    Hep - that's about the age I starting cooking too. I think my first meal was some very mid-Western concoction involving cream of mushroom soup and potato chips!

    I just made THE BEST meal. I've been craving Joe's Special for days but a) I didn't have the ingredients to make it and b) didn't want to spend the money to get it at Boudin's. So, I came up with my own sort of French version. I chopped up some onion and fresh Sage and sauteed them in butter, Then I added some ground turkey and browned it all up. Then I added the eggs and, right before they were done, I topped it all off with some truffle oil. OMG, it was SO good! I didn't have any mushrooms, but I'm going to use them the next time I make this.

    I'll be so sad when winter comes and I have to actually BUY fresh herbs instead of just walking out and cutting them from the garden.

    I'm interested as well, but haven't yet found a bottle in which I can take 60 ounces of liquid to work every day. That's nearly two quarts, right?

    Tonight I made polenta fries, using a Martha Stewart recipe. They came out pretty oily and a bit burnt, but I LOVE well-done polenta fries in a restaurant so I'm going to keep trying. I baked them in the oven.

    Yes, I make two quarts when I make it. You could possibly make it in a big pitcher and then pour it into a water bottle or canteen to take to work and have leftovers for when you came home.

    It has a really mild flavor so I drink it with my meals and everything. I like it cold, so it works good having it in a pitcher and just being able to pour myself a nice cold glass of it.

    That might be something I like. What brand are they?

    The bag says "Herr's" and then in big letters "Kansas City" and then "Prime Steak Flavor". I'm not familiar with it, but you never know what you'll find at the odd lots store.

    Thanks. That's a brand that I've never come across though.

    We have Herrs here and I've seen them in other states. Their website doesn't show them but on a google search they show up on some kosher food sites as being kosher. Maybe you are in a test market.

    The odd lots store often gets stuff that has been discontinued, so maybe that's the case here. I'm not supposed to eat a lot of salt, so I only have 2 or 3 at a time, but each time it manages to surprise me that they actually taste like steak!
