CULINARY MUSING 001: January 3, 2006 [listen]

Taste Matters

I started going to a nutritionist to help me manage my carbohydrate intake. She introduced me to substitutes for...food.

The nutritionist also spoke strongly on moderation.

I did moderate my consumption, but not substitution. I've heard of tough love, but tough eating be damned!!!

"For health reasons," is a decent excuse, but one does not have to suffer.


Fig Chicken was the result of an impulse buy.

I was at a fresh produce storefront, waiting in line to pay for the regular weekly fixings: tomato, lettuce, onions, peppers, mushrooms, apples, etc.

I turned my head to the right in a huff, and I saw figs in a baggy. I thought about the tasty cookie with the same last name as Sir Isaac, and said to myself, "What if..."

I've repeated this meal for some friends and have received compliments-a-plenty.


Tuna Pot Pie essentially came into being via what was in the cupboard, refrigerator and freezer.

Fresh tuna steak is a decent substitution for beef. When I purchased the tuna, I did not have this recipe in mind.

Taste Matters

Fuming nutrition!
From nose to mouth, mouth to pituitary
Gland larceny--aerobic acrobatics,
(Smells so) good for the taking (out);
Pick-me-up or deliver me. Order me, please.

What lingers on the tongue matters.
Flavor to taste, taste to savor
Fare salutes savants--salivants:
Gestational juices of infernal mastication;
Quibble piddle for a little nibble!

Politely gormandize, then exercise
To the fullest extent of the Law!
