Was feeling lazy and didn't think I was up for making supper. Then I remembered that there were some hard boiled eggs in the fridge. I figured I would make some devilled eggs. Then I figured it would be simple enough to cut up some celery and carrot sticks and make some dip. I remembered the black radishes and peeled and sliced one to go with the other crudités. We got a grocery order today, so there was also some Brie. So, that, along with some pickles and pickled onions was supper. The devilled eggs turned out spectacular and the rest was yummy too. All served with enough white wine that we are both silly now.

Ouch!

Huli is Hawaiian for turn. Marinate is a version of teriyaki. You marinade, grill, and huli often (turning it over).

In case you couldn't figure it from her name, Kaneohegirlinaz is Hawaiian.

Larry, in the North End of Boston, every weekend, even in the winter, there is a farmers market. At the end of Saturday, everything left over goes into the trash pile for the city to clean out. I used to take my granddaughter there in the afternoon and some of the sellers were quiting early. One day some Asian seller tossed a huge bag of pea pods away. She wanted me to carry it home. Her favorite veggie. "Are you kidding?" So she lifted the dang thing, placed it on her shoulder, and home we went. On public transportation no less. I don't know how, but over a month or two, I managed to make meals for her and used up those dang pea pods. Making egg rolls was a great way to cut them up and use them. Every time she wanted a quick snack, egg roll it was. I lost track of how many I made.

It is a shame how much food ends up in dumpsters in America. Good on you for saving those pea pods.

Thats pretty much where Im at, and to make things more tricky, my daughter moved out of state, my son will likely be out of the country in a month or so, so its up to me and my wife to play the ' used them up before they rot' game. Luckily I love onions ( although I may not after the next few weeks )
