    oh, you have it Lee!!

    fortunately, i LOVE spices and......... 'cultural foods'?? for lack of a
    better word (versus over cooked roast and veggies cooked to mush with
    the standard 1/2 plate of potatoes, some days even with gravy!) LOL

    i don't eat as MUCH as i used to, but i eat BETTER every day in every way

    now, time to check the N Indian food cooking lessons followed by BUFFET
    for $39/head......... 3 hours of lessons, all you can eat and your
    choice of wine or beer

    hmmmmmmmmmmmmm yup, that's double what i'd spend on a meal, but think
    that's going to be a GREAT lesson! ((we've had samosa's and such from
    that restaurant via friends before))

    You bet, Lee

    but, it took me a year or so to 'get back on my feet again'

    and...... i'm thrilled, no more bland pre-weighed food that must come
    separately (heaven forbid we have a casserole!)

    but, i like FLAVOUR in my food

    Oooh, after six full days an assault, a biting cutting critique
    of a most negative vile sort. I am crestfallen; ah woe, alas,
    mea maxima culpa. And the Patriots lost also; has the
    limitless mercy of the Almighty finally hit a speedbump?
    I am crestfallen, truly bereft of any semblance of joy.

    When I had GD I made most everything as a casserole unless I was eating a
    salad. I found it easier to factor in casserole form. I would simply add
    up the counts for everything that went in there and then divide it by 4 or 6
    or 8 or whatever worked out best. Woe be to anyone that dared take a
    portion that wasn't an exact square, rectangle or wedge because then it
    would mess me up!

    May I interest you in pig ear in aspic? My Grandfather(RIP) liked
    eating that stuff. I don't know how to make it, but you can bet your
    sweet bippies I won't be eating it any time soon.
    If I was a starving man, mad with hunger, lost for weeks in the bush
    and I was offered pig ear in aspic, I'd turn it down.
    I do like my pig tails though.

    One of my past hobbies was collecting old cookbooks. As in really old. I
    saw more things put in aspic in those things than I cared to. I've never
    eaten aspic and don't care to.
