    Is an onion considered a root vegetable?

    I've always thought of them as root veggies. The bulb grows in the ground just like potatoes or beets.

    Gut, Ive grilled tomatoes before on a charcoal grill. Cut them into large pieces and only turn them once. They will cook quickly and handle as little as possible.
    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

    I grill tomatoes all the time. I cut them in half and scoop out the seeds and watery part( that going to get lost on the grill anyway.) I use some olive oil and pepper, grill cut side down., I BBQ a lot of them along with peppers. Yummy!

    That sounds awesome!!! Thanks! The only grilled tomatoes I remember from my childhood are cherry tomatoes as part of a shish kabob.
    Count your blessings!

    I hate it when a recipe turns out to be a total flop! I did this one yesterday: A Year of Slow Cooking: Slow Cooker Coconut Red Beans and Rice Recipe
    The result was a pile of mush that smelled good, but tasted like nothing I used Jasmine rice too, so it was an expensive mistake.

    I just read the recipe and it actually sounds like it wouldn't taste like anything. Two cloves of garlic? One tsp red pepper flakes, which don't taste like anything anyway? Half a tsp of salt? Bland. If I was making something similar from my own imagination I would use a whole head of garlic, two chopped jalapenos, and probably a bit more salt. And I wouldn't cook it as long - I'm the person who complained in the crockpot thread about how overcooked everything appeared to me.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    One should always use more garlic. Our Baba told me that.

    Re: General Food Talk

    Years ago when my daddy was living he had blackberry vines and when he couldn't keep them up any longer he cut them down and threw them in my pasture. Now I have 3 different blackberry patches and this year and I have blackberries running out the wahzoo. I have been making jelly and putting them in the freezer. they are so good and they remind me so much of my dad. Blackberries are so expensive in the store and at the farmers market and I feel so blessed to have all I want free. I am trying to get people to come and pick some of them.

    Wish I lived closer, Nennie. I'd be running over to get some blackberries!

    I made this recipe last night: Spiced Pork Tenderloin with Maple-Chipotle Sauce Recipe | MyRecipes.com

    It's one of my favorites (thanks to Mariner!) and it always turns out perfectly! So nice to have something come out right, especially after the coconut beans & rice debacle.

    I wished you lived closer too. I am going to have a lot go to waste because I can't get them all picked.
