    the asian youtube channels i suggested have it all dumbed down so you don't have to worry about making it "off tasting".

    So tonight is was Mark Bittman's Ratatouille. Perfect starter for my foray back into the kitchen. It's summer so I guess I'll focus on dishes using fresh veggies. Simple to prep, lots of flavors and pretty hard to screw up. And I get to play with my knifes. Tomorrow do it again for practice. I want to have most meals I fix to be by memory. It's just easier that way.

    Yay - more videos. :-) They really do help me visualize the whole scenario all the way to what I think it will taste like. Maybe that's why I didn't stay with the fascination of cooking I had in my 20's. Reading a cookbook does not excite my palate. Yet.

    I hate to say it, but I think SpikeC is right. Sometimes water makes me feel a little queasy or I don't like the flavor, (blasted city water) so I flavor it ever so slightly with powdered no-cal something or other and seems to buffer it. Also, you have to lose water - through sweat, and replenish it with fresh water. :-) And keep a small water bottle handy so you have to keep refilling it. It's going to take me all summer but I have and 1 - 1 1/2 inch to lose, and then keep it off.

    AB says food is juicier when your hungry as you produce more salavia. Hunger is your best sauce! Nice line Alton

    Actually I think fresh fruits are your best bet - oranges, grape fruit, etc. No sugar added. My wife says acidic foods are wonderful for helping with weight loss, maybe because they don't add the carb and certainly no fat calories.

    Squeeze a little grapefruit and pulp into your water for flavor and then go sweat it off.
