    I'm glad you are enjoying Hot Buttered Toast Month as much as I am.

Very surprised - my son tried sprouting a blood orange seed - the single seed found in the ones I purchased. This has been well over a month ago. Today, found it sprouted!

    I recently read somewhere (might have been over the rainbow...) that soaking older seeds in a solution of water and potassium nitrate (aka: saltpeter) will help them sprout. Haven't tried it yet, but your mention of seeds never sprouting reminded me of it. Thinking I'll do a side-by-side soon.

    I am growing a blood orange tree. Takes forever to fruit. So far 4 years from seed. No fruits

You will never be disappointed if you have no expectations. On the other hand, you will also be boring.

    I expect to learn how to triple jump by July 7. Ok, or maybe by August 19. Definitely by August 19!

    With the crazy surrounding me, I kind of hope for some boring now and then. Never get it, but always hoping.

Got a jar of horseradish mustard. My son scooped a spoonful and popped it in his mouth. The stuff is mostly horseradish. Need I say more?

    Unexpectedly getting that much horseradish in the mouth can cause immediate redness in the face and a look like one just put a superhot into the mouth. Plus a look of utter shock. Frankly, I'm kind of surprised he didn't spit any out.

Got my CCN order yesterday. Today I remembered what drama queens Tsakoniki eggplant plants can be. They will be fine, but geesh! So glad the chile plants aren't like that!

Pineapple cores - excellent flavor addition to what's in the slow cooker.

    Rawk I used the whole pineapple, core and all, on a poached salmon last night. It was outstanding!

    Eating the core isn't bad. It can be tough and fibrous, so most peeps don't eat uncooked core. And since not eaten raw, it's not familiar cooked, either.

    Me? I only rarely eat pineapple because it is too acidic - more than a few small pieces literally results in mild acid burn in my mouth - totally unpleasant.

    Thanks, Ann. Things are progressing well - most of the large-area pain is gone now, though certain areas persist. I am hopeful that a week from now this will just be a memory. Onward and upward! ;)

Blue corn masa and enough red chile powder do, in fact, make a nice shade of violet. Just be careful about whom you invite to dinner. Ha!

If money was no object and you had one tequila to drink before you died, what would it be?

    I'm kidding geeme. I love tequila. I never spend any money on it but my hipanic buddy is REALLY into tequila and spends crazy money on bottles. I've had some pretty good stuff.

Been ambivalent about using turmeric, but had a :shrug: moment and added it to something a short while ago. Now it's rockin' hard when I cook. Good stuff once you figure it out!

    ... and go. Next week they'll say it causes cancer - whatever! But I'd hardly say it has no flavor - au contraire!

    I started running and taking a turmeric/curcumin extract w/ piperine (black pepper) since it's supposed to help with inflammation... not sure it makes a huge difference but I ran a 10k this weekend (6.2 miles) and I'm feeling pretty good about it!

Have broken my months-long hiatus from the culinary arts for tonight. The one burning question all must ask: Is it THE TB worthy? As Texans say, we're fixin' to find out!

    As you should. I don't flirt with dudes. A woman will make you a sandwich while telling you she's leaving you. A dude never does that! Making the sandwich...I mean.

AKR to CLE - Bomba Tacos & Rum is opening a 3rd location this spring, in Beachwood. Can't wait! Swenson's is opening a location not too far from that, in So Euclid. Coolio on the Foodio.

I've not been cooking in a long while, but have been noodling an idea for about a week now and had to get into the kitchen tonight. Mad scientist on the loose again!
