Barbecue Time~!


Feeling anxious? Your mood may actually change how your dinner tastes, making the bitter and salty flavours recede, according to new research.

Mood makes food taste different

This link between the chemical balance in your brain and your sense of taste could one day help doctors to treat depression.

..The work has also generated interest from flavour houses — companies that develop chemicals for the food and drink industry — who are interested, for example, in making foods taste just as sweet with half the amount of sugar. “

Theoretically there would be the possibility of enhancing your meal with drugs that affect brain chemicals so that things would taste better — you could have a ‘designer taste tablet’..”

The good ole brain chemicals..uh uh… serotonin , noradrenaline, tryptophan.

As for me, I’ll pass on the new “drug” they discover, and just take the chocolate thanks. smileyhelmut.jpg

    I just started an eating plan that does not include all these things. How yummy they look. I’m thinking I’ll just pop over here and think I’m eating this stuff and then my brain will believe it. Mind over matter. I can start my own study and see if it works. Brain food. ya think? wonderful pics!!

    Oh man! The wife and I are on a diet! Can’t have it!

    Sorry, but you’re just going to have to delete this post.

  4. Comedy Plus says:

    Wow, all of that looks good. I’m coming over to your place. Just saying.

    Have a terrific day. ;)

    The best bbq is homemade! You can buy a cheap smoker at Home Depot for around 60 bucks and you’re on your way. I did a simple Jim Beam and Heinz 57 (I stopped boycotting them when Kerry lost), mop sauce on some ribs I smoked for eight hours. Tender and juicy!

  6. Freedom, by the way says:

    My mouth is watering, Angel!

  7. Bob Mack says:

    The best virtual BBQ in the blogosphere!

  8. Christopher says:

    Angel, I knew by the title that when I arrived I would find one of your FANTASTIC food post’s and thus be starving at this point!

  9. Always On Watch says:

    I love ribs that have been barbecued! Anything barbecued, really.

    Caveat: If one is scheduled for any kind of glucose test, don’t eat ribs or other meat with BBQ sauce for at least three days before the scheduled lab work. Those sauces will give a false positive for diabetes!

    One more little-known fact about BBQ sauce: It can result in a false positive for alcohol on a breathalyzer test.

    BTW, one can do an oven barbecue if it’s raining too hard to fire up the grill.

  10. Always On Watch says:

    PS: Wish I’d been at your house for the BBQ, Angel! This menu looks heavenly.

  11. Brooke says:

  16. Bunkerville says:

    Why did I think we might be in for some great pics again! As always, a great one!

  17. Joe says:

    That is the most decadent, unhealthy, greasy, cancer causing, saturated fat filled meal I have ever seen!

    How can you possibly keep that to youself?

    Please fax me over a large serving of each item.

    I am drooling.

    (Some say I do that all the time anyway.)

    Lucky I just ate before dropping by. It would seem a full belly is the only defense to some of your posts :-)

  22. Frank says:

  27. KingShamus says:

    The flag pie is absolutely out of control.


  28. Kid says:

    Woman, that’s some good looking food. All of it.

    By the way, I read about a new drug that erases all your bad memories and leaves the good ones. Seriously. So, I guess life Can be fantastic.

  32. Jenny says:


  33. Leticia says:

    LOl! I am not big on BBQ so the only thing that truly looked appetizing was the asparagus!

  34. Mikael says:

    If only all those “experts” would shut the he** up, get a real job and stop telling me what I should eat and drink, I’d be much less depressed”

    That’s some meal you composed there, though. I’m feeling hungry already! :-) Have a great and cholesterol-filled weekend.

  35. Teresa says:

    Yum, Yum, Yum! That looks like a huge smorgasbord.
