I'm having the last of the tom yum soup. I will probably have cheese and crisp rye bread later. I ordered groceries yesterday and there was a special on trying out some cheeses. They are local cheeses that I have never heard of before. I'm really curious. One seems to be a camembert style cheese, one is a soft cheese with herbes de Provence, and I don't really have any guesses about the last one.

Do you have your groceries delivered Taxi? I sure would if I lived there.

Those cheeses sound like a real taste treat..hope you ordered some good bread and wine too.

Holy guacamole! Our weather has been nothing more than shi... You get the idea.


Rain, rain, rain. Last night after we went to bed and got up this morning, we'd had 6 inches of the wet stuff. So..


I made a long-cooking roast beast, along with mashed taters and buttered peas.


Maybe we'll forget about the rain.


Our yard looks like chocolate syrup!!!!!

Yes, I do get them delivered. I didn't order any bread because, they don't list ingredients on the website for the stuff they sell. I can only find some of it online. So much stuff has soy, it isn't funny. I once ordered pickled jalapenos and there was soy oil in it. But, I have some really good bread at home and lots of my Swedish rye crisp bread. Yes, I also got wine in that order..

Taxi, you've mentioned you can't have soy often but after all these years I've never known why. If I'm being too nosy please forgive me and ignore my question.

This area I live in is delivering groceries from all of the supermarkets, most giving free delivery over $25.00. I never did it, but it's great for those that can't get out easily.

I tried a new recipe tonight for guacamole, from March/April Milk Street. Had some yogurt, raw garlic, lemon juice, and some spices, and topped with sesame seeds. Good; about as good as that last new guac with the hard boiled eggs, though not as good as the classic, with fresh tomatoes and chiles.

My doctor told me that for me, estrogenic foods would increase my risk of having a stroke in my eyeball. After doing some checking on the internet, I found out that properly fermented soy, like soy sauce and miso (but not fermented tofu) are not estrogenic. That was a relief. No sweet potatoes or yams for me either.

This pick a deal is always a winner. Salads hit the spot, too. Now on to some Graeter's double chocolate chip ice cream.

I threw together a stir fry of leftovers. Shrimp, veggies and rice, and added a scrambled egg and a little splash of soy sauce towards the end. Hit the spot.
