    message.  I had some unexpected travel, etc.  Sorry to step on your new gig, but I am sure everyone will be happy to know you are BACK, BABY!

    I learned a lot doing this diary, and that is always a good thing.  I had no idea I cooked with so much garlic though.  Mosquitos still love me, so it must be an urban legend that eating a lot of garlic dissuades them.  No vampires yet!

      ... everything I cook, along with a little sea salt, ginger, black pepper, and turmeric.  I think that combination is contributing to my good health.

        ginger, pepper and tumeric are believed to have important health benefits.  I take a tumeric supplement for its anti-inflammatory properties.  I tried drinking it in water; while it wasn't horrible, it wasn't nice either.  Maybe I should try sprinkling it on whatever I am having for breakfast...

        I am a recovering salt addict, so I try not to cook with it, just add it if necessary.  Fresh ground black sea salt?  Swoon!

          ... turmeric for its anti-inflammatory properties, that black pepper should be added as well, as the pepper helps release the anti-inflammatory properties of the turmeric.  Some turmeric supplements include black pepper for that purpose, but some don't.

          I was never a salt addict; just the opposite, I never added salt.  Nowadays, I realize that a little salt is good for me; and since I never eat the high salt stuff you find in some grocery stores, restaurants, and fast food joints, I figure I should add a little when cooking.

            even a bit of processed foods, you probably get plenty.

            I did not know that about black pepper; I eat it in most things (except cereal, at least so far [grin])
