ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. This fabulous meme was created and hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt who hails from Great Britain. Over time, others have joined in to help host this wonderful and informative meme. We are now in our TENTH round! Some of the participants have been with this from the very first round; others have joined in along the way. Each week we are taken across the globe to see the varied and exciting contributions people have taken the time to discover and capture. We start with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. This week's letter is, "E".
Escarole. Endive. What's the difference? Is there?
My mom loved endive. She even tried to grow in on Molokai. I tried it and found it to be bitter. Maybe it's not supposed to be, but I never learned to enjoy the taste of endive.
"There are two main varieties of cultivated endive:
- Curly endive, or frisée (var crispum). This type has narrow, green, curly outer leaves. It is sometimes called chicory in the United States and is called chicorée frisée in French. Further confusion results from the fact that frisée also refers to a technique in which greens are lightly wilted with oil.
- Escarole, or broad-leaved endive (var latifolia) has broad, pale green leaves and is less bitter than the other varieties. Varieties or names include broad-leaved endive, Bavarian endive, Batavian endive, grumolo, scarola, and scarole. It is eaten like other greens, sauteed, chopped into soups and stews, or as part of a green salad."
Majestic elk. In the northern part of New Mexico, there is a lot of elk. I suppose the hunters like that-particularly when elk season comes around. This one was part of several herds we saw on our last visit to Chaco Canyon.
Hence, the sign.
And a video in case the elk and the sign weren't enough! Let me know if this makes this blog load up too slowly and I will take it down. I've never tried using this feature on Blogger before.
Yep. That's what we refer to the eastern part on the island of Molokai: East End. Used as a reference as a place or destination. It's not that this beach is called East End. But, it is located on the East End of the island. That's what I mean by it being a reference for quite a bit of the island-about a third of it.
