Marie tried her hand at making chili on Super Bowl Sunday... it was fantastic... even better on top of the two turkey hotdogs I slapped it on last night.

There is something very amazing to me about the combined flavors of a good chili, a good hotdog, gads of onions, shredded cheese... and ESPECIALLY - the mustard. I love the mustard-chili combined taste.

Tuna melt sandwiches and soup.

The tuna was Janice's excellent recipe of tuna, red and yellow peppers, chives and celery.

Lets see....We were sitting on a patio right on the ocean..watching the sun set...we had fresh baked tortilla chips and fresh salsa that had no "sauce" in it. It was fresh chopped tomatoes, onions, corn and I dont know what was so hot its a wonder it didn't set the table cloth on fire.

The main dish was a huge piece of grilled mahi mahi...fresh green salad with a wonderful home made cucumber dressing....
steamed fresh veggies...the carrots were small pieces and were very tasty...not strongly seasoned....and garlic bread. I had bottled water to drink.

Chili...Chili...hrmm..I don't remember seeing a Reed chili....


Someone turned me onto chili and rice a few years ago. He said his mother used it when they were cash poor and he just loved it..I tried it and found it was really quite tasty!

As I was making it, a friend of my daughter's was over here watching me. Her parents are divorced and she lives with her father and when he cooks, it is "guy" stuff like steak and hamburgers..so they eat out a lot. So, I invited her to stay and have some..she said she couldn't.

Well, a little later on, when the girls were out and about, I got a call saying that she could make it and really really wanted to try my soup.

She found it amazing. I'm gonna have to start a cooking class for these young people..they don't know anything but how to set the microwave!

That's nothing special? Geez..to me, a salad IS special...it's one of the things that I don't make much at home because of all the ingredients involved.

When I was in the radio biz, we often would take clients to lunch on the company's nickle. At first, I thought it was great..bring on the lobster and steak! But that doesn't last long. I found that I was much happier getting the salad and soup! Go figure!

I'm a salad junkie! I can't let a day go by without having one... I don't always mix and make my own, though. The pre-packaged ones are actually pretty good, though you have to look at those expiration dates.

I always add to them, though... Break up some of that "Just Chicken" from Trader Joe's. Crumble some of those dehydrated peas I've mentioned before. Some mushrooms. A good helping of grated cheese. And, of course, the lite parmesan ranch dressing (also from TJ's -- and they keep running out, so I hope I'm not making it even harder for me to get by mentioning it here!). Mmmmm... Good stuff!

NOT! Our pattern is to have a good sized lunch out somewhere and for dinner we have sandwichs in our condo. First day is a grocery shopping day... We pick up cheese, tomatoes, a big red onion and fresh baked rolls. (get them when they first dump them in the bin before the cockroaches get them) LOL We also buy a cheap sharp knife since they might frown on that in my luggage. We buy screw topped containers of veggies and fruit..
and always scope out where we can find distilled water.

I pack a hot pot which comes in very handy.

That is a challenge...Mr Bs breathing machine wont run without it.

They have some places around here..supermarkets..that have a salad bar and they charge by weight. Not a bad deal really..if you like salad and not all the "heavy" meats and extra dressing.

Are they still putting stuff on lettice at salad bars so they don't wilt? That was a big thing a few years ago.

Oh for crying out loud! You've got to be kidding? I never knew that. What kind of stuff...Like some sort of Viagra to keep it up?

BTW we were trying to find red ripe tomatoes here without luck before we realized...At home they are shot with something to make them that way.

I've seen those, but haven't tried any. Well, I did try the one at work once, but it was way too expensive. I guess I tend to like piling on the heavy ingredients...

If memory serves me..it was "fulsodimades" or something like that..some sulfer based product that, in some people, would make their noses clog up..but I am not sure if it was ever banned or not.

Depends. A LOT of our fruit comes from areas that can grow them in the off-season (like Austrailia), others come from greenhouses and yes, some are dyed.

That's why we buy our groceries from Ralphs..but our friuts and veggies from Whole Foods. (You outta see what they do to oranges!)

What do they do to oranges? They are so ugly here we haven't bought any but maybe we're use to the "fixed" kind.

Ah...the Porter Ranch Ralphs Marketplace. I took Marie there two weekends ago, just so she could check it out. We ended up shopping there for about 45 minutes...

Subway Sandwiches combined with the Atkins diet for me lately! I know! Your not supposed to have bread with the Atkins diet, but I'm not following the Atkins diet to the max. I get one footlong from Subway per day except for one day a week (wheat bread, no mayo). The rest of the time I'm eating salads, meats(grilled), fruit. I've lost 12 pounds doing this since January 1st with moderate exercise, but only 3 or 4 days a week on average.

We're on the same track. I've decided to simply cut calories since January 10th. My major consumption stoppage is soda. I haven't had a coke in about three and a half weeks.

Since January 10th, I have lost nearly 14 pounds... I'm feeling really good. I'm appreciating food a lot better... I hope that I can make it a life change.

