I don't know if Mitch knows this, but Rhododendron leaves are extremely toxic. A friend of mine has a hobby farm in the middle of Vancouver, and 14 of his pet goats escaped from their pen and started eating his rhododendrons and within an hour they were all vomiting and died. They were pets, so needless to say he was very upset. Are not roux's more Cajun than classic French? I know Cajun is French via Acadia etc, but I'm no expert, but Emerill is constantly making a roux for his gumbo's etc. Did Michelle puposely hide the flour, or maybe she just forget where she had placed it? Darlene was slightly more sympathetic last night, almost human, but her ideas seem so tea and crumpets and potpouri, I don't think she's in touch with the modern homemaker, not that you have to be a pompous postmodern this, postmodern that like Tom, but at least join the millinieum. Also, ice in a martini? I've never had a martini served like that.
