    I LOVE miso, you should try a miso sauce on venison, it is the BEST

    I also really like tofu now too, but good tofu, the stuff that is a bit chunky and not all soft and gooey

    Sashimi, the raw fish, yeah, love that too, but only certain kinds, there is lots of stuff on the plate here that I won't touch with a 12' cattle prod

    I'm sure this is what Frank is talking about......

    Funny story

    I just got back from a pick up, the shop was out of Miso, which is a staple Japanese food product, it looks like peanut butter but is is a paste made from fermented soybeans.

    The shop we buy it from is about 5 km/3.1 miles away, not far at all, but the area is rather congested, tons of peds to avoid, so taking the trailer would be really slow and bothersome. I was only getting ten 1kg bags of miso, so I just went on the bike with my messenger bag. I got there in no time, no trailer and I can really haul the mail now (for me at least!)

    On the way back, man alive, I could not believe how freaking heavy ten kilos is!! (22lbs) but then I remembered that I've dropped 16kg/36 lbs

    Also on the way back to the shop there is a longish hill that I used to struggle going up in 3rd gear, today I stomped up it in 5th gear while carrying the extra 10kg/22lbs on my back, and I was NOT wasted when I got to the top either

    Freaking hot and humid here too!

    I'm drinking about 4L of water a day and going through three shirts, but I'm winning the Battle of my bulge!

    Cheers!

    My favorite around the corner shop from work in SF served the best Miso soup (I usually ordered the veggie style to keep it light, because it came in a quart cup). Miss it so much.

    Maybe if I could have it around here my little birdie would be closer to the head of the snake.

    Sharon, I'm a big fan of it in the winter in soup mode, I like mine with green onions and small chunks of tofu, tastes great and really warms the belly. It is very healthy too!

    It might stink when they make it, but Miso has a very nice smell, it is very salty and tasty.

    You might be thinking of Nato, that is also made from fermented soybeans, and it stinks, BAD, but it is very healthy. My wife and daughters like it, but then they eat it, and I'm not kidding, I leave the room, hate that stuff

    OK, if you endorse it, Stu, I'll try miso sometime.
    Nato was the mystery food on an Iron Chef show, you could smell it over the TV.
