Beer and sausages: a perfect match Oct 9, 2020

"Forewarned is forearmed". You never know what is going to happen when you leave home, so it is better to be well prepared!
Also, beer and sausages have benefits.
They can help lowering your cholesterol and weight according to this diet doctor:

Does it say on the packaging, which seems to have been souped up since 1889, how many Erbsenzähler (literally: pea counters, meaning: nitpickers) hours go into one litre?


would spoil that soup. And it is a soup, although the product is designated as "Erbswurst" (= pea sausage): Don´t try it sliced on Sandwiches! I hope, this post is frivo-lousy enough and not off-topic.

Toast Oct 10, 2020

Has anyone tried it on toast with Marmite, optionally washed down with a pint of Guinness Draught? The sharp taste of Marmite might complement the milder soup taste, the bread adding a bit of substance. Who knows if the presentation – a unique combination of the German and British cuisines and Irish brewing tradition – would be a visual explosion of colours and contrast?

(I think I know what my daughter would say; whenever I take out what used to be a jar of Marmite but is now a plastic tub – sort of 'SmartMite' for postal delivery – this odd, visceral expression of disgust materialises on her face; she clearly doesn't appreciate the culinary virtues of Marmite.)

Marmite Oct 10, 2020

Every language claims to have at least one word that cannot be adequately expressed in any other language.

The Swedes have lagom. The Danes have hygge. The Welsh have hiraeth. The Norwegians have oljefonden.

Is Marmite the English equivalent?

To be like Marmite. People either love you or hate you. But chances are they think you’re a ****.

OK, it’s not the greatest word in the English language. That one indisputably begins with f and ends in

OK, it’s not the greatest word in the English language. That one indisputably begins with f and ends in ucking (what else, other than no underwear, goes well with literally anything?).

But like man up (sadly now only acceptable when used in a post-ironic kinda way), like Marmite filled a gap nobody knew was there.

But can something so binary and, well, colonial survive in the modern world?

Disgust Oct 10, 2020

I'm familiar with that look on Thomas' daughter's face. The Basques would do all but retch even watching it being lavishly spread on a piece of toast after a trip to the Isles. I can buy it here too, but for some reason it would never occur to me to do so. Having said that, I buy Colman's mustard here. Forget that watery brown-yellow Dijon mess.

Turning to Tom, embracing the full spirit of your thread, I simply cannot stop myself pointing out that "Oh, really?" would be OR.

Marmites, sausages and beer Oct 10, 2020

Thank you all for the sausages and beer!
For diner, I will use these ingredients and prepare a typical dish:

If you want to try, you can find a good number of recipes on the Web, but we have our own secret:

I agree, I don't like Dijon mustard... it's very spicy.

Looks very tasty, but beware: the description says it all:

Belly busting and described as a 'heart attack on a plate' ...

Sorry Thomas but you can't have Guinness and toast at the same time of day. Toast is for breakfast in the morning, and Guiness is for evenings. So the pairing you suggest is an abomination - a logistical and organisational impossibility.

Sounds about right for a 'completely frivolous thread'. 😁

Guinness toast Oct 11, 2020

You can toast with Guinness as well as wine or whatever, can't you? Good health!
