|Yes, Neal I do love sprouts, particularly broccoli. But I have been away from them for a while as the ones in the markets are often pushing past their prime. My niece and friends were on this raw food kick for a few years and were always sprouting lots of things. They were however always warning me of the risks of over mature sprouts. One day i was in the Giant and the store manager saw me take some sprouts off of the shelf and came over and took them from me. he said he wasn't comfortable with selling them and trashed the whole lot.
Please forgive my caps. This computer doesn't cap when I ask it to and caplocks at will. Neal that is wonderful that you are salvaging that food. It seems that when the nouvelle cuisine era came around chefs started to lose their economic caution to the expense of exotic concoctions. When it got really out of hand and the restaurant failure rate became so exhorbitant, the industry answer to it seemed to be nothing but portion controlled and previously prepared items. I'm always around a lot of culinary Institute and johnson & wales grads and often cook with them. No way do they economize food the way that the old guard did.
I wish I had access to that leftover wine. What a great idea. LOL I have to hide open wine from my DSO so that I'll have some to cook with. Neal ham hocks are so hard to find here in the Northeast. You really have to go into the city's poor neighborhoods to find them. What great soup makers they are!
it's good to be back. I have not one cookbook and came over here looking for something to cook last night. Yesterday i got up all prepared to make a quiche and then after 2 cups of Java realized that i no longer own one quiche or pie plate.
Carol, I know that you are an excellent recycler. This younger generation astounds me with their expiration date mentality. I accept all expired food glADLY. My nieces shudder when I cut the mold off of cheese or bread and use the rest. I am conscious of the bispanol-A problem, but come on, what will they ever do if we have some large disaster like katrina or japan? And why don't they compost it rather than throw it is the trash?
