    As a culinary item, I have mixed feelings. I like it in small doses, and do like it better in lightly sweet preparation like a protein drink/smoothie. Poor quality dried turmeric, used in excessive quantities, can make something taste like dirt. I do take turmeric as a daily supplement for inflammation, I know the research is a mixed bag on that but as far as my doctors are concerned, it certainly isn't harmful and I personally feel that it provides some small benefit.

    Dinner 2021

    Non-observed Rosh Hashana dinner for the two of us, no family dinner for various reasons. Grilled swordfish, corn, massaged kale salad, red sweet potato not shown. I did work apples and honey into the kale salad, so….

    Frozen yogurt/berry pops, recipe from Serious Eats. I used frozen mixed berries that I defrosted, I was lazy and did not deseed the puree, which is a mistake I won’t repeat. Or I will use frozen cherries and avoid the seeds.
  4. I recently bought a bunch of basil at the supermarket (said to be local) that had roots intact, it said to put in water just to cover the roots, not in direct sunlight. It kept nicely for a week in my kitchen, but I noticed the stems were very light in color after a week, as I suppose the plant wasn't getting any nutrients! Otherwise I follow Weinoo's method, which works very well if you cull out the bad leaves before wrapping.

    Lunch 2021

    Leftover linguine w/homemade pesto, tuna, sliced grape tomatoes. I had really undercooked the pasta, so it actually held up well as a cold dish.

    Lunch 2021

    Continued my NJ tomato-fest, lunch was a little ciabatta roll, lightly toasted, little bit of chive cream cheese, lots of sliced tomato. Made it open faced to maximize the amount of tomato. Ate in my office with the door closed, hunched over like a starving raccoon.

    Salad 2016 –

    When NJ tomatoes are abundant…panzanella. Radicchio not necessarily authentic, but works well in the mix.

    Oreo Cookies

    I just saw Oreos with orange colored cream/Halloween graphics on the package at the supermarket today and thought "really? 2 months early?"

    Dinner 2021

    My fallback summer dinner, grilled chicken and corn/tomato salad.
  10. Another health issue (possibly) is the phosphoric acid in soda affecting bone density...so women who drink a lot of soda without counteracting with calcium may have higher incidence of osteoporosis.
  11. Margaret, this is of interest! Do you have any general guidelines you use for nibs to vodka ratio?
  12. You can also cook them and make veggie patties ("burgers"), or vegetarian "meatballs". Both of which can be frozen.

    Maybe coconut cream or avocado?

    2021 Farmers' Markets

    Not a Farmer's Market (we have a small one in my town on Tues. night) but my favorite secret farmstand had ripe tomatoes today. I spied them on the way to an appointment, so I stopped on my way back. Got 2 nice specimens for $1 each. He had a little bit of okra, and one pint container of multi-hued cherry tomatoes. It's not on my usual route, so I'll have to remember to check back in 2 weeks to see what veggies start to show up, last year he had some nice eggplant.
  15. I never thought about Beano for garlic (assume it would also work for onions), good to know!

    Breakfast 2021

    Good for steamy summer day...peach, unsalted cottage cheese, toasted sliced almonds. The peaches I've gotten recently have been very good.
  18. I wound up making compote with this batch, added some julienned orange rind which is really nice, and a smidge of cardamom.
  19. My husband isn't crazy about figs, so I'll probably make compote and freeze it. I have a sad orange in the fridge so I'll put the peel to good use. Alternately contemplating a crostada...but with the heat the idea of working with any butter laden crust seems like a bad idea.
  20. and...today a bag with around 30 figs. I'm told there will be more tomorrow.😬
  21. Cup 'O Figs left on my desk, from co-worker. I'm guessing that means shortly I will be getting bags full of them.

    Lunch 2021

    Desk lunch: cous cous salad, tuna, avocado. I had bought a bag of mini avocados from TJ's and every one has been perfect so far. They work very well for single serving.
  23. Picked up a clamshell of organic black figs this morning, 8-10 figs, for once they were all ripe. $4.99. Bought some wine, as well, but that won’t be opened for a couple of days so I will have to circle back to report. A NZ sauvignon blanc and an Italian rose.

    Dinner 2021

    My husband wanted to get sushi, since he hadn’t had any since pre-Covid. Unlike the nice plates that @KennethTgot the other day, we were served on paper plates. Apparently to deal with staffing issues they decided they could do without one of the dishwashers.😕
