Vegetables are people too!

Has mom spent too much time in the garden??

So you wanna eat or talk philosophy?  Personally, I like doing both..

People gather using the backdrop of food for comfort, company, idea sharing, business, family and a myriad of other reasons.  Filling my belly and my brain at the same time is one of my favorite pass-times.  Not that i don't love eating in front of the TV as well (filling my brain in a different way), but if i don't have a meaningful meal once in a while, i start to feel like something is missing.  Focusing on the food and the people you are with is one way to counteract the isolation of many of our jobs and lives these days (she says while typing on her computer!..)  If i was rich I'd probably find a way to eat out everyday with people i liked.

This idea carries me into the preparing of food too.  Consciously cooking and choosing your ingredients becomes a way of spreading the love and the nutrients!

  1. something isn't smelling fishy!  I have discovered a wonderful way to cook cod loin (Highliner) found individually frozen & wrapped in big bags at Costco.  The recipie is found on the back of the package -that everyone ignores-, but in desperation to eat more fish (I hate the fishy smell and taste) I tried it  with some modifications and now I want MORE!  So here it is:
    For Fish haters everywhere.
    1/8-1/4 cup Melted butter,(just can't avoid the dairy) 2 tablespoons saute diced sweet onion, add juice of 1 fresh squeezed lemon, fresh rosemary, 1-2 teaspoon of tamari sauce and 1/4 tsp. ginger (I press my ginger through a garlic press).  Whisk together and pour over one or two frozen cod loins , bake  24 minutes at 450  and wow the smell will bring the neighbours instead of the bears!  It doesn't taste fishy and all you smell is the aromic sauce.
    Vary proportions and ingredients to see what suits your fancy.
