  1. Your blog makes me hungry. I’ve wondered before about the lovely simplicity of living on a few basic, local foods like they did in the “old days”. Of course, up here that would be soy beans and venison. For you, lizard and cactus. Maybe not.

    • Makes me think of “Under the Tuscan Sun” … and now I’m going to have to read it again!

      Don’t forget citrus fruits and pinto beans. 😉

  2. Mmmm…sauteed lizard and cactus, with a side of pinto beans, followed by orange jello with mandarin oranges. What wine would you serve with that?

  3. For us, it would be salmon, hazelnuts, apples, and rainwater. I think I live in a tastier part of the country!

  4. I could live on salmon.

    • I don’t ever remember eating fish — other than breaded fish sticks or McDonald’s fish sandwich — when we were growing up. And for a long time I resisted eating salmon, just gagging at the thought of how fishy it would taste. Then YD taught me how to poach salmon in lemon juice and white wine and I love it. We vow to eat it once a week with steamed broccoli … it’s a good thought, anyway. 😉
