Patricia, would you like to send one of those melons my way?

Comment by Plinius on September 1, 2014 at 8:33am

The Dutch name of Spam. I ate it only once, but to my regret it was unforgettable.

Comment by Pat on September 1, 2014 at 7:23am

Plinius, I'm familiar with Spam. It's ubiquitous in Hawaii. However, what is Smac? Never heard of it.

Comment by Randall Smith on September 1, 2014 at 7:16am

I don't know about haggis or snails, but garlic and watermelon are good for what ails you. I dug up some fresh garlic and found it to be much stronger than what I have leftover from last year. Out goes the old.

I just read how dangerous hot dogs are for us, especially grilled. Cancer producing, you know.

Nothing about Spam or Smac but I guess they are about the same as potted meat.

Oh, yummy Patricia.  I just tried a muskmelon yesterday.  I was good, but not fully ripe.  

I've had 2 weeks of cool weather, and none of my melons are ripe yet.  Reasonably warm weather is predicted for the next week, so maybe I'll get some yet.

Garlic.  Mixed results.  In past years, I've used garlic on potatoes and loved the taste, and I've had some garlic flavored cheese that was delicious.

However, in the last few years, garlic has done nothing for me.  Maybe it depends on the kind.

I've never had escargot in a restaurant, but me and my brother both liked the snails we harvested from the ivy growing on my house in Concord CA.

Love garlic. Use it in everything from Chinese, to Italian, to Mexican, to east European, to American, and other foods.

As to the little tree slugs being ugly, I'll grant you they are after they're cooked. However, they're kind of cute when they're on the hoof, or pad, or shoe, or foot, or.....whatever.

My first objection to snails is that they are ugly.  My second is the garlic.  I can't stand the stuff!
