What, not a full-blown adult Snork? I’m mortified ;- )
We’ve got spam, spam, spam, rum and spam…?
What’s the louse situation like, do you know?
Meanwhile, as the waters burble merrily down the road and the cat sulks, I am constructing paprikás csirke, which will contain uncanonical mushrooms* and be nothing like as good as the Ma’s version.
*very good at this time of year if you knows where to find 'em.
Sossinges wiv Garlic Mash & Mushroom/Onion Gravy here.
Ready in 10 minutes
Oooer. And possibly also ‘missus’. I predict an influx of Dunnock and others, tapping pathetically upon your windowpane about, erm, now-ish.
I am too full for easy flyin’. That Fish knows why.
Gimme ten minutes.
But will said Fish tell us what Deliciousness it was?
Might yer bee have this for brekkers?
I have taken note of the Very Useful shopping lists and must say - no, I must - that Paprika Chicken is high on my list of very desirable meals, wot I hardly ever have, so that’s lunch taken care of.
Spring Watch calls, to one of our number, so I’ll pour myself a Tanqueray Rangpur (pressie) with soda and tappy-lappy off.
Dere Bee, should the opportunity ever arise, thattiz what I shall feed you. Canonical or wiv fungus depending on yer Beely whim.
Enjoy yer Gin.

It was this:
Recipe for Pork Hocks (Schweinshaxe)
I didn’t have any juniper berries, so I didn’t put them in. And I didn’t give it quite long enough under the grill, so it wasn’t entirely crunchy, but I have never made it before and only did it because there were a pair of pork hocks in Makro with a short sell-by and a reduced price a couple of months ago, and they were in the way in the freezer yesterday so I took them out. 2.042kg pork hocks @ £3.19/kg, reduced to £5.
We had pickled red cabbage with it.
Meep! Sounds utterly gorgeous.
Knuckle sandwich, anyone?
Them’s usually a Special Order Fishy, because they take so long to cook. I have had them both ‘soft simmered’ & crunchy ( finished orff in the oven).
Usually served with dumplings & sauerkraut, which I don’t like, I think that pickled red cabbage is a much nicer alternative.
If I had thought I would have known you’d know them of old!
I didn’t have any sauerkraut, but I did have a jar of pickled red cabbage, so that was that.
All that said…
[feeble bedraggled tappity tappity on the Carinthial Winder]
Much better, IMO, Fishy
A meal for 2 to share, with any leftovers taken home in Doggy/Dunnock Bags…
In Austria they are called Stelzen rather than Haxen, & are very popular.
If our campsite friends ever pre-ordered them at the Gasthaus, they would take Tupperware containers or lidded casseroles with them, so that Lunch for the next day was secured.
Taking a Dunnock would have been less faff.
Ah, but also less Lunch ;- )
Quite a bit less, I dare say. One does like a secure lunch…now I feel mean.
