    Default Wife is cooking up some chicharone

    And I post that here as I can physically hear my arteries cauterizing with every bite.. but is it good...

    BUT damn (you know what goes inside the brackets) I do have to rig up an outside fryer this summer.. It will be a couple days before the evidence has passed from the air in the kitchen...

    That "evidence" is why I don't like those things. Smells like burned flesh. Because that's what it is.

    Yuca is the food of the gods. We had some yesterday boiled with chicken breast in a soup.

    :LMAO:...You probability paid good for it too, it is VERY perishable and needs care or processing and freezing to have any kind of a shelf life....

    And I noticed about the taste of it.....

    It varys with the weather, sometimes it has the flavor of Braiziel nuts, and others, it gets soft and mushy like stringy mashed potatoes, and when it is raining, it gets hard and you cannot boil it tender........


    But I like it, it is good roughage and what not for the body, And it will fatten up a pig good out on the Finca...

    For me, the food of the gods, is Mango fruit! I love mango season in Nicaragua (except for the ones that fall on my zinc roof in the middle of the night!)... in season, often eat a breakfast of nothing more than mango and banana slices!!!!!

    We had a humongous tree on a rental property one time that the entrance to the house passed under it.......

    One day walking into the house, a nice big ripe fell and caught me just back of the head on my neck, and knocked me to my knees......

    I ain't been right ever since....

    I truly love the fresco made from it and the jelly in the mornings on buttered toast....

    Mangoes, too. Definitely. You can get yuca in the produce section of the grocery store, but we get it frozen.

    Of course, that's with a "gringo" pronunciation!

    The Nica pronunciation being Jew Kah. The only thing I don't like about it is the "bones," if you know what I mean.

    Speaking of "bones"... I have a question... Why do Nicaraguans generally leave the bones in their chicken dishes, especially soups and stew, like arroz aquado? I know a lot of you guys don't like arroz aquado but I do! Maybe it's an "Irish thing"... we love stews of all sorts and dipping our bread in gravy, and any kind of "goulash" or mix of foods, like "shepherd's pie"... man o man.. I love shepherd's pie!
    But when I dig into my arroz aquado, no matter who has made it for me in Nicaragua, if I am not careful, I am likely to come up choking on a chicken bone. This has happened with other chicken dishes as well. So , what's up with that?

    supposedly the bones and marrow give it more flavor. Ever have sopa de huesos, its made up of beef bones with barely any meat on them.

    Ranchitos here in Granada serves up bone soup every Monday. It's a bowl big enough to take a bath in and it's only 30 cords. Wednesdays they have chicken soup and Fridays they serve mondango (sp) Tripe soup.
    I rent rooms in my house by the day, week, month.

    Default Ranchitos

    is two blocks east (towards the lake) of the Nica Buffet. It's the bar on the corner and the soups are sold at lunch time.

    I was in Leon in January and discovered Chancho Y Yucca. Basically a yucca sundae topped off with tasty pork and Nica slaw.
    Quite possibly one of the best meals of my trip!
