    Thanks for the suggestions! I know I can think of things myself, but it's always good to get some other ideas to expand my thinking.

    Soups mostly, salads second. I like testing knives out on really big jicama too. It is like an apple with some potato stickiness to it.

    And K, it tastes awesome....


    I usually do a stir-fry, with lots of onions and peppers and ginger. Then I'll hit the potatoes and other harder veg. Then I take it to work and just use the crap out of it

    Well, I don't cook professionally, but it's a good idea for those who do.

    3 lbs sirloin
    large onion
    2 red peppers
    5 cloves garlic
    Qt. beef stock
    my MoTone Road Salt
    black & white pepper
    hungarian paprika
    cumin
    2 Tbs pancake mix
    6 dried chilies - (Ancho, Guajilla & Arbol) - seeded, pan toasted and ground
    bouquet garni of sliced carrot and celery
    black beans, small red chili beans and white hominy

    It's freaking delicious

    I've seen handles burned like that a few times. I'm not even going to comment on the beans....
