I've gone to my farm in Kentucky for the weekend. It's a great place to relax, do a little hard physical labor, and forget about the rest of the world.

If you don't have such a place, I highly suggest you get one.

In the meantime, here's a little something that I found for you to read that might just add some spice to your day.

See you on Monday.

Okay, I confess, I have had a little chianti. (NO, not the Napolean Brandy), so it took a few trys to find just where Emporia was.  Seems like Kansas... Now, as for salsa, yum.  I make mine fresh with whatever veggies want to give ME their all, plus a few herbs and spices to qualify.   One taste, of MY salsa, and YOU will dance the macarena...

The best thing about Salsa is, that it can be put on most everything, to enhance flavor and wake up the Tastebuds ...  Great on Eggs, fixed any ol' way ... Really good on a Leftover Meatloaf Sandwich ... Just for noshing, its good with some fried Tortilla triangles, and a little Crema Agria ... and some melty grated Acedero ... Lotsa Coldbeer too .......  Salsa becomes addictive, not only because it tastes so good, but the liquid fire from the Jalapenos (Capsicum) will kick the Endorfin Levels way up ....... Sure beats Jogging or Jazzercize ...

It is a small world - I spotted the vodka & beetroot salsa recipe in my Daily Mail yesterday & saved it to send to the village at an opportune moment. Mr Peterman has beaten me to it. Huh!!! Why not? With a bit of creativity you can make a salsa out of almost anything. The hot stuff tastes great, but my gut goes into insurgent terrorist mode, so I have to invent tasty dips that do the same job without the ciderfex. Cider vinegar is, it is claimed, a cure-all. Why is chili so-called when it burns your ass coming out the other end?

It suddenly occurred to me that while South East Asian Chinese cooking uses some tomatoes, its usually only as a garnish (like with steamed fish) or in a simple chinese vegetable soup (Chinese soups are always clear consomme style as milk and cream is shunned in our traditional culture). Certainly, the tomato has never being used as the base for a sauce even though "ketchup" was invented in China (in 1690, from pickled fish and spices)...


My suspicion that tomatoes were never big in my "motherland" (I am a fourth generation Overseas Chinese) proved right when I found this article that said, "The story of how China's tomato industry grew surely must rank as one of the weirdest of the country's economic boom. To begin with, the Chinese themselves shun tomatoes. In China, about the only way you can get a person to eat a tomato is by slicing it and liberally sprinkling sugar over each slice".


The tomato is called "Foreign Eggplant" in Mandarin or "white man's eggplant" in my dialect, Fukien (hokkien, similar to Mei Nang Hua, that which is spoken in Taiwan). Well, the Chinese are not doing anything by half measures and seems that is now inundating the world with cheap tomato paste and sauce, the kind that might get into your salsa, and is creating havoc for traditional tomato growers in other lands. Especially Italy. "The Silk Road over which Marco Polo brought home the pasta has turned into a pipeline of cheap tomato paste" http://www.slate.com/id/2177831/pagenum/all/#p2

p.s I forgot to mention I actually like tomatoes!...and chilli of course!

The great physicist Niels Bohr remarked "Opposites are not contradictory but complementary."
Sweet and hot are heavenly. Just the other night I savored a hot sauce of Mango and Habanero. The use of watermelon has expanded and its natural sweetness also makes for a tasty spiced chutney for grilled fish. As football season is upon us, cold beer and chips/salsa make life a real super hoot especially if one risks a little queso dip with chipotle peppers between cholesterol checks.

My son's mango, jicama salsa is delectable. He includes roma tomatos, cilantro, lime juice and several mystery ingredients he won't even share with Mama. ;) He made it when "auditioning" for the chef position he now fills and although he was only the second chef interviewed out of a large pool of candidates he had the job before he left. I've told him if he doesn't teach it to me, he has to supply me for life or he's out of the Will.

