    Sleepingrock, those look good! I am way impressed by folks who make their own bread and grow their own food.

    Sleepingrock you should meet my father. He bakes his own bread (even made his own yeast!)
    and they're very delicious
    i would love to try some of yours

    how far along are your pineapples?

    I have one that's three years old that i made from taking the top of pineapple i had eaten, letting it sit and sprout, then potting it. Still hasnt produced fruit but its a pretty large plant. Im thinking it'll spit something out soon, but idk.

    Wow, I'd love to make my own yeast, I shall try that one day!! And bring your dad to Coach! We can all eat bread and stuffs!

    I did the exact same thing as you, sprouting the top and I planted it a week or 2 ago, so it is quite far off from fruiting >.<
    I'd love to have homegrown pineapples

    making your own yeast isn't hard. He even made it from a plum we grew ourselves. You just need to really pay attention to the yeast and treat it as your child. I'll trade you some of our bread and a plum for some of your bread and a pineapple

    my grandma used to make a variation of that salad using raisins instead of blueberries and, true to southern roots, mayo as the dressing. and no sunflower seeds. it was the greatest thing on the planet, if unsophisticated. i can only imagine that this version is as fabulous.

    It is true; they are untoasted. I'm not sure Mark Bittman would approve.

    I have had that salad -- I think of it as a traditional southern thing, often accompanying coleslaw and fried chicken on picnics and such. I'm not sure if that's even remotely accurate. But yes, it's a delicious excuse to basically have carrot cake in salad form.

    I prefer carrots with pineapple, mint, a tiny bit of yogurt, and dash of honey or sugar if the yogurt isn't sweetened.

    but yeah, i've had the carrot salad your grandma used to make often in my southern-infused life.

    my grandma moved here from kansas around 1920 or so ... she was a big bread baker .... she brought here starter (read fresh yeast) from kansas when she came here .... twice in 80 years i think i was told, something came up (like ww11) that she could not bake bread and the starter went bad ... so off to kansas for some new starter ... not too bad, two goofs in 80 years .... cr****

    That sounds good. Pineapple and mint is such a winning combination.

    It makes me want to try a Moroccan-style version with grated carrot, chopped fig or date, mint, yogurt, cumin and cinnamon. Would that be too weird? I might try it.

    Some of those salad combinations I would never think of, but they look scrumptious.




    BTW, I still hate cilantro.

    What a great article. I'll have to try some of those, too. I've been making the same salad (with a few variations) of spinach/baby greens, tomato, cucumber, red onion, feta, walnuts/almonds nearly every day for the past two months. It's getting old.

    Great pics, by the way. Are they from one of his books? Or do you really own all that cute dinnerware?

    That's why I am doing this -- I was stagnating in my salad habits too. There is really only so much red leaf lettuce + tomato + feta + pine nuts + balsamic that one can take.

    The photos are my own, so thank you!
