Chris, I meet the nicest man today at the doctor's parking lot. His car is almost twice as tall as mine and we were parked next to each other. He had a nice smile and a pleasant sounding accent. It turns out his father and grandfather were onion and potato farmers in The Netherlands and he came to the U.S. to one of the dryest areas of the country and raises onions and potatoes. We chatted and I met his wife who will be having back surgery soon. 

I asked him if he had ever eaten rouladen and he said "No". I described the ingredients and how to roll it up. He said, "OH! You mean rouladen" and he taught me how to say it with the Dutch sound.

Daniel, great looking and sounding zucchini recipes.  I've always enjoyed zucchini.  It's quite adaptable to a wide variety of preparations and added spices and flavors.  (Much like chicken!)

Bon appetit to you, dear chef!

10 Zucchini recipes, from "".   I have made the fritters twice.  They are a lot like potato pancakes, slightly different.  The secret with the fritters is to salt the shredded zucchini and let it drain in a colander for a while.  That draws out the extra water.

I also made the baked zucchini spears, really good too.

Last year I used a mandolin to slice them potato-chip thin, brushed on olive oil with crushed garlic, and dried in a food dehydrator until crisp.  Those were awesome too, but needed to be eaten right away because they lose the crispness in an hour or so.

So many people think of zucchini as a kind of a joke, because it is so prolific.  I can't imagine too much home grown food.  The limitation is my imagination.

I suspect spaghetti squash can be used for fritters too.  Not quite the same, but similar idea.

I've had this pound of hamburger in my freezer for a long time, so I decided I'd make a meatloaf. I didn't realize how many meals one could get out of a single meatloaf! The good thing is, there are many different side dishes that go well with it. I even mixed it into fetticini. Now it's time to go back to my vegetarian diet. Ha, that's a laugh.

I'm a cereal and fruit person... but I still go to the effort of actually putting loose leaf green tea in an infuser; it simply tastes much better than teabags.

Purists will shake their heads, since I brew a mug at a time rather than a proper teapot...

A leftover from our colonial past, a nice one.

Daniel, that article to which you directed us stated, 

"Sales of coffee pods grew by 138,324 percent between 2004 and 2014, according to data from Euromonitor."

Good grief! Don't they count the time, effort and money it takes to go to the store and buy all those pods? Not to mention the pod garbage that results!
Cary grinds our coffee every morning; he washes up after himself and he never leaves so much as a crumb in the kitchen. 
I have two slices of Dave's Killer Bread, toasted, with dollops of jams, or hummus, or peanut butter, and coffee. I clean up after myself. 

There is kind of a Zen to the routine, a flow of activity that occurs daily with a great deal of calm. Nice and quiet, peaceful, calm before the chores begin.

I often get spaces and punctuation wrong, stupid Dutch!

Comment by Plinius on June 19, 2016 at 10:28am

I avoid the prepared foodstuffs and I do little kitchenwork. Today: fruit and nut smoothie for breakfast (15 minutes work), bread and cheese for lunch (3 minutes), and a French beans, tomato, tofu and sambalmix for dinner (20 minutes). Washing up once a day costs 20 minutes. Easy enough, but perhaps not to a millenial...
