They’re Heeeerrreeee…

Luscious, lovely orbs of spicy, crunchy goodness, of course. Radishes, fresh from the garden.

Yesterday’s 1.6 inches of rain has really helped the the crimson globes round out. It’s just over four weeks since I put the seeds in the ground, and the plants are tall (for radishes, I mean), leafy and lush. No bugs. No […]

Best. Burritos. Ever…

This weekend the weather turned off cool and crisp. Not cold, I don’t think my veggie plants are in any danger, but cooler than I like this time of year. (Then again, I’m into shorts and bare feet by Texas Independence.) Cool weather is a good excuse to break out the slow cooker and make […]

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

A few days ago my wife and I enjoyed lunch together in a novel location: My Fit Foods, on I-35 just south of Parmer. We’d seen the store there, along a row of restaurants on the east side of the freeway, and we’d also noticed the kiosks […]

Best (and Worst) Foods for Digestion

An article by Health.com’s Amanda Gardner points out some of the reasons that those of us who are “approaching maturity” may have tummy troubles.

These Foods Have Bad Reputations; They Aren’t Really Bad for You…

Here’s a short picture-article online that lists nearly a dozen foods that have developed a bad reputation over the years, but are in fact quite healthy. How did they get the bad rap? I’ll go out on a limb here and say it’s usually bad science, or worse yet, fair science that gets mangled […]

Food for Fighting Pain: Frijoles Borracho and Pork Loin Roast

I was in a lot of pain yesterday with the rehabilitation exercises for my shoulder and all. Enough pain that I essentially had no appetite. Of course, the pain meds don’t help the ol’ appetite either. I knew it would be like that too; they warned me.

I want to keep my strength up, of […]

Chocolate’s Better’n Carrots, But Is Miracle Whip Really Good for Your Love Life?

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2011»

Now you may think it’s patently obvious that chocolate is better than carrots. After all, you can’t make carrots into nice bars, just for starters. And while carrots are so sweet they’ve been used in place of sugar, you can’t make a nice hot drink […]
