EGG

If you work on a bicycle (cop, messenger, etc), how do you bring your lunch to work?  It isn’t as though bike messengers ride around on trikes with baskets on the back.  Are they, by nature of their transportation, doomed to eat out for lunch everyday.  I’m going to assume they make a special lunch bag just for cyclists.  This next Call is all about the bicycle as well.  Take a look…

The hot-fresh-now doughnut purveyor is very popular during tourist season in the Smokies.  Summertime often means a car line for the drive thru stretches for a 1/4 mile down the Parkway.  I don’t understand.  I’ll stand in line, or sit in line, for a lot of foods, but why doughnuts?  Donuts with a K are everywhere aren’t they?  What makes them so special while you’re on vacation?  It baffles me.  This next Call does NOT baffle me, and the name is all about the lines.  Check out the gallery and/or online show choice.  Interesting option…

What’s your favorite edible flower?  Most of us have had a lilac or rose petal infused whipped cream.  But I want to encourage you to try a little Calendula in place of saffron or peppery Nasturtium salad.  Just remember that blooms used in cooking must be orgainic–no exceptions.  Also, be sure to wash them well to remove all traces of fertilizers like manure.  This next Call is all about blooms, edible or not.  Take a look…

with salt

I am addicted to salty crunch–but not in the way you would think.  It isn’t potato chips, although I do love them dearly.  No, I am newly addicted to bananas with peanut butter and chunky sea salt.  Odd, I know.  It was a happy accident, really.  We buy unsalted natural peanut butter and salt it ourselves.  And, when my salt grinder started acting up, I ended up with HUGE salt boulders on my bananas with peanut butter.  Now, they HAVE to be boulders.  This next Call might just appreciate my happy accident.  Check it out…

I usually like to get food as close to the source or source process as possible.  But, I cannot bring myself to love Mexican chocolate.  Most of the world uses a conche for varying lengths of time to incorporate cocoa butter within chocolate.  The longer the processing, the smoother the chocolate.  But Mexican chocolate is still often stone-ground which produces a gritty texture.  I am addicted to dark chocolate, but I want it smoooooth.  This next Call offers the opportunity for you to be dark and either smooth or gritty.  To each their own…
