    But theirs ...

    I am hoping they never try anything with cilantro.

    (Fortunately I think the odds are very good!)

      To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. Roger Ebert

    •  I love blue cheeses (5+ / 0-)

      Once you get passed the whole "mold" thing and really get into tasting the different kinds it's amazing. Most people don't realize the roles that mold and bacteria play in most cheeses.

      BTW, one of the best pairings ever is Roquefort and ripe pears. Very good.

      •  You might really enjoy those cheeses. (4+ / 0-)

        I have no connection to that creamery, other than being an occasional customer. But they have some amazing cheeses, and not just blues!

          artisanal cheeses. America is waking up to the potential and also figuring out that cheese doesn't have to be bright orange and wrapped in plastic.

            (fasting glucose: 312) say the only cheese I should be eating is cheddar.

            It's a new thing, called the whole foods diet. Avoid carbohydrates, particularly processed carbs. The one fruit you can't have to your little heart's content is bananas, but who in their right mind would want more than one a day?

            Kinda like Atkins plus raw fruit and non-starch veggies, though beans are as strictly limited as grains -- which corn is, so that's right out.

            Jeans are looser already. This was day 10 ...
