I love freeken.  The texture is what really makes it good.  Dried mushrooms with it is something I need to try.

I liked this combination a lot.  Cooked in Instant pot high pressure 20 minutes after soaking separately for a few hours.  The reason for separate soaking is the need to clean dirt that can be present on mushrooms.  Now I also have a lovely broth that will be used in making of onion soup inspired by @Anna N

We eat a lot of it, too, but I haven't seen it here in whole-kernel form. Bulk Barn and Superstore carry it in a cracked version.

The most "local" one I know of is in Fredericton, an hour or so away depending on the roads. For now, I'm perfectly happy with the cracked variety.

Please tell me you meant 'freekeh'. I went searching for 'freeken' thinking I'd missed some wonderful ingredient I hadn't previously encountered. And as my real name is Ken, I thought I'd like some free!

 

Not that I've eaten freekeh, either. :|

Freeken: (v.) 1. The act of cooking freekeh. 2. A reaction to badly cooked freekeh. :P

Same as last night's dinner. Rustic potato, parsnip and carrot mash with some bacon.

Constantly amazed at the delicious wonders I can rummage up from the bowels of my freezer and the back of my pantry..how's this for a working from home lunch - fat, sweet, raw Hokkaido scallops, on warm vinegary sushi rice, with fresh, REAL wasabi root smeared underneath, and toasted marinated seaweed to wrap each one in and eat like a taco.

Learning there's a clam species called the "incongruous ark" made me as happy as a clam.

there is something unique about Soup'N'Sandwich.

 

even better it is if the bread has  " Good Crumb "

 

everything I see above fills this Bill.

 

however , it seems TurkeyNonLovers use a Mug.  not the end of the world.

 

Soup is alway better in a Bowl.

Short time to eat after getting home from work for a lunch break.   Had some small pieces of steelhead trout that I seared a few nights ago.   Chopped it up and used it to fill some Cuban bread I toasted.  Arugula gave it some more color and a peppery bite

With the Spring Festival due to start on Saturday with Chinese New Year, a lot of the smaller restaurants I like to eat in are already closing down to let staff head home, but I found one noodle joint at lunch time and there I went.

红烧牛肉刀削面 - hóng shāo niú ròu dāo xuē miàn (Red Cooked Beef "Knife Cut" Noodles). I went for the extra chilli option.

In the time it took my husband to drive the short distance to Kroger and get back with the Fried Chicken, I made the mashed potatoes, gravy and peas! :D Very satisfying lunch. Leftover chicken will be what's for dinner tonight.
