Right now half of MY body is Jimmy Dean ham and cheese sandwiches.
"can impossibly be determined"
"Impossible" seems to me at odds with "can be determined".
Is that a typeo, or is "impossibly can be determined" some science jargon for "can't be determined"?
i love it - especially with chili and oranges
probably a germanism - not everybody is a native speaker (or a naked admiral)
... can't possibly be determined would be rather posh british english or just english
Das ist wahr.
Mine too, although it my case it's the bacon and egg and sausage and egg sandwiches. Every day for breakfast.
I love those things.
I've ran out of paracetamol
^that sucks. Can you substitute it with something you have in store, e.g. an aspirin?
Thanks @oberth. I tried to translate as closely as possible, which meant to stress the impossibility of determining the correct dosage. Hence the somewhat screwed grammar. Your suggestion is far more elegant =)
My boss is taking next week off and I'll be on a short holiday the week after that. 2 weeks without my boss' last minute orders. YAY!
you are your own boss or everyone's boss for a fortnight?
I assume that's chocolate mousse! (Unless it's a Rosemary's Baby reference.)
My family dropped the quintessentially Irish O' from our last name, back when they came to America 120 years ago. Probably was hoping they'd get better jobs than ditch diggers that way. If I'm being honest.... it's better esthetically this way anyhow. Some names it works with... others? just a mumbly mess
you're right - o'mojochi looks strange
Ah yes, but Moj O'Chi looks... still strange
That sounds like something Starbucks would sell on St. Patrick's Day.
My Irish Grandfather also dropped his "O" when sneaking into the UK in the 1920s
I'll be the boss from Monday to Wednesday. Thursday is a holiday here and from Friday on I have a week off but my boss will be back by then.
Lovely business trip ahead on Tuesday: I have to sample the streams leading to and from Lake Rachel in the Bavarian Forest National Park =) Rather steep ascend, particularly with all the sampling equipment, but the view is lovely
must be 25 years since i was there - all i brought to the place was some brotzeit*, obviously.
* didn't think there was a wiki (albeit a bad one) for it.
that entry must have been made by a Lower Bavarian or maybe Franconian because of the Kartoffelkäse. I come from Upper Palatine and there we have all sorts of potato dishes but I had never come across that one until I moved to Lower Bavaria. I'm not very fond of it but in this province it's considered a national dish.
What they omitted to mention is that raw smoked ham or bacon is esential for a decent Brotzeit.
A Brotzeit can also be warm: hot Leberkäs, a sort of meat loaf, hot Wieners/Frankfurters or Weißwürste (white sausages made from veal and pork, seasoned with lots of parsley and a hint of lemon peel). All three are served with mustard and a crispy roll or pretzel. (And Weißwurst is never ever served with Sauerkraut! *glares at proprietors of a Bavarian restaurant in LA* - that's like sushi with ketchup!)
Another very popular brotzeit dish is a sausage salad with lots of onion or with cheese (then we call it a swiss sausage salad).
If you'd like to try out some genuine Bavarian recipes I can wholeheartedly recommend "Bavarian cooking" by Olli Leeb.
It's only available second hand but it's the genuine stuff, not the modified recipes cooked out of Bavaria that you mostly find on the internet. Tip: at Amazon you usually find the book at an outrageous price. Have a look at abebooks or similar second hand book sites. You can often find a bargain there. The same author has also witten a cookie recipe book and it's the bee's knees! Best recipe book I've ever found.
kartoffelkäse is an abomination. it's not franconian either - lower bavarians and austrians are the culprits.
i saw americans order weißwürste, sauerkraut, french fries with a side of ketchup and diet coke in the weißes bräuhaus (now renamed to schneider bräuhaus) in the 80s. they didn't get it of course but i still don't understand how they made it out alive.
... and i said it's a bad wiki.
a brotzeit to go (i. e. to take with you on a hike) needs to be stuff that can be wrapped in waxed paper, like sausages, pieces of smoked ham and cheese and of course brezn as you carry that stuff back to civilization and empty beer bottles are heavy and bulky enough to be annoying.
^and Fleischpflanzl (meat patties) ! Yum =)
read and weep with me, @oberth :
https://redliontavern.net/menu/ Weißwurst with Sauerkraut and Holsteiner and Wiener Schnitzel with red cabbage - that menu is not for the faint of heart (not stomach).
https://www.wirtshausla.com/food now, this looks better, though Obatzta with mustard is a bit like cheese with jam. But at a first glance this seems to be the only abomination on their menu.
random fact about me: tonight I'll try out a recipe by @Jim Gamma: scones with chives and cheddar (though I have to substitue the cheese with a medium-old Gouda). I think those scones will make a nice Brotzeit for my sampling trip to Lake Rachel tomorrow =)
