Early margarine in the USA was sold white with a dye to color it because of laws preventing it from being sold with the dye incorporated as it could be confused with butter (Can we say "Dairy Lobby"?).


How does this look for a start at Pate'?

Re my traipse down memory lane in last post - I’m pretty sure that dentists had (still have?) shares of candy companies in their (pre -fluoridation) investment portfolios.

For me it was Mrs Mosher's, a triangular store at the intersection of Queen St, Birmingham St, and Artillery Place (gone now of course). I remember her counting out a dollar's worth of black balls into the paper sack. Also comic books, pop in glass bottles, and chips in foil bags!

Default Fun with lentils

While recovering ftom December's over indulgence (booze, lobster, mincemeat tarts, shortbreads, etc) we decided to have at least one veg night every week. One still needs protein, so that means pulses, legumes, beans, lentils.

Last week I made a dish of brown lentils cooked with finely diced leeks, celery, carrots, parsnips, squash, kale, and mushrooms with fresh herbs, a splash of vermouth, and all simmered in home made chicken stock. (Is the chicken stock cheating? I don't care, I never claimed to be vegetarian just reducing meat intake and increasing veg.) It was delicious served over couscous.

Tonight we went Indian, I cooked toor dal ("red" lentils which look like small yellow split peas, aka tuval dal) with carrot, potato, cabbage, kale, peppers and cauliflower, with lots of spice. Like sambar but no tamarind. Some of the peppers were ripe red jalapenos picked fresh from plants I have been growing from seed. Anyway served over plain basmati rice, tasty and spicy but not over the top.

Not sure what to cook next week, maybe something with chick peas.

For the first several months after Old Dutch introduced Salt Ďn Vinegar chips back in the mid -late 60s I think, the regenerative powers of the epithelial cells on inside of my cheeks were tested big time. I tried that brand recently, and letís just say something was lost with the passage of time. Miss Vickieís* or Kettle Foods, on the other hand do a pretty decent job with their hand-crafted batch production flavoured potato chips, both of which I am pleased to remind my wife are gluten free!
* their Sea Salt & Malt Vinegar, and Balsamic Vinegar & Sweet Onion flavours are among my favorite junk food snacks, of which Iíve tested rather more than I can remember.
