But now you need to explain some of it to the Swedes and Non-Swedes, though--like what 'neeps' are (me, I love 'em!) and why the surname 'Menzies' is pronounced 'Mingus' or why--

How did we ever live without youtube?  :laugh:

Now I'm hungry for krumkake/cannoli/Schillerlocken/goran!

Me too...   :-\

All this food talk will have that effect on you.  ::)     :laugh:

Me, I'm hungry for some haggis* with neeps* and tatties*--

Haggis - sort of a bigger, slightly vanilla version of boudin noir--sort  of. I'm not explaining this very clearly-- :-\
Neeps - turnips.
Tatties - potatoes.


--with a wee dram of Lugavulin!


Weel, if fine chocolates and wines can have notes of leather or dirt, why not iodine?

 ;) :) :D

You bet, friend!! Here's a picture of Kelda, Callum, and me the very first time I enjoyed a lovely tower of haggis, neeps, and taties at Scott's restaurant near Glasgow, Scotland!! It was divine!!

May 2019 be better for us all.

If there's dirt and leather in "fine chocolates," I'll stick with Hershey's.  ;)

That's all good and well, now you just need to explain what boudin noir is.....   ::)

As far as I know, haggis is the stomach of a sheep, filled with meat and stuff.  But, vanilla in that??   :P

What I should have done on New Years Eve: I (and hubby) should have remembered that it was our 25th anniversary! :o
It occurred to me only today. ::)

LOL Chrissi!!

Probably a good thing that both of you forgot.  ::)

If one of you remembered and the other one not, the result might have been....um.....less pleasant...   ::) ;D
