1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    mustard greens
    tatsoi
    red leaf lettuce
    green leaf lettuce
    romaine
    red sorrel
    green sorrel
    green basil
    purple basil
    marjorm
    savory

    Might be missing a few things. I have also been made aware the berries above are in fact black raspberries.

    One can never grow too much Basil one year I had 14 varieties growing it has a culturally rich history and from my understanding it was one of the plants that Marco Polo took back to Italy acquired from his travels. During the British Raj a Hindu could take the oath in court on a sprig of basil. Has to be my favourite herb, old wives tale is that its a herb of fertility.

    By the way what did you dress the salad with?

    Last night truffled free range omelets with goat and chedda cheese and a bitter green salad. With a rich almond torte and whipped cream.

    Tonight Mushroom and Truffle risotto with green salad and a Adelaide Hills 2010 Nebbiol Barbera.

    Classic vinaigrette. Dijon, red wine vinegar, sherry vinegar, olive oil. The herbs provide enough sweetness, so I opted against balsamic.

    I went to Gordon Ramsay in London with my wife. His TV persona is offensive, etc, etc, but this was one of the best meals I have had. The entire experience was close to perfect and I really enjoyed it. I took a bunch of pics and stuff, which I never do. I'll post them later when I'm not almost comatose.

    Somehow this eggplant dish makes me yearn for some ravioli.

    Nothing fancy but plenty healthy. Hickory and mesquite wood to grill and going to pair with a Sauv. Blanc...not sure what one yet though.

    Late to the party, but just got to this episode and loved it. OTOH, couldn't finish the n/naka episode--it was too stomach-churning a reminder for me of how shitty it is to be Asian.
