Grub's up 9/11/13 (11/9/13)

Up bright and early thinking of food , but first , look at today's date , it's interesting ! Apparently the next time it will happen will be 01/03/05. It's also my birthday which makes it interesting to me and I am easily pleased

Food wise, went out for super slap up meal last night and cooking at homeI today . Planning a Sichuan pepper beef stir fry . Also pottering in kitchen making cinnamon star biscuits .

What grub is up where you are ?

The biscuits sound good.

Enjoy the stir fry.

Now you've got me thinking about dinner.

When I saw the thread title my first thought was this. http://http://www.ehow.com/how_8209220_eat-grubs.html


I'm glad it wasn't.









Wonder how the term grub became used for food?

Time for Google.

But I'm sure you good folks have many answers.

Yes, 9/11 has special meaning for Americans...

Ah yes I understand that . Except to us in the UK this means November . It's the 9 11 and 13 running together that is unusual apparently .

What's special about 9, 11, 13? Is it that each number is two more than the one before it?

I'm thinking of making cumin beef with broccoli, Chinese cucumber salad, and brown rice. I'll be experimenting with using ground beef, 'cause I have some that is thawed and I don't feel like velveting the the beef. The cucumber salad is a new recipe.

I'll try to get the energy to bake an apple pie, so we know for sure there is something that we'll like.

I made ribollita yesterday - an Italian mostly veggie soup with cannellini beans and homegrown rainbow chard. So we'll have that tonight. I may make some pasta or something to go with it.

We've had a lot of rain lately so the chard got huge!
