S is for "So Many"

May 9th, 2011 at 05:23 pm

I was checking my list to see what I had put down for "S". What a list: spices, soups, stews, salad, salmon, struedel, sandwiches, salsa, star fruit, shrimp, scallops, subs, strata, squash, salt, sea salt, and a new word I learned: "stewp" which is a soupy stew.

I honestly don't know where to begin. Which of these gets the honor of representing "S"?

I guess I could do a little combining -- I can't imagine making a soup, stew, stewp, or strata without spices. It's interesting how a spice can change the taste. I like tarragon, especially when using potatoes. I use an awful lot of turmeric because it is supposed to be very good for you. I have been using sea salt in place of regular salt, because it supposedly means you can use less and get the same amount of flavor.

As for salads, growing up, I thought there was a green salad made with iceberg lettuce, and then a couple of salads like bean salad and potato salad. I tell you, I grew up kind of naive when it came to food. It's interesting to see how salads can be so different. And how a different type of lettuce can make it a different salad. Then there's the whole thing about mayonnaise salads and vinegar salads. It's almost dizzying to think about them all.

So, I'll admit it...I took the easy way out. Any "S" foods you care to add?

    Having lived in Germany for a while, I can think of lots of excellent sausages that lead to hearty dishes in the Fall and Winter especially. Good stuff. Or, thinly sliced with cheese and fresh veggies on thick, dark bread? Yummers. That is totally making me hungry. There is a market nearby that sells German and Austrian sausages, but they are really expensive and we have no insurance that we'd stay within the food budget if I bought sausages all the time. I will have to just think about it for now...
