Yardley Bar Soap

Nopalitos and Tostadas

  An efriend in another (East Coast) state uses nopalitos interestingly, thus I was spurred to give them a try.  I’ve seen them on the grocery store shelves here in the desert for many years, and, indeed, a huge cactus … Continue reading

My Version of a Veggie Burger

I’ve tried the burgers made from grains and beans; I’ve even made my own. If I am going to eat a veggie burger, it will look like this – a “burger” made from veggies. Actually, this must be a “Cheeseveggieburger”, … Continue reading

Stir Fry Soup

Hot Roast Beef Sandwich – sort of Canadian Style

Looks good, eh? We’d been hearing about Poutine. If I have it right, that is French fries with a cheese sauce and gravy. Sounds a bit weird, but Canadians seem to think it is really spiffy, so maybe we should … Continue reading
