    This is about the China Garden restaurant. My husband and I have bought food from there for take out several times. It is kept clean and very nice. The last order we bought for take out was for beef fried rice. Often we get beef fried rice from different Chinese restaurants and it is usually comparable. This was totally unusual.It had strips of beef not just on top but all through the rice. Generally I have fried rice for breakfast during the week. With some medical problems including allergies and having to force protein, this is recommended by my dietician. I will keep frequenting this restaurant.

    Dish of fried tomatoes like absolutely everything. Residents usually ask recipe are surprised mastery chef. Even guys with pleasure eat fried tomato in breadcrumbs. Tomatoes very good combined are combined with many products. Garlic adds sharpness. Cheese gives red crust. Italian herbs turn roasted tomatoes into a dish from a restaurant. Omelette with tomatoes - elementary and nutritious dish for breakfast. Make even sandwiches with fried tomatoes.
    Cooking tomatoes simply. For cooking use butter. In olive oil - fewer calories. It is also combined mixed with fried cubes tomato.

    I had to smile, when I scrolled down to the daily quote of the day about "The best things in life are cheese". I had just finished compiling some information, nutrition facts and Ayurvedic principles about this nutritious and delicious food that I have on the menu for the next cooking class on Thursday. If interested read more here . Cooking class information is at

    Thanks for the information about the song "Reason to Believe". It is very timely to current politics where supporters remain steadfast in their support for a certain political figure, even though he is blatantly lying to their face.

    Just read the comment about Chipotle. I used to LOVE the place. But the last 2 times I've been there I have been disappointed by the chips and quac. Now I really like their quac. In fact I make my own at home like theirs. But last time I had it, it tasted like the quacamole you can buy already made from the grocery store. And the chips have been so stale they are almost chewy.

    I got hungry reading The Designer Greens lunch details. I printed out the Herb and Spice Guides story, and I forwarded the Crossfit Training article to my son who has a gym in SoHo, NYC.
    THANKS GLOB Master!

    Thank you Globbers for keeping food real and local. Come out to Deep Spring Farm in Alachua and pick organic blueberries for the month of June and into July. We love to grow for foodies!

    Hi Mike, great issue today, just wanted to add a 6. to your list of information about gluten. I think that some of the digestive issues people have with it, can also be attributed to the glyphosate in roundup, the pesticides, GMO and processing. For some it is also the condition of poor digestive capacity that can be strengthened through appropriate diet and lifestyle for their specific constitution and condition. FYI: I was at the No Nukes concert that you mentioned, in 1982. Thanks for the memory!!
