Kater, that is one of the nicest things about it here, we have the best Mexican food anywhere. Anything you want we got it, in any degree of heat that you can stand. When I met my husband, he was from New York at the time, and he did not know anythng about Mexican food. Now we eat about fifty-fifty, Mexican food and Italian. The Italian, was his food of choice, so I have spent thiry years learning to cook it, and he has spent thiry years getting use to my food. So far it works great, we both get what we love and have learned to love the others.

Over the past 15 years with my husband my heat tolorance has increased but not to my husbands level! One of the best finds we ever made was an Italian restaurant (which I love) with a Cambodian chef. The deal the chef made with the owner was that as long as he could have some Cambodian dishes on the menu he would cook there!! Was great for us when we couldn't come to a compromise!!

WOW, what a combination, that would be good for me too. My husband doesn't like oreintal food and I love it. I don't know anything about Cambodian food though, is it very diferent than Chinese or Japanese food?

Cambodian is very similar to Vietnamese, Chineese or Japanese food. It is oriental in the style of cooking and some of the ingredients but the spice is quite different. It is very good but the level of heat my husband enjoys is much higher then mine. We usually would get a mild to medium with extra hot sauce on the side. Luckily both my husband and I love oreintal food as well as Mexican it's just our level of heat that differs.

We both avoid any hot or overly spicy food, I have even toned down our Mexican favorites. The Italian is not hot so it is still the same, I think in my husbands next life he may come back as a new plant a giant garlic tomatoe. If any kind of food is covered in that he will find a way to eat it Well maybe not sweet potato's but everything else.

As for oriental food I have never tasted any of it that is hot or very spicy but the rest I love that I have eaten.

Im with you Ghyle, I am glad it is getting close to dinner time here, I am getting so hungry reading all of these.

All Mexican food doesn't have to be spicy. Quite a few of my family's meals are pretty mild. In fact, I don't like a lot of spiciness.

Of Oriental food, I've pretty much only had Chinese, and liked most of it. My favorite's sweet and sour shrimp, though I fell in love with the stuffed dumplings the first time I had them.

Tresa,
That is what I told my husband when I toned it down to suit his taste. To me Mexican food comes in almost every degree of mild to "HOT", he doesn't eat all the different kinds of Mexican dishes that I do but he does love what he eats. Wow, I can't imagine who wouldn't it is so popular.
I don't eat oriental anymore because of all the fat that is in it but I still think about it. I make my own version of it now and that is pretty good too, but not like the real thing. Oh well you do what you can or you do without!

I love making the student standby (spaghetti) but replacing the spaghetti with smaller pasta, and chucking in as many ingrediants that others may not normally use--zucchini, soy sauce, peppers, for instance; also favourites--mushrooms, olives, etc. into one big delicious mess. Then eating that fr several days stright.

Also mince, vegies and gravy with cheese lumps. Spiced up or otherwise, great on bread.

According to my nutrition guide, you can eat Oriental, just choose vegetable and rice dishes or stir fry. And an occasional treat of whatever you want won't hurt anything, so long as you don't overindulge. What I do is alternate, for example I can have 2 minisnickers on Saturday, and a pie on Monday if I want, but it's all healthy snackes Sunday to earn it.

Tresa,
The diet that we are on is realy strict, we have to watch fat, sugar, and salt. Hubby has a heart condition, and my med. crud. So I just make us what ever we want to eat and change the recipe to suit. I am kind of proud of how good a diet cook I have become(as long as I don't burn it)with all the things that we can't eat anymore. Even the kids would eat it, so it couldn't be that bad!! I make a thing called a "cinamon rasin roll, pancake"it is fat-free,and sugar free(except the rasins) and it is great!! I realy missed cinamon rolls and donuts, so I made this so we could feel like we had a treaty.
I have never been one of those people who could have just a little of something gooooood! I have to have a ton of it so it is beter if I stay away or make it so I don't have to worry about it.

If you get used to it, tofu is a very versatile food. I enjoy it quite readily, especially silky tofu.

It's great in casseroles, if you cube it finely, and let it marinade beforehand. I generally use a honey soy marinade for mine, but then I love honey soy. I prefer the red wine marinades for my meat.

Well - it was bland! Ok, not awful. I'd eat it again, but make sure I add something to it to give it some flavour

Healthy eating can be so much fun. Tomorrow it's Bramley Apple Sausages (that's all they're made of!)

I am trying to cut down on the ammount of meat I eat - so instead of eating meat every day (like I used to) I have cut it down to 3 times a week. The local supermarket has an "interesting" selection of vegitarian alternatives. The sausages are one... I'll let you know though!

Did you wrap them in foil (hopefully shiny side in)? That's how I do my fish (I hope to try that trick with haloumi cheese--the cheese normally doesn't melt).

I like them with lemon and lime juice and dill, or pineapple, rings top and bottom, the smaller, sweeter variety of pineapple.

If you try grilling them in foil, taking care not to overcook them, you shouldn't have a problem with losing juices at all. The flesh should remain tender, and not dry out.

I don't know about the smell, though. Never cooked herrings, and the smell could be a herring thing.

I wonder what trout stuffed with cherries would taste like? :

What is a Glamorgan, sausage? I have never heard of anything like that. So the apple sausages tasted good, what kind of flavor did they have, what spices were used?

Glamorgan sausages are a sort of poor man's sausage made of breadcrumbs and cheese. Why Glamorgan I'm not sure!

Thank you J, I love apples and I love sausages and things that you can do to them. If it has soy in them though I can't eat them, but other than that I am game. Maybe they have them at my local health food store?

Tonight is the homemade pizza breads, with the fresh made bread, cut in half, with tomato sauce and seasonings, turkey peperoni, turkey italian sausages, nonfat mozzarella cheese, sprinkled with fresh parmesan, then baked until gooey cheese and crispy bread served with a fresh salad. And then because it is a holiday(Martin Luther King's birthday) "Captain Papa"(as my Grand-daughter calls my husband) get his chocolate pie for desert.

"To the Horsehead Nebula and back we shall make beautiful music"..."Together!"

The stories of childhood leave an indelible impression,and their author always has a niche in the temple of memory from which the image is never cut out to be thrown on the rubbish heap of things that are outgrown and outlived........Howard Pyle

I am having pasta, mince and vegies tonight. No cheese, but then I've run out of all but block cheese.

Mind you, I have a hanlkering for toast, for some reason, which is really weird. I don't eat toast (too dry).

soak it in butter!

I nearly set the kitchen alight last night. I use a wok alot and it normally sits on the front hob, but I didn't last night, but I did boil veg on the back ring of the cooker. Being in a bit of a rush I turned the hob on without thinking, and thus turned on the front one where I'd left a wooden spoon. Luckily I caught it just in time!
