No one wants to play?

Give me a food item that starts with the letter L. And tell me why you like it.

Best answer will win Storey's Guide to Raising Poultry

I'll start.

Lemon Balm, because it makes a great soothing tea when you have a sore throat.

Lemonade

Because it's cold, wet, tangy and sweet.

Hey Phelan, I'm back on after a few weeks and couldn't resist. LASAGNE! Because it's not only delicious, it's fast, cheap and easy (you are what you eat) and besides, a million Garfield fans can't be wrong.

Briana said...

Lemon pepper ~~ I love it on just about anything.

Lime and garlic chicken (from Antof9)

Linda said...

Legumes. Yummy, good for you, and dead easy to cook. OK, that is sort of a food group.

Okay, don't want anyone to laugh, and I'm not really trying to go for the obvious heartstrings here ... but I'd have to say ... LOVE.

It does start with an L.

What can I say? I'm suddenly in a sentimental mood. Was just in the kitchen and pulled out one of my grandmother's old biscuit pans. An old steel pie tin that is black and crusted with decades of flour and grease. She never, never, never washed her biscuit pans. Just wiped them out.

Anyway, I have such fond memories of eating at my grandmother's table on the farm. Though she enjoyed many things, the one thing she enjoyed the most -- and perhaps one can only appreciate this if you have ever been truly hungry at some point in your life --the one thing she loved the most was feeding her family. Every meal was a labor of love and every meal, even if it was just sliced tomatoes and fresh peas from the garden, was an amazing to share with her.

So, again I hope you all will forgive, but I think that love is perhaps the most important ingredient we can use when we prepare food for our family and friends and those strangers we invite to our tables.

And, to cut down on the cheese factor a bit, one other ingredient that everyone should know about is Lapsang Souchong tea.

It's not local ... but.

And amazing smokey Chinese tea. I grind it up and use it as a spice in most anything. Great if you are vegetarian because it imparts the flavor of smoked meat without the meat.

Something I picked up from an Asian friend of mine.

If you can find it, don't be put off by the price. It sells in bulk here for about $30/ounce. But about $4 worth will last for a year. You just need a pinch to flavor any dish and it is great as a rub on meats to give that smokey barbeque flavor when you are quick cooking on top of the stove.

Highly recommended.

With love, of course.
