Good way to try new stuff..

Friday, June 28, 2013

I will just share that I was at the grocery store today and asked for a lobok (Daikon or Japanese radish for people who may not know). THe produce lady said she had them and went and got them. Several women were going by as I picked it up and asked what it was. I asked if the store ever did a product display in produce and planted a seed. She had a knife in her pocket, so she told me I could break off what I needed and she would slice up the rest (with dip) to put on display. Since she had it in her hand when another lady asked, she did peel and slice some for her..... and the customer bought it on the spot... Hope that seed will bring other results too. I told her that when I lived in a city, the little fruit/veggie store did this all the time and that was how I got to try and learn about new foods.... The lady who bought was probably in her 70's..... Yeah, to people wiling to try new things!!!

WEll, nasty weather today, but I got out and shopped before it really rained... got lots of fresh produce on the first day of the sale....grapes, lobok, grape tomatoes, turnip, red peppers,etc. and then I tried something new too, haddock... well, not really new, but I usually buy it battered and just bake it. Today, I followed a recipe and baked it, and OMG, was it ever good.....I followed their recipe to make my own tartar sauce, and saved about 60 cal too. Add spinach, brown rice/quinoa mix, cucumbers and tomatoes and no wonder I am stuffed.... It was all so good...

So Buddy and I did not get our walk in today, I better walk with Leslie tonite....

    I loved the idea that people were learning to try new things and that you planted that seed - I too have been to places where they would do a product display and/or have a rack of recipes available for how to prepare produce and/or various meats.

    I love trying new stuff!

My favorite way for daikon is the way I first tried it...cut in sliver thin sticks mixed with sliver thin sticks of carrot and turnips. Same amount of each. Mix with a splash of rice vinegar and a dash of sugar or sweetener YUM! (to me anyways)

    Are those the ones that are white and look like a ginormous radish? We had some of that and it was really good.
