Comment by The Flying Atheist yesterday

I love shopping at Aldi.  There's one two blocks from my house.  Yes, the prices are very good compared to other grocery stores.

Randy, Aldi never has carried Tabasco sauce.  You'll have to obtain it elsewhere.  Don't give up!!

And Tobasco is also one of those condiments where a little goes a long way.

Randy, for what it's worth, I like the Thai sauce for eggs or potatoes.  It only needs a small amount.  That's if it is the red pepper sauce, they might have other things labeled Thai sauce.

We don't have Aldi here.  We shopped at Aldi all of the time in Chicago.  It's a great store for good prices.

I tried to grow broccoli last year and it didn't work out.   Maybe try again. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on Saturday

I plan on growing broccoli this year.  If I get a good harvest, I'll just throw the stems in the compost pile.

Comment by Randall Smith on Saturday

My freezer has bags of frozen broccoli (and corn, beans, asparagus, etc.) from last year's garden. I prepare a stir-fry about every week because I can't decide on which veggie to eat! I didn't find any tabasco sauce at Aldi yesterday, but I did find Thai sauce. I hesitated over it for a long time before putting it back on the shelf. Yes, I'm a chicken. I'll stick to soy sauce for my stir-frys.

Thanks Carl.  I'll look for those.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on Friday

Idaho, you may have to splurge and buy the frozen broccoli flowerettes if you prefer not to deal with the hard skins.  They're usually a bit more pricey than the bags of chopped up flowerettes and stems.

Comment by Idaho Spud on Friday

I bought a large head of broccoli several days ago and have been eating broccoli soup the last 3 days.  Delicious and gets my bowls moving the way they should.  

I plan on buying more, but I hate the work they take to prepare.  Cutting and washing takes a long time, especially cutting the hard skin off the trunks.

I would buy cut-up frozen broccoli, but every brand I've tried, have too much of the hard skin, which I don't enjoy eating.

Tabasco always gets added to my macaroni/tuna salad.

Comment by Daniel W on Friday

I changed the broccoli apple salad linked previously to a cauliflower apple salad.  I also substituted walnuts for pecans, and dried cherries for dried cranberries.  It was OK but I liked the original version better.

Comment by Daniel W on Friday

Randy, the older I get, the more I love hot peppers.  I don't know why.  I mixed a teaspoon of hot sauce with the dressing for my last batch of potato salad.  That was great!  It is an acquired taste, I know.  There will be hot peppers again in the garden 2017.

We have lots of yard apple trees in my town where people just let the fruit rot.  It's sad.  Picking up citrus seems very exotic indeed.
