Bay Leaves, Sushi, Fenugreek & Indian Backbeats
Hi Everyone. Here are four fun facts for your reading pleasure.
- Fresh Bay Leaves Smell Like Bubblegum. Do you have access to fresh bay leaves? Not the dry ones sold in the spice section of the grocery store but the ones they sell for way too much money in the “fresh herb” corner of the produce section. Scratch and sniff one of the leaves and you will, I swear to it, be transported back to your gum smackin’ childhood. It is the essence of bubblegum.
- Sun Myung Moon Sushi According to this week's "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me!" most of the sushi-grade raw fish available in the U.S. is supplied by "True World Group", part of Reverend Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church empire. Yowza! For more info, read here. Is "Moonie-Free Sushi" next?
- Fenugreek Reportedly Enhances Breast Size. Google the word “fenugreek” you know that spice commonly used in Indian curries? Well, google it and before you get to any recipe or definition, you will hit 6-7 pages about breastmilk production and breast size enhancement. I clearly don’t have enough fenugreek in my diet. Sigh. Oh, and according to Mahanandi, if you have any extra whole fenugreek, you can actually plant the seeds and grow the plant which is a lovely leafy green veg.
- Susan Campbell, Indian Hip Hop Expert? my site is the first to come up when you google: top club hip hop with Indian backbeats. Heh, ya jealous?
