Ey up BFY....I'm puzzled....why do you always see the question " I see this question. White or brown?"

Because I've not seen that question 'till today, in this thread???

I'm now somewhat paranoid. I've been up north for the weekend and when I return, it's not there anymore. I cannot have imagined it even considering the dementia. Please can someone confirm that the question was asked somewhere on the site?

Sorry beerforyorky, I'm not sure I can help with this! What do you remember the post consisting of?

It wasn't a post, it was more like a banner and went something like this:

Do you take time to reflect before eating a meal?

   O      White

   O      Brown

You could click on the circles to "vote". I cannot remember if there was a 'submit' button but I guess there must have been something.

I've found it! I'm not cracking up. It's when I logout from the forum.

I recently found some brown chickpeas in an Asian grocer. I decided to buy them, and commented to the shopkeeper that I'd never seen them before. He said a lot of people think they're healthier than the white ones.

Not sure I credit that. People always think brown things are healthier and it ain't necessarily so. But I bought them. Thought they'd look interesting, especially mixed with the white ones. Just cooked some. They taste the same as the white ones, just a bit smaller, and I'm glad to note they keep their colour when cooked - unlike pinto beans, which are a great disappointment to me, as their beautiful spots wash off when I cook them  sad

There are lots of varieties of chickpeas Hippytea! My favourite is the enormous white one that they grow up in the Ord River Region in Northern Australia. It is mild and creamy and hardly has any skins.
I see most variety in my Indian shop. The little yellow dahl called 'chana dal' is a type of chickpea, skinned and split. The brown chickpea is small and I do find it (slightly) stronger tasting. Very yummy.

(Even though I have always found it hard to differentiate between the different bean tastes, suddenly I find myself talking like a connoisseur!  shocked )

Enjoy those chickpeas!

Perhaps I will start answering every question that way.

"When are you going to be home tonight?"

"Brown."

Re: Do you take time to reflect before eating a meal?

Yes, on occasions, I do take time to reflect.  Like, what am I going to do with the small amount of sauces, dips or anything that I don't want to waste.
Thereby hangs a question.  I need tiny little containers that I can put such things in with a view to freezing.  I've done a good search and can't find anything.  Anyone able to advise, please?

We have them here. Hold about 4-5 teaspoons of liquid. Screw tops and press tops. I use them for freezing pureed garlic and ginger, tomato puree, and salsa. I'll take some pictures tomorrow when it gets light.
