I had bowknots and sauce earlier and just finished a fudgcicle. They aren't as good as they used to be but will do in a pinch - when you need something cold and chocolatey

Lisa, hope you manage to recover from my herbal cruelty. Maybe when you do you can answer my question - are you growing any other herbs?

I did not try the panko yet. My oven is still broken and now they say it can't be fixed afterall. Stinkers. Don't even get me started. Anyway, I guess I need to find a pan fried recipe for panko something (not fish).

Off to watch The Soup...

Borrowing spouse's computer tonight, as the daughter (a/k/a the Tech Goddess) has absconded with my laptop to clean it of what she calls "bloatware," install new spybot-catchers and order more something-or-other that I think involves memory. Wish to h*** she could add to my memory while she's at it....

Supper tonight was a pair of gorgeous ahi tuna steaks on the grill, brushed with just a bit of olive oil and topped with home-made pesto (and Lisa, a mortar and pestle does work just fine, at least for small quantities of it), with steamed sugar-snap peas for a side. No starch tonight, but we really didn't need one. It was wonderful.

Best wishes to all for a SAFE and happy Fourth of July!

Toosie- Basil is really the only one this year. I am concentrating on the veggies first and herbs next year. I would also like to grow sprouts.

MBW- Your dinner sounds delicious. Looks like I will have to look for a mortar and pestle. The things I have to modify to live off grid, lol.

That does sound good BookWorm - but I'd still need starch!

Lisa, sounds like you're off to a fantastic start with your gardening - maybe you can start canning stuff too and send me samples

Lisa, sprouts are easy, and you don't have to wait until next year to try them; my mom used to grow alfalfa sprouts in a little dish on her kitchen sink year-round. She'd use 'em in salads and on sandwiches instead of lettuce.

It's been a long time - Mom died in '97 - but I remember that she'd use a margarine tub with a big hole cut in the lid, so that all that was really left was a rim to snap over the container. She'd put alfalfa seeds in the tub with a little water, spread some flexible mesh over the top and snap that cut-out rim on to keep the mesh on. I believe she'd drain it and add fresh water each day, and within a few days, she'd have a tub-full of fresh home-grown sprouts to add to her salads. She'd mix in radish seeds sometimes for a spicier crunch, but mostly it was just the alfalfa.

And way, way back in the day, when I worked at the Chinese restaurant during college, they'd grow their own bean sprouts in much the same way, but in much larger quantities. They had bought new plastic garbage cans that they punched holes in, and they'd grow beansprouts in them in the back room. It's been too many decades now to remember the details, but I know the Kowloon Palace in Kalamazoo never, ever bought a beansprout as long as they were in business.

LISA -I think you are doing wonderfully, BUT, if Toosie wants to give you some "footnotes on herbology, well ..who am I to stand in her way? I wouldn't want to be a heel or anything!
