Friday Foodie Word ~ ABULON

Today’s Foodie Word was selected by one of my furried friend readers, Texas.  Texas is a Parisian cat who immigrated to New York because…well, his staff owners did!  Go check out this four-legged handsome boy.

On to today’s word…

Texas chose Page 4 and the 4th word down.

In this dictionary, some of the words given are just in another language to English, as is today’s word,


Spain ~  Abalone.

A bivalve mollusc, Haliotis tuberculata, and other species of the genus Haliotis, found in warm sea water worldwide.  it is larger than the oyster (up to 13cm/5in).  The edible part is the foot; the frilly mantrel is discarded.  Abalone may be eaten raw if very young, but normally must be tenderized before being braised or sauteed lightly (less than 1 minute).

Maybe Texas the cat would like a sampling of this!

So who’s going to give me next Friday’s word?….

  1. pices and herbs are common in most foods around the world today. Both are used to flavor foods and some for medicinal purposes. Herbs and spices have both been prominent throughout human history. In earlier times, herbs and spices were considered luxuries and only available for the use of the wealthy. Herbs and spices were also traded frequently between nations in medieval times. Many people do not know the difference between an herb and a spice. There are many similarities between the two, and some of the differences are very subtle, but they are still valid.”
