Preds and Pine Nuts

The Nashville Predators got knocked off 5-3 today by the Colorado was disappointing but we had a great time watching. This was G's first real-live hockey adventure! He was a trooper, although I think perhaps he liked the giant hotdog more than the game. :)

We had "nose-bleed" seats this time (the upper-most deck) but no complaints. I do love hockey!

In other news, I recently discovered that I really like pine nuts in ceasar salad and I need to know where in the grocery store to find them? Are they with the salad trimmings (dressings, bacon bits, croutons) or are they with the nuts? I looked in both spots today with no luck. Ideas? Also, what else can one use pine nuts in?

Happy Monday and happy 2007!!

Happy New Year! Hubby & I were actually in Nashville for New Year's Eve. We all had dinner at Bonefish Grill in Franklin and then went to a our friends' daughters' home in Williamson County and blew off a bunch of fireworks! Our best friends now live in N'ville. We've spent the last 21 years together for New Year's and decided not to break tradition.
NOW, pine nuts can be found with the other baking nuts in my local Kroger & Walmart superstore. I buy them in bulk at Wild Oats Market. Sam's also carries them in a very large, resealable bag. I'm allergic to "real" nuts. So I eat pine nuts and sometimes peanuts.

I'm not sure where to find them in the store, because I don't care for them myself... but I do know that they are used quite often with different pasta dishes, I believe I've seen them used in making pesto, I've also seen them used in some fish dishes. Hope that helps! You could always use one or more of my favorite sites ( or and type pine nuts in the ingredient search and see what recipes pop up. Happy hunting and happy New Year!