Rather than go on some crash diet, I still eat the regular things I like... I just watch how much, and estimate my calorie intake. I'm trying to limit myself to around 1500 calories a day.

So far, so good. Good luck with your weight loss, as well.

My problem is that I get excited at an obvious change, and then I go off the wagon.

A couple years ago I lost almost 70 pounds in about three or four months. I changed my diet a little, buying "lite" or "fat free" foods, but I never cut out carbs. In fact, I frequently eat energy bars and gels, and those things are loaded with carbs. What really took the weight off was exercise. I started hiking a minimum of three miles a day, and climbing at least one mountain a week.

I couldn't do that. I have one or two a day. I did switch to diet Coke a couple years ago, though. I figure, it doesn't count since it has zero calories, right?

Try this little test. Buy some oranges at Ralphs, and then buy some at Whole Foods. You can do your own little taste test..and you will never buy another orange from Ralphs again!

Yea nice store if you can get in! That parking lot seems to get more full by the day..and did you see the construction on the south-east corner? It's going to be an Islands restaurant.

And of course, there is the In-N-Out. (Double-double, animal sytle, extra toasty bun, please.)

And speaking of burgers, I took my son to a burger lunch the other day..at the Munch Box! We both came to the conclusion that both In-N-Out and the Munch Box make good burgers but that each burger is a spearate catagory. Neither one tastes like the other, yet both are wonderful!

Personally, I don't belive in the Atkins diet, nor any "diet" for that matter. If you want to loose weight and keep it off, you need to change your lifestyle on a perm basis. The word "diet" tends to imply a temporary change as in, "I'll go on a diet for a few months, then go back to my pigish habits after I have lost the weight."

For me, I have found that doing the exercise and dropping things like french fries have a wonderful effect on me...and, I don't miss the fries at ALL!

Counting the calories, is, IMHO, the best way to go! And, it forces you to eat healthy because you find you can only eat ONE cookie, but you can have 3 oranges!

And stay away from those Danny rolls!

I agree with you. I'm hoping this so called diet or eating pattern I'm on will lead to a lifestyle change in my eating habits. That is my intention. Plenty of exercise & just watching what I eat for life is really the way to go!

Good for you Rob! Sounds like a plan that is in full execution. I think you just have to find what works best for you & your metabolism & pretty much stick with that. Looks like you have it mapped out! Everyone's body, metabolism, & lifestyle is somewhat different. Keep up the good work!

Yup! They don't give anything away over there! If you limit yourself to the fruits and veggies you can get away without a second loan on your house. The foods are GREAT there..and they have a wonderful meat and fish section..but yea, the prices are steep for those things.

It has gotten easier the longer I have stayed away... I still get coke urges, but they are now few and far between.

I get caffeine in the form of Coffee only, now... which -- so far -- has been working.

I just KNOW that I can't kick the bad stuff completely... I'm going to try the "moderation" concept.

I am fortunate because I LOVE sushi... Marie and I have been eating a lot of it lately... it is certainly better on my body then some of my other favorites (Big Macs, Pizza, and other assorted fatty monstrosities).

I practically grew up on Pepsi. We always had a bunch of the stuff around when I was a kid. Then, I kinda stopped drinking sodas for the most part until just a year or two ago, when I let myself get hooked on Diet Coke for some reason I no longer remember.

>I get caffeine in the form of Coffee only, now...

I get my coffee fix every day too. I take to work a big cup of coffee and a 16oz bottle of Diet Coke every night.

One of my favorites is a Tommy's double cheeseburger with everything and chili fries with cheese. I still have to indulge myself with that every once in a while. That's pretty much the only red meat I even eat any more, and it's a rare treat now.

Fortunately, I have already eaten for the evening... or I just might have gone off the wagon and headed over to Tommy's after this post.

That's sorta funny. When my wife was carrying our children, both times she had this huge turn-off to sushi..and I thought, "How forturnate" because we saved a ton in cash!!


Now all we have to do is get you to make your own rolls at home...

Its a wicked drug. Use to drink tons of iced tea a day. After all its calorie free but the jitters were terrible. Couldn't sleep and my stomach was upset so......I ate.

Mine is FRESCA. Calorie and caffeine free its great. Use to be hard to find but now they even sell it in PV in liter bottles.
One of the problems with any kind of soda is the carbonated part washes the calcium out of your system so good idea to take a supplement if you drink a ton or eat milk products.

Good point.

We have tried it a couple of times... but we would "make as we went along." The bad part -- for me -- was the stickiness of the rice all over my fingers, while trying to enjoy eating.

To me, there is a drastic difference in the sushi when it sits for even a few minutes after preparation. Might be psychological... but there is a major difference for me between eating at a table vs. eating at the sushi bar.

I'd never heard that. I hate milk, so I don't even go near the stuff. I do take a multivitamin every day, though. I just checked and it does contain calcium, so hopefully I'm ok with that.

