Randy, is that edible fungi? Nice photo!

I just made some pimiento cheddar sandwich spread. Comfort food, not health food. Not bad, and better than the grocery store hyper salted c

And I have just the place for you all to go--my kid's organic farm. You should check out their newsletter and see what they just did (Silverthorn-farm).

On another note: Last week in the Michigan woods, I found some coral mushrooms (they look like coral), edible and delicious, although I couldn't remove all the sand. Nobody else in my group of 12 was willing to try them until they saw that I was unaffected. They thought for sure I'd die! Next night, most everybody ate some.

Next Friday, Qiana, then we'll go together!

After a couple of years living in Portugal and shopping at open air markets, we got used to cooking pretty much exclusively with fresh, real ingredients.

I read quite often now that processed foods make us behave like junkies - and the solution is, of course, to buy as little processed food as possible. I've made some progress on that road, I still buy bread, yoghurt and cheese but I eat sparingly of it. Things like ketchup, sauces, mixed spices, cake, cookies, ready-made meals, etc are not allowed in my kitchen. Our main food consists of fruit and vegetables, and the unstoppable food cravings have calmed down. Much better! Does this sound Spartan?

Chris you are right about not shopping on an empty stomach. It's weird, now even the hardware store sells chips by the checkout counter. Not small bags either, twice the size of 10 years ago. They say "buy me..." I wonder if they put heroin in them? It's not on the ingredient list. :-)

I do have trends - eat one thing over and over until I'm tired of it, then find something else.

I made an apple pie yesterday after watching those videos on sugar. Now it seems too sweet.
I usually use 3/4 the sugar of the recipe, might have to reduce to 1/2.

Oh, Om addicted to potato salad. I could eat that until the cows come home.

I don't think I'm addicted to any one food, but I do eat too much.  Especially ice cream.

I love chocolate, but don't eat an excessive amount.  I love pizza, but don't eat much, mostly because it's so expensive.

I used to love potato chips, but now they taste bland, so I almost never eat them.  Even when I loved them, I didn't eat too many because the price hurt my pocketbook.

I love Cashews, Pistachios, Black walnuts, Brazil nuts, and Pine nuts, but eat very few because of the price.

Most of all, I love mashed potatoes, with brown gravy, but don't eat many of them for a different reason.  I'm lazy about preparing them.

Never go shopping on an empty stomach! And take a shopping list.

You're not the only one "addicted" to chips, Daniel! The trick is not to buy them. Easier said than done, hwever!
