Speaking of turnips, check this fat little biotch out:

A giant turnip weighing a whopping 33lbs and measuring 4ft long across has been grown in China's Yunnan Province.

The monster vegetable, which weighs more than a three-year-old child, is so big it had been nicknamed the 'fat little girl' in the village where it was grown, The People's Daily Online reported.

Mr Li claimed the specimen, which had been grown naturally without the help of any fertilizers, had become a big attraction and pictures of it have even gone viral.

Not sure about pollock, they tried salmon farming but the natives raised a huge stink about it, too many escaping and passing nasty bugs to wild salmon (and other environmental issues) so they're slowly being shut down. yay.gif most of what's in our markets comes from Asia damned.gif unless you can catch the fish truck, he's got all the wild Pacific fish. And now there's fukushima to think about. sad2.gif

Pan fried trout with salt/pepper and lemon and sweet potato fries done in the oven, but next time I will fry them quickly in oil because I didn't get that crispy exterior with fluffly interior via baking. Unless 400 degrees is not hot enough.

So, while I'm searching for mustard oil without luck, I notice a new noddle bar in the store. So, the Japanese cook (who can't speak a lick of English) is showing me choices...fat noodle or skinny noodle...he points to choice of chicken/shrimp/steak...I ask him if the steak is chewy and demonstrate chewing the hard way, he motions that he does not understand and calls his Manager. I ask her is the steak low grade or high grade...she keeps repeating that there have been no complaints, I reply that doesn't help me because most people do not complain they just never order it again or never come back, and explain that it has to do with the cut and how it is cooked, she repeats her script. Then she recommends I get the chicken to be safe. I say I will try the steak...man o man...chewy as leather. Meh!

Mustard Oil is the bomb, but hard to get.
Here's what Octo and I get
They can't sell if for cooking. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/...981428.cms

Great for the skin and hair though.

Thanks JR, but why am I reading that article stating it should not be consumed, while at amazon.ca it is being sold to be consumed? Damn, the shipping is another $15. I might try looking at an Indian market where I get my curry powder.
