    I have these two salads I tend to make in large batches on weekends: an Egyptian cauliflower salad with cumin, parsley and corn oil, and a Greek-style chop salad of tomato, onion, cucumber and peppers, with olive oil. I usually put decent amounts of acid in both, in the form of vinegar or lemon juice. Today I was well into salad prep when I realized I had neither.

    Undaunted, and even though I'd already added distinctly non-Asian flavors to both salads, I scrounged through the fridge and came up with soy sauce, fish sauce, and the juice from a jar of Vlassic pickles. I gingerly (no pun intended) mixed them together with some sugar and salt, then added the mix in place of my usual acid.

    My Frankensalads came out SO good. I'm going to be trying this more often.

    @Rachael, I want to try that soup, but it's actually Tamarillos that I have!

    @Slick - JEALOUS. I'll try and find some for you, but let me say this: for sausage making, Fennel is your friend. mmmmm.

    Made some oven-baked french fries, coated in olive oil and seasoned w/ Creole seasoning. Yum. Also have some Asiago cheese, grated and mixed w/ paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder to go on top. Recipe is from here.

    @Britt, my mouth is watering.

    Tonight is a quinoa-pesto salad with chicken breast (marinated in lemon juice, pepper, olive oil, and shitty grated parm from the store) and grape tomatoes. OMNOMNOMNOM.
