Let's get back to comfort food.

A couple weeks I got a bad bug and had to subsist on broth, fruit juice and creamy peanut butter for a while. When I got mostly better, we looked around the kitchen and found there was not much to eat.

I can't believe what I, a good and proud cook, settled on and absolutely enjoyed - low-sodium Spam, cut into chunks, sauteed and added to pasta with a little oil and some mild herbs. I forget what the herbs were.

Heaven!

The substance you are promoting, and which you admit to having possessed and used, is illegal under federal law in your country. On this law-abiding forum you are promoting the use of an illegal substance. Let me be clear that, in any vote to legalise magic mushrooms, I'd vote to legalise them, as long as they were gathered for personal use, were found in the wild and had not been subjected to any chemical modification at all.

You remonstrated with me a few weeks ago when I'd suggested that you were in possession of magic mushrooms. Since then, several times you've eulogised about them. Well if you've eulogised about them, it seems to me that you've indulged in them, thereby having had possession of them.

Make your mind up. In this country their possession and use are illegal, rightly so in my opinion. They are widely held to be potentially harmful and unpredictable in their effects. It seems wrong to me that you are promoting their use in this forum. Pick them, use them, enjoy them. But I think you need to keep quiet about it.

I use the word organic in the sense of being pure plant based.
"This is your brain (a seed)...this is your brain on plants" - (a flower blooms). Anyone who drinks tea or coffee probably does it for effect more than taste, although orange peco tastes good. Without caffeine you may not feel like yourself.

A proper pharmakon can even enhance and create democracies. Such as a Eleusinian ceremony bringing the population together and Tribes of many cultures celebrating mescaline or ayaquesca or the average Western drunk singing away. Changing consciousness is a natural drive like sex.
Pharmakon is the Greek word which has two opposite meanings - "cure" and "poison". The concept of pharmakon, according to Derrida, produces a play of binary oppositions crucial to Western logocentric tradition: remedy/poison, speech/writing, good/bad, interior/ exterior, etc.

The poison part is usually an alkaloid made by a plant. Some alkaloids are dangerous in large quantities. THC, a cannabinoid, is not an alkaloid. It does not form salts in an aqueous solution (i.e., it's not soluble in water).

I am a proponent of psylocybin because of its ability to jolly good answer actual direct questions. For example I asked the mushroom I was about to eat "what will our new energy source be?" Later before my eyes in 3D space a small circle with a triangle around it appeared. It was indelibly memorable and unique. I did not understand until later that lithium ion batteries are made of lithium Atomic wt.3 and hydrogen Atomic wt. 1. AHA! a small circle in a three sided triangle. Personal questions were also somewhat symbolicly answered. Images with eyes closed also revealed fascinating windows and mirrors of the mind in the form of Aztec art visualization possibly because the strain was Amazonian and I associated it with them although I think the Aztecs were mostly east of the mountains. There is a small learning curve with its use and never caused me any distress. Where I live they use it for cancer patients who are anxious and it changes their entire perspective. Psylocybin is for so much more than that, beyond whatever I can imagine.

Some people live in the past some strictly in the present which is great but I live with a foot in the future and the future has some advantages coming from our neighbors the plants and fungus. Perhaps they always have.

PS My first experience coincided with accidentally seeing the movie Its a Wonderful Life that begins with two galaxies talking to each other, then hyjinks delightfully ensued.

I made a large pot of cockaleekie yesterday, enough to last me at least a week.

A kilo of chicken thigh meat, three large leeks, 200 grams of pot barley, two litres of chicken stock, 100 grams or so of bacon lardons (I happened to have some pancetta, so I used that), some garlic, some thyme, some ground black pepper, just enough salt -- the bacon might provide enough.

Cockaleekie soup (or stew, depending on how much stock you put in it) is an elemental dish that makes me happy just in the contemplation. It can be fancied up or dressed down -- in my impecunious youth, when leeks were still cheap, I made it with plain water and a frozen stewing hen -- but it's always soothing as well as nutritious.

Bananas are sprayed with a dodgy insecticide (chlorpyrifos ethyl) where they are cultivated in tropical countries. This has appalling effects on the plantation workers. It also penetrates the skin of the banana and is found in the actual fruit. I suffer from vertigo if I eat bananas (which is a shame as I love 'em!) I end up dizzy as a duck and vomit copiously, and it lasts for a couple of days. So no more of them for me!
I now 'indulge' in those Piccolino tomatoes (small sweet ones) and black grapes from Spain. And whoopee! those huge black juicy sweet cherries are now coming in to the supermarkets.They're grown here in UK so I imagine no dodgy chemicals.
I think fruit as 'comfort food' has caused me to lose all the weight and turn me into a respectable size 12.

Pick over the strawbs and give them a good wash BEFORE you core them, then they won't get waterlogged.

