Re: Hello!

Unhealthy is probably right.Before he married his diet was largly egg, chips and beans. His wife has perservered over the years and with much nagging (or is it "life coaching" as I've heard it called?) has finally got him to eat a least a few vegatables although the brocolli he eats is do...

Re: Hello!

My friends brother is also a vegatrian and makes it much harder work. He is very fussy about what he eats and the majority of veggys are off the menu because he doesn't like them, It sounds like he'd be unhealthy whether he eats vegetarian or not. Might a simple book about vegetarianism/nutrition m...

Re: Hello from Montreal

When I was younger I travelled to Montreal solely for the reason that the Lonely Planet (travel guide) said people from Montreal like to take their clothes off.

And was it true?

Introducing: black radish!

I couldn't get through the winter without black radish - ramenas as they call it in Holland, where it is much better known. It's easy to grow. We've had good and bad years for everything, but the black radish has never failed us yet. I usually eat them raw with my sandwiches, or grated in salads, bu...

Re: An alternative breakfast

The thing is, Sologne, the only ones who take part in this thread, are the ones who have interesting breakfasts they want to show of. And I bet, not every day. I'm sure most of our breakfasts are cornflakes and milk :pukeright: or toast and marmelade :profileright: !

Re: What are you reading?

I'm afraid I always ever read only Scandinavian crime novels! Especially Henning Mankell's Wallander series. I don't like violent deaths particularly, but in books it is not nearly as bad as on the telly. They must have human interest at their core. After Mankell come Arnaldur Indriðason (Iceland) a...

Re: An alternative breakfast

My favourite breakfast which I make every day: :tongue3: soup, made with 1) leftover cooking water, 2) some nice home made stock (I keep tubs of that in the freezer), 3) whatever was left from last night's meal, 4) clove of garlic, 5) a bit of precooked pumpkin :tongue3: (in winter) or umm ...

Interesting stuff Bonnie, and yes, I enjoyed reading it. Sometimes a compromise (and a new partner) is best.

The dark side of leeks, lettuce etc.

Did you know the dark green bits of leeks, lettuce etc, are by far healthiest? Iceberg lettuce, for instance, has very few nutrients: the darker types are much better for us. So if you throw away the leek tops, you are wasting a valuable source of, amongst others, beta-carotene and potassium. If you...

Re: What do I do with screwtop jars?

My best taker used to be a lady who sold homemade jam in a stall at the seaside every year. She definitely is not allowed to use recycled jars anymore, and now has to buy them in at great expense. I do know that they can still be used by the WI, and at church sales and the like. We did enquire about...
