Celebrated my deceased parents "75th wedding anniverary" and the Winter Solstice by eating out with my sister. We had Chinese food, buffet style, at a place called "Everything OK", no question mark, although they come around and ask! The food was very good. I stuffed myself for $8.00. Sometimes you just have to live it up.

I had an interesting dish last night. Fried cabbage and sausage (with onion) on a bed of spaghetti (to simplify). It doesn't particularly sound good, but it was! Acorn squash on the side.

Joan, I susoect not. I think the o,dest seed ever grown was a 2000 year old Judean palm - extinct until that seed was germinated. It turned out to be male, but may hybridize with related palms. By backcrosding for a few generations, an almost comlpletly Judean palm could be created. I dont know how sex chromosomes work in palms, but suspect the descendents could never be 100% pure Judean palm. But close.

What they might be able to do is clone selected genes to re-generate them. Of course, then they woukd be GMO

I wonder if any of these seeds can sprout? If so, I hope someone saves the seeds for future generations; we may need the heirloom source.

How's this for leftovers - 10,000 year old lentils, peas, fava beans, and lentils found in Israel. 

Amazing we still eat these foods 10,000 years later.

I have tried to cut back on eating wheat products, including cereals, all because I read that arthritis can be alleviated by eliminating wheat (and other grains) from ones diet. Like sugar, I haven't been able to completely refrain from eating wheat. Since my thumb arthritis comes and goes, I'm not making any conclusions as to whether cutting back has helped. I'll try Michael's suggestion.

Try Fenugreek and Termeric for arthritis. Available in pill form at Walmart and other places, they are both cheap and good also in stomach and indigestion issues. You can also break the pills apart and use them as seasoning when you prepare food. They are actually a seasoning anyway but have many uses.

I'm off work for the next week.  Maybe I should make some of these Rosemary Spritz cookies.  The sugar content is low - I guess they are in the savory direction, rather than sweet.  Like a snack cracker.

Rosemary Spritz Cookies.  I wonder if I can leave out the heavy cream.  They already have a lot of butter.  Or maybe coconut oil instead of the cream?

Joan, one thing I always remind myself of is, different things work differently for different people.  I am not aware of a gluten issue for rheumatoid arthritis.  If someone eliminated gluten and found a benefit, then that's important for them.  But I would hate for anyone to do without the experience of baking and eating home-made bread, noodles, pasta, due to a misinformed fad about the dangers of gluten.  Whatever works, works, but I hope the medical treatments help him.  R.A. is no picnic.

Daniel, I am familiar with the noodle making genius of the Chinese. A restaurant brought in a Chinese relative several years ago and he put on demonstrations of stretching, folding, and stretching some more until he had the dough just right for his noodles. Then he showed different ways of preparing them with different sauces.  OH! those menus were so good. Sadly, he is no longer there, nor is the mom and pop who owned the shop. I wonder what happened to them?
