    Default Ping: Om


    Thank you! Wow what a surprise! Thanks for sending samples of so
    many items I either haven't found, been wondering about or just plain
    have never seen like the black popcorn and the black rice noodles.
    They are perfect to use when cooking for my sweetie of a daughter in
    law. Do you have a favorite recipe to use them with?

    What were the live plants you sent me? I'm going to share them with
    my green thumbed son in law and I will share the garlic chive and wild
    morning glory seeds with him too. He'll probably even get them to
    grow. LOL! Thanks for the Pink Himalayan Salt. I just threw out my
    salt grinder and need to replace it, so I'll do it ASAP.

    You are most welcome!

    To be honest, I did purchase some of those for myself as well, (they
    were in the health food section at the local grocery store) but I've not
    tried them yet. I have some mixed frozen seafood (including some whole
    mussels in the shell) and shrimp and squid and stuff. I'd planned to
    add an alfredo sauce to that and use the rice noodles for that.

    I do love the flavor of the colored rices!

    I cook the rices in stock. The beans are the black soy low carb beans I
    told you about.

    Mexican Oregano as promised. :-)
    That's from my large bush out in front. The plant is over 10 years old
    now and a good 3 ft. tall.

    Kewl! As luck would have it my son-in-law gave me some Rootone last
    weekend so I'll be able to propagate them - yea!

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    Unless it's a pre-arranged gift exchange of some sort, announcing this
    kind of crap is just tacky. It's a way of saying, "Look, Om's not as
    much of a bitch as she seems".

    Carol S. had to do it last month when Peter sent her stuff, too. Just
    to try and convince us that Peter wasn't an asshole.

    No one doubts she sent it out of kindness.
    But it is just *not done* to make grand sweeping public displays out of
    information that was only of interest to the two of them.
    We all know Om doesn't have a lot of experience with social customs and
    friends so she gets a pass out of pity. But most First Grade teachers
    know one doesn't advertise their birthday party invitations to the
    entire class who didn't receive one. It is bad form and tacky. I would
    have thought sf would be up on those social rules....alas.. I was
    obviously mistaken.

    Actually, it was in reply to another who didn't realize he was a real
    person. It matched with another post showing pictures of the box contents
    on the alt.binaries.food site. He'd posted pictures of what I sent but I
    was having trouble transferring them to the computer until recently.

    The real live Peter does exchanges just for the fun of it with more than me.
    Our exchange was in spring 2009. I wanted something you can't get where I
    am and he wanted to try some spices and stuff he can't get there so we each
    packed up interesting stuff local to us and mailed it to each other. I
    remember he particularily wanted to try File' powder and I added in old bay,
    bells seasoning, and a bunch of local blends not sold more than 100 miles
    from my home. Neither of us shipped common stuff we knew the other could
    get. It was even easier for me as I'd been to his country about 10 times
    and even once to his home town so I was pretty familiar with both what I
    wanted and what he doesn't have common access to in the the grocery stores,
    specifically the Brisbane ones.

    I did an exhange with Gerardus as well as part of the abf xmas exchange. I
    lost access to that group for a bit so don't know if they did one this year.
    It's just a fun thing some of us enjoy.

    >>How to win Internet friends and influence people: Send care packages
    >>with the condition that you must announce it publicly.


    Actually it's more a reciprocal event but the abf xmas exchange is a random
    drawing so you send something to one person and get a 'secret santa' gift
    back from another.

    > Squirt did you ever think that she might of sent it out of kindness? Oh
    > that's
    > right, you don't think, nor do you know anything about kindness, Loser.


    I think he's just miffed that no one exchanges gift packages with him? Part
    of the fun is discussing all the neat goodies and answering questions on
    what to do with the items you sent if they don't know.

    I'm still using up the sea salt Peter sent. I use it for lightly salt
    crusting the homemade lovely breadsticks and soft baked pretzels. It's one
    of those little luxuries I'd never bought myself, but once I had a box of it
    found we like it immensely in the right application.

    <snork> I sent it pretty much unannounced. It even had a tracking

    Sorry, but I find that red sauces with tomatoes tend to bury the flavor
    of seafood. A white lemon sauce on the other hand might work well. I
    happen to, like many people, enjoy a light cheese flavor with seafood.

    I've not totally made up my mind yet on what to use,,, but a tomato
    sauce is WAY out!
