put a fork in it

it occurred to me as i unloaded the dishwasher today that chuck & i could just about throw away our forks. the silverware bin was filled to the max with nothing but spoons. our daily food intake consists mainly of sprout wraps (for me ONLY), cereal, coffee (yes, it's a food group), tacos, b-b-q's & pizza. oh, and ice cream. most of these culinary delights don't require spiky utensils, that is unless you enjoy a good challenge.

all chuck would have to do is figure out how to eat steak without a fork..

t-bone shake anyone?

fork off!
You should forge yourself a sterling silver spork. Just one. And then you can say that you really don't own any forks (don't we all wish we could say that?. One solid spork would probably be able to maintain its role in your household.

Re: fork off!
oh geez.
i just now remembered the sporks of my past..(you have a way of triggering the most obscure recesses of my mind, while at the same time reminding me just how old i really am. but, in a good way, at least i think.)

are they still packaging them this way? shrink wrapped alongside an equally dull knife, with napkin? anyway, what i remember most was unwrapping them as a little girl and checking the back of the spork for the number imprinted on the back. somehow, and i don't know who invented this game, the number indicated how old you were, and the larger the number you got, the better. i'm convinced i wanted to be older as a child only because i knew older people didn't have to go to prison..uh, i mean school.

I ♥ SPROUTS! :)
Alfalfa sprouts anyway...

The other day I went to a sandwich shop and asked for a tuna sandwich and told them to put a lot of sprouts on it. They looked at me weird.
I figured out why, the sprouts they had on their menu were actually bean sprouts... so it wasn't so great. :P

lettuce sucks, as do my skills at replying
sprouts on sandwiches are way better than lettuce. lettuce just falls off in one or two bites. however, I started avoiding sprouts (kind of) after I got worried about a salmonella outbreak. they turned into this forbidden, uh, sapling.

Salmonella in the sprouts? :(
Oh no!

Well luckily I haven't been eating them that much lately!?

i love sprouts so much that i bought my own sprout maker. yup. i've got a mini garden growing all year 'round on our kitchen counter. it's kinda like having a chia pet without the pet. store sprouts are so EXPENSIVE, plus it's hard to find them fresh enough. you might as well eat some store bought sprouts on the toilet, they're so slimy and teaming with who knows what..

but, i'm addicted. i order all kinds of starter seeds online..radish, lentils, radish, broccoli, alfalpha..and garbanzo beans are also really good sprouted (and packed with protein) yummers. i start most my mornings with a wrap full of them and one of those swiss wedge cheeses smeared on first. i'm already salivating!

So you use the Kitchen Crop SProuter?
I like that its only 20 bucks... that other one is 99 on the other site!

It doesn't look like it lets them breathe though, does it work well? The 20 dollar one?

I might just do this! Do they grow fast? I love sprouts, this would be awesome!

oh yeah, the $20 one works great..
depends on what you're sprouting. some of the smaller seeds take little longer, like 4-5 days. lentils are done in about 2 days. it's great! in fact, i've considered getting another one, cuz i go through a lotta sprouts. the only thing that might freak you out is when you're sprouting the smaller seeds, they grow this sorta fungusy looking hair in the middle of the process. it looks like mold, but it isn't. after about a day of this weird stuff growing on it it looks completely normal and is ready for gobbling. i highly recommend it, since it costs like up to $2-3 bucks for a SMALL container of store sprouts these days. what a JIP!

oh, and you have to remember to clean it and or rinse it often. don't want any nasty stuff growing along with the sprouts. i haven't had any 'episodes' yet, so i think it's the healthier option. lemme know if you get one!
