I just don't get soul food. It looks and sounds so unappetizing, even after Chef Ramsay brought the menu up to date. I was glad that he liked the cake. I didn't want to see the poor mother's heart get broken.

I have to confess that I also suspected either Gordon Ramsay or some member of the TV crew of planting the mouse by the front door.

I thought Ramsay would vindicate himself completely by doing one of those massive cleanings and finding lots of mouse droppings, but that didn't happen. It must have been a very clean restaurant because it's rare that he doesn't poke through the freezers and storerooms and throw everything out.

Yep! I DO like greens and black-eyed peas with vinegar. Is that 'soul food'? Hate anything breaded tho', and don't eat meat... so? I guess not. The red velvet cake looked good.

Yes, mousey was likely a 'plant' OR ...why didn't anybody say it could have come through the front door while it was being held open. That's how we get ours...

Is Dusty a statue or a live dog?

HA! Dusty is a statue from when I decided never to get another dawg. It was so funny when I first brought Inky home. Dusty is pretty 'real looking' and has glass eyes that REALLY look like eyes. Inky would stand nose to nose with him and stare. I wish I could have read his mind!

Now Dusty just holds the door open so wind won't blow it shut when Inky goes in and out. Otherwise he sits in the dining room:

There's a restaurant in this town called "Uncle James' Chicken and Trout". Seriously. And yeah I'm pretty sure its soul food. But I would try it, seems like there'd be enough good chocices, mac and cheese, catfish, peas, greens (no vinegar) cornbread, hush puppies. I will NEVER eat chittterlings.

I love when Inky carries his loveys.

Well, not being one who eats meat, I still might venture to ask what you think is wrapped around your fav sausage.

Well according to WIkipedia, the sausage casings have had their ' fat layer and mucous layer cleaned off' - That must make ALL the difference Rolling on the floor laughing

Don't hang with me or you will, however gradually, lose your taste for meat altogether.

If you visit Uncle James', go for the trout, peas, and cornbread! (Or we may have to discuss chicken ...yeech!)

Dang it, I missed the mouse episode. I don't know how such food got to be called "soul food" - as if it was only eaten by black people in the South. I'm here to tell you - and I was there - that food was eaten by EVERYBODY! It's basic Southern food. Whether you have a piece of fried chicken on the plate or not, blackeye peas with 'hot sauce' (vinegar steeped with hot chile peppers), cornbread, slices of sweet onion, some sauteed squash, fried okra and/or a baked sweet potato makes a plate of soul food, no matter who you are.

I'll have one dinner plate please Thumbs up

Last night- the Danish restaurant in Miami all painted pink inside.
OK, number one- when's the last time one of your friends said "Hey I could really go for some Danish food!"

The cross contaminated duck was the high light (lowlight) of this episode! Cooked duck found on a pan with raw meat thawing in fridge !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whoa, gotta check Tivo to see if it recorded. Sounds like a good one. And, no, other than a Danish pastry, I've never heard much about Danish food, much less been to a Danish restaurant. Duck? That's what I'd expect in a Chinese cafe.
