Whole Organic Milk finally has its day.

Fresh Research Finds Organic Milk Packs In Omega-3s

The research is catching up. When animals behave as they are supposed to, in this case, cows eating grass as they walk around, is better for all of us, and tastes better too.

The perfect meal

gringomalesSometimes a meal comes together just right. Sarah and I have talked about food a lot more than we have shared it over the last year, so last night was a nice get together. I brought my homemade Viozinho, the first wine I’ve made, plus a Riesling I brought back from Germany, and Sarah made her version of my wife’s family tamale recipe. To that she added a fresh kale salad and artisan cheese. It was all absolutely amazing. We drank a lot, and ate too much. I am sure we will talk more about the details, but there is nothing better than good food and drink with good company.

A vegetation mother’s day

If you’ve been listening or have read my blog, you’ll know that I’m a vegetarian. What you might guess but not know is that my wife “doesn’t eat meat”, either. So when we BBQ for mother’s day our grill fills up with a nonstandard fare. This Sunday it was nopales, artichokes, asparagus an mushroom skewers, chayote, corn, and steamed veggies in the foil. On the side we have homemade, from the tree guacamole, and to drink, homemade beer, and fresh brewed jamaica. Time to eat. Happy mother’s day.IMG_20130512_154833_986

EGT 011 – Milk, Butter, and Cheese

In this episode, Tim and I talk about diary in and some of its marvelously tasty forms: milk, butter, cheese… and I come to the defense of whole milk. Viva la 3%! Another late one, I know. Sorry guys. But it’s a little longer than usual, so hopefully the extra content makes up for it?

EGT 010 – Composting and Waste Streams

In this episode, Tim and I talk about composting and the logistics of managing waste streams at a personal and community level using the Zero Waste project in San Francisco as a case study. We kinda pushed the boundaries of food-topic relevance with this one, but you can’t really talk about composting on a community level without talking about refuse collection and recycling too. We mostly stayed on point and focused on the composting element… mostly.

EGT 008 – Playing in the Dirt

Now that you’ve figured out what you’ll grow and how you’ll grow it, it’s time to get dirty! In this episode, Tim and I talk about the advantages and disadvantages of planting in-ground, in raised beds, and in containers. Not sure what I did to the sound on this one but, unfortunately, I managed to slam the file so I couldn’t undo it… I kind of sound like I’m talking underwater >_< Listen Now:

Seedling From Seeds

Timo's Seed Starting Setup

My seed starting setup

To go with Episode 7, here is how my little seed starting setup looks like. Pretty, isn’t it? The purple is coming from the fact that I am using aquarium lights with UV output for the fluorescent tubes, and an LED for the white light. The reflective barier is a cheap car window reflector I had lying around.

The heat mat is off now since the seeds are off to a good start. In another week or two, I will move them up to the window, shift the lights and start my next batch of seeds; probably tomatoes.

Kale Pizza

Kale Pizza
My wife made a kale and veggie pizza for the Super Bowl last night. It was awesome except I overcooked it by a few minutes… how could I keep track of it when the Niners were in the middle of a comeback?
