All about food.
Latest Activity: on Thursday
I have had some little yellow tomatoes that a friend grew in hanging pots...the shape is like tiny light bulbs...intense tomato flavor! YUM!
About the colored corn chips; there are a couple of harmless dyes that are added to medicines that treat kidney and bladder infections...they do color urine either red or blue...I guess so you and your doctor know the medicine is working...the blue dye also alleviates the pain of UTI. Been there, done that in my wild youth....[blush]
I've been on a Yukon Gold potato kick recently. Personal opinion is that they are the absolute best for mashed potatoes.And, I'll also cut up raw ones, drizzle with a little olive oil, sprinkle on salt,pepper and rosemary, and roast in the oven.
My son-in-law, Nate, grew 19 different varieties of regular potatoes last summer (he's an organic vegetable farmer; www.silverthorn-farm.org). Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, the "colored" ones don't sell worth a darn. Wonder what he'll plant this year?
Patricia, you can order them from Burpee's Seed Catalog
This is what they look like.
There's no explaining the phobias that some people have regarding foods. The last guy I dated informed me he didn't eat anything green. This included everything from lettuce to green M&M's, grapes, chocolate chip mint ice cream and every conceivable edible substance in between. Cooking for him and putting up with his silliness was like dealing with a fussy 6-year old child. I'm surprised we lasted nine months together.
Interesting about blue potatoes. I never knew there was such an animal until about three months ago when they showed up in a roasted potato medley aside one of the entrees I was serving in first class on the airplane.
I once bought some corn chips that were colored a dark red, a dark green, and a dark blue. The next time I went to the restroom, my urine was a dark green (or blue, or red, forget which). It scared me for a few minutes until I remembered the corn chips.
sk8eycat, when I had a garden, I grew blue potatoes. The potato meat and skin is blue. And, they were fairly good as baked potatoes, until you added butter, mashed it in, and they turned green. Like the cornmeal, it tasted the same, but had all the appetizing appearance of a refrigerator experiment gone bad.
