Bro is traveling and bought tickets to the Rockies game tonight, which is now in a water delay, due to a water main break.  Who knows when it'll get played.

 

 

And they aren't playing in Oakland?  Thought that was the land of water main breaks, sewage breaks, etc.

Edamame?

That was my nephew's comment, too, heh.  They are in Denver v Cincinnati.

There's a restaurant near me that serves this appetizer ... sort of an Asian equivalent to chips and guac ... is an edimame dip togarashi chips.  Is actually quite good.

And if I'm looking at that menu... I'm going with the steak

So Chief was really close with his "soybean" answer!

Chief might have been making a snarky guess.

 

Maybe. ;)

Because they are immature soy beans.  :)
 
Just boil 'em and salt 'em and done.


Immature? Soybeans cry until they get a puppy.

I know.

 

Interestingly although I know that they and other types of soy are vegetables, I don't really consider them to be so.

 

My nieces are vegan.  Every time I am at their house, I come home and crave green, leafy vegetables.

Also, people tend to associate "soybeans" with animal food despite the popularity of "soy".
 
Lots of recipes with edamame floating around nowdays.


Animal Food... That's what I eat... My doctor says I have the diet of an average Puma.

yes, I eat with her at home, but eat what I want away from hone, or when I cook for myself. I enjoy her cooking, but also enjoy bacon

Good for her.  My nieces eat far too much of the stuff made out of soy that mimics meat, etc.

I think I could give up meat (and have done so for various periods of time) but I just can't give up dairy.  And although i don't use a dozen eggs in a month, I still want them when i bake.
