John, I love your "Song of the Hijiki" variation.   ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D

Next time, I'll do my best to eat it out of Brokie faithfulness.  Don't want to waste no sheep-nest grass.  :D

This National Graphic title is like a Jack'n'Ennis dialogue:

http://www.thegreenguide.com/doc/97/seaweed
Sea Vegetables: Don't Call 'Em Weeds

Plants are considered weeds when they are growing in an area where they are not desirable. There is a group of plants that we commonly call seaweeds but this term doesn't make sense and it denies the value of these plants in our diets. Like land vegetables, sea vegetables are nutritious additions to our diet. They provide many minerals (most notably iron), a good supply of protein and fiber as well as Vitamins A, B6 and C. (....)

Hijiki (Japan)

This sea vegetable is also high in protein. It needs to be soaked for 30 minutes before cooking. It can be cooked in plain water or in a broth made of water and apple juice. Often served as a cold salad or side dish. Cooked hijiki is sautÚed with tofu, onions and carrots and seasoned with soy sauce and sesame seeds.

Jack continues along. Ennis does not say a word.

Meryl and I had a wonderful lunch today (Friday, July 25) in a restaurant less than a block-and-a-half away from Heath's Broome Street apartment. We love the neighborhood. (We think he liked it, too.)

So: Le Jardin Bistro on Cleveland Place has, like the sign says, 'Garden in Back.' Oh my goodness, does it ever.

Oh, yeah--the Tarte Tatin with homemade vanilla ice cream with mango puree is to die!

So, if you are in New York, and you want to visit the Broome Street locale, take a look-see--it's very good!

What a gorgeous shade-cover.  Lovely.  You two are so civilised.  :-*  (I spelled civilised the extra-civilised way.)  :)

What a beautiful place! :D
You'd never think those photos are taken in the middle of NYC. Hope the waiters weren't rude at the Rue Rude ;)

I love seeing the two of you together. Thanks for sharing. :)
