Nick, I take it you like pumpkin flavors (ice cream, pancake mix, etc.)! Do pumpkins grow in San Diego?

Carl, no lamb or kalimari, but I did do a Greek-style baked whitefish. Plus, I confess to substituting Havarti cheese for feta. It's close enough. Do you have any Greek restaurants nearby?

Randall, I also love Greek food.  What's on the menu this week?  Roast lamb and dolma?

It was one year ago now that I was in Greece (hiking the Greek islands and Athens). So I'm celebrating by eating my own Greek style food this week. It's been fun to prepare and eat something different. Luckily, I love Greek food.

Glad to have helped with your positive morning, Joan! (And I recall that you shared the pizza metaphor in another group earlier this year.)

Another bit about pizza that I can't help mentioning: nobody gives a guy flak for walking past a pizza shop without going in to have pizza. We accept that maybe he's not hungry, maybe he's in the mood for different food, maybe he's planning to have pizza later that night with someone special... It's part of the "man box" that a "real man" is expected to have lots of sex with women whenever possible, regardless of his actual appetite!

I am glad my grape story rang some bells for you. Thanks for the kind words, the funny cartoon "not under my roof" and the pizza story. What a nice way to start my day. 

Well, I'm off to the garden, see you later. alligator.

Joan, thank you for sharing that delicious part of your life (in your pictures too)! I wish I could drive for only a couple of hours to meet the amazing, caring, resilient, strong, imaginative woman behind all your stories and ideas and rants and thoughts.

Carl, thanks for the laugh... reminds me of sex educator Al Vernacchio's recommendation, which I've shared in other parts of A|N, to replace the baseball metaphor (first base, second base, scoring, etc.) with pizza. Among other things, nobody consigns you to hell for liking pineapple, spam, and M&Ms on your pizza!

Video of Mr. Vernacchio's TED talk: "Sex needs a new metaphor. Here's one..."

A good complementary article: "To Slide or to Slice? Finding a Positive Sexual Metaphor"

I made wine from wild grapes two years ago. Haven't seen any since then. :(    My white grape arbor didn't produce any fruits either this year. I waiting for my newly planted Concord to mature.

Joan, your kitchen seems to be about the same size as mine. Amazing what one can do with limited space, and unlimited imagination.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on September 28, 2014 at 12:08pm

What a wonderful resource, Joan.  I had homemade concord grape jelly earlier this month that my bother-in-law's mother made from picked grapes up in Minnesota.
