That was my guess why you switched Randy.

Comment by Randall Smith on February 7, 2015 at 7:29am

Turkey IS cheaper, but that's not the reason I switched. It was the "better for you" theory that I fell for--less fat, etc. No longer duped, I'm back to the good stuff!

Why did you switch to turkey substitutes?  Price?  Taste?  I like smoked turkey wings and things, but they're awfully difficult to find in the stores.

Comment by Randall Smith on February 6, 2015 at 7:38am

For several years I've substituted turkey products for "real" meat--sausages, "hamburger", bacon. I think I've forgotten what ground beef and pork taste like. I've accepted the turkey taste as natural. I'm not sure about the facts surrounding soy products. I've heard both good and bad.

So have I, but soy doesn't agree with everyone. Soy doesn't bother me, nd I even like a giant soy hamberger.

My bacon is vegetarian. For the most part, I just have it in summer for BLTs. Most people here would hate it, but I like it.

What damned fool was it that decided to make bacon out of a turkey? Heard  that line in an all black movie once and laughed my head off.

Second try at this post. First one went to the wrong place.

Many thanks!  I think I'll start the soaking tonight.

As for differences in food....I haven't been able to drink anything stronger than a 4oz glass of very dry champagne once in a while for 40 years.  I get migraines from alcohol.  Actually, they are histamine headaches, but it's the same mechanism as migraines....and they sometimes have lasted for days.

Fish and shellfish, which I have loved all my life, triggers gout.

T'ain't much fun, this aging thing.  About the only benefit is that I get to say what I think without causing an uproar....

Patricia, you silly thing, we don't all have to like, or eat, the same things....wouldn't things be boring if we did?

I have been meaning to ask you about adding baking soda and vinegar to bean-soaking water....HOW MUCH of each per quart? I usually soak a lb of beans in 3 quarts of cold water overnight.

(And doesn't mixing vinegar with baking soda ADD gas?  I mean, if you mix the two with nothing else, it fizzes violently.  Makes a handy drain cleaner, for one thing.)
