Got up and went right to the kitchen to boil the chickpeas, fava beans and hominy so I could make hummus, bigilla and menudo. Also on the list of things to do today are Korean beef, and pitas. What are you cooking today?

Korean Beef. I never seem to have rice wine on hand so I used some port wine instead. Now to let it marinate till just before bed time and then break out the wok. Makes a great lunch for the week.

Pita, hummus and bigilla. Normally I use chickpeas from a can for my hummus. But this time I decided to do start with dried chickpeas. This is the creamiest hummus I have ever had. I will never use the canned stuff again. The bigilla is pretty good but not perfect. Will have to modify that recipe over the coming months. It took forever to track down dried fava/broad beans to make it and when I did find it the smallest bag they had was 1 kilo. That should be enough to last me 5 batches so I will have plenty to practice with.

I am looking for ideas. What are your favorite breakfasts? American or international. I have a few things on my todo list but they will have to wait till spring or summer and I am looking for some ideas between now and then.

Fried duck offal, daikon radish chips and a friend donated some pork egg rolls. For dipping sauce I mixed a 1:2/3:1/4 mix of melted butter, honey and sriracha.
