I'm eating on my second large pot of bean or split pea, pork, & poke bone soup.  

I cooked the pork & bones in the pressure cooker at 160 degrees for an hour.  Long enough to soften the bones, then put the beans in & cooked them.  

The bones are soft enough to eat, and I do.

I read where bone broth is super good for ones health, so I made up a batch. With the added garlic and onions and spices, it wasn't half bad. I'm all for good health.

Target turned tail & left Canada this month. We were supposed to get one here, but was so glad when they didn't as Walmart has  destroyed a lot of this town's businesses as it is. I will not shop there, for food or anything else. Cheap prices, yes, crappy merchandise, yes. No thank you. By everything I've heard, I don't like their policies either.

Another reason I don't go to Tar-zhay is that I don't speak Armenian, and most of their current employees don't speak English.  At least not well enough to be understood.  (There are lines waiting for the store to open EVERY day, not just "Black Friday."  At least there were when I used to drive by there....I'm SO glad I stopped driving!

I don't shop at Target either.  I've only been getting recall notices for a week now, and most of them, like this one, I don't have to worry about.  I posted this one because I thought it might affect some people.

I've stopped buying things at Walfart almost completely, but they do carry the two brands of laundry detergent that Consumer Reports have rated the top of their list, and I can find them no were else in town.

Well, that's another product I don't have to worry about....there IS a Target store near here, but it's as sleazy as Walphart.  Wouldn't be caught dead in there.  (NO Walphart in Burbank; the City Council won't let them build or lease here.)

Why Can't Humans Eat Grass?

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 20, 2015 at 3:52pm

I wonder? I'm on the hunt:

"In principle, people can eat grass; it is non-toxic and edible. As a practical food source, however, your lawn leaves a lot to be desired.

"There are two main problems with a grass diet. The first is that human stomachs have difficulty digesting raw leaves and grasses. Animals such as cows, on the other hand, have a specialized stomach with four chambers to aid in the digestion of grass (a process called rumination).

Aside from the digestion issues, a second problem with grass as a food source is the mastication. Your dentist would not be pleased; grass contains a lot of silica, an abrasive which quickly wears down teeth. Grazing animals have teeth that are adapted to continually grow, replacing the worn tooth surfaces quickly."
