That's interesting, Spud.  I admit, if I saw Watermelon Roll in the store I'd be inclined to try it also.  I'm curious as to what you didn't like about it. 

I find many artificially flavored sherbets to be overly sweet for my tastes.

Yesterday, at WinCo foods, I saw something interesting, that I "had" to buy.  It's a Watermelon Roll.  Watermelon and Lemon Sherbet with chocolate chip seeds.  Not the best tasting thing I've eaten, but kind of a nice treat.

Daniel, cooking wouldn't be any fun if one didn't experiment every once and awhile. That goes for trying different varieties of garden veggies.

It's too early for pumpkin pie (in my opinion). I grew some. Actually, they were volunteer plants. I get a lot of volunteers--squash and tomatoes for sure.

Once in a while, Costco carries a roasted red pepper pesto that is out of this world, so good. I decided to make some from scratch. It wasn't even close to the Costco stuff. Oh well.

I decided that using starch to thicken pumpkin pie does not work as well as using evaporated milk. Made one today with evaporated milk. That was good.

Started picking a new variety of sweet corn, "Mirai". Whoa, way to sweet. Also watery instead of creamy. I won't be growing that one again,

So, food today was plus / minus. I made a loaf of bread for sandwiches, haven't tried it yet but probably good I think.

A very good article! I reminded myself to eat slower and with more attention.

I enjoyed reading the article, Daniel. I love Greek food and their "family style" way of partaking. I want to move there!

However, the French method really sounds good--wine, bread, cheese, etc!  So the author thinks "the paradox" is solved by walking. I'm a believer!

What the eorld's healthiest diets have in common... It's Huffpost but seems reasonable.

Reading between the lines, it's lifestyle as much as it is the specific the items people eat. Add to that, a corporate lifestyle with factory made so-called food, is not on the list.

Tamales were great! Ning is in China now. I think I will make another batch of tamales tonight.
My vegetarian sibstitutions

substituted one cube vegetAble bullion in eater, instead of chicken broth in the masa

used crisco (I know, Mike Pollan would have me shot) instead of lard for the mada.

Filling was sauteed peppers, onion, roma tomatoes, and garlic.

Mmmmmmm, tamales.

Quiche with chard for me tonight. Homemade pizza last night. How'd the tamale turn out, Daniel?
