Spud - I posted hummus recipe in discussion above.  Much cheaper and tastier to make from scratch.  I use food processor but have used a blender before too.

Patricia, what goes into your high fiber bread?

Susan, being vegetarian I don't eat seafood, but I do eat the fake chicken patties from the frozen food section at the grocery store.  They are very similar (I think, but what do I know) to a breaded filet of fish.  They make a nice sandwich with tartar sauce and pickle on a bun, like the "filet-o-fish" sandwiches they used to have at McDonalds.

Mindy, I like baking too.  I use the oven every day.

I don't cook at all.  When I lived on my own it was frozen dinners.

I like seafood.  Too bad i have allergies.  Had one shrimp the other day and my dad was afraid that I was going to stop breathing. 

Haven't swam in the ocean since I was about 8.  We were vacationing in Key West and I got stung by a jellyfish.  Been afraid of the ocean ever since.  No problem with swimming pools or man made lakes.

Thanks for the invite. I love food.

Daniel, I very much like chickpeas and buy hummus from a store once in a while, but it's not great.  I want to make my own.  How do you make it?

Loren. I love North Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Indian, Thai, and my own, mainly baked.

Love love love garlic. Grow my own for the most part. Sorry Patricia!

Also Middle Eastern. Its super easy making home made hummus, tastes mucho better, we do that a couple times a week. I haven't mastered falafel and tabouli but love eating it. Same for tamales. Gotta master those.

Joan I love your kitchen! It looks like a real home, full of love.

Oh, yes Patricia.  Now you mentioned it, I seem to remember abalone needing pounding, and I think I did do that before cooking.

Yours truly LOVES good food.  My wife and I regularly enjoy Mexican, Indian, Italian, Greek, Lebanese, Chinese and Japanese Hibachi.  We just had jambalaya for dinner a few days ago and I'm looking forward to her killer gumbo this weekend.  Also had a Peruvian restaurant open up not far from us and that was fun to explore.  Steak now and then is good, and I LOVE a good burger!  Haven't tried sushi yet, but some time or other...!

In my travels, I've been lucky enough to have felafel in Israel, curry in India and Pepper Crab in Singapore (VERY messy but VERY GOOD!).  I've also been able to drink Guinness in Ireland (oh, MAN!!!) and single-malt whisky in Scotland (YUM!).

Put succinctly, LET'S EAT!

I like almost all foods.  Just wish I enjoyed cooking.

I think I might enjoy cooking more if I were doing it with friends like you speak of Joan.  Sounds wonderful.

Swimming is fun for me also, plus I took-up SCUBA diving when I lived in California.  I was a little concerned about sharks and I nearly drowned once, but still enjoyed it.

I picked-up a few abalone when I went diving, but never learned how to cook them so they tasted good.  Never ate the expensive things at a restaurant, so don't know if I'd like them any better there.

I like all seafood except crab and lobster (& abalone?).  They taste too bland.  But I do very much like the little lobster like critters that I've harvested from fresh water, called crayfish.  Also called crawfish, crawdads mudbugs, or freshwater lobsters.  At least I like the ones I got from a creek near where I live.
