Well its been a week since Emma has been home and my diet has changed back to the usual, RICE with everything.

Yes there has been other things too, Pancit  the other day and today as i walked into the kitchen there in the saucepan was this bone with a lettuce leaf and a few potatoes floating , i have seen this before and i called it knuckle soup. now i cannot eat this so its more for Ems .

Yes i did miss her for those two weeks but i think chips is on the menu for me tonight, a few chip butties yum yum yum.

I bought two 10 kilo bags of rice last week and about half of it is already gone.

I began buying and cooking rice regularly months and months before my girlfriend at the the time got to the US to become my wife.

Throughout my childhood, the only rice I'd ever had was Uncle Ben's and that was served with butter and sugar on it! I can't believe I eat at least some every day now.

Accompanied with malt vinegar and a pint or three? 🍻

This sounds like it might be a form of bulalo. A carabao (or beef) bone broth soup. We make that often here in the US using beef soup bones with a lot of meat on them and some veggies like pechay or baby bok choy cooked in a pressure cooker. Very good and healthy soup.

My mother-in-law just made a version of this last night for our dinner. We use the shank "chops" they have here. You get meat around a circle of bone in which the center is filled with marrow. Last night's version had pechay and green beans in it.

Well all i can say is that Emma must have cut most of the meat of that bone before i came in, when we was in Dubai and with many other people we went to a restaurant where they had this soap and everyone but me went crazy for it  , i just had the lettuce leaf a few potatoes and lots of bread .
