i love cilantro. could eat heaps of it on certain dishes.

as far as fridge freezer surprises go, i've been taking frozen quarts of mystery meals to work lately, to not waste food as well as save a few bucks.

the other night i knew that i'd brought in a container of some kind of greyish soup. it turned out to be a pretty good ol' experiment wjth a classic french lamb stew.

it was damned good. it apparently got better while in the freezer. lol

Yes, thanks. In the live and learn dept., I was going to confess this yesterday, but could not think of the name of the herb at that moment. I once rolled several pieces of chicken in dried fenugreek and when it baked, took a bite expecting the flavor of my home-made herbs de province mix I thought I had covered it in. Yick. I'm sure I looked like the cat does when he gets a carpet thread in his mouth by accident. Another sad case of "I'll remember what's in here."

I've never had fenugreek. (That I know of.) How does it taste and what is it good in?

I've only used it as an ingredient in curry--sorry, don't know how one would use it alone.

That leaves more cilantro for Niquejim and me! Shrek doesn't like it either...so I don't have to share!

Very common in curries. I like the stuff, freshly ground. I get nauseous at the smell when it's stale. It's almost always stale in "curry powder".
