       The New York Mets held up posting their lineup for a while this afternoon, waiting on who'd be starting for the Orioles.     Jake Arrieta was scheduled - and Jake Arrieta it will be.      Although he almost was wiped out by what he thinks was a bad pork chop at the team hotel in Atlanta on Saturday night.     Arrieta said he had terrible food poisoning on Sunday, couldn't keep any food down. And the Orioles wanted to see how he was this afternoon before allowing him to make his start.

For tailgating purposes, avocados are mostly used for chip-dipping guacamole. However, it is easy to change things up and offer an amazing appetizer that most tailgate aficionados haven't even considered. When avocados are grilled, the inside turns soft and molten, with a hint of nutty flavor. It can be easily scooped with a spoon and enjoyed with a variety of toppings. This is a fantastic game-day appetizer. Grilled avocados with pulled pork Ingredients 6-8 fresh ripe avocados 2 cups prepared pulled pork 2 cups shredded cheese salsa The morning of the tailgate, cut the avocados in half, and remove the pits.

Salisbury's 10th annual Pork in the Park Festival is coming the weekend of April 19-21 to Winter Place Park. The centerpiece of the popular festival is the barbecue competition, one of the biggest competitions east of the Mississippi that's sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society. There's an amateur barbecue competition, too. And this year, the festival  introduces the Mountaire Farms Eastern Shore Wing War to the weekend's pork-heavy lineup.  On April 21, Salisbury-area restaurants will compete in a bracket-style wing competition, in which "the people" will decide who has created the best wings.

Vietnamese food is a particularly attractive combination of fresh ingredients and familiar Asian flavors. Add the current popularity of its steamy noodle soup, pho, and it's no wonder that right now, Vietnamese food is hot, hot, hot. Indochine, which opened last May in an unassuming storefront in a Midtown stretch of Charles Street, covers the Vietnamese bases, from simple appetizers like rolls and dumplings to traditionally flavored rice dishes....

The minute that the weather turns summery, the air should be filled with the smoke from barbecue cookers. So on a recent sunny afternoon I drove around the Baltimore area, sniffing for smoke and eating pulled-pork sandwiches. I found several, including two very good ones. Smokers Barbeque Address --2833 Baltimore Blvd., Finksburg Phone --410-861-8675 Hours --10 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday-Saturday The pork in this $5.25 sandwich was dry and somewhat chewy. It was helped by a tangy sauce.

Worried legislators in Annapolis have decided it is time for them to go on a diet -- at least temporarily. No more pork, their leaders have decreed. It looks bad to dip into the barrel for $15 million in pet projects when Maryland is suffering through a prolonged recession and the state budget is being slashed by $1 billion.Instead, the bond money will be used for school construction and other munificent causes. Putting legislators on this low-pork diet (a little lard will still be left) is seen as a sure-fire way to win public applause and convince citizens the General Assembly is reforming itself.

You carried an AP story this weekend providing details on the recent "tax compromise. " The article points out that the final bill was larded up with give-aways going well beyond what we'd heard. Incredibly there's an additional $9.2 billion handout for Wall Street, one that seems to specifically reward making investments overseas. Plus $13 billion in new research and development tax credits for business. "Bonus depreciation" for job-creating investments was crafted to include "the purchase of racehorses.

Although I am not a football fan, my grown son is. I suggested that for the Super Bowl he serve his friends a casual supper.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland has filed a complaint with a city agency on behalf of a Muslim woman whose application to be a foster mother was denied, in part, because she does not allow pork in her home. Tashima Crudup, 26, said she contacted Contemporary Family Services in July and went through 50 hours worth of training classes to become a foster parent. The organization is a private company authorized by the state to place foster children with families. The complaint alleges that Crudup's application was denied after it was discovered during the interview process that she prohibits pork products in her Middle River home.

Ramen is a national icon in Japan, and now the noodle soup is turning into a food craze in the United States. When ramen shops started popping up in New York City about five years ago, most of them were the kind of hole-in-the-wall places that make diners feel like they had made a clever discovery. Ramen has gone more mainstream now, but for whatever reason, ramen has taken its sweet time getting to Baltimore. Now TenTen Ramen has arrived. The new spot opened this spring in the elegant townhouse space that used to be Joss Cafe & Sushi Bar, which closed last summer.

I have been able to buy eggs and cheese at my farmers market for a couple of summers now, in addition to the herbs, flowers, breads, fruits and vegetables. But I can buy meat now, too. The vendors sit behind a cash box on a table with a cooler next to them keeping the meat frozen. There is a price list (this kind of meat is really, really expensive) and a diagram of a cow or a pig, labeled with the various cuts. There are pictures, too. Of the cows. And they are labeled with the cows' names.

Sandy Apgar, an erstwhile pretender to being a public servant during the Clinton era, enthusiastically recommends that Maryland fall into the public-private partnership trap along with benighted states like Virginia ("The future of infrastructure," May 9). I'd like to know how inviting the pork farmers to engage in policy-making and priority-setting to increase the price of pork is going to benefit Mr. Apgar's "taxpayers. " I'm one of those taxpayers; the fat-cat corporations Mr. Apgar would woo with my money, not so much, according to the COST figures columnist Dan Rodricks cites in his column about CEO whining ("Complaining CEOs need to take a hike," May 9)

Regarding the recently approved emergency aid to Northeast states affected by superstorm Sandy ("$50.5 billion Sandy relief bill passes in U.S. Senate," Jan. 29), now is the time for a competent journalist to provide transparency to this bill especially since Sen. Dan Coats and Heritage Action for America made statements that "much of the funding is superfluous. " Let's clear the air by publishing the names of every senator who added "pork" to this bill, the amount of money and the name of the recipients.

There's plenty to criticize about the eight-month federal spending plan Democratic leaders will present today to their House colleagues as a done deal. The $463 billion package was crafted by the appropriations chairmen, David R. Obey in the House and Robert C. Byrd in the Senate, to deal with the GOP's failure to pass a budget for this fiscal year, now almost half-gone. Yet their plan is far more than a simple extension of current spending in order to get on with shaping a 2008 budget.

Are there any honest politicians in Congress? They were tasked to put together a bill to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy, but like addicts they couldn't do it without adding pork to suit their own agendas ("House agrees to emergency aid for superstorm victims," Jan. 16). Lawmakers have once again have shown their lack of respect for the American taxpayers' money. Before retiring from GM, I did not receive a raise for four years because the company was in debt for billions of dollars.

Now that we are seeing huge numbers of dollars being provided by Congress for financial aid to victims of Sandy's destruction, it would be nice to see the list of all the "pork" in these bills and the names of the legislators who added the "pork" ("House agrees to emergency aid for superstorm victims," Jan 16). The Sun has the opportunity to let the taxpayers know who is causing the increases in government expenditures. Surely, this information is available and it would seem to me to be your job to print the facts.
