My oldest son sent me an email with this joke attached: A young man saw an elderly couple sitting down to lunch at McDonalds. He noticed that they had ordered one meal, and an extra drink cup. As he watched, the gentleman carefully divided the hamburger in half, then counted out the fries, one for him, one for her, until each had half of them. Then he poured half of the soft drink into the extra cup and set that in front of his wife. The old man then began to eat, and...

Just came back from the doctor's office where I was told I have water on the brain. Great. Now, everytime the temp drops below freezing, it'll freeze and everything will will slip my mind! :lol:
Joyeux Noël et bonne année de Suisse !
Thanks BDL! I just couldn't figure out what fond de veau meant. Got the de veau part right but fond threw me for a loop. All my dictionary gave me was melts, back, and bottom, non of which made any sense to me. Don't feel embarassed. I live in the French speaking section of Switzerland so your position on the French may still hold true! :lol:
Our local paper ran an article about Father Christmas and included his recipe for his Christmas dinner. Thought it was cute and hope you do as well. Forgive the metric measurements.

A recipe of Father Christmas. Main dish for 6 people. 500 g of shallots 2 bunches of parsley 150 g of...
I've decided not to get the shot based on my own reasons. However a friend of mine, who is a doctor and heads one of the medical divisions at our cantons trauma hospitals, told me a couple of days ago that it's been discovered in Norway (or maybe Sweden...I forget) that the virus has mutated. A baby had died in Bern, becoming the first fatality in Switzerland, and he was urging me to "protect" myself by getting it. He was also telling me how the emergancy room was...
I made some doughnuts the other day. When I made the glaze for them something went wrong. Granted I was trying to do it from memory but still! I ended up with something more like frosting. The glaze never hardened like it would when my mom made it. I used 3 cups of powdered sugar, 1 TBSP softened butter, 1/2 tsp of vanilla, and just enough milk to wet the mixture. It looked right but after coating about half of the doughnuts, I finally gave up and threw some cocoa in with...
Reminds me of what my neighbors in FL use to say when I was learning to bake bread. "Don't worry, we eat mistakes!" and did they ever!
