Oh Saria. We are not all food-ologists like you

Most of the time I have no idea what you are talking about lol. Im aware there are most likely loads of different salads out there filled with ingredients I have never heard of and would more than likely enjoy. But...seriously. The effort to try and research it all, and find the foods and the cost of buying it all just to try out a salad....its like major effort and inconvenience. If you were my friend or neighbour I could just try it all out and would maybe find something I like, but until that day.....

The only salads I have had were like lettuce leaves (yuck), tomatoes (major gag), cucumbers (yuck), pepper (freaks me out to eat them raw) and some horrible vinegar sprinkled over it. Some of them have had weird white cheese which I also didn't like.

What can I say - the thought of anything to healthy makes me shudder I don't understand how they possibly fill you up. I usually have garlic bread

Ok I have just thought I like my mums potato salad - which is potato, mayonnaise and chives. Is that a salad?

See, you don't dislike salads. Nobody likes food that exists solely to be healthy.
I used to make a salad of grapefruit, avocado, and chorizo oil. That and sea salt is all it was. And it needed lots of chorizo oil to be just right. It was freaking delicious. So was the oven-dried marinated eggplant salad with ricotta salata. And the charred spicy beet one.
So is tabbouli, which happens to be healthy.


I know it's not of the same importance to everyone, but I have to make the effort to expand on the ideas that some people have about food. Food is a cultural gateway, among other things, and I think it can only help to get a glimpse into other cultures.
Plus for me, working in this industry, it's kind of important to make the distinction about what it is exactly people don't like. I would not want to have salads on a menu and have them completely ignored because people were under the impression that all salads are vile (not referring to you specifically, just an example).

Saria, I just have to say that one of the great things about you, one small part of your awesomeness, is your desire to help people understand, know, and expand their thoughts on food.

I often don't know what you are talking of (you've mentioned gado-gado, several times recently - what is it??)

So in sum - I <3 Saria!


P.S. - I'm not a huge raw tomato fan either (and I've eaten them out of my g-pa's garden)

I don't know what Saria's talking about most of the time either. But then I look it up and it always ends up being something that looks so good and makes me so hungry and I know I'll never have it and then I get sad.

I love cook and I love to eat but some things aren't worth the effort of finding ingredients and learning to make it. I want those Jamaican hand pie things made for me and brought to my house! : )

Please please please stop talking about food!!!! hahaha

Oh no! What is wrong with our dog?

We've got:

The skin issue I can't seem to get cleared up.

The pain he was having in his hind end (that is a little better).

And just a bit ago he threw up twice when I took him out to potty and I could tell he wasn't feeling well. He's on antibiotics for his skin, but he's been taking them for almost 2 weeks with no side effects. I'm keeping an eye on him and if he's not feeling better by this afternoon I'll call the vet.

I just don't know what to think, it's like he's falling apart. We've got this move coming up and I'm terrified he's going to be sick while we're in transition with no vet. I just want my boy to be ok.

On a happier note, I'd love to have some of those Jamaican hand pies too.

Aww, thanks.

TRBL, I have gado-gado on the brain because of the recent Indonesian food bazaar:
Gado-gado: Facts, Discussion Forum, and Encyclopedia Article

The stand where they had it at the bazaar had the lady grinding the peanuts into sauce to order on what looked like a flat mortar and pestle. The vegetables were very well-coated.

I think I'm actually going to enjoy this job...and at the very least, it's going to be way better than retail.

Do you have to be perfect and right all of the time? It's really annoying.

LOL, I'm like you except I like some salads w/out leaves, but very rarely, it's a special mood/craving that only comes when I'm dieting and it happens a few times a year at most. A common one for me growing up is cucumber, tomatoes, green chili pepper, salt and lemon or vinegar. Or caprese salad (no leaves and cheese yumm). I dont like raw veggies or fruits in general but I make myself eat them for health reasons. And if it's served to me, I'll eat it, especially if I'm hungry. But I seriously don't understand people who are not dieting that actually look forward to salad as a MEAL. I don't care if there's steak in it, just don't get it!

My DH wouldn't dare touch a salad for the first 30 years of his life, but he'll eat one now and prefers it sans dressing. Lord forbid parmesan or feta enter the picture...hysterics ensue!

You have me totally wanting to go back to SE Asia. The gado-gado, nasi goreng, sate, nasi campur from Indonesia ... yum! Thai green papaya salad is soooo fantastic, I would get them made-to-order in Bangkok, the lady would grind the ingredients in a tall, narrow mortar and pestle. YUM.

I used to think I hated salad too...until I moved out of my parent's house and did my own shopping and realized that there is more than just iceburg lettuce out there.

I started liking vegetables too...once I realized they didn't have to be mushy and overcooked.

This lead actor in "Mao's Last Dancer" is all kinds of sexy. Have mercy, I need to go to bed.

Pureza = purity. Baņos de pureza is an expression. See sanctimonious sangria for similar terms.