The last time I grew a bed of strawberries, the whole lot were trashed by a pair of badgers apparently making love on them (I caught them in flagrante delicto). I also had a lot of trouble with those pesky flat-bodied beige millipedes eating them (not the black snakey ones). I gave up on strawbs. Too much trouble.

I shop at a store that sells produce in flats for a very good price because they buy surplus from grocery distributors. I will wash and core all of the strawberries (sometimes a flat is 10 quarts for $2 - this place is great if you're willing to do the work) then freeze them on baking sheets before bagging them. We are the grocery gleaners, we are.

Costco sells frozen organic strawberries that are pretty good, but not nearly as inexpensive as the other place. But the other place has them until they're gone and then you keep your eyes open for when they get more strawberries. I get my blueberries there also and freeze the same way.

I agree that strawberries are nearly always disappointing. They are generally picked under-ripe and they never achieve that aromatic sweetness you expect. However, this year we've found that Morrisons sell a variety called "Eve's Delight 2" which is lovely. M&S sell one called "Red Diamond" which is USUALLY really nice. Whatever you buy, it's imperative to have them with clotted cream. Nothing else does it for us. Mrs Steve chops hers up and adds sugar, a travesty in m'humble. Of course, this advice doesn't wash in Oz!

My smoothies are made with frozen fruit; I've seen people make them on recipe programs with ice, but that waters it down too much for me. My smoothie starts with a ripe banana, then I scoop in about a 1/2 cup of plain or vanilla yogurt, add about 1/4 cup of milk (this is my "super calcium" recipe - omit the milk if you're not keeping track of your calcium intake), then a handful of frozen strawberries. Enough for the flavor and frozen consistency, but not so many that it's too thick to suck through a straw. (I have a jar full of reusable acrylic straws and a couple of brushes for cleaning them next to the sink.)

This is made in the tall Oster type blender. For the process, I usually give the bananas and yogurt a quick spin to smooth them out then I add a teaspoon full of powdered gelatin (this is for strengthening my nails, it doesn't make the smoothie any thicker - I just don't have very many ways to get gelatin regularly, so this is it.) Give that a quick turn so the gelatin doesn't become an inedible lump. Then drop in the strawberries and pulse it till the mix is smooth. If you like your smoothie a little sweeter a little stevia will do the trick; add it with the yogurt stage.

Lots of synthetic molecules are organic, because organic, in chemistry, only means containing carbon. It does not mean naturally-occurring.
On a label: natural flavor = synthesized in a lab to be the same molecule as occurs naturally.

Whether synthetic or not, if carbon is in the molecule, the molecule is by defitition organic.

But LSD is not, to me, comfort food, much as I have enjoyed it.

I have retired the blender to the basement, but banana smoothies are such a good idea that I might just haul it upstairs to the kitchen again.

Even in summer, my favourite comfort food is a large cup of cocoa made with whole milk and Fry’s cocoa powder. I tried several more expensive brands — Callebaut and Ghirardelli (sp?) in particular — but Fry’s delivers the slight bite I like at an acceptable price.

I also like vanilla malted milk, a small bottle doesn't last long so one day I found a 2 litre bottle & decanted it into a number of small malted milk bottles sitting in the recycling bag & froze them, much more economical.

"Organic, in chemistry, only means containing carbon. LSD is indeed an organic molecule. But not exactly comfort food..."

Hell no. Its a synthetic. However the seeds of many species of morning glory contain a naturally occurring tryptamine, lysergic acid amide (LSA), which is chemically similar to LSD and has similar effects. Seeds are used for their strong psychedelic or hallucinogenic mental effects. The toxin lysergic acid hydroxyethylamide, which has one-tenth the potency of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). The toxic effect, at an equivalent dose, is similar to that of LSD but like any ergot the hangover is painful and unpleasant and not reccomended unless a chemist does a complicated procedure. Two thumbs down. LSD is a bucking bulldozer but psylocybin is a cosmic cruise ship with the best library in the universe.

The nearest I get to comfort food these days is red lentils. For some years now I've been on a low carbs regime. No spuds, no rice, no sugar and no grain based flour. I eat lots of vedge, salad, meat and fish. I've never done much in the way of butter, That started with Mad Cow disease and I never really got back to it. I do eat cheese and yogurt, full fat of course. And hemp seed oil and rapeseed oil in moderation.

This started when a blood test suggested oncoming diabetes. I've gone from 18 stone down to 13 1/2 and there have been no repeat warnings.

As a result of the low carbs thing, well cooked red lentils, what is it 40% carbs? taste amazing. It's almost like raiding the sugar bowl as a kid.

For people who have never gone to Yellowstone Park or know a thing about it, Yellowsone would not seem real. It does not mean that people who have gone there are deluded in any way. In fact they are enhanced by the experience. Those who are ignorant of Yellowstone and cast stones at people who have been there are doubly ignorant.
