    Dave,
    I'm sure that I would like the chicken liver pate. There is nothing in that recipe that I haven't already eaten. It looks and sounds like a gormet potted meat!

    Russell,
    I would definately try that. I don't know anything about sea weed. I can only guess that it is like cooked greens. Is it similar? I even love "origional" spam right out of the can. I haven't fried, grilled, smoked, or bbq'd spam in a while. It is about time I did .

        Yeah, it goes back to WWII when SPAM was part of K rations I suspect the Phillipines were a similar reason

        Here's a little historical fact:

        Hawaii consumes more Spam than any state in our union -- in total, 7 million cans a year. According to the SPAM website, the island's love affair with Spam began in World War II, when GIs were served the salty luncheon meat because it didn't require refrigeration and had a long shelf life.

          Jam (apricot, strawberry, plum) and Cream is the traditional filling for scones here in Oz at morning smoko.

          I moved into town (currently 17,000 people) in 1980, mostly to eliminate the 40 mile commute.
          35 years later I'm still here and I still feel like an outsider.
          We get a lot of university grads from the eastern states and they often have values that make me feel like a throwback.
          For example, they mostly think it savagery to kill your own food.
          I usually have to suggest to them that unless they are vegetarian, my preparedness to slaughter and butcher a sheep, or hunt and eat wild game just means I'm prepared to do my own dirty work.
          A saving grace these days is my boss, who looks like a professional metallurgist, walks the talk, etc, but goes bush once a year to hunt and fish and sleep on the ground. He gets it,. and this makes life easier.

          Anyway, back to the tomaties.

          Planted 4 advanced Roma seedlings late September. Got 'em up and running, went off to New Zealand on my first ever overseas holiday, leaving my 16 year-old with dire threats of death and mutilation if he forgot to water them and let them die.
          Came back to flourishing tomatoes, weeds, and basil, rest of garden looking suspiciously dry. At least the boy can prioritise.

          Now picking at least a pound of fruit a day that I reckon I can legitimately claim are organically grown - no fertiliser, no pesticides, etc.
          They look like it, not uniformly shaped like store bought, plenty of blemishes on the skin, etc, but dang they taste good.
          Can't believe how many fruit we are getting from 4 plants.

            There is no comparison of a vine ripen home grown tomato vs a store bought one, even the vine cluster tomatoes in the store that are the rage now.

              I think that goes for anything homegrown and ripened. But as tomatoes are my favourite food I would agree whole heartedly. Nothing beats fresh tomatoes lightly salted straight off the vine. unfortunately we can't grow tomatoes now (our summer) we can only grow them in the winter (tropics)

                  No, it's just that we live in the north of this big continent. Those who live in the south would be harvesting their vegetables now.

                    Ok, I get it. Ya'll have many more latitudes than the US . Come to think of it, we share a continent with two other countries .
