“Variety is a positive requisite, even in the character of our food.”  John Ruskin Absolutely loving southwestern foods and determined to eat a mega amount of veggies can sometimes be challenging, unless I count tortillas, corn chips, and spicy cheese dip as veggies.  Good luck with that.

SHEPHERDS PIE

“Never try to teach a pig to sing.  You waste your time and you annoy the pig.”  Mark Twain I think this post is about experimenting.  That’s something people do when they want an answer to the question, what could go wrong?

GLUTEN FREE TABOULI

“Be a good person, but don’t waste time to prove it.” Well, of course, if there is no bulgar wheat in this recipe, it really isn’t authentic tabouli.  And if there is bulgar wheat in this recipe it isn’t gluten free.  Do I have better things to worry about?  Why not just get on with…

ANOTHER NON-BREAD

“I never lose.  Either I win or I learn.” When eating for health there are a lot of things I’m giving up.  I’m giving up sugar and processed food and my overhanging belly.  Food and food for thought. One of my adventures involves trying to find a bread substitute, not necessarily for me, but for…

ALTERED POTATO SALAD

“I’m sorry for the things I said when it was winter.” Tonight I’m going with some friends to a play at an outdoor theater.  The sky is morphing back and forth between partly sunny and partly cloudy, which are basically the same thing if you think about it.  But there were other things to think…

Hashed Brown

“Art has no right answer.  The best we can hope for is an interesting answer.”  Seth Godin Another side dish.  But blessedly, not another side dish with zucchini.  Or as my friend across the pond recently told me, in their part of the world a zucchini is called a courgette. Listen up, my Yankee friends.…
