Key points from these photos is leaving a little zip part unzipped so as to allow all air to escape and folding the opening of the Ziploc bag outwardly so that nothing dribbles out onto the edges and into the zipper portion.

Having originally posted here, traffic to the site soared! Oh joy! But I realized too late that my site cache was tampering with valid checkout, and I can't help but think I lost out on at least one sale... Oh bummer.
This domain had been dormant for several years, but I couldn't just let go of a great domain name like http://www.pianoinprint.com. Would you?
Thanks anonymous commenter for renewing my interest in this simple experiment :)

OK. I am very happy now-- Shiraz Shish Kabob, a new Middle-Eastern restaurant here in Aggieland, is open and well worth a visit. They opened in early Dec 2008 in the unassuming, small former Quick-as-a-Flash building on Texas & Dominik and have kinks to work out, but the FOOD.. WOW, well-prepared and you can overlook anything else. You come to eat after all, right?
We tried one of several dishes: one ground beef, one beef steak, and one chicken. All tender, juicy, and very flavorful. The rice had just a hint of saffron, the flat bread made fresh, and the hummus, cucumber yoghurt (similar to raita in Indian cuisine), and tibuli were all very tasty.
They lacked on accomodation: we had a reasonable-sized party of four adults, one 3yr old, and one baby, but yet they couldn't offer a platter or basic staples for each and kabobs to share, and when the plates came out, there were no extra plates for sharing nor extra fork for the little one. When I was walking back and forth carrying trays for my bunch, noone nearby offered to help which I found a little off. Others behind the counter were very warm and helpful.
I think give it a few months and they may become more family friendly-- there's a good market for families wanting to expose their kiddos, and I will definitely be dragging mine in again often, well before Shiraz Shish Kabob gets a chance to adapt to accomodate such a party just to do my part to ensure they stay open for many years to come. (Plus, did I mention how delicious it all was!)
I'm thrilled to have them in town! :D

Don't let the exterior surprise you! The interior of Luigis two main seating areas is cleverly decorated in an Italian villa style home interior and patio exterior-- all within Texas-style air conditioned saving goodness! There are lit patio umbrellas, hanging lanterns, and the walls have faux building exteriors to really emphasize the impression that you're dining outside. Live jazz music on Fridays, Saturdays trail later dining hours and carry the bar and "tapas" into the night. This ain't no typical mom & pop, and it certainly is not corporate.
Luigi's Patio Ristorante is conveniently located in south college station on Rock Prairie and Hwy 6.
