Yes, but you're an Ogre'ess, so you don't count. Everyone knows that ogres and ogre'ess's love cod liver oil, with earwax on rye.

Oh, and that last virtual snowball you sent my way, it hit me just as I was getting into my car. It splattered all over the side of my face, and down into my shirt. It got my seat and steering wheel all wet, and splattered all of my neighbors for a half-mile radius. Wadaya think this is, snowball chunkin?

You can get the RDA of omega 3 fatty acids from three walnuts.

Chief's Tip of the Day

Remember to take into account any salt that may already be in food items to be used in recipes where foods are combined, such as lasagna, casseroles, stews, mixed rice dishes, etc. Items like sausages, including hot dogs, have a fair amount of salt already in them. if other ingredients have salt as sell, or if you normally add salt to what you are cooking, you may end up with something too salty.

Case in point: I was making a familiar rice pilaf last night, and changed three ingredients. I used two pre-made soup mixes, an onion, and a chicken soup mix to season the rice, and chopped hot dogs, along with celery and onion. Normally, this dish is made with a packet of chicken soup mix, browned, ground beef, celery, and onions, and is great tasting. Last night, the hot dogs were clearly too salty for the dish. I only added two chopped dogs. Lesson learned.

It's easy to start with unsalted ingredients, and season to taste. When using pre-salted foods, you have to be more careful.

And that why my salt shaker sits on the shelf unused.

I often find that I've made a pot of beans without any added salt, due to the addition of andouille, ham, chorize, etc.

Now I wait until the beans are done before tasting, and often refrigerate them overnight before adding any seasonings.
