All these sides sound great! I love refrigerater pickles, recipe varies every time I make them.
I bought a jar of McCormack Sesame seeds many years ago. I used them once and a couple of years later when I was cleaning out, I tossed them. Not because they were rancid, but because they were old. To this day I have never had a need for sesame seeds. (I can't digest them.) Considering that they were a national name brand, would they have gone rancid? They were the white kind.

Addie, no one can digest them. If they're consumed whole, they just go right through. That's how fiber cleans out the intestines.

Yes, they would have been rancid after sitting in a cabinet for two years. It doesn't matter what brand they are - like other foods, they just won't be fresh after that long.

Thank you for the quick response. So glad I tossed them and didn't try to use them again.

What GG said. I'm keeping mine in the fridge from now on. Like I do with sesame oil and any other nuts and seeds.

I actually keep my nuts and seeds in the freezer, but I keep sesame oil in the fridge.

*Bump*

This thread is sure worth a re-read this time of year for inspiration!

Any other ideas for this hot weather?

I haven't re-read it yet, however, my eating habits have changed a lot in the past 3 years.

One of my staples is avocado. I put it in salads, slice it like a side, make guacamole, or put it in a sandwich. While it is good any time of year, it is one of my summer staples!
