What Mgmt said.  

It's relaxing and fun.  It can also be challenging and interesting and yummy.  But mostly, it's just plain relaxing to get into the rhythm of it.

I think it is satisfying for some folks.  For me, nothing but pain (but hey, I still like to read about it as a lurker).  Food prep when done well is a creative art. It is like getting that circuit that you made yourself bread-boarded and running :-)

That makes sense. It's kind of like laundry. Zen. Quiet, one step after another, useful, no end to the work.

I like cooking but I can't stand anyone in the kitchen with me or someone asking me what I am making. It is zen
and I want quiet.

BTW did Ignat ever make his slow cooker pulled pork?

Well, heck, if that's all it takes, we need to start rejecting fast food around here.

I like growing food. That's got to count for something. Sometimes I look at the little garden I have fenced off in my back yard and think how cool it might be if I turned my entire back yard into a garden to grow food that I could then eat.

It's only a cool thought until I rememer that I'd have to find some way to keep the deer and other animals and all the bugs from eating my food. I'd have to put up tons of fencing, and the tiem it would take to care for the garden would be instead of going to work, so although it might be mroe fun, it wouldn't exactly be quite as lucrative. But at least I wouldn't starve!

Until the food I can grow in a back yard runs out.

When you live in a condominium, your ability to grow a garden sorta changes.

I wonder if there's a business opportunity to make gardens available to people who live in condominiums. As in, the condominium dweller handles all the issues related to farming the land, you just provide the plot.

Naw, I doubt that would work.

oh, ubran gardening isn't that hard.

and you don't need as much space either.

have a look at this potato stack garden:

if you combine the right sorts of plants, the bugs stay out also.

Hmm.

I'd have to come up with a variation that allows me to do this kind of garden on my patio, since I cannot legally use the common area (which would be where I'd find dirt).

We had some enterprising condominium homeowners who set up a garden on the common property. Unfortunately, the association had no choice but to remove the garden, as it wasn't common property for all the homeowners. Sucks, but that's one of the problems of living in a condominium.

I heard that potatoes can do that, but I haven't tried it yet. Maybe next summer.
Fleeb, some things grow well in pots, but some just don't. I have seen tomatoes and cucmber plants do well in pots on patios. And Thyme and mint plants as well.

I lived in an apartment complex on the bottom floor. My upstairs neighbor planted some tomatoes in front of my
patio one year, and they turned out great. People didn't take them even though the guy didn't care if they did.
He also grew some herbs on his porch, until I said to him that they were getting so tall I could see them from
the ground. He got rid of them or trimed them back after that.

Yeah, I'm obsessed with coconut liquid lately. Almost milk, but without the dairy-ness.

Almond milk is pretty damn good, I get the vanilla flavor without the sugar.


So.... has Ignat tried his slow cooker pulled pork? Better than NY pizza if it is South Carolina style.

I'm just not into dairy products that aren't actully made out of milk. I never got into the almond drink either, but I like the rice drink. I like it lot less at $4.50 for a box of it, but that was one of my favorites. I'm not following it anyway, what is the latest on diary? It is good for you? It's bad for you? It's good for you but causes cancer?
