Rosemary, for what its worth

There's a bunch of rosemary growing around my house, so I decided to check on pubmed for its effect on colorectal cancer.  There are no human studies, but rat and test tube studies seem to indicate it may be helpful.  So, I guess I will add some rosemary tea to my routine.

    Popcorn

    I used to make popcorn with Rosemary, Thyme, Oregono, Garlic Salt, and Onion Salt. Those were the days.

    Trader Joes has an herb popcorn (in a bag) now and it's decent but nothing like homemade.

    Even better: slice up a bulb of garlic and drop it into popcorn.
