Try bigos, pea soup or Breton beans.
Lima beans baked in a rich tomato sauce with baby onions.
Home-made cauliflower soup.
Baba ghanoush with lots of garlic. Or skordalia (one head of garlic to 1 1/2 lb potatoes - breath's good enough to strip paint or wallpaper at ten paces.)
Leek pie.
..... and, let's not forget, a mound of steaming, golden barbecued onion rings! BLISS! (also great for Dutch ovens.  ;D)

Photo from New Zealand? (Riddi, is my guess right?) Interesting looking dog, looks like a border collie-kelpie cross. Which means it would be a seriously intelligent and capable dog.

Ahhh, my favorite snack.  A sardine sandwich:  a can of sardines in hot sauce (sans the tin can) between slices of an English muffin...  Good stuff.  Goes down even better with a beer. ;D  Of course, I will be burping fish in about a half-hour. (Eat it now; taste it later.) :p

Sardines are an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids.
Whereas Doritos are an excellent source of artificial colouring.
There are natural and organic alternatives to Doritos with less sodium and no artificial coloring.

Which one can get in high quality capsules from Vitamin Shoppe.
Not the same. The body absorbs vitamins from food differently than from capsules. I have a class in five minutes, so I can't go looking for evidence right now, but I'll try to find a good article tonight.

Sure are! We love the blue corn chips we get from our organic grocer.

Which I take as a supplement, but I still like fish meat better.  You can actually chew fish.  (Well, you can chew the capsules, too, but I wouldn't advise it.)

Of course, if you really like salty, try eating anchovies right out of the can.  One pound of salt for every ounce of fish.  Blech! :p  No amount of beer can wash away the salt taste of that.

The MSG in Doritos gets to me these days.  It never bothered me before although I wasn't paying much attention back then.

Never liked sardines.  I'd rather have my farm raised Tilapia from Sam's Club.  ;D

Yeah, I will admit that sardines by themselves or in mere olive oil are rather bland.  You really need to have them canned in mustard or hot sauce for them to taste good.

Hot Sauce belongs on French Fries but wait, this was discussed 2,000 posts ago.

Shrimp and cocktail sauce ... Yummy.  ;D

I'm just in the mood. Glenn Miller, or John Lee Hooker. Take your pick.
