Thanks! I think my existing router has this capability, too. I've never looked into it before. I managed to get my TV on the 5 GHz band and left everything else on 2.4. If that doesn't help I guess it will be new router time.

Cilantro is an herb, not a vegetable. Avocado is a fruit.

EDIT: Upon further research, bbawhm is nearly correct. You like very little vegetables as most of what you like that are commonly considered vegetables, are actually fruits.

From the Mayo clinic: The following are technically fruits: avocado, beans, peapods, corn kernels, cucumbers, grains, nuts, olives peppers, pumpkin, squash, sunflower seeds and tomatoes. Vegetables include celery (stem), lettuce (leaves), cauliflower and broccoli (buds), and beets, carrots and potatoes (roots).

I love my fruits and vegetables. But what I would really love right now is a nice nap.

Technically, herbs are vegetables. "Vegetables are the edible part of a plant, such as the leaf of the spinach or the root of the beet."

Since Fruits are distinguished by having seeds, I will grant you technically Tomato, Cucumber, etc. are fruits, even if we eat them as vegetables.

However, the courts would disagree with you ...

In 1893 the United States Supreme Court ruled, in Nix v. Hedden, on whether a tomato was a fruit or vegetable after taxes had been placed on all imported vegetables. The Nix Klan filed suit against Hedden, the Collector of the Port of New York, to recover back duties paid under protest. Botanically, the tomato is a fruit, but the court ruled in favor of the defendant and classified the tomato as a vegetable and it has been taxed that way ever since.



Oh, and BTW, Corn is technically a grain, not a fruit. It's a cereal plant, along with wheat, barley, or oats.


I left celery & carrots off the "I will Eat" list too.



But if you want to get really technical, there are only 3 basic classifications ... Animal, Vegetable, and Mineral.

So whether you consider it a fruit, grain, herb, or vegetable ... it's all Vegetable!

Simple fix: top them with lemon juice and a bit of freshly ground black pepper. No additional calories and tastes good. Also, I steam the Brussels Sprouts and asparagus.
Sometimes, if I want to do something a little special, and as a treat, I'll do as my Mom did and melt some butter in a fry pan and add some bread crumbs, mix 'em up while they are heating and pour over the veggies. Works on both of the above--not as healthy as I prefer, but a nice treat!

Our Home & Careers people, I think the proper title may now be Family and Career Sciences, will say that tomatoes are now considered as veggies because of the way they are currently eaten.

I don't mind that she put it up, I mind that she removed the other.

It's one thing to add something cute. It's another thing to remove something and add something else in it's place.

That's a huge No-No.

Cucumbers probably are the same. Which is probably what that court decided it on.

These are all delicious when roasted. High heat (400 to 450), a drizzle of olive oil, kosher salt and pepper, on a good baking pan/sheet shaken every 8 minutes or so until brown and crisp. Yum!

I have another recipe for Brussels sprouts that has never failed to convert a "hater", but you need a permission slip from your cardiologist to eat it.

You're not kidding! That recipe is a real killer! How about grilled asparagus? Brush or mist with EVOO, sprinkle with Kosher salt and grill. Turn a few times. Works great when grilling a steak! Oh, yum!
