In my continuing attempt to eat only what is already in my fridge and pantry all week, this recipe, which I found in WomenHeart's All Heart Family Cookbook (Rodale, 2008), appealed to me because I knew I could adapt it easily. The original recipe was called "Happy Heart Pasta Primavera" and included shrimp, tomatoes and broccoli. Since I didn't have those items, I decided to increase the amounts of some of the other ingredients, like onions and carrots.  I imagine the original recipe is really delicious, because this scaled-back version was pretty good, too, for a simple Sunday night supper.

This year's Super Bowl features two teams -- and cities -- with much in the way of grudges. But that won't stop fans from creating them. Fans can start whipping themselves into a proper frenzy right now by sharing their love for either Baltimore or San Francisco -- and Wheat Thins -- via Twitter and or Instagram. Baltimore fans should simply Tweet or post #BAL #MUSTHAVEWHEATTHINS from now through Sunday. San Francisco fans have to tweet .... something else.

WASHINGTON -- A federal trade panel ruled yesterday that a flood of Canadian wheat shipments to the United States is crippling U.S. farm programs and said imports should be curbed.The decision by the International Trade Commission is seen as a victory for the Clinton administration, which sought restrictions. The finding could strengthen the hand of top U.S. trade and agricultural officials in resolving differences with Canada over trade in wheat and other agricultural goods.In its decision, the bipartisan panel held that the surge in durum wheat imports over the past four years drove down wheat prices in the United States, increased U.S. government subsidies and requires retaliatory restrictions, such as quotas or tariffs.

Behind the new U.S.-Canadian wheat agreement, which ostensibly averts a trade war at the expense of American pasta eaters, lurk hyper-costly federal farm subsidies that hit taxpayers coming and going. Consider: the federal government generously doles out $1.9 billion a year to wheat farmers to support the market price of their crop. At the same, good old Uncle Sucker spends another $1 billion a year to encourage farm exports that tend to drive down the price of wheat.This is part of a very big business.

Why is the "100 Days of Real Food" family so annoying? That's a real question. The 100 Days family is not universally annoying and they're not motitaved by avaraice or gluttony or anything ojbectionable. Far from it.  So, what is about them? Why did this post on Civil Eats make me want to hose them down with grape soda? Take this visit to the grandparents, when Mom turned suspicious about the whole-wheat pasta her father was making: "...I had to resort to digging through the trash to find and inspect the empty box of pasta.

A minor revolution, in the form of cheese lasagna, had come to the cafeteria at Hampstead Hill Academy, but the struggle had only just begun. Kitchen staff accustomed to heating pre-made meals had to wrestle with sticky pasta noodles, then brace for balky eaters on this, the first "Meatless Monday" for Hampstead Hill and other Baltimore public schools. On Mondays throughout the year, cafeteria menus will be all vegetarian - a first for city schools and, it's believed, any large school system nationwide.

BEIJING -With the global economic crisis producing unrest in rural areas, Chinese authorities have taken emergency action in wheat-growing regions that are suffering from their worst drought in 50 years. The three eastern provinces that account for more than half of the country's wheat production have seen winter rainfall levels as much as 80 percent lower than normal, the National Meteorological Center reported. In a sign of how seriously the government is taking the drought, state-run news media reported that the State Council, the highest level of executive authority, discussed the crisis Thursday.

NAIROBI, Kenya - Pirates prowling the treacherous waters off the Horn of Africa hijacked another merchant ship yesterday, at least the second in four days, amid growing international concern about a 21st-century version of an ancient security threat. The Hong Kong-flagged cargo ship Delight and its 25-member crew were captured late yesterday morning off the coast of Yemen, Beijing's New China News Agency reported, citing the official Maritime Search and Rescue Center. The vessel was hauling 36,000 metric tons of wheat to the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas, the news service reported.

It doesn't really make sense that the United States, the world's premier wheat-growing nation, should be importing wheat gluten from China. But after American quotas on wheat gluten were removed in 2000, the price fell by half and imports poured in. U.S. producers can't compete; the surviving domestic firms are able to supply only about 20 percent of the demand. Now it turns out that one way two Chinese firms were able to sell their gluten so cheaply was by adulterating it with melamine and perhaps other industrial chemicals.

Nutritionists advise us to eat more bread, pasta and grains. However, besides rice, cornmeal and grits, there don't seem to be many grains around to vary our accompaniments or entrees.One grain deserving more attention is bulgur wheat, which has a rich, nutty taste and is an important ingredient in Middle Eastern cuisines. The most famous bulgur dish in the West is tabbouleh, a Lebanese salad with parsley, mint and tomatoes. But there are many ways to use this versatile grain.In Jerusalem, I've had peppery bulgur wheat topped with spicy meat stew, a specialty of the Kurdish Jews.

Mugabe at a political rally instead, the American ambassador said yesterday. "This government will stop at nothing, even starving the most defenseless people in the country - young children - to realize their political ambitions," said the ambassador, James D. McGee, in an interview.
