Sorry Lyndalou...ebly is the trademark (I think its produced my Mars?) its a really tender grain of wheat that is really easy to prepare, you just cook it a little like rice and it takes 10 minutes and its makes a good side or base for salads. We'll be having it fairly plain, cooked in stock tonight.

i have an angus london broil defrosting, and some chicken legs, and a meaty ham bone.

dw says she's gonna take a stab at fried chicken, but if not, i may put the legs in a mango chipotle marinade/grill sauce for grilling tomorrow. also, the london broil will sit overnight in a dry rub of dried oregano, basil, parsley, onion powder, soy sauce, s&p,

the ham bone will be stripped of meat and fat, and tossed into the crock pot to make spilt pea soup. going to look up recipes for it today.

so far, i'm going to render some of the fat, sweat diced carrot-celery-onions, put into crock pot with bay and rosemary, chicken stock, peas, and remaining ham and the bone.
Spring is finally here! I got so excited that I wet my plants...

the makings for corned beef, cabbage, boiled potatoes, Irish soda bread, are already in the works.

I won't be home on St. Patty's Day so I want to make sure I have my corned beef fix before taking off again. Plus, the sandwiches, ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh the sandwiches.

Ugali(stiff porridge) stewed ox tongue and Kale. How I used to dislike that as a child growing up in Kenya. And now, can't wait.The family do not like the ox tongue but like the stew and kale.

Its 75 and sunny here which is highly unusual for early March. I am grilling myself a burger and I'm going to cut up a fresh pineapple for desert.
