When you said "spices exploding", my first thought was "Oh, no!  More wasted food."  Then I watched it and found it beautiful.  

Wanted to see it full-screen, so I went to YouTube and watched it several times full-screen.  In case anyone else wants to do that, here it is:  Thanks FA.

I don't want to be negative, but I just hope they utilized those spices afterwards.  Never having money to spare, I don't like wasting things.

I find the videos of exploding watermelons fascinating also, but they bother me because I love watermelons so much and have a hard time growing them without much land and in this cold climate.

A great way to make a nutritious cup of soup. Use homemade stock, or from the store, toss in whatever is fresh that has a similar cooking time, summer squash, shredded cabbage, fresh or frozen beans, corn, peas, celery, any of the brassicas, add something left over that needs longer cooking time, i.e. onions, carrots, rice; toss in a a sprinkling of some herbs collected from the garden, or your favorite from the store, and experiment with timing.

Toast some day-old bread and smear with hummus, yogurt, cream cheese, or whatever tastes good to you to go with your cup of soup. Oh! I forgot asparagus! Yummm! 

You can adust the seasoning to make it Asian, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Brazilian, any cuisine.  

You can have a different combination every day.

Hello all

I am a longtime foodie and lately ive been specializing in using the microwave to make fresh food, and gourmet at that. Any thoughts?

Omar Khayyam - A Book Of Verses Underneath The... by poetictouch

"A Book Of Verses Underneath The Bough - Quatrain XII of The Rubaiyat Of Omar Khayyam - 5th Edition - Translated by Edward FitzGerald (1809-1883) - From the 2009 BBC documentary The Genius Of Omar Khayyam."

A Book of Verses underneath the Bough,
A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread--and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness--
Oh, Wilderness were Paradise enow!"

The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám

Or for Randall,

"A bowl of oatmeal....  with hickory nuts and cinnamon

At home in Indiana

About to head to Florida for some mangos!"


Not quite the same rhythm, but whatever works.

Nothing beats hot oatmeal for breakfast! My kids grow and mill it (if that's the right word), so it's not your standard processed oats. I'm always experimenting with "additives". Like this morning I added dried cranberries, hickory nuts, frozen blueberries, persimmon pulp, and the usual brown sugar (dang, I forgot the cinnimon). Still, yum!

I bet the vegetable prep water gives the bread a nice texture.

Mindy you are right about pie. There will be apple pie today. I mix a teaspoon of vanilla into the sugar, before mixing the sugar with the apples, for extra flavor. The crust has a sesame seed topping. I sprinkle the seeds on the crust then use the roller to firm them in, before putting the crust on the pie.

Not senile moments. Just being human. Young people's brains are not machines either. :-)
