I can. It's awesome.

There's a picture from last summer of me in the picture thread drinking a glass of it and pretending to be fancy.

thank you!

Tonight we had sandwiches. They were good and required no heat. (yay!) I like most of your ideas and recipes. (I am allergic to 'pollutants' (onions and peppers) so a few recipes are either totally out of the question or must be revised)

Without onions and peppers I can cook almost nothing.

I just don't like bell pepper. The rest are okay.

What happens when you eat them, jwing?

Edited for grammar because I was being dumb.

::cries:: Hey, I just started leaving the onions in stuff instead of picking them out. I led a sheltered childhood! My tastebuds are just catching up.

Then you're catching up to the point at which we can be friends.

If it helps at all, I hope you get there.

Wow. I only recently stopped picking onions out of food, too. And still pick out the peppers. I also still can't eat onion rings.

Onion rings are the only form of onion I can tolerate...I guess just because they're deep fried beyond recognition.

*drools*

That sounds marvelous, Dr Destructo.

I remembered I have some basil-infused olive oil that would go splendidly with tomatoes and cheese and stuff. Hmmm.

When I eat pollutants, I get sick to my stomach and swell up. It's a mild reaction, to be sure, but an unpleasant one. I just avoid pollutants.

well, drat - i'm late, and i was going to give you some gazpacho recipes (it's _great_ in hot weather)...but without onions or peppers, they aren't much good (i am assuming you can't eat any sort of mild chili pepper either, like anaheims or poblanos)

Here's another one that took nearly no time to make.

Chicken couscous

1 package frozen diced chicken breast (I get the tyson brand)
2 packages Far East Herbed Chicken couscous
2 tbls mediterranean garlic olive oil

Measure out water as instructed on packages of couscous, turn stove to high to boil water. Put in frozen chicken, olive oil, and spice packages. Bring to a boil. As soon as it is boiling, take it off the burner, dump in the couscous and cover. Walk away for 5-10 minutes or so, come back and fluff the couscous.

Tis very yummy and super easy.
