Yep, I've tried it GG, but I admit it's been a very long time. Good idea to maybe try it in a broth to see if my tastes have changed, providing one of my local cooking friends wants to donate one to me.
In the past the only good thing I had to say about them is they're cute.

Hee hee! Cute for sure. I was surprised that I liked chai tea, too. I'm not a tea drinker, but I love the spices in chai.

It was fabulous tonight! However, i may have to pop for that special kaiwe liquid smoke from Hawaii.

Great sounding dinners! Joey, that looks delish.

I was happy with just a few cheese and cracker nibbles for dinner this evening - was still pretty full from a late lunch with a friend. I had a shrimp, mango and avocado salad on spinach and other mixed greens, with a light citrus vinaigrette dressing. Boy, was that good.

I absolutely detest licorice, but I find a bit of fennel or star anise can be really enhance some dishes. What would Italian sausage be without a bit of fennel?

We had ABTs and pasta salad served with Grolsch Premium Lager and akvavit. Yeah, that was yummy.

A friend brought some edible pea pods over so I made a chicken-pea pod stir fry with a peanut sauce, jasmine rice.

Thanks for the advice and even at this late stage of cooking in my life, I'm subject to change..just for the fun of it.

Admit it, Kayelle, you're "subject to change" just to keep Souschef on his toes.


Did two-store grocery shopping on Saturday and came home to no leftovers. Since I almost never feel like cooking after wandering a large store or two full of food, Himself played delivery driver and picked up a steak bomb calzone from a local pizza place. I had planned on getting one of those sometime this month anyway, since I had a $2 off coupon from the back of a grocery register tape. The thing cost us all of $6.99, plus tax. Not bad for the two of us!
