FOROP  =  PROOF,  GLUMO  =  MOGUL,  SORDUH  =  SHROUD,  CATTHH  =  THATCH   —   Giving us:  OFOGUHODTHT

Clue/Question:  When he suggested changing the restaurant’s menu, she considered it . . .

Answer:  FOOD FOR THOUGHT

(As long as it’s not all vegetarian, and the prices are not prohibitive, I’m down with it.  Locally grown means less fossil fuels were burned, getting it to your plate.  And, organic means it wasn’t genetically modified, and there’s less of a chemical element in the food’s production.  That should translate to healthier for you, AND the planet.  Locally grown also benefits a lot of the smaller family farms.  The big corporate farms can be very questionable, on a lot of levels.

Great jumbling of the clue words, today.  I didn’t have much trouble with them, but I liked them.  Especially “mogul”.  It’s not your typical English language word.    And, “mogul”, “shroud” and “thatch” are all new additions to the ralis95 clue word database.  Three new clue words, in one day, is pretty impressive, Mr. Hoyt.  I was less impressed with the answer letter layout.  Nothing super obvious about it, I just think switching the first two and the last two words might have made it a little more challenging.  You know me.  I love to nitpick!  I’m guessing that these characters in the cartoon are friends of Jeff’s.  He mentioned something about more friends in yesterday’s jumble spoiler comments.  What’s the name of the place?  Chaka’s?  Go ahead, buddy.  Give them a further shout out.  Unclerave’s is averaging about 1300 views per day.  Hey, folks!  Mention Jeff Knurek and get 5% off your total bill, when you dine at Chaka’s!  Just kidding.  But, that sounds more than fair to me.   Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Chef Franc would be Frank Orrall, lead singer and founder of one of my favorite band’s in the world, Poi Dog Pondering. He will actually be cooking for my wife and I and a few friends next week. When he’s not touring with Poi, or Thievery Corporation, he is a chef for hire. He also brings along his guitar and stories from all over the world. It will be a blast! Chaka, is Frank’s long time Girl Friday. She is his sous chef as well as the band’s go to person for everything. Food For Thought was a great chance for me to show a little love to two great people.

    Wooohoooo Unc — averaging 1300 hits a day!! I’ve been gone (am back–kinda–it’s the 16th)!! I worked my jumbles daily (dear husb even made up a couple for me on paper (from the internet) when I could not get to a paper!). I so enjoyed all the puzzles — but missed my Unc’s Wordy Weblog. I’m now catching up with comments and your dazzling input. LL
