F for Filé

We have this seasoning thanks to the Choctaw Indians who lived from Florida through Louisiana, due to the base being sassafras. It is typical for gumbo and other grand cajun and other folks eats. It is available as a powder today, can't say for how long.

I'm not even near perfect, but I know someone who is.

E is for escarole

this is a member of the chickory family, popular in Italy; it is usually wilted, sauteed, or cooked otherwise in some manner. Very often used with sausage and beans. It is very, very good for you to eat. Really, it is since it has high values for essential vitamins and minerals

Per Cup, it has high values of vitamins A-Beta Carotene-Vitamin E-Vitamin K (240%DV)-B5-B9, 4.2g fiber, 11 minerals, 18 amino acids, 1.73gPro, 0.22g lipid Fat, and rates 22kcal for energy.

C is for Cantaloupe

Odd, I thought a loupe was something a jeweler might wear to look more closely at a ring or stone. I can't imagine hoping to look through a melon at anything. hahaha

Maybe that's why it's "Cant"-a-loupe?

Blue Cheese

Did you know blue cheese was the original label prior to the French co-opting it with "bleu" cheese? Did you know there is a difference between Blue Cheese, Roquefort, and Gorgonzola?

Of the last two, one is from goat's milk, the other from cow's milk.

A is for acorn

Not just for squirrels, but be ready to prep them correctly and boil them well. You'll need to read up on this a little before you try it.

One of the things that English speaking folks have a problem with is accessing several letters of the alphabet for words. When it is restricted by A-Z the issue arises where, to be original, one cannot continue. Hence, let us just skip ahead on those letters. But give it the good ol' college try there as best we can. Do it for the Gipper.
This is for anything edible such as foods, dishes, plants, spices, nuts. Let us not go there with edible fake foods created from petroleum products, etc. We are trying to be healthy-ish.

I'll start off with Z, allowing the next to begin with A

Z is for zucchini