I work with a group of Armenians and today at lunch someone brought in a quart of milk. They filled coffee cups and heated it in the microwave and then steeped their tea bags in it. Never saw that before. They said they do that with their young kids to get them to drink more milk as well.

I never could drink iced tea..a couple of sips and my stomach gets tight and knots up.

I can have up to 3 cups of coffee a day, but NO iced tea for my tum-tum.

If it's calorie and caffeine free..what's it made of?

My drink of choice is also calorie and caffeine free....

I have a filter in my house and I drink at least a gallon a day of ice water.

On Devonshire, west of DeSoto, just west of the train tracks. Yellow building..can't miss it.

For some reason, there are some really great restaurants right around there too. Los Toros, Les Sisters, an expensive but really good sushi bar...and of course, an IHOP.

Sounds like that would make for some pretty thick tea.

I love iced tea, but I don't have it all that often. That's usually my drink of choice when I'm eating out at a restaurant.

I have some Diet A&W Root Beer in my fridge which is also calorie and caffeine free. According to the list, it's made of: Carbonated Water, Caramel Color, Sodium Benzoate (Preservative), Aspartame, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Acesulfame Potassium and Malic Acid.

Sounds yummy, doesn't it?

I've driven through there. I guess I just never paid attention to the restaurants in the area. I do remember the IHOP, though. I'll look for this one next time.

Carbonated water. It's the carbonation I guess that sets up a reaction.

Okay that's bad for you also IF you then drink something hot. LOL! Its like taking something from the freezer and putting it in hot water....and it slows down your digestion...from what Ive read. Dont want to set myself up as an expert...I just read lots of medical stuff.

I drink decaf tea...Make a 3 quart pot of it and make sure its gone by the end of the day.

Ah...then there's that nasty stuff..Aspartame which causes seizures in kids and adults that drink a ton of diet stuff and are prone to such things.

I read an article about a year ago that talked about the best pizza and the best burgers in L.A. Munch Box was listed as the top hamburger in L.A.

I have tried to go there, unsuccessfully, twice (it was closed both times).

It is a small "hut," just west of DeSoto. You might miss it if you sneeze.

Good thing I don't drink this stuff very much, huh? Actually, I usually keep a six-pack of the more expensive "natural" root beer in my fridge (uses honey as a sweetener instead of some chemical), but last time I did my shopping they were out, so I picked up the first diet, caffeine-free root beer I saw, and this was it. I can taste the aspartame, and it ain't a good taste. I probably won't be getting this stuff again.

Are ANY of those an actual food item? It sounds like a chemistry experiment on crack! And isn't some of that stuff also listed on my paint cans in the garage?

Speaking of IHOP, they have reported a large increase in sales since they have been doing these "specialty" things like stuffed french toast and such.

But, I have to admit, I am a fan of pigs in a blanket (with a side of hash browns). I probably have it once or twice a year, but I DO like that stuff!

Probably. I usaually have my "hot" liquid..coffee..early in the morning (like now). Once that is done, then I usually won't go back to hot drinks all day. My "change-over" from coffee to cold drinks comes at around 6:30am when I have a HUGE glass of non-fat milk and my daily vitimans.

No..the milkman is often LESS expensive!!! I don't know how they do it, but it is..AND, the milk I get is REALLY fresh..none of these dates on the carton that expire tomorrow!

I don't know about the service where you live, but it is certainly offered over here. Call Alta Dena..I bet they have a rep/driver in your area.

BTW, the wife found out yesterday that the old Vons at Reseda and Devenshire is going to be a HUGE Korean market. I will have to check that place out!

My son and I have done the burger taste test, and I would say it is debatable on if the Munch Box is the "best" or not. Like I said, the burgers there are different than In-N-Out, but both are tasty...they are like totally different animals!

You could compare Munch Box to Tommy's and I have to admit I like the Munch Box a tad better than Tommy's...but Tommy's ain't bad, that's for sure!


If you go to the Munch Box, I suggest the double hickory burger.

I think the key is moderation. You can actually overdose on water. In small amounts most foods are okay.

I did a search for a doc once on licorice of all things. It causes liver damage if you eat 4 tons of the stuff.

Excuse me! Your "fan" and mine certainly do differ. LOL! Once or twice a year does not a fan make IMHO.

I really need to drink more milk. Good idea to have it with your vitamins in the am. I have two 16oz cups of leaded tea in the morning and then drink my room temp decaf the rest of the day.

If I went any more than that, I would have to add 50 miles a week to my bike ride! Just because I love em, doesn't mean that I have to love em THAT much!

I love chocolate cake too...and I have a great recipe...that I hardly ever make for the same reason! (Maybe I will make one for the Reed's..that'll screw up their "diets"!!)

That's true. I enjoy a really good piece of chocolate but rarely have that. Hope the Reeds enjoy your cake.

I don't know... Marie and I are doing really well. As I've told ya, I've cut out one of my loves... coke. AND, there are three (at least) ice-cold cans sitting in my fridge right now (for the last month).

...

...

Be right back. I have to run to the fridge.
