here - you can eat to help the environment, focusing in invasive species!  Wild boar, and Asian carp come to mind.  I've read that you can eat Kudzu too.

Randal, glad to hear you've got your appetite back. I used up all my leftover turkey from Thanksgiving making Tinga de Pavo (a variation of a Mexican chicken dish called Tinga de Pollo). I got the recipe off of various YouTube videos. You can get the videos here. My favorite one is here, but I only use about 1/2 the chipoltle chiles. Those things are some powerful ju-ju..

Pat, I have the frozen sweet corn for your soup recipe, but no chicken or turkey. I do like corn chowder with potatoes. Did up a stir fry last night with a bunch of veggies. My appetite is back.

I LOVE the aroma of freshly sliced or grated ginger!  Makes the kitchen smell lovely no matter what you're cooking (or who f*rted).  It also tones down garlic in dishes that call for it.

Randall - I love fresh ginger and put it in everything from chicken noodle soup to martinis.

As long as I have herbs & spices, I'll make soup out of almost anything, & a tin of tomato paste makes a good start too.

Snow outside can make for a mellow time in the kitchen.
I've never heard of that soup! I hope you enjoy it!

Love lentil soup. All this talk of soup has given me an idea of making one I tried a long time ago. It's a chicken and corn soup. Got the recipe from a Chinese/American cookbook (recipes are the ones you find on a menu in the Chinese restaurant in a midwestern town). Use cooked chicken, creamed corn, chicken stock, and white pepper, among other things. Had it once, and it was pretty good. Getting a light snow right now, and the more I think of it, the more appetizing it sounds.

I always hated gingersnaps. Funny--although I don't particularly like anything "gingery", I take a ginger pill once a day (after breakfast). I know it's suppose to be good for the digestive system. A lot of good it did me the past few days!

One of my soups was lentil, by the way.

Patricia, I agree with you about soups.  Last weekend I made a barley soup I like a lot.   In think lentil soup will be next.

Randy I hope you feel better soon, if not already!

I posed about solstice on the general forum.  Coming up soon.  I don't know if there is a particular food tradition that I can adapt to my modern life.   Maybe, for some reason, gingerbread.  I don't  know....