HAZEL:   Chile is the Spanish word for, PEPPER ... "Chili" is the most natural Texas morph of the word, and the Iron Pot dish that we love so is called, Chile Con Carne ... which translates to, Peppers With Meat ... Peppers, Onions, Garlic, maybe come chunked up Tomatoes and the right Spices, all stewed together for a long time over a low fire with hand cut bite-sized pieces of good meat, and NO DAMNED BEANS ... will produce some purdy tasty Chili like the Vaqueros used to make out in El Campo ... Most everyone has a "Secret Ingredient" to include in his own Recipe, but the basic formula is the same that the Aztecs who morphed into Meskins have been stirring up for over a thousand years ... and like Salsa, Chili can be put on or over almost anything ... But, it is that Capsicum Oil in the Pepper that causes the initially uncomfortable sensation of Heat/Burn when eating Chili ... and also later when, not eating Chili ... Especially if you get a lotta seeds from the Peppers in your Bowlful ... Jalapeno Peppers contain more Vitamin-C than an Orange, to go along with that fire, and the combination makes for a very effective Digestif ... which is a good thing ... It may have been that the Aztecs cooked the Peppers and Meat together in the first place, so that the magic of the Chile could tenderize tough cuts of meat, since I am sure that none of them had a very successful Dental Plan, so most of their Grillwork was confined to the Campfire ... A bowl of good Chili and some Hotwater Cornbread and a Beer or three, and a man can work a good long while, especially on a cold day ... We make a cauldron of Chili once a week around here in the Winter months, so's anyone who wants can go in and dip into it whenever he feels the need, can do so ... My Chili comes in three different Threat Levels, Spicefire, Belchfire, and C'mon Ice Cream ... The latest of those three is definitely NOT for novices, and you might be surprized how many people put Salsa on their well-buttered Cornbread to eat along with their Chili (We eat a lotta Tortillas here also, but this IS Texas, and Texas IS the South) ... Like any other dish ... the thing is not so much what goes into the pot as it is HOW it goes in , and in what order ... I prefer to do things that I like, Long and Slow ... and savor every moment, every taste, every sensation ... Just like Chili .......
 
SPRING:  You mention in your discussion of Dialectics above the word, "Hokkien" ... that sounds like it could be awful close to, Hoboken ... and believe me, Dialectics take awide Left Turn up there .......
 
BEBE:  Have you never tasted Tomato Preserves ???  If you can't find Home-Did somewhere, Smuckers makes the very best that is Commercially available ... You really ought to try a dab or two, on a Bisquit, Bagel, or even Biscotti before making up your mind ... Tomato Preserves are a delightful thing for a Country Boy, one of the few ... Its real good on plain ol' Toast too ...

Not just tomato with sugar. Get a pretty shallow dish & a heap of thin sliced ripe tomato and thin raw onion rings & a load of shredded basil. Layer the tomato, onion & basil, sprinkling each layer as you go with salt, pepper, SUGAR, teeny bit of olive oil & balsamic vinegar. Cover with clingfilm & leave to marinade in the 'fridge for at least a couple of hours. Last time I made this, I put in a layer of very thin sliced apple & that worked well. Any chunk of meat/fish on top of that with a side serving of baby potatos/rice/couscous & a token bit of green salad. Bon apetit.

My Oklahoman dad put sugar on tomatoes, and salt on watermelon.  As for ketchup, in went on everything and into most things except his Duck a l'Orange and he strong black coffee. He didn't shun anything edible, except the notion that a salad was "dinner."  That would get you an evil eye and a "where's the steak." Gotta love those southwestern men. Hello Eye.

JALOPKIN~ In my mind, chile is the little very hot red or green peppers, then there's capsicums which are the big pepper fruits, then there's pepper that's seeds you put in a grinder -- whichever, too much of it does not agree with me.

Park4- bebe- A man after my heart I also say. Stewed tomatoes with sugar are also a delight as well as turnips or cooked cabbage sweetened up. And watermelon with salt served crispy cold after stored in ice water in the wash tub which also was my outdoor baby swimming pool. And ketchup even on my eggs along with some of the aforementioned salsa or chow chow. I love the blue cheese on a lettuce wedge but also we would make our own thousand island dressing using a mix of ketchup/mayo/ and homemade sweet pickles. You have struck an old familiar and treasured chord.

Tommy: Niels Bohr was truly a great man. When he made the comment you noted, I think he was talking about "opposing" theories of light (waves vs. photons), two notions that really are quite complimentary to each other. His basic, simple model of the atom seems to have moved chemistry and physics a decade ahead at one fell swoop.

Haze:

In the rural southeast, a lot of people believe that drinking a large quantity of apple cider followed by lying in the fetal position on one's left side will cause gallstones to pass. I know of at least one patient in whom it actually worked, though I certainly hadn't suggested it. She was having biliary colic pain symptoms, and had small stones by ultrasound. The stones and symptoms went away, however, after said consumption.

KSS~ I was curled up in the fetal position,  but lying on my front when a doctor was called because I was in discomfort with gallstones. He said Haze, Mecca is that way ..... & for once in my life I had to beg somebody NOT to make me laugh. I hadn't been feeling good for a while & had turned an interesting shade of yellow. Hospital .... next thing I knew I'd got a drip-stand & a drain bag to take for a walk if I wanted to get out of bed. The ward I was on was so understaffed that I'd be up in the night with my pets in tow, holding puke-bowls & wiping hands & faces with cool damp cloths for fellow patients.

I AM PULLING FOR "MAD MEN" AND FOR "BREAKING BAD" AND THEIR CASTS. IMHO, THOSE ARE THE TWO BEST SHOWS ON TV.

