Two eight on Thanksgiving we had a lot of time and they'll -- -- All beautiful places and yes what did you eat. Carol -- -- about it duck breasts you know. Are outstanding in actually there was terrific. Yeah that's a great place the shaft they are now. I think oh with the exception of pat Gallagher who was here for awhile. He's the best -- they've ever had peace he's really turning out some unusual and and delicious food. But it was a it was a limited menu I mean Thanksgiving. But really outstanding. Well good and the and you've managed to get out of the cold. And focus idea I don't live all that far away from that place but it's nice and cozy in that he's that old house. Well good thank you very much. He went to and the bills in Irvington just quite good and here is pat pat welcome. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- They have pretty high standards where they do in Turkey over the adjustments -- AT&T didn't. And it's the secret -- it Turkey. -- And better. -- acting. And that they can't cap world it was. Yeah everybody is talking I don't know why I never heard of that before this year and now I've gotten. Like 045 calls a week about that stuff we have a Reza we managed to get a recipe for it and. When I was worried a paid -- at saint it. Not going to be. -- good now well that's that's great to hear. Thank you for calling you know there were a number there was a number which is right and there were a number of restaurants there was a number of restaurants. Dave says there were a number of restaurants that were. Open steak houses that were open on Thanksgiving. And I've I've I was pretty sure that -- was doing Turkey as well as the stakes and all the other stuff that they do. Morton's was open I I never did look at their menus I really don't know. But there were a couple of other places noteworthy among them is a fairly new place on. On magazine street just off topic tool it's called the chop house. And they were open. On Thanksgiving. But they made no bones about it they said we're here we've got stakes we've got a regular menu. And if you'd rather eat steak in a Turkey on Thanksgiving I'm sure there were more than few people who felt that way. Come on over here I don't know how they didn't I hope they did well. We had Turkey we have two turkeys. We smoked one. And the other one I roasted in one of those plastic bags. And when I first heard about that idea of roasting a Turkey inside of a paper bag originally the first where Saturday. But it became popular around the country and Reynolds. Came out with these special plastic bags it seems crazy that you could take a plastic bag and put it in. 350 degree oven. Around a Turkey and not have a either melt their disintegrate but it doesn't mean and I don't know what the stuff is made out of but it it it doesn't. And that Turkey came out real good in terms of the the moisture and the texture of all the meat. It was just fabulous. Ahead and that this smoke bird I thought was the better of the two course would has its might thing. But that you get a little you know lot of extra flavor in with C news smoking and over sugar cane like I always do. You know what I'm gonna. Try to. Get somebody. To do a business. Of buying sugar cane. If you make a deal with -- sugar cane. Plantations up the river of which there are many union -- that thousands if not hundreds of thousands or millions maybe even. Of acres under sugar -- And I'll bet you they would sell Hugh. You know a couple hundred stocks. And then you cut it in the pieces of by eight inches long. And you get your fire started in your pit outside and obviously. And you just flick a few of these things on top of the charcoal. And it throws off a lot of smoke and I just find it just gets a wonderful flavor to the Turkey the only problem is getting. Getting a sugar cane and the only reason I get it is with two I have two sources and one of them is that I'm out that way that time a year. And I just pick up loose stalks that they -- on the road to some of it falls off the truck means lit it literally does you don't wanna go and parents to pick your own don't do that. But I also have some friends who only sugar plantation. And if they make it happen to make a trip down there they've lived here most of -- I -- talent. I asked him to bring me some may be edited from a bunch. So it's it's just great but I I think could be it be wonderful for somebody to sell that. Somewhere I don't know like a fruit stand no one of those trucks on the side of the street. We will return with more of the food show in just a moment but first if you will this it and -- pop pop -- hello hello it's the food show. On.

And and learn English and injured. Europa league ultimately -- And you're just giving the recipe to doing your will. There on. It's it's a little far but -- And it is. The not a problems. Mr. I would rather have them. It's it's pretty easy. The only problem is that there's a lot of ingredients. And nothing uncommon nothing you. Probably don't have a new kitchen already and and I would. Tell you that if you go to no menu dot com and no and I I have all recipe all written down there -- Let me let me give -- kind of a quick rundown. -- step one is you make this goalies you start off with two -- of root -- 24 ounces -- root beer you poured into a saucepan. But a tablespoon and a half of Tabasco. Caribbean style steak sauce or pick -- well or something like. Yeah. Idea I am. Putting in a but that two tablespoons may be little boy that I think this year of pepper -- The super super hot pepper jelly like you by the Tabasco brand the green one is actually better than the red one for this by the real good but that the Greenland is the right amount of pot you know you don't want it to be too too spicy. And then idea I I'd take an orange. -- -- the orange. And then I scrape off the the news of the line which you could do that with a greater you can do with this special little tool for making. Or incest or it just caught the damn thing up the -- millions of people out there. And and then that's about it and you bring that up to a boil and then you cover that -- put on hand and -- -- with brown sugar. And but you'll see the rest of it on the recipe online no -- dot com.
