    The "Red Kidney Bean Poisoning" sounds exactly like every case of food poisoning I've ever had....and I've had 2, too many. It's one of those things you just don't forget.

    Gosh, after reading the post on bean poisoning, I'm glad I was taught to always boil, soak and rinse dried beans.
    It is easier for me to cook dried beans in a crock pot.
    I like to add rinsed cooked Pinto beans to Green beans. I also like to add cooked and rinsed Dark Red Kidney beans to a garden salad.
    This summer I've been preparing a corn salad with black beans and tomatoes. It has a dressing made with red wine vinegar and spices. It is good as a side dish, added to a garden salad or as a dip.

    I love fennel! (Also called anise). I usually saute it with onions, but she cut it into small slices and cooked it slowly over a medium heat and a lid. They turned out soft and golden instead of greenish white and crunchy like mine. She used the feathery stems and leaves to make a bed to roast the chicken breasts on.

    I don't think I've ever had fennel. Also never tried rutabagas, turnips, parsnips, durian, or dragonfruit. There's probably plenty more but that's off the top of my head.

    A friend just gave me a big bag of little heirloom tomatoes. I ate a bunch with some fresh basil and mozzarella and a splash of balsamic. YUM! I could eat that every day, although I probably shouldn't eat cheese every day. Today, at least, it was totally worth the calories!

    I'm back with another dumb question(s) of the day. Is all edamame sold frozen, and what does one do with it? How do I handle it?

    No such thing as a dumb question. Edamme is just a fancy name for soybeans. You can get them fresh in the shell, but I like to get them shelled and frozen. I put some of them into a container in the fridge and put them on salads, but you can use them in stir fries, etc.

    Have I seen people eating them like popcorn? I'm really curious!

    Re: General Food Talk

    Okay, I just had to share this with you guys. I'm helping a friend out with a project. A volunteer organization she's involved with is putting together a cookbook and I'm typing all the recipes into Word (they're all either handwritten or typed...on a typewriter. Holy cow). The membership is largely elderly women. I just came across a recipe for Orange Cake that is the usual cake recipe...until you get to the final line, which reads "May be doused with booze."