AMC's new show "Rubicon," only a few episodes old is proving itself to be just as good as its sibs MM and BB. Rubicon is about a government spy agency deeply placed within the Washington system that analyzes information and plans black ops. It's got a very shrewd and refreshingly cerebral storyline.

Haze: You're exactly right about perturbed ratio of chiefs to indians in US healthcare. It's probably slightly less bad here, but many nurses now take patient families aside and tell them that it would be good if a family member could remain behind in the room overnight to help with small things as they come along. The nurses will just flat out tell you, we are grossly understaffed. The nurses work their fingers to the bone, and these days in the US the average lifetime years an RN graduate spends working as a nurse is only 5!! They hate their jobs, and watching how they are made to work, I can see why. Drug abuse by nurses, in the form of swiping some of what was in a Demerol syringe, and subverting it for self use, is extremely common. Not because they are bad people but because of the profound job stress they experience.

KSS, seems the term "ketchup" made its way to the states of Malaysia by the early 1700s. Am sure it was the movement of many Chinese to Malaysia and Singapore (which then was part of Malaysia) that was responsible for this. Most of these never planned to settle permanently, migrating only to seek work; permanent settlement came much later. A yummy local asian ketchup is Ketchup Manis, the best being from Indonesia. Its a thick sweet black sauce; I might use it for marinade or as a dip...goes well with some breakfast items and some dim sims. BTW KSS....loved your gut talk yesterday.


Cane toads frog legs with salsa....oh KSS!...I'm swooning already....hang on....or am I hallucinating??


Bebe: I can't bear the thought of sugar on tomatoes either....urghhh...! I esp love the little cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes, pop it in your mouth and feel it go pop :)


Jalopkin...Hoboken? Did a quick search on it...haha! Well, at least i will be able to understand the language there..must read more on my "sister city" in the office...


BTW, I understand there is a difference between Ketchup and tomato sauce, at least here in Australia. The latter is non spicy and may be vinegar free

Park: totally blissfully resonant agreement. People who haven't seen "Mad Men," or "Rubicon" (also the dark comedy "Breaking Bad").....you just have no idea what you are missing. In my view these are the finest pieces of art the TV genre has ever produced.

It's all of every Sunday night on AMC, which also runs encores late Sunday night and periodically through the week.

Discs of the prior seasons can all be had at Netflix. Most cable providers willl show recenter episodes on demand for free. The first five minutes of any of these three put the hook irremediably into you.

SPRING:  The difference is Sugar ... There are 250mg of Sugar in every Tablespoon of Ketchup or Catsup ... depending on which side of the Mason/Dixon Line one might be ... Tomato puree,sauce has a little bit of sugar, but mostly salt ...
 
BEBE:  Send me the Recipe for the Baked Brie, if you will please ... I am intrigued by the sound of your friend's compote ... I'm guessing you're talking about Matzoh Brie, and not the Cheese called Brie ....... Altho' Baking a decent two year old Brie, with a caramelized compote atop it, would sorta be like horizontal Raclette, No?  Could give a whole new meanng to, Coupelles Therapy ....... (couldn't resist)

TT, My mom made chow chow and piccalilli (green tomato relish) every summer with the tomatoes and bell peppers we grew in the back yard.
 
Jax, I love jicama and any kind of salsa made with it. It's also delicious diced or sliced and tossed with just some cilantro and lime or lemon juice.
 
Salt was always an option for watermelon. Watermelon makes for a tasty salsa ingredient too.
 
Park4, I recently read about a man who was having trouble breathing and after getting an xray was found to have a bean sprout growing in his lung.
 
Hi Bebe, I like the sound of garlic and caramelized onion anything.
 
Hazel, how's your back?

JAX..........that sounds absolutely delicious...........hello......
 
JANE............I made a burger last night for my lunch today & I could not resist caramelizing some onions & then making a cream gravy w/ them. Some of the kids will be, "Ooh gross, what is that smell?" Many of them are not used to actual non packaged food & they get gagged out by onions. Their loss, my delicious gain..............
 
IVAN............ no, it's the cheese, but a matzoh bake w/ a tomato & onion jam w/ some brie could be really delicious............
 
PARK............your great, great, great, great Uncle Prescott was correct..............I have a secret tomato baby here at the house. His name is Edgar & he is of the roma variety. He is really shy about going outside, but  I hope to encourage him as he is very cute...............very smart,your great, great, great, great uncle was..........

Bebe:  he was my great great great great uncle from Prescott.   Arizona.   Where I was born.  Except that was in Phoenix, not Prescott.  And my great great great uncle was named Levi, not Prescott -- and "if I told a bigger tale I'd have to tell a lie." ;)
