    I am only a newbie here, but I am starting to relate. Our family outing today was to a 13degree (55F) waterhole for a swim and I had to bring my thermometer to decide if it was cold enough.

    You wake up happy that it's 45 deg and the pond is getting cold enough for some serious CT.
     
  8. You could pick anywhere you want for your birthday dinner and you choose to stay home to under cook the fish, eat a ton of oysters and try some seaweed salad.



    And, you child eats a giant bowl of seaweed salad and proclaims he NEEEEEEEEEDDDSSSSS MORE!

    can you tell me about the seaweed salad please - do you buy it ready made or make it? I haven't quite figured out what I am looking at yet at the Asian market. I did see a bag of seaweed salad in the cooler. Is that what I want? thanks

    Those kiddos are way ahead of me! I cannot get over looking at those things. They gross me out completely.

    Good thing they have a really cool mom who knows all about this stuff.;) Wait til they are in school and really talk about this stuff although they probably do know.

    Caroline, be REALLY careful with ready-made seaweed salads. I'm guessing Aussie is like NZ and it is most usually with MSG added, but often called other things (there is a list of synonyms/numbers that can be used)... I've found this to be the case even at the small Asian markets. I have no idea if this is true in the US. Buy it dehydrated (health shops usually have pure stuff) and make the salad yourself to be sure.

    I've found my taste of squid flower as it's called in my Asian store. That was yummy.

    thanks Lauren. so you buy dried seaweed and then rehydrate it and make a dressing for it?

    There is a great NZ company that sells mostly NZ-harvested seaweeds (with some imported from Europe) and I buy directly from them. In bulk! Then I rehydrate to make seaweed salads (and yes, then I make a dressing). But I also just sprinkle it directly on food or into soups. I eat handfuls every day. One easy way is to mash an avocado, add sea salt and some lemon juice and then chuck in a bunch of seaweed. Because it's not re-hydrated some of it (other than kelp, usually) will still be very crunchy (dulse especially) or chewy (like arame/wakame) but it still tastes great.
     
  20. My version of the wakame salad. . . I looked at a bunch o recipes and came up with my own.



    1 bag of wakame, crunched up into warm water till it's soft. You will know! doesn't take long. You need a bigger bowl than you think!!



    2 tbs, rice vinegar

    1 tbs, apple cider vinegar

    1 tbs, raw local honey

    1.5 tbs of actual soy sauce. . .it's expensive because it's an actual fermented thing. I think you could use coconut aminos.

    2 tbs of sesame oil

    Grated ginger, about a tbs - to taste.



    I tasted and made adjustments as desired on the sauce. drained the seaweed in the salad spinner and mixed and refridgerated and sprinkled sesame seeds on when serving. Kiddo L O V E D it.
