    My wife, sister-in-law and mother-in-law took my wife's aunt to see the sights and sounds of San Francisco yesterday, as she lives in Vietnam and had never been to the US.

    Her aunt viewed a lot of things from the car, or would only spend 5-10 minutes outside at each stop due to not being used to the cold.

    Those are awesome pictures, Flux. :D

    Well, my vegetarianism is in full swing, and this is what I had for dinner:

    It may not look like much, but it was delicious. Tomatoes sauteed in extra virgin olive oil, sprinkled with fresh parmesan cheese, celery salt, oregano, and a dash of pepper, sitting on a bed of green lettuce drizzled in olive oil and sprinkled with parmesan cheese. :D

    The tomatoes were good, though they got softer than I wanted. Next time I'll just have to cut them a might bit thicker.

    ^I'll probably have salad for dinner. But I wouldn't mind some smoked bison!

    Those Tony Little bison burger promotions on home shopping channels almost always make my stomach growl. Bison is so good.

    ^I've only had bison burger at powwows, so it's been years -- since I was a kid. I had some good jerky awhile back, though.

    What is it about bison that makes the taste unique? Versus, say, a hamburger?

    ^Bison tastes very much like beef -- they are, after all, basically the same animal. It is leaner, however, but not chewy or gamey.

    Wow, J. as a veggie-man. Who knew?! :techman:

    If you need some recipe ideas--either raw or cooked--lemme know.

    If you like to talk to tomatoes
    If a squash can make you smile
    If you like to waltz with potatoes
    Up and down the produce aisle...


    Yep, that's J, all right. :D

    Bad vegetarian. Bad! I was vegetarian for awhile, but it was hard with my diabetes, and I was more idealistic then. I still support and understand the lifestyle though, and both my sisters and both nephews are vegan.

    Aside from the cheese, that sounds like the worst meal ever. :lol:

    I'll take all the help I can get! :D

    :lol:

    I had tried once before, some years ago, and managed for a year. This time it's much more important to me. My blood glucose was in the upper 240s four days in a row, and coupled with my blood pressure being high, and the likelihood that I have high cholesterol (can't afford the blood test to know for sure), and I said "that's it, I've had enough."

    I know that as a vegetarian, I can at least bring my blood sugar and blood pressure under better control.


    "Hey guys, can we get some b to go on this lt?" :D

    Not even kidding. I don't eat lettuce or tomatoes. I think salads are one of the most disgusting things ever.
