    Pickled garlic? Okay, I'm heading for the fridge for a dill pickle. Great snack all around.

    Cross-posted... You don't like salad? The mind boggles. I will be making my "serendipity" salad sometime soon, a canteloup-cucumber-feta concoction (there are other things). It happened a couple of years ago when hubby didn't want what I had planned for lunch. "Just a salad," he said. So he got one made of what I had. And that time I wrote the ingredients down, because it blew my socks off. And you would be pleased, there is relatively little crunching.

    Yes, cutting the beans has reduced my methane levels too.

    Hey now, that sounds good. I think I need to stay away from old standards like carrots and things that take too long to chew.

    Can't believe how much I ate today yet still came in at 1600 cals, 55% fat/29% protein/16% carb, that's 93g/112g/61g. Did a LOT of walking - couple hours. Stayed out of the car because the car is too painful on the back. Think of the gas I'm saving!

    Okay, I need recipes, gals! Zuccini thing and now canteloupe-cucumber. I read an interesting combination on mommymd's journal, which I am looking forward to trying later in the week: herring, full-fat yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, apples, and pepper.

    I found some barley and buckwheat at the bottom of a canister. Was about to throw it away, but then I made the buckwheat into a little pillow for my neck and gave the barley to the outside animals. I didn't know if anyone would eat it, but I just saw the chipmunks and squirrels shoveling it up. All's well that ends well, I hope!

    Zucchini thing -

    2 or 3 zucchini, cut in approximate matchsticks
    2 large garlic cloves, minced
    12 basil leaves, chopped
    1/3 cup pine nuts (or any nuts)
    2 tbsp butter
    1 tbsp olive oil
    salt
    1/2 to 1 cup parmesan or any cheese

    In a large saucepan, toast the nuts. Keep a close eye on them because they can burn very quickly. Pour out of plan and set aside. Melt the butter in the pan along with the olive oil. Add zucchini and salt to taste. Cook over high heat, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes. Turn down heat and add garlic, stirring for about 1 minute. Be careful as garlic burns easily. Add cheese and more butter, stirring until cheese melts and everything is well combined. Add basil at the end to preserve flavor.

    Serve with any meat you would like.

    If you don't want dairy, leave out the cheese and use all olive oil. You could also add red bell peppers, onion (sweet onions are really nice here, don't cook them very long). Or you can use feta cheese. Red chile flakes or hot sauce, maybe. Or try mint instead of basil. And...this can be made with eggplant instead. This could even be served to vegetarians! If you are around people who eat corn (shudder), they will enjoy this with fresh corn on the cob.

    Yes, all the animals for miles around come to me! I do love to feed other creatures.

    I have all those ingredients in my fridge right now! I think I will make it tomorrow, when I am eating again. Thanks, Siobhan.

    Okay, I'll post the cantaloup recipe on my journal. Dang, I forgot to buy the cucumber. Stores are probably closed today.

    You ladies are making me hungry! Whip up some onion soup and you will be quickly reminded of farting (my overly dramatic children were far from impressed). But that is true, very little gas now. I can't keep up with all these wonderful food ideas.

    I haven't found raw milk around here. There was a big deal over someone in Ontario not too long ago, the evils of unpasteurized milk. I posted a link to a story on my site. I remember as a kid we used to stop by the dairy to fill the milk jugs. Wonderful stuff.

    And I second you on salads. I have to find ways to get creative. They are also much better when someone else makes the (or so my mind tells me). Enjoy the day.
