Winter Walk

There is nothing quite like a winter's walk and the rewards that follow.

That kettle, called a Potjie Pot by some, was hand carried from Africa by my daughter for her dad. It is an excellent cooking tool for an open fire as you can set it in a bed of coals. It is cast iron, so hardly a hiking companion.
We started by deep frying some potato wedges followed by deep fried Kibbee (a Lebanese concoction of meat and bulgur wheat, in this case shaped into footballs). The kibbee is a great finger food or placed into Pita for a hardy sandwich.

That sounds good and they sound like the perfect companions to go along with the Utica Club and J&B.

Cheers!

LOL! The last time I had kibbeh nayyeh my aunt made it from a Caribou that my cousin shot. Instead of Kibbee we called it Kibbou. It was good too!
