Speaking of eating (or not) grass, I bought and ate a bison burger last night. Expensive meat, but so worth it--delicious and good for you.  For many years now, I've wanted to graze a half dozen or so bison on my farm. I keep trying to talk my son-in-law into including them into his overall management plan. He's skeptical. I'll continue working on him!

As far as I know, only horses and cattle (and similar mammals) can digest grass.  Cats and dogs will swallow some as a purgative, and I don't know if humans can tolerate it at all.  Too much cellulose, or something.

But there are people who will try anything, including clay, cornstarch, and library paste,

Never tried grass.  I'll try anything that some people eat, but never heard of anyone eating grass.

Thanks Spud, I got it. and it is funny. We permaculture people would pull out the grass and plant spinach or something.

Joan, I sent it to your page.  If you can't see it there, I'll repost it here.

Spud, Ruth's comment didn't come through. Do you mind sending it to me. Hate to bother you. 

It was the "Thought you foodies would get a kick out of this from cheezburger."

Hard to read, Ruth, but certainly true to form. I used to be a salad dressing addict. No more. Olive oil and vinegar only, nowadays.

I patted myself on the back as I feasted on my omelet this morning. Organic egg with mushrooms, tomatoes, onion, garlic, spinach--all "home grown" (including the mushroom). I did add a little cheese and ketchup, ala Ranch dressing. Tsk.

Never tried--and don't ever plan to--Lamprey meat. Sounds awful. Glad you're feeling better, Spud.

I made pizza dough out of coconut flour the other day. Unusual, but quite good.

I'm still not over the illness, but my body is winning over the pathogens.  I felt much better yesterday, and the same today.

This morning I watched "Oregon Field Guide" on TV, and they had a piece about Lampreys on the Willamette falls.  The native tribe has been harvesting them for food for thousands of years, but the Lampreys are in decline.  Scientists are trying to figure-out why.

The reason I mentioned it here, is that they said Lampreys have a strong fish flavor, stronger than anything else, so they are an acquired taste.

I think I would like them because I usually like strong flavors, and especially at my age where my taster is declining in sensitivity.

I will definitely try some if I ever get the chance.
