Sector 7 - to save looking pulses up :

and Avocado's ARE sentient. They are, however, evil. So it's O.K. to eat them...
Eh, hem. You should have checked that link first, my friend. It takes you to a Wiki page that says no such article exists, etc. Don't you just love Wiki sometimes?
Don't know how that happened - I looked the page up !

Take 2...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulse_(legume)

Nope, that doesn't work either - strange as I'm actually on the page I want and it's fine.

Just wiki 'pulse legume'. You get a rather dull article starting :

'A pulse (Latin "puls",[1] from Ancient Greek πόλτος poltos "porridge")[2], sometimes called a "grain legume",[3] is an annual leguminous crop yielding from one to twelve seeds of variable size, shape, and color within a pod. Pulses are used for food for humans and other animals. Included in the pulses are: dry beans like pinto beans, kidney beans and navy beans; dry peas; lentils; and others.'

It goes on, and on...
Ain't technology wonderful?

Re: Going Veggie

Look I've got yellow watermelon!!

They had white ones too but I didn't buy one.. the yellow watermelon is much sweeter than the red ones.

Re: Going Veggie

I've never had a yellow one before! I wonder if I'd like it. I've never been fond of watermelon. It's too...watery.

Re: Going Veggie

This is denser slightly and has an almost honey taste. More flavour all round.

Re: Going Veggie

Ooh! Sounds delicious! I love watermelon. I've never tried yellow, but it looks like it's rather good. I might have to look around and forage for one at my local grocery store.

Re: Going Veggie

I've had purple bell pepper but never yellow watermelon.

Found a nice recipe for spring veggie and matzo ball soup in the local rag here in town. My father was Jewish and my mom tried to accommodate during ethnic holidays.

If it's any good, I'll post it after I make it. Assuming I can find matzo in this backwater town.

I like honeydew melons. They have that nice firm flesh that's less watery than watermelons. Eating some now for breakfast...

Hondeydew is the best in my book too.

Made not exactly ice cream, but more like a frozen green slushie out of it.

I might like it. The thing I dislike so much about watermelon is the texture. It's always really bothered me, while I'm fond of other melons. It's boring, but cantaloupe is probably my favorite. Take a half, fill the pit with plain yogurt, and top with blueberries and it's pretty much a perfect lunch.

Re: Going Veggie

^Texture is the main reason why I have a bit of a hard time with melons. For me to eat watermelon it's gotta be firm. if its sorta...grainy, I won't it. I just can't stand it.

Really gotta get back to this thread and more vegetarian food. Mostly because I really really need to because of my health. But also...doesn't seem like girls like overweight guys

Re: Going Veggie

I've gone "meatless" before and I go real heavy on the cruciferous vegetables and beans. However, I tend to alternate between that and a regular diet. Especially, because Baseball season is coming up and a bag of peanuts just doesn't cut it. Turner Field does offer a "Veggie" dog but it's nothing like an actual hot dog.

It's difficult to find a good tasting meat substitute when you want something familiar. I love Boca burgers (their classic American burger is delicious!). On the hot dog front, I've yet to find a good alternative.

Other than being a bit denser (and this is over analysis) it's the same texture. Watermelon bores me and I rarely eat it, but I can't go past a fruit I've never had before. Next time I'm buying the white one.

I'm not much of a melon fan but I eat about 5 papayas a week (which are not melons, lol).
